We went on the train. We saw a grass hill, some dead avocado trees, an over grown mango tree and some other trees I have no idea what they were as all the paint had worn off the signs. Not a pineapple plant in sight....More

The inside is terribly dated and kitsch but you can climb it for the funniest photo ops around. Would not spend more than 10 mins here but worth popping past for a good laugh and snapshot.

Went to visit the pineapple. It is still there but nothing else is but a small souvenir shop. Don't waste your time.
