We came here one Saturday with a large group of kids numbering 20. The staff were laid back and helpful and good with advice without rushing anyone, and patient with the many many questions put forward by the kids.

There are 12 different sports to take part in including cricket bowling, gaelic over the bar shots, rugby kicking, golf pitching and putting and baseball so were talking about a mix of American, English and great to see the irish sports in here too with a tap of hurling also involved.

You get a card which each player scans before he enters the cauldron of pressure. There are 2 hours on the card between the 4 of you to use but if goes over staff are friendly enough to let you finish out. You also get a marking card and colleagues mark your card as you hit or kick inside

It was a rainy day in Galway and myself and the boss decided to do something. Jump lanes had just opened so we decided to check it out. When we got there they were nothing but children there so we felt maybe it was just for kids so the wife said "let's try pure skill". God I wish I never listened to her. On arrival, which was pretty cold, we asked the guy how much it was. Lazily he explained the procedure and that it was 20 EUROS! I nearly dropped! I turned to herself and she said " cmon let's try it". So its a kinda circuit of multiple sports and you have to try and get as high a score as possible. I've never been so bored in my life. Each game was stupid, uninspiring and unless you were with a pack of drunken eejits all with small man syndrome this place is awful! It is really for the blindly competitive people. I've never felt so unwelcome in a place and with a 20 euro price this place is not worth it! I 100% would not recommended this place. Seems like it needs an upheaval of staff and maybe some refurbishments! Go the cinema instead!
