This didn't turn out as we expected. When we arrived the building was still locked up even though we were on time. But once an employee called Angel opened the door she informed us that our coach was running late, and gave us the option of waiting till he arrived, or just starting with her, which we chose. Angel was fantastic, she took us through half a dozen races, she was organised, funny and really lovely. We were all having a great time, really enjoying ourselves despite the bumpy start. Then two strange men were standing watching what we were doing, which started to make us all feel uncomfortable, then to make matters worse we were told that one of them was our coach. He came in to take over from Angel, but didn't have a clue what he was doing. The whole thing just went wrong from there, so we ended it early and left. The only saving grace of the whole thing was Angel, I'd give her 5 stars.
The coach that took this was called Angel and she was brilliant. Please pass this on if you can. Our scheduled coach never turned up and Angel had to be helped by members of the public who clearly had no training or I'm sure, insurance. It really spoiled what started as a fun activity. Angel was very apologetic and did all she could but this would have been easier cancelled than run like it was.
