Yes, due to the snow in the winter we are limited to follow the leader kind of rides... come out and see us in the summer time and you can ride side by side. So glad it was enjoyable for you!

Our family of 5 adults enjoyed our day with Joe. He was very patient with our numerous times of getting stuck and made sure everyone was safe when issues arose. The Tubing was awesome and the lunch was fantastic.
