I had to Wiki this poo poo. Sounds a lot like a place we used to have around here called Tumble Drum. I think it's called something else now.

It's two a.m., the fear has gone
I'm sittin' here waitin', the gun still warm
Maybe my connection is tired of takin' chances
Yeah there's a storm on the loose, sirens in my head
I'm wrapped up in silence, all circuits are dead
I cannot decode, my whole life spins into a frenzy

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know,
When the bullet hits the bone
Soon you will come to know, when the bullet hits the bone

I'm falling down a spiral, destination unknown
A double-crossed messenger, all alone
I can't get no connection, can't get through, where are you
Well the night weighs heavy on his guilty mind
This far from the borderline
And when the hit man comes
He knows drat well he has been cheated

Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
Help I'm steppin' into the twilight zone
The place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned
My beacon's been moved under moon and star
Where am I to go, now that I've gone too far
Soon you will come to know, when the bullet hits the bone

i remember they had a slide there with a bunch of rollers... i was really afraid i would get pinched and i held up the line because i kept hesitating to slide/climb down. One of the staff had to come get me down and they were like "a man your age should only be in here if he's accompanying his child/ren sir"

Is "Discovery Zone" a new euphamism for adult bookstore/arcade/glory hole?

If so this thread makes so much more sense.

you mean it was an awesome, rewarding physical experience without the lame-rear end animatronic "band" that no kid no matter how young cared about. no one ever made tube playlands as huge or awesome as they did, and none of their competitors had an infinite rock climb conveyor belt.
