    ... of interactive things to play with. The ropes course ended up being the highlight of our visit as none of us had done one before. It was scary and challenging and really fun. I was surprised at how long we stayed up on the ropes - no wonder the line was endless! Even though we paid nearly full price, I still felt it was good value for all we got from it.

    I figured that since pancakes seems to be ...

    After a couple of hours, we split up - Will an I took all 4 kids to the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest for a hike while Phan and Thao took the motorcycle to conquer the Tail of the Dragon, the legendary motorcycle route featuring over 318 bends in 11 miles. They had a blast, spending almost 2 hours flying around on the sports bike! ...

    ... We ended up paying for Will and myself and the kids helped. So we had 4 buckets between us. Had to dig our own dirt from a little "tunnel". Apparently, this was all native dirt, meaning no gems had been planted here to allow for instant gratification.

    Took us about an hour to go through a bucket each, which was plenty of time for me. Only Matt wanted to do more - the rest of us were pretty tired - ...
