^^^So Lucy (or is it Amy) from Dekalb
is defending the SMOKE. Are you an idiot?

Your own state has outlawed smoking in public spaces. Second hand smoke is dangerous hence the
anti-smoking laws.

Most Illinoians won't travel to Indiana to gamble in a smoke filled casino. It's disgusting to any sensible person who values their health.

Indiana needs to venture into the 21st Century.

they now have a non smoking section, but of course, you have to go through the smoking to get to the non smoking. i definetly limit my time due to the smoking, but what really gets me is the people on oxygen that smoke while the tube is still in their nose. don't these idiots, and casino workers, realize that these people could blow up the area where the tank is. houses have burnt down due this idiodicy.

I don't see how they will have enough business to stay open........the locals can't afford it and the majority of casino go'ers are in wheelchairs or should be. There are literally 10 poor people to each rich person in Orange County. I doubt if they will want to romp in a public facility no matter what safety measures are in place..........This is Indiana, people don't think about going to a water park in winter time. I suppose the workers will be paid at poverty level just like at the casino/resorts.
in fact, as a certified lifeguard i was paid minimum wage.-with no raise within 6 monthes, and no raises in the near future-end of story as jerry fuse, owner, has said. the place is a mess.. from employee meals, to breaks, and broken promises.(too many flaws to name) the place gets alot of business so far, and fuse, the owner, is not a very bright feller.-awful awful business man.

if this business doesnt last, it is because of Fuhs. i wish he would relocate... like out of the country.

Not sure where the few of you are getting your numbers but Cook/FLRC pays extremely well for a Casino/Resort and has an extremely competitive and lucrative benefits and 401 k plan.
Get your facts straight.
Can't wait to take my daughter to the new park!! This will become even more of a true Midwest destination than it already is.
hi..anon. maybe u should check ur facts urself.
i was a head lifeguard at this 'new' waterpark. Fuhs pays the CERTIFIED lifeguards min. wage. and as a head lifeguard with signifigantly more responsibility, i was also paid min. wage. i was with the company from the thought of openening until about a month ago. Fuhs is a very greedy businessman. That waterpark is a mess. Talk to ANYONE that puts up with the job. Lifeguards paid a fee of 56.00 for certification back in august of 08. we were ALL promised a reimbursment after being with the company for 60 days. not one guard has saw a dime of the 'promised payment'. our head aquatics supervisor recently leftthe waterpark. he has 11years of expirience in indoor aquatics, but still left. 3 of our supervisors are leaving august 1st. they have went from 75 lifeguards to 40 without firing one. employee meals consist of a very soggy hamburger and fries that are at least a day old! every employee gets $4.00 taken out of their check for each meal! that is $20.00 a 5 day work week!!! with no time at all to even go to the fast food just at the bottom of the hill during the very short break you LUCKILY recieve. i can go on and on.
but i cannot forget to mention the new hats for lifeguards that just came in.. the hats are mandatoury to wear -not a problem- BUT the quality of the hats is awful. guess how much FUHS took out of the lifeguards check for EACH hat? 14.50. yep. 15 bucks for a hat that cannot be provided by the Greedy employer, Jerry Fuhs. and ill let u know, a few of the guards and I looked up the exact model of hat online.. the price from several sites:6.00! and we paid fuhs more than double that for a hat. how much money do u think he made off approx.40 lifeguards that week? oh i dunno, estimated $240.00!!! That is more than a 2 week paycheck.
Fuhs is selfish and 'money hungry' without a doubt. get the facts.

OR maybe he is a molestor? and ordered not to be around children? and misses those amusement parks and swimming pools?

Not only is Jerry in need of a serious lesson in grammer, he also needs to get his facts straight. This park is for children, and based on Jerry comments, I'm tempted to call 100 friends with their screaming toodlers to meet me there! Let's face it Jerry, you were once a child!
