Originally, the Great American Pyramid was an arena.  It was built in 1991 and Bass Pro didn't move in until 2015.

I've been there.  It's bananas.  The boats in the boat showroom are actually floating.  There's a whole bowling alley.  The gun floor had a $70k handmade rifle for sale.

I once saw the treasures of the tsars in that pyramid. And the pharoahs. And Michelangelo's slippers.

Auntie Cheesus: Originally, the Great American Pyramid was an arena.  It was built in 1991 and Bass Pro didn't move in until 2015.


We looked around inside shortly after it was finished.  It was kinda cool, I guess, but I was never quite sure why dad hadto see it.  Maybe he passed up a chance to run a crane during its construction.

Johnny had contemplated for months purchasing the pyramid, one day he was out fishing with friends near the site, and the topic of purchasing it was brought up. Someone said "If it is meant to be, there will be a sign". Within 5 mins or so, one of the group caught a HUGE fish, and that was decided to be "the sign".
100% how he decided to finally purchase it.

I saw Gun's and Roses at the pyramid during use your Illusion series.

That pyramid is going to be the symbolic tomb of the fishing gear industry gets before long.

/The decades long decline in freshwater fish population has gotten phenomenal
//Every place is overfished, and limits mean nothing to people
///Pollution is a factor too, the algae and carp have taken over a lot of impoundments
