Spigot, Inc. Visits Eightpoint and goes to Oasis Aqua Park!

Last week a few team members from our Spigot, Inc. office visited our sister company in the Cayman Islands! The team got together and left the monitors behind for an amazing, one of a kind, team fun day at Oasis Aqua Park.

Oasis Aqua Park is the latest island attraction. However, this is no regular water park. It is an inflatable obstacle course park located in Hog Sty Bay in Grand Cayman, or better known as “Waterfront”.

Of course competition in the office is huge and this time we took the competition outside with everyone running, sliding and challenging each other to see who could finish the course first without falling into the water. For many of us, it will be an unforgettable experience with our Eightpoint  and Spigot family. 

Not only did Spigot and Eightpoint have a great time at the waterpark, they also had an awesome time in the office welcoming new employees and learning about different products!
