Destination Weirdsville: The weird and wacky Foamhenge

Adam: This is my intern William P. Hefferdink. Don’t call him Bill or Billy. He’ll probably shank you if you do. I’m giving him the reigns for this edition of Destination Weirdsville just to see if he can be trusted. Take it away Mr. Hefferdink.

William: Thank you, kind sir. May I take this moment to say how wonderful and amazing you are?

Adam: You may indeed.

William: You are one of the greatest people I know, and a wonderful writer to boot.

Adam: You’re too kind.

William: I know.

Adam: Ok, I’m leaving now. Tell them about that thing we discussed earlier.

William: Which thing would that be?

Adam: The place I went a few years ago. The one in Virginia.

William: Ah, yes. Aye aye, Captain.

Okay my fellow fans of the amazing Senior Ickes., I’ve been assigned the task of telling you a tale of mischief and intrigue, a tale of terror and suspense, a tale of FOAM!

Yes, I said foam. Confused? You shouldn’t be. There is a place called Natural Bridge, Virginia. Named for a naturally formed stone bridge. How unoriginal, right?

Where does the foam come in? Just off the side of the road, up on a hill, in a spot that’s easy to miss if you’re coming from the wrong direction, lies Foamhenge.

Foamhenge

Foamhenge in all its glory!

Foamhenge is a replica of Stonehenge, only made from giant blocks of Styrofoam. How’s that for weird and wacky?

The creator of the strange roadside attraction (which is free to visit if you happen to be in the area) is one Mark Cline of Enchanted Castle Studios. He’s also created such attractions as House of the Living Dead (also in Natural Bridge),  the Scare Witch Experience (Lexington), and Professor Cline’s Time Machine (Virginia Beach).

If you’re into weird things, I’d highly recommend seeing this before it is gone. It is made of Styrofoam after all, it won’t stand up to the test of time like its inspiration has.
