Expanding your activity offering

The Batting Experience
Batting Cages allow guest to test their baseball, cricket or tennis batting skills. The required sport is selected using the customer interface and an appropriate skill level is set. Located within the custom batting cage is powerful, patented experience technology. LED target screens identify points available for successfully striking the ball into a scoring zone, allowing for quality gaming graphics and an immersive experience. The ball feeder fires a ball towards the batter for them to return towards the target screen.
