Poly ? Is the water fall fixed?

The last time we were at Poly for dinner the waterfall in the middle of the lobby was not functioning. All you could see were hoses and pretty much a mess. There were no flowers or birds or water like I remember there being. Has this since been fixed?

I was just there- all looked normal to me - tons of plants, flowers, waterfall, everything. You probably just hit a bad time when it was down for an overhaul or something.

I was there once when it was down and they told me they have to empty it every now and then to get all the change out that people throw in. It clogs up the drains. They use a giant vacuum to suck out all the money, what a racket!

You know the money goes to various charities though? So its not so much a racket. My daughter is a CM and she told me how much once and its a HUGE amount.
