Ep 94 – Dark Nights at CityWalk and a Roadtrip to Hogan’s Beach Shop

In this episode of #OTRonFM we have a news roundup with news from nearly every single corner of Central Florida. We’re extra energetic this week after SoFlo Energy Drinks drops off some drinks for us. We chug the caffeine and dive into the news. We talk with someone who was at CityWalk when the power went out. Jim calls in with a review of Paddlefish. Ken gives a trip report from Hogan’s Beach Shop in Clearwater. We discuss the name of Fun Spot Kissimmee’s new coaster. And we ask if SeaWorld is properly training their employees these days.
