The place is cool. It really is. From the destroyed lighters, to the Rube Goldberg contraption to entertain the "kids"...it really is a well done place. My stay is kinda tempered by the fact that "their servers crashed and they couldn't sell anything".....I had cash, they had pen and paper. Doesn't seem like rocket science to me. Other than that,...
