I'm sorry you did not have a good experience at the River Escape. i assure you that what you described is not the typical experience. i hope that you will reconsider your decision not to return. Although you checked in and stayed in our facility for over three hours, we have honored your first request of lowering your bill by 50% and then your second request of not charging you anything.
