It doesn't have that many attractions, but it's worth taking your kids so you can have a wonderful time! The carousel is awesome.

If you "DO NOT" like Fun then this is not the place for you. Wall to wall video games that range in age from toddler to most with it cool teenager all the way up to Grandpa.

The bowling alley only had a few lanes that worked and the computer scoring machine did not work. The arcades were fun. The... More
