  • Kids love this kind of thing, we really enjoyed it. BUT i would not go out of my way to come here if you have to travel. its cool.. but not that cool :)
  • Once you figure it out it is actually cool. At first I thought it was stupid. You car is in neutral and you are going backwards up the hill behind you 😂.
