New York’s hottest club may be whatever Stefon Meyers is preaching about on the latest episode of “Saturday Night Live,” but the UK’s hottest tourist attraction is a plastic tunnel. Yup, really.

People are traveling to Bude, a seaside town in north Cornwall, England, to visit a tunnel that connects a supermarket to a parking lot. It was built to protect shoppers from the elements, but has turned into a larger-than-life phenomenon. This is not a joke — they’re even comparing it to the Sistine Chapel and the ruins of Pompeii. It’s ranked as the town’s No. 1 thing to do (out of 50 other destinations) on TripAdvisor and even has its own Facebook page. Allegedly, you have to see it to believe it.

Speaking of TripAdvisor, some of these reviews are wild. Don’t believe us? See for yourself:

And then, of course, there’s this:

Admission is free and is apparently the only place in the town you can walk in a continuous straight line, and all ages are welcome.

So if you happen to find yourself on the English countryside any time soon, maybe it’s time to visit this magical, “great for a divorce,” plastic wonderland — and don’t forget to report back to us, would you?
