This an activity you don't see everywhere. It's fun, easy but definitely a workout. You can go solo or you can do tandem. The owner was friendly and very accommodating to our needs and it's reasonable. It's worth a try at least once.

Not that I’m aware of for health restrictions or weight restrictions. Always best to check with those that work there before going. But it is fun
