Now my third time there and the show is always fun and very friendly staff. Always something to amaze you and it is at the Freak bar which is always a great place to drink.

Had a local beer at the Freak Bar and watched the freak show. Big crush on the ring leader of the freaks, Ray Valenz. A great short stop!
