Nice to not have kids around, but the adults were sometimes just as obnoxious. Wish we had a time limit on the pods to allow more people to use them.

Nobel Library

Didn't realize until last day that it was a lending library.

Mini Golf

Some of the illustrations for par purposes didn't quite match the holes.

Wish the entertainers would realize the immobile tables make many of their attempts to get us dancing impossible. The '80s revue was fantastic.
