The House on the Rock in Spring Green, WI is a very strange and unusual place of an eccentric millionaire who collected EVERYTHING. Swords, dolls, jewels, beer steins, organs, music
boxes, as well as the world’s largest carousel and much, much more.
It’s probably one of the craziest places we’ve ever been to.
I wanted to go see it because I really enjoyed to read about it in Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.
We got to this roadside attraction a bit late, so we didn’t have time for everything.
I wanted to see the carousel from the novel American Gods. The largest carousel in history played a big part in the novel.
The ladies selling the tickets started arguing with me, saying how we should go to other parts of the house, over and over again.
This should have clued us in that something evil was afoot…
Neil Gaiman said that he had to tone down the craziness of the place for his book, otherwise no one would have believed it. Mind you, it’s a book about Norse gods and the new gods that attempt to take their place.
Now we know why.
