Had a blast here after our time on the river! We came for karaoke night, and met a friendly crowd of people who made us feel very welcomed. The bonfire was also nice touch after a long day!

Thank you for your review Stephen! The theme parties are a blast and disco is probably one of our favorites! We are trying out a new theme this year with a zombie party. That one should be interesting!! We hope to see you again soon!
