One of the best things about Classic Hall are the shadow boxes in the lobby! It’s worth a visit to Pop Century just to admire these and stroll down Memory Lane. The shadow boxes contain items from the 1950s to 1980s. It’s fun to say, “Hey! I remember this!”
Pop Century Through the Decades
The resort is divided into four sections that include the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980/1990s. Each area of the resort showcases nostalgic items from that era.
The 1950’s section highlights the classic film Lady and the Tramp as well as a jukebox and bowling theme. The stairwells are bowling pins! The 1950’s section has a swimming pool in the shape of a bowling pin.
The 1960’s section serves as the main hub at the resort as it’s the central area past Classic Hall. Baloo, Play-Doh, and the Hippy Dippy Pool are highlights in this section. The Hippy Dippy Pool is the area that hosts fun and games as well as nightly Movies Under The Stars. A Yo-Yo serves as the stairwell here!
Moving along through the years, the 1970’s section has a courtyard of Foosball. A Big Wheel Bike and Mickey Mouse Phone serve as building icons. Giant 8 Track Tapes are the stairwells!
