The Goonies House: The Review

Last week I went on vacation with the family to the Oregon coast, more specifically the town of Warrenton which is nestled between Astoria and Seaside. Logic dictated that we visit the Goonies house.

For those of you unfamiliar, "The Goonies House" is the house that Mikey and Brand lived in, the one they were trying to keep from getting turned into a golf course. It's a real house, owned by a regular person and it's roughly half a mile off the main drag in downtown Astoria. We showed up Thursday afternoon around 3pm after having caught a matinee of Guardians of the Galaxy (two thumbs WAY up). The house is at the top of a gravel driveway and out of respect to the neighborhood, the owners ask that you park a couple blocks away at a nearby school. It was sort of amazing to not only see how many people couldn't read the clearly marked signs regarding the parking but just how many people were there to see the house on a random Thursday afternoon in August.

I don't know what more to tell you. It's just a house. I'm not sure what I was expecting, the truffle shuffle? Sloth? Mouth? Data? I don't know. On a scale of 1-10 I give the Goonies house three quarters of a Baby Ruth.

Oh yeah after leaving the house we also drove by the school they filmed Kindergarten Cop at. I took a picture of it while sitting at a stop sign. No one yelled "it's not a tumor". Two thumbs down.
