Antares Point Visitor Center and Gift Shop

Kingman, Arizona

ArizonaShopping

Antares Point Visitor Center and Gift Shop is located about 20 miles from the heart of Kingman, Arizona. Though the business is new (compared to Route 66), the original A-frame structure it is housed in has stood for nearly 60 years.

Formerly the Kozy Corner Trailer Park, Gregg Arnold purchased the property in 2000, transforming it into current gift shop and perpetual showcase for his artwork.

Antares Point Visitor Center and Gift Shop is probably best known for its giant green roadside attraction, Giganticus Headicus, a 14 foot tall head that is part Tiki, part Easter Island Moai, and all kitsch.

Some of the other artwork you’ll find at Antares Point Visitor Center & Gift Shop have included giant robotic ants crawling up the side of the A-frame gift shop, a windmill with blades made from 1950s furniture, a plywood rocketship sign, and a drum full of “baby rattlers” (don’t worry ophidiophobes, they’re rattles for babies).

A new “Guardian of Route 66” sculpture made by Arnold was unveiled at the site in 2021. The 16-foot-tall statue depicts a woman waving an American flag and carrying a big Route 66 shield.
