Starship "Pegasus"

So I was driving to Dallas, TX this weekend and had to stop for gas in Waxahatchie, TX, which is about 20 miles south of Dallas on I-35. The only thing that ever happens in Waxahatchie is that there is a Ren Fair that goes on during the summer that I remember going to as a class field trip in middle school. Anyway, I'm stopping to get gas, and on the side of the road, right next to the gas station, I spot THIS! Apparently it's a Star Trek style "Fun and Games" place that existed in the early 2000s.. (according to the gas station cashier) and closed down. It's got a putt-putt golf field behind it (completely overgrown and missing parts) and is for sale.
So being the geek that I am, I had to take photos for you guys....the crazy things you see in roadside america...;)
The website (seen below!) still works though, even though it apparently hasn't been open since 2005. They were looking to expand it to "Phase II" which included Planet-shaped buildings, and a hotel. The 2nd website has photos and a news story about it's construction with lots of photos...*pewpewpew!*





Here's what I found:
