Billy Bob's Wonderland is a FEC restaurant operating in Barboursville, West Virginia that has the Rock-afire Explosion. Their Rock-afire Explosion is in very poor condition, with each character having faults.
The Billy Bob's Wonderland franchise dates back to 1989 with its first location in East Barboursville. There was a second location that opened in Ashland, KY but no opening date has been confirmed. The current location opened in 2003 and was a lot bigger than the two previous locations. Both shows from the old locations were brought to the current one but only one was put on stage. That would be the show from Ashland, KY.
There is also an amusement area with mini golf and go-karts. This section is called Billy Bob's Adventure Golf & Go-Karts. This section was closed in 2016.
From 2014-2015, the show was restored by David Ferguson. Most broken movements were repaired, the controller was replaced, and the cosmetics were also replaced. Though the show got fixed, most of the parts were aftermarket and did not last very long.
As of January 2019, the show was in very poor condition. The characters’ masks are melting, Mitzi has a broken arm, Beach Bear is wearing a walkaround head, and Looney Bird doesn’t work. The show is currently undergoing a restoration by Brayon Giles and Anthony Ybarra.
Billy Bob’s Wonderland also have 2 Spare Rock-afire shows in a trailer behind the restaurant. These are used for spare parts.
