It's in the back section of the building, right now the area is about 20' x 20'. the plan is to keep it year round. We also have a big outside area that will be built up for crawling. There is no charge to test yet because it's not done. We should have it mostly done by May. We plan to have a suspension bridge that goes up 20' to the ceiling! We'll probably have 1 or 2 monthly events for prizes.

We added another 1000lbs. of rock and the suspended roadway to the ceiling is done! The roadway is 2' wide and about 40' long with 3 turns and a turnaround at the top about 15' in the air.

The crawler track will be open whenever the store is, we're thinking of having a regular competition every 3rd Sat. Start time would be 11:00am

The first event went good, we started at 11:00 and were done around 3:00
We need to have a regular monthly event to keep the interest up and grow the participation. We're thinking the 3rd Sat. of each month.
We have 6 or 7 different RTR Rock Crawlers in the store, still to early to tell what the most popular one is.
Will keep you posted!
