Scheels is one of the best stores I have ever seen!! A walk of presidents in wax, a ferris wheel, animals that are stuffed. It's the coolest place to see. Abraham Lincoln talks! says his famous speeches. Quite a few of other presidents also. I highly recommend to visit this place!!!

We visited this store and there is so much to look at. We spend two hours looking at fishing and Hunting items. The Farris wheel and the fish tank inside were pretty cool too

This is one of the most pleasant sporting goods stores to shop!!!! You are greeted when you walk in the door, treated like a treasured guest throughout your visit, and thanked when you check out!!!!
Where ever you are in the store, there are PLEASANT associates with knowledge to help you find whatever you are looking for. I have never been disappointed by the helpful associates, expect when they just don't have what I am looking for--which is rare.
The store is exceptionally clean, restrooms, too.
AND they are kid friendly!!! The Springfield, IL store has a huge overhead aquarium and a ferris wheel.
They also have home decor---beautiful stuff!!

OMG This is one of the neatest places I have been to. It is a sporting goods store, (Cabelas, Bass Pro), but each department has interactive play. My kids and Grands had a great time. They bowled, Hit golf balls, played a shooting game, There is even a Ferris Wheel in the store, that adults can ride on. Restaurant has good food. If you're going to Springfield or just passing thru, make sure to stop. Figure on spending a few hours.

Out of town guests always request a visit to this store. The indoor Ferris wheel is huge and costs one dollar. The huge salt water, tropical aquarium is fun. There is a diver that goes in and cleans it daily. The kids like the playground.There is a little bowling alley. There are shooting games, simulated race cars, simulated batting cages and golf cages. The robotic presidents are interesting. There's always a free sample of fudge at the cafe. Frankly, we never shop there. It's rather pricey. We do go there for an hour or so just to play.
