Estee Pouleris, NYMetro Parents: “BuggyPolaris was my favorite activity of the day, but we also had great fun at theday’s other activities, including a safari ride to a classic farm where we eachmilked a cow, horseback riding through the countryside, and a chairlift rideabove the trees. We also rode a zip line through the forest; it had fivelanding platforms, and at the final one we took a bungee down 20 feet to theground. Our daughter participated in everything and loved every minute of it.Due to her size, she was accompanied by an experienced staff member whilehorseback riding, on the chairlift, and for tandem zip lining. Included in thisexperience is a delicious buffet of authentic Dominican food that we enjoyed whilelistening to live music”.

Lived in a stream of happiness.”
