A co-worker of mine went a few years back.

She said it was lots of fun, but a little painful. Some of those tomatos can get tossed pretty hard.

I have been there before CD, and yes its off the hook. One of the greatest times I had. First you have a shirt fight, while the tomatos get there, and then the Tomatina begins. Its something cool to experience.
