Jacob's Review:
   Dr. Pepper used to be called a Waco! It's where Dr. Pepper was invented a long time ago! The building was hit by a tornado once and you can still see where it was fixed!! There is a statue (Animatronic wax figure) that comes to life when you push a button. He tells a long story that is good, about how he invented Dr. Pepper, but littler kids might be scared of him (I wasn't scared, though)!!! Be sure to check out the Old Well, and have a real Dr. Pepper - made the old fashioned way! Ask about Hot Dr. Pepper!?
   The Dr Pepper Museum offers exhibits that begin with the creation of Dr Pepper and show how Dr Pepper has changed over the years. The Dr Pepper Museum sells soda at their old fashion soda shop. The soda tastes much better because it is hand assembled by mixing flavoring with carbonation and water.

Dad's Notes:
   Wouldn't you like to be a Pepper? I had no idea that Dr. Pepper was invented in Waco! The tour is relatively short, not a big museum, but interesting. It was cool to get an old fashioned Dr. Pepper at a real Soda fountain! Jacob had a good time! Built in 1906.

   A neat gift shop with everything Dr Pepper!

Jacob Tip:   Look at the top of the building you can see a round line of different color bricks, that is where a tornado broke off part of the building.
