My sister and I came today for quad biking and paintball. The quad biking was so much fun. The guide was helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. The paintball was fun for the most part. It just hurt a lot. Thanks for a good day 😊

Absolutely horrific. My group of 11 got the "white water rafting" for pretty much half price, and still felt robbed. Absolute rip off. You sit awkwardly in a raft for an hour going downstream at walking speed, before transferring to a speed boat and returning...More
