All of these skills will then be put to use on the final day as participants are placed into Tiger teams and assigned multiple tasks in seemingly real world environments. 

All courses are taught by experts within their field. Including former RECON, Navy, and those who have won international lock picking competitions.

The Prison..... Yes its a real prison that was in active use until 2002. It has a processing area, Maximum security, General population, Yard, warden's office, Medical, Solitary and even a court house. It will be a wild immersive long weekend.
