He’s a mean one, that Mr. Grinch. He always manages to get himself into trouble, so is it really a surprise that he’s found himself locked up in jail this holiday season? You can only steal so many Christmases before it catches up with you and you get locked away. He might be in jail, but he’s not in solitary confinement. You can stop by and see him by visiting the Grinch’s Lair at the Texas Jail House.
Visiting hours are in the afternoons and early evenings every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from Nov. to Dec. 23. He’s also taking visitors on Dec. 20 and 21 so the kids can come during the week when they’re out of school for Christmas vacation. Tickets are just $10 for this fun-filled event.
What to Expect
This isn’t your normal jailhouse visit. There won’t be glass between you and the Grinch, and you won’t have to communicate over the phone. Instead, you will get to see the Grinch and his lair up close and personal.
Before you make it to the Grinch though, you’ll get to see some of the Whos from Whoville. They’ll entertain you in the lobby and the short-term holding cells and probably prep you for what to expect when you see the Grinch. He’s a hardened criminal now, so they’ll want to give you the details before you go in.
Then, they’ll hand you over to the Grinch. He might be doing time, but he’s an excellent host. He’ll take you through his lair. Expect some hijinks to ensue. Do you really think the Grinch can give a normal tour? It’s going to be a bit wacky, so you will share a few laughs with the other visitors.
Oh, and don’t be surprised if his dog, Max, makes an appearance too. The Grinch would be lost without his best friend.
The Grinch’s Lair is going to be one of the hottest tickets in town this holiday season. You want to arrive to the lair in style, and McLarty Toyota in Palestine, Texas, can help.
