Is this experience right for me?

If you...

  • Play online games as an escape from your high-powered day-job​

  • Are open and enthusiastic about trying new experiences

  • Want to experience heroic action not just imagine it

  • Feel your hands itching to hold a sword every time you undergo online combat

  • Want a vacation as fun and active as the ones you took when you were a kid

Then you're ready to immerse yourself in five days of sword fighting, leather working, archery, and more in Historic Greer Station, South Carolina. 

Your guide Amy Bright sparring with Master Swordsman Aaron Shober at his sword school on his homestead.

AFternoon Explorations

Because an adult vacation shouldn’t be boring.

Getting out of the house doesn’t have to mean leaving your favorite things behind while you travel to the same-old-same-old with everyone else. And while you might have any number of amusement parks at your disposal (they’re not just for the kids, amiright?), when have any of them shown you how to sword fight like Aragorn or shoot arrows like Legolas or work leather like the best of Rohan?
