My son especially liked the hammerhead shark that was suspended over the door leading to the bathrooms and patio. The pictures look like yard sale leftovers with the goal of covering the wall. The booths are in bad need of replacement as many are ripped and lumpy. There are mood setting string lights but I’ve never actually seen them on.
