Front desk not helpful and did not set the right expectations for a new customer. Took 1.5 before first race. Josh the manager was not apologetic. Poor services.

My son and I visited yesterday and had a great time. We bought the 3 race package and it took us a couple of hours to use. Fun activity for both of us. The price of the package is in line with similar activities.
