    Must have been awesome in the 60s, but no no wonder no one goes anymore. #11

    • newscot

      Yeah, I can see why this idea would have "tanked".

    • mark

      Actually yes. That is a reunion shot of some of the old mermaids from back in the day

  • Tuff Guy

    Well this just looks like a giant waste of time.

  • Chris

    This is a slowly dying park, I live right down the road. When Paris and Nicki showed up the shark was jumped. Still a ridiculously awesome place to Scuba Dive, and watch some of florida's finest gaps and humps on hot summer days.

    • Kyle

      I am with you. The place seems to have gone down a little though since the state took over. Talk about nostalgia, it used to be 15 bucks for a splash pass. Not its like 50.

    • Juddster

      I live about 10 minutes away. Nice Kayak run too down to Roger's.

    • John

      I didn't get it, until I went back and looked at the picture again, then I laughed out loud! 😀 Good one!

  • Maytrix

    I just took my dog out, came back in, opened up chive and found this. Did I step into a wormhole and enter some bizaro universe or did the Chive really post this??

    • JAFitC

      Those options are not mutually exclusive.

  • Inviolability

    This actually seems really cool. I would have gone and seen it.
