KRSL.com Special: Lucas Gets Bowled Over With Visitors

Bowl Plaza in LucasWhen the Bowl Plaza was envisioned nearly five years ago, only a few persons imagined this was a good plan for Lucas. Since then more than 3,337 visitors have come to Lucas to sign the register and experience the latest in toilet facilities.

That number of visitors, more than 3,000, does not count the many who do not sign in and make any comments.

From June to the end of year 2012 visitors from 24 foreign countries, 48 states and Washington D.C. have signed the register at the Bowl Plaza. The two states not recorded include North Dakota and Hawaii.

All these visitors have impacted the local area. After making their social call to the Bowl Plaza, the visitors discovered Lucas has other attractions as well. Business owners on Main Street have indicated their sales have increased considerably since the opening.

In alphabetical order, the list of foreign countries who have signed the register include: Albania, Australia, Belgium, Canada, China, Czech Republic, England, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland and Italy. Others include Jamaica, Korea, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey and the United Kingdom.

Nearly all of the visitors who signed wrote comments about their experience. Of the several thousand statements, some of the most creative ones include: "I wish my room looked like it", "no need to read newspaper", "a royal flush", "bowled over", "most time ever spent in a bathroom", "looks like art from Italy", "first time I've taken pictures inside a public bathroom", and "made my day!"

The Bowl Plaza is open each day from 8 AM to 4 or 5 PM depending on the weather. Encourage your friends and relatives to 'go' to this unique facility and sign the registry. This visit is worth the experience.
