Yes one has. He hadn't received his keys as of his last post.

Haha, OK, so you misunderstood me then, I meant they should make the lake look natural--not make it natural. That is, they should've used darker paint on the lake floor. That's all, but no bother...it is what it is.

as for the lakes they blend in like natural waterways when you see them on the ground , again youve got to be there to comment on the real feel of the place, its vibey and cool.

its a world beating experience, try it and then come back with something please.
Again, another misunderstanding, I'm afraid. I don't mean they should keep the name and send people to the top, I mean they should find a different name--you aren't at the top, so why call it that? Makes no sense--it isn't even the tallest observation deck, as I recall reading on this forum...perhaps that was incorrect, though. Even if it was, the name still doesn't make sense, haha.

I'm sure the lakes look different when you're really there, but they look pretty terrible to me when you see photos from the sky or another building. Oh well!
