My husband and friend had a great time on the escavators. The instructor was great. We did the 90 min session and that was perfect. It’s a unique experience and they just kept saying over and over, wow that was fun!

What a great experience. My wife and I both enjoyed this immensely. More than just riding around on a bulldozer. The obstacle courses and the 'dexterity' challenges made this really fun. What a great way for a retired couple to do something new and exciting.
