    I was there the year it opened. In fact the week we were there was the official opening.
    There was a big party where the 3 Warner Brothers landed in a helicopter on the playing field next to the outdoor swimming pool.
    The private party was in the downstairs "disco bar". I don't know how, but myself and a friend sneaked in and hid under some tables and helped ourselves to some of the buffet.
    Talking of the disco bar, the actual room was open all day and there was a juke box.
    I still remember some of the records on the juke box.
    Do you want to know a secret - Bill J. Kramer and the Dakotas
    From me to you - The Beatles
    I Like it - Gerry and the Pacemakers
    Deck of Cards - Wink Martindale
    Plus a song by Brian Hyland.
    So most likely 1963.
    The Juke Box developed a stickey refund lever. So my friend and I used to push it down and block up the refund chute. Didn't make much money but we got a few free records.
