Are you trying to score brownie points with the Mrs?





















Or just gay?

Over rated IMO. Been there, done it. Won't do it again. Even the wife doesn't want to do it again.

I've heard it's better to go on a weekday unless you like standing 2.5 hours in line, but that was pre-corona so it might not be as bad now.

Bingo!! It is insane around that place on a weekend. There are usually three or 4 tour buses full of visitors on top of everyone else. I would try and make it a mid week trip.

go to the flea market thing in jewett instead.

You could easily come home with a homemade cake, a rusty shovel and a new pet duck

Thanks to the couple guys that actually gave sound advice. We will do something else thanks to this advice. To all you other tools, I hope you were able to increase your testosterone levels by a few points this morning at my expense.

It’s not a horrible experience but Texas Ranger museum is much much better.
If you do go, there is free parking in the back. The friendly Baptist church charges you to park. Lol

Did I mention the Rangers museum is much more educational and won’t cost as much!

One of my wife's vendors took her and some of their other customers. She said some of it was interesting, bought a shirt, and doesn't want to go back.

She's admittedly not a big of that couple though.

Same. We were in Waco when my daughter went to state for powerlifting. My wife just had to go over there. We were really disappointed. There was a line way down the sidewalk to get in and it was extremely underwhelming once we did.

I'd stand in that line if I was guaranteed a chance to kick one of them in the taint.

The next MF that mentions ship lap in my showroom may get the same treatment....

Girlfriend and I went, it is very over-rated. Good lemonade in the food court but we will never go back. We were already in Waco for a graduation and stopped by and neither one of us were impressed. My girlfriend did not even buy anything and that never happens!

I went with my wife once. That was enough for me. I would say it is boring for a lot of men that are there with their wife. My wife likes it a lot though. She has went back several times with friends.

Dude, if this makes your wife happy, plan away! I’ve taken mine there. Hell, I drove mine to see the Pioneer Woman’s place in Pawhuska, OK...because she asked me to. There are very few things I won’t do if my wife asks...because there are even fewer things she won’t do if I ask. I hated Magnolia Market, but we weren’t there for me, so I shut up and let her do her thing and she was happy...that makes me happy. I’m sure she thinks TTHA Extravaganza is dumb as hell, but she still goes with me every year. So treat her to a good weekend in Waco and reap the “rewards” of a happy wife.

There is some kinda Mammoth dig site, and a Menonite Homesteading thing where they make whatever Menonites make. (blacksmithing, wood working, etc), as mentioned Texas Ranger (LEO, not baseball) Museum.

I guess you'll have to google it. Never been but family has.
