August 23, 2018 – West Bend, WI – If you were a fan of the Galactic McDonald’s, 1140 S. Main Street in West Bend, you may want to pay a last visit as changes are ahead.
The golden arches is undergoing a large interior remodel which includes removing the galactic theme and the play area. A new playland with interactive technology will be put in its place.
McDonald’s is going with a more modern, contemporary theme.
The changes take place this month with a goal is to remain open during construction.
On a history note: The Galactic McDonald’s first opened Feb. 28, 1996. “I was there when the special sauce for the Big Mac was mixed at the store and when the Hamburgler crawl thing, bouncy fry girls and metal slides were in the outdoor play land,” Sharon Ruplinger said recalling how they had to shut down the play area when it was “real hot because kids would burn their legs.”
