This place is sick dude! You can have a lot of fun doing skateboard, paintball, jumping off from a high platform to fall down on a huge airpad, or hop on one of the go-karts, and I almost forget to mention the new pool they just built in their grounds, it is cool!

It’s pretty close to the beach so you can surf and skate every day. When I was there in April 2012 they were working on restaurant and a massive swimming pool, looked... More
