    I would love to take my wife and kids to visit this attraction but no way in hell, not to Chicago the risk of losing one my loved ones, my daughter or wife to a rapist thug of yours just isn’t worth it. We have had 3 blacks walk right out in front of the car at a red light and start rubbing their p e n i s e s right in front of us. Chicago thugs will knock the windows out of your car at high noon and drag you right out of the car. I advise no one to go to Chicago in fact the government should issue an anti travel alert. As if avoiding the thugs from being carjacked isn’t enough Rahms red light cameras will give you a ticket if you try to get away, Don’t try to shoot any of the protected species to defend yourself either that’s a criminal offense.
