This place is so run down, they should be sued for false advertising! Neon lights? Maybe 20 years ago! I was humiliated and embarrassed after taking business friends, thinking it was going to be cool! NOT!!!!

Man, they spent all that money putting lights on that bridge and it's not worth any one driving here to see it. Meaning don't make a special trip because you will be wasting your time. I drive over this bridge going to the down town...More
