The Wheel Inn From “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure” Is Closed For Good


Alas, the Wheel Inn is no more! According to Bob Pratte of PE Bloggers, the iconic truck stop and diner off Interstate 10 in Cabazon, CA, (which was made famous by the 1985 film Pee Wee’s Big Adventure) closed its doors for good on Monday, September 23. The diner is next to the Cabazon dinosaurs, massive concrete dinos that were built in the 1960s to bring additional customers into the Wheel Inn. While the Inn is closing shop, the dinos will remain open as part of a creationist attraction.
