fREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
People. It's an experience where you get to throw things at other things, but they blow up. Work on your form, drink a beer, have a laugh, and don't take life too seriously.
It is so much fun to set off an explosion by hitting the target that you end up high-fiving the other teams hits too!
Great experience for a super fun game! Cheap drinks and lots of excitement with explosives
