The Tiki Palace party mansion was built in Chattanooga, Tennessee in 1972 by strip-club tycoon Bully Hull. A Playboy bunny shaped swimming pool just off the main entrance is the focus of the 5,600 sq foot 3-bedroom mansion.

The Tiki Palace mansion fell into disrepair when its owner was nicked for income tax evasion. He was later convicted of hiring an assassin to kill his wife's lover, a crime which landed him a 20-year prison sentence.

Recently the mansion has been ravaged by vandals who have smashed its interior which had remained almost intact since Tiki Palace would host parties in the 70's and 80's.

Anybody who wants a closer look at those tiki heads can visit the ruins at 25 N. Crest Rd., Chattanooga, TN

3 bedrooms really doesn't scream mansion to me.

Even a proper summer cottage has 70 rooms.

I did a quick search and it looks like it was demolished last month. :(

"There are rumors several families moved in and out of the Swinger’s Palace over the years. Recently, vandals broke in the home destroying everything in sight. The home fell into foreclosure becoming seized by the city for back taxes. The Swinger’s Tiki Palace has been condemned for years and was finally demolished on September 7, 2017."

Never underestimate this organizations ability for Tomfoolery. That is why we have a Test Lab. :wink:

It looked like it was great in its heyday. Just because it lists three bedrooms, doesn't mean their wasn't any hidden rooms, for real Tomfoolery.
