  1. For adults this is fun a great way to unwind at the end of the day. We had 2-3 cocktails each and then snacks and dessert. Then could have a lite dinner when got back to hotel. We felt it was a great value. Definetly fun if you have transportation back to your hotel.

  2. The dessert parties really are out of control. It’s just more money grabbing and it strikes me on such a sour note.

  3. I just tried to book this for Aug 6th on both the website and calling and it doesn’t start until the 11th. 🙁

    DEBK REPLIES: Angi, I just tried to book online, and there was availability for Aug. 6. Maybe it was just a temporary glitch – please try again!
