The photos below show the area where the original Casino building once stood. After a tragic fire in August 1964, the lot was cleared and amusements were put in place. This area changed quite frequently throughout the late 1960's and 70's with a variety of rides and attractions including the Showboat Funhouse ... the Whirlpool... Laligo Whip and the Dune Buggys.
