I have been a member of the Monon Center since its opening. I love going to the pool, except for one thing: the lazy river! It really is not a “lazy” river. First off, in order to get a tube, you have to wait your turn, right? Wrong! You will wait till the cows come home because most people don’t care that you have been waiting for a tube. They just run out into the flow of riders and take the next available tube. I was totally humiliated by 3 teenage boys who disregarded the need to wait their turn. I kindly told them there was a line, and they looked at me like I was crazy. Instead of waiting, they went out and grabbed tubes that did not belong to them. When I said they belonged to the couple in front of me, the boys just laughed and went on their way.
Both adults and kids disregard those who are waiting patiently. How hard would it be to install a rope or something so that everyone knows where to enter and exit? It would create an obvious line with visual marks. Usually when I go to the Lazy River, I end up leaving because I have been laughed at, told to mind my own business, or various other rude remarks. Frankly, there really isn’t any place at the center for adults to enjoy. In the future, I hope they will consider everyone frequenting the center. Until then, I think I may have to find another pool where I can relax.
