"Shane, Pablo and Russel were amazing, patient and encouraging! "
"Trapeze with 'I Fly Li' was amazing! The instructors were so friendly and encouraging! I would definitely do this again. We had a great time!"
"We had the trapeze lessons for two last Saturday and had a blast! The staff gave great instruction and feedback to help us improve our experience. Best of all, the staff was enthusiastic and fun. My only critique concerns the information provided about the location. A street address was provided, but it would have been helpful to know that the venue was located in Eisenhower Park near the aquatic center. Also, you should tell customers that they will need to pay a park fee if they are not residents of Nassau County. Luckily we had some cash with us!"
