This is a super fun place. Loud music, dancing, games, bubbles....lots to do to entertain yourself. The food is below average. But is a truly a place to hangout with friends and family. The kids don't care about the food anyway.

This extremely large establishment is great for meals with views of the Gulf, drinks, entertainment, friendly staff, and gift shop. Take some pictures in the out door area or check out their entertainment line-up.

This is a large place with a lot to do. I would have no problems taking a large group there. You might want to call ahead and schedule your time. This place has a great view and is busy.
