Columbus Throwback: Incredible Universe
Now if you aren’t from Columbus you may not know what I’m talking about, but does anyone remember when the Incredible Universe opened up in Columbus? I swear I remember it being insane. REALLY insane. People came from all over the state. Imagine if Barack Obama decided to move the White House to Mill Run in Hilliard. It was literally THAT BIG of a deal.
My parents used to go there all the time just to walk around. They would let me run around in there for an hour or two and play the 3DO or the Virtual Boy until I couldn’t see straight. I could only afford CD’s from there but my parents wouldn’t let me buy the ones I wanted. Luckily I went there with another family and I was able to purchase the only 2 things I wanted: The Warren G – Regulate…. G Funk Era and Snoop Doggy Dogg – Doggystyle albums. I didn’t have headphones so the CD’s were shortly taken away from me after my mom overheard some of the lyrics.
DISCLAIMER: I was home schooled during this part of my life so I may be completely mistaken about the impact Incredible Universe had on Columbus.
