    I cannot believe this place is still open running business as usual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! From our experience Memorial Day 2013 through to August of 2014 this place has gone from a ranking of a III, 3, Three..........to the current ranking of I, 1, One..............in the space of one year. I am seriously surprised this place isn't a parking lot already. How many other visitors of this property feel this way????????????
