Shannon - East Bethel


..staff on the field trip LOVED it. The set up, the directions they received, and what your staff did during the trip made it go very smoothly.
Our parents gave good reviews too and I had to turn away last minute people because our busses were full! Thanks for a great trip!
Rachel - Kids Club Coordinator


"Our hockey team had a really awesome time there. It is something we will want to do again (and again)!! Reserving the upper loft for us was perfect. The parents that chose not to tube really enjoyed being able to see all the action from the comfort of the indoors!! I will definitely recommend Eko Backen to other teams looking for fun way to celebrate!!"

"Our yearly Panther Mentor Eko Backen tubing adventure! It's our favorite event of the season - and the kids have been asking non-stop if we'll be able to go!"

Yes! The kids had a great time. It was our first time there, and the layout of the hills was great. We will definitely be back.. Thanks for the great and easy day!! I would recommend having a kid's party there to anyone.

Thank you for the great evening. The kids had a blast . Many of the students had not been there before and were not sure what to expect. I can say it surpassed all there expectations. And thank you for being so easy to work with. It was hard to nail down a number for an event like this, and I appreciate your flexibility. Hope the rest of your season goes well.

I wanted to send you a quick message to send a HUGE thank you for hosting an event for MVFS CHOMP group. The kids and parents had SO much fun! I received many rave reviews as people left and emails shortly after they got home!

I wanted to share a few with you:

Just a quick note to say THANK YOU once again to you and your people who organized todays event. We also want to give a huge thank you to John for his awesome property! Not sure if he will see this or not but we sure would love it if you could pass it on. We had an amazing time today. I only wish my hubby could have been there to see the girls big smiles. Maybe you will do the event again next summer so he can attend?! Tons of fun! Thanks also for a great lunch and John with his yummy baked beans.

I just wanted to let you know that Alexander, Nicole and I had a fantastic time. It can be very hard to entertain kids ages 9 & 11 on a limited budget and usually going to the water park is not a part of that budget. This was really a great day of family fun for us. At age 11 it is hard to get Alexander to try things and I usually get the reply of "that sounds boring"..... He reluctantly agreed to try it......then he was hooked and we were racing back up to the top each time. My legs and butt can really feel that today.....and I usually work out most days of the week.

Thanks so much for putting this on and I think it would be great to forward this to the owner of Eko Backen. What a nice gesture of him to let all of our families spend some quality time together in a great environment. We had a great time and lots of laughs.

So, again - a HUGE 'THANK YOU' to you!

We had our family tubing at Eko Backen last year during Christmas break.Everyone loved it so much they want to come back!

Too awesome!!! Thank you very much. I will tell you that we had LOTS of conversations with people telling them how much fun we had at your place. Everyone agreed it sounded like such a fun family thing to do.

Looking forward to our outing at Ecko Backen. Everyone had such a great time. Big kids and little kids both. We will pray for nice winter weather. It was next to perfect last year.

Im a teacher at the Osseo Secondary. We have brought a group of students out to Eko Backen snow-tubing the past few years and have LOVED it every year! Were hoping to bring a group this year too!
Thank you,

John and Staff at Eko Backen
We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at your facility on February 10th! Your staff was very friendly and accommodating. Not sure if this is a family run business, but it has the feel of it which we enjoyed also. We had a bit of a misunderstanding regarding the cost and failed to leave the tip we intended. Sorry about the delay. We hope to use your facility again in the future. Thanks Again!
Wendy on behalf of our work group, Mpls Police Fire Emergency Communication.
