The Activity

You have one job. Step into that cage and smash that ball as hard as you can!

The ball is thrown towards you from our pitching machine and you simply have to hit the ball as best you can! Our system does the rest…

Suitable for ages 10+

No Protective Equipment Required

Easy to learn and enjoy!

The Technology & Game 

The same technology used by professional MLB players (although we don’t take it as seriously)!

The super-smart technology tracks the trajectory of the ball after it leaves the bat. It measures velocity, launch angle and a whole host of other metrics.

Your hit is then shown on the big-screens so you can see where the ball would have gone in a real baseball stadium.

Depending on what game is being played you can either score points or play a real game where you can be caught out by the fielders!
