Full review

Overall, this place could have been above average for the greater Minneapolis area. However, the absence of some type of very simple grease guard at each tower, made it a pain in the rear. Each time we went under a tower 9riding the lift), grease would drip on us. If you looked down, you could see a large black area surrounding hte base of each tower. My wife and my coats needed to go straight to the cleaners when we got home. Add that to the cost of the tickets, and it become a poor value and downright inconvenience. When I asked a staff member why they didn't simply install a small guard at the towers to catch or divert the grease, she said that the problem usually isn't that bad. That's not good enough for me to risk going there again.
