Greg claims unemotional people don't give reviews, but here's mine anyway! There are cookie-cutter activities done like amusement park rides where you're just another dollar in their pocket, and then there are intimate, learning experiences with families like the Hartley's. They try to get to...More

Thanks Paul for not only the 5 star review, but also for painting a larger picture. Fear and fun seem to be somehow linked. The weather must have added to the positive emotional experience. We should charge more when it is more exciting, and link...More
