Yelp cranks unleashed

Yelp isn't just for ranting about restaurants. Here's a sampling of what online reviewers had to say about Central Ohio “landmarks and historical buildings.” Warning: Yelp users are a tough crowd.

World's Largest Gavel, Ohio Judicial Center

2 out of 5 stars

Jonathan M., Philadelphia: “Almost worth going to see, but with it being blazing hot in the summer, the fountain not being turned on or not working, and a security guard that comes out and yells at your family for being too close to the gavel (our kids climbed up on it because there's nothing there to stop you from doing so without the fountain working) I would say it's not worth paying for the one parking spot you can find, to get yelled [at] and see something big made out of aluminum.”

German Village

1 out of 5 stars

Ashley T., Manchester, Maryland: “I had read awesome reviews about this place, but when we got there, I found myself aimlessly walking around searching for something to do.”

“Field of Corn,” Dublin

3 out of 5 stars

Michelle V., Santa Ana, California: “It's worth driving by if you're heading somewhere. Not worth walking in, especially if it's cold.”

Ohio Statehouse

1 out of 5 stars

Thomas B., Dublin, Ohio: “Haunted Statehouse was sooooooooo boring. But I got a chuckle when the one lady said, ‘There are many things in this building that defy science and logic.'”

Hughes Hall, Ohio State University

3 out of 5 stars

Courtney Q., Bethesda, Maryland: “I'm grateful so far that the classrooms I've used here are nicely air-conditioned, and if not for its outrageously sluggish elevator, this facility would get four stars from me!”
