All New PIT OF DESPAIR!!, 7/18/2013

Let me start by saying that the attractions are fun, even for an older crowd (laser tag was a great addition). However, they should not have brought in alligators. Their barren cement pond was... disgusting and pathetic. They have no stimulation, they just sit there staring at the wall, day in and day out. Except when kids come to harass or feed them. Cruel, uneducated children throw things at them and try to hang them or pull them out of the pond with the "fishing rods" provided. Even if they use the feeding rods properly, they are made in such a way that the metal fasteners rip into the gators' mouths every time they latch on to eat. It's incredibly inhumane and sickening to think that this is how we educate our children- wild animals should not be used as a cruel source of entertainment. Get rid of the pit of despair and you'll go back to being a 5 star entertainment center.
