OPEN LATE APRIL – OCTOBER WEATHER PERMITTING
A thrill for sports teams, families, community groups, youth and adults alike!
Are you a thrill seeker that wants to be chased? Do you love feeling the excitement of anticipation? Your heart pounding against your chest while in the midst of an adventure. Imagine that feeling as it rises exponentially while being tracked and chased down by our mantrackers and their horses on the trails following the river side while you try to find your way back home.
The activity typically does not take more then 2 hours. You will start in St.Jacobs (drop off 1000 Old Scout place) you will have to make your way back to the barn (535 Northfield Drive East) following the trails and collecting “lives”, while being tracked by 2 of our mantrackers on horseback all while trying not to be caught! Your group will be split into teams of approximately 5people depending on your group size. Along the trail you will find “lives”. The goal is to collect as many “lives” as you can without being caught. Every time you are caught you will have to surrender one of your “lives”. The team with the most “lives” at the end wins!
*Mantracker starting and drop off location is in St.Jacobs the end is at the farm in Waterloo. Your own transportation must be arranged*
– 10 people or less = $125.00 + HST in total.
