It wasn't far from River, since there used to be a path that went North from confideracy and came out right next to it. It was a very relaxing place to eat on a slow evening when working River. The food wasn't bad either.
There was a place we used to go to get ham and cheese sandwiches from Flume I. I don't remember where it was. It was pretty good and pretty quiet also. It may have been the Sandwich Emporium across from the Texas Courthouse.
Some of it's still there. The patio, the pond. It's Panda Express's back covered patio. It looks out over the 8 feet by 10 feet of water that used to be Skull Island/Spinnaker/River. Part of a back area trek we used to take to get from Rapids to ESO when we had to go through ESO.
