The principals of Uranus Missouri near St. Robert, Missouri, presided over a lighting ceremony Saturday night at the complex’s new, Route 66-themed neon wall.
Here’s a photo of the animated neon on a 20-by-55-foot wall that features a rocket ship, Cadillac Ranch, Blue Swallow Motel, Wigwam Motel, Roy’s of Amboy, Blue Whale of Catoosa, Ted Drewes Frozen Custard and a Route 66 shield.
Here’s a video from the ceremony of the self-proclaimed mayor of Uranus, Louie Keen, and his sidekick and comic foil, Tiffany Baker. The countdown of the lighting begins about the eight-minute mark.
Uranus Missouri already has a huge and elaborate neon sign it installed about three years ago.
Uranus Missouri, known for sophomoric humor to draw in tourists, includes a creamery, escape room, sideshow museum, ax-throwing venue, world’s largest belt buckle and its now-infamous fudge factory. Forthcoming are a brewery and a miniature golf course.
