On Saturday afternoon it is time to find out how well you know your sweetheart. Park staff will lead a fun and maybe educational (for the couples) game of the “Not-So-Newlywed Game.”

Saturday evening will begin with a delicious prime rib buffet dinner in the Driftwood Restaurant followed by a dance. DJ Cindy Cossey will spin the tunes and even teach a few dance moves. In addition, there will be couples-themed games during the dance.
