HFitTS does not accept financial compensation for reviews, so that all opinions are honest and unbiased.  Some destinations do extend invitations and offer complementary admittance, some know we are there for a review, and others have no idea until they get a link to the blog.

While HFitTS does give the positive and negative opinions of places and activities we have enjoyed in a review, HFitTS will not post a derogatory review on a location.  Life is too short to spend 4-5 hours reliving a bad experience, and we have had plenty of them.  Posting would be completely contrary to our name.  We just don’t write, talk or even think about those places.  Ewww.

HFitTS tries to give the most up to date information on hours, prices, etc.  but readers should ALWAYS check with the location before going.

There are no guarantees by HFitTS, either written or implied, of you having a good time at any of the locations we review.  Some people just won’t have a good time anywhere.
