    Swim Bar

    Was just curious since ill be out there today but does anyone else go to the Adventure Bay swim bar at Adventureland? Ive had a pass the last 2 years and this year just because of that. Its great especially for the younger crowd or even if you are with your family and want to have a mixed drink by sitting in the pool.

    Re: Swim Bar

    Just went Saturday & had a pretty good time. Bartenders were all pretty fun.

    I guess I didn't really think about other people noticing that I didn't leave the water for a 1 & 1/2 - 2 hour stretch...

    Oh well. Everybody's doing it, right??

    Re: Swim Bar

    Are their drinks reasonably priced? It seems like the cost to get in is a little high. Also, I know that Taco John's use to have coupons, is there anywhere that has coupons for a days pass? Thinking about going in August.

    Prices actually went up this year for parking and for a day pass. I got a season pass since im in DM. Word to the wise if you plan on going plan on seeing 40 dollar passes with 10 bucks per person without buying ANYTHING in the park.

    Let me get this straight. You have to pay a minimum of $50 to jump in a pool of urine?
