Took my in-laws there for their 58th wedding anniversary gift. We had s great time. TJ and Max were great guides and everybody was real friendly. We did the new course with the kayaks. Ready to go back and do the rock wall course.

My husband and I, as well as, a group of friends went to American Obstacle and had a blast! We did team building, climbing the rock wall, and zipling! The staff was great and funny and very informative.
