Why isn’t this place more popular than Disneyland?

As soon as I saw this sign, I knew I had to slam on my brakes, cross two lanes of oncoming traffic and nearly kill people so I can take a peek.
Usually I resist the urge to visit every advertised attraction. For 500 miles in South Dakota, I had to put up with the world’s only Corn Palace signs. I did not take the bait. When I rattle off my list of regrets on my deathbed, I don’t think missing the world’s only corn Palace will make the top ten.
Out West, you see a lot of fucked up place names. I read that some early settlers and Native Americans did this to keep others away from their claims. Often, you pass places such as Death to All Creek, Killer Bear Gulch, or Flaming Genitals Ferry.
As you can see from the photo below, this place is not so dismal.
