Miniature Mount Rushmore and King Kong at Freedom Station
PRESCOTT VALLEY — If you’re not a stickler for the real thing, and if your budget doesn’t allow an extended trip to see the real thing, there’s a miniature facsimile of Mount Rushmore waiting to be viewed at the Freedom Station here. It’s not nearly as big as the real thing in the Black Hills of South Dakota, but there’s no admission fee and, for the same price, visitors also get to look at replicas of King Kong climbing the Empire State Building, the Eiffel Tower and the Golden Gate Bridge, all in less-than-actual sizes.
Inside the family entertainment center, a wall designed to attract rock climbers is built to look like Niagara Falls, and every hole on a mini-golf course is patterned after such places Yellowstone National Park, Hawaii and California redwood country.
The Station is located at 2992 N. Park Avenue.
