But did you know that once upon a time it was a revolving aquarium & restaurant!?

Built in the '60s, the idea behind this GC restaurant was ahead of it's time.

Inside, fish tanks would surround the dining room while guests were treated to views of eels, octopus and various other sea life!

So why did it shut down? Some locals have said the restaurant was a victim of the '74 floods, others have recalled trespassers breaking in and smashing the tanks!

Maybe you know why it was closed? Did you ever get to visit? Let us know in the comments!
