Weird Wednesday-It's All About the Foam

In the western part of Virginia, there's something may be strange and yet, really cool. Like Foamhenge in Natural Bridge, Virginia. Mark Cline of the Enchanted Castle Studios made the full size scale replica of Stonehenge, all made of Styrofoam. It is painted to resemble the original. It first appeared on April’s Fool Day in 2004. It has appeared on MSNBC, Fox, Discovery Channel, and TBS, along in National Geographic for Kids, Washington Post, U.S.A. Today, international magazines, and in several books, and on the cover of Strange But True VA.

Got the itch to visit Stonehenge, but can’t afford the plane ticket to England? Well, then Foamhenge may be more within your budget. It’s free to visit and is open daily. The attraction is just north of the Natural Bridge on U.S. 11, near the Natural Bridge Caverns and the Natural Bridge Zoo.

I love Cline's work! His dinosaurs were amazing outside his monster museum and his work in Virginia Beach at the Nightmare Mansion as well as the Ghost Pirate Ride also in Virginia Beach are just amazing things to see - this man can take you on any journey he pleases with awesomeness!

I agree, Julie Anne.

That's neat. I wish I lived close enough to go see it.
