  • In this look, the inside is a game center. There is a machine like the arcade of the Japan, and children are playing. I thought it was a strange country that I really couldn't understand.

  • Went to two families with children. The abundance of similar slot machines quickly bored, everywhere the massage chairs is the only plus. No longer will go. Ferris wheel full of closed type. why he made that up. Shorter institution at one time, no more. When you in the wheel can be seen the corpses of birds on Windows, even workers include air conditioners to complete permafrost, or disable altogether and actually cough. As a torture chamber, very scary because the door does not open from the inside. Awful
