"This was a blast from start to finish. Eric was extremely upbeat and provided an atmosphere of fun and good-natured bantering. We had no idea what to expect….it was much fun and would recommend it to groups of any size. We had approx. 25 people, cut into teams, and are still displaying our trophies and blue ribbons. Do it – you won’t regret it."
