We had a lot of fun with this amazing car. Twenty minutes of crazy race going up and down! The car can also run into the river.

Went here on a work team building day. Was my third visit and W's lucky enough to have tried something different on each visit. The hog roast was delicious. Well worth a day or two of your time.
