Had a great time with the grandkids - Its a long course 3 hrs so be sure to eat before coming. They provide water stations before heading up the ladders which we took advantage of because it was a hot humid day.

This is a physical activity...you climb up ladders, have to hook yourself into safety lines, etc. Not sure that a broken wrist would work so well with this physical activity...
