    The bar is outstanding and if you go to the sideshow performance you can bring your booze in. How "freak"ing cool is that?

    Don't be a chump & order a Bud. Try one of the 5 "Coney Island" beers instead! Delicious and unique.

    The name conveniently applies to both the show and the audience, which is to say, I love it.

    Whatever cider it is they sell is ridiculously sweet so if you like your ciders bitter(like me) I'd avoid it.

    Seriously, the $10 you spend on an "Albino Python" is totally worth it.
