Racing past the multilevel arena's black-lit arches, barriers, and pathways, phaser-wielding players navigate their way through a foggy arena in pursuit of opponents. Such battles are the main draw of Lehigh Valley Laser Tag, where participants aged 7 and older compete for victory in three games during each 40-minute laser-tag session. After arrival, a short safety video screened in the staging room explains the game's equipment and confirms there's no need to wait 20 minutes between eating and playing before guests strap on their vests and ready their phasers. The arena hosts regular team-versus-team game play as well as special format rounds, all of which end with reports that compare each player's score to the results of friends and teammates. Afterward, groups reenergize by noshing on fare from the snack bar or playing abundant video games in the arcade.

Allentown Art Museum invites visitors to explore its collection of art from around the world, just as it's done for more than 80 years. Though the museum is primarily focused on American painting and sculpture, its collection also includes European Old Master works from the likes of Rembrandt as well as non-Western art, such as sculptures from India and Tibet.

Hard-rock juggernauts Five Finger Death Punch give audiences four for flinching on their Share The Welt tour, a high-octane evening of nail-driving metal and chugging aural concrete. Since bursting onto the scene in 2007 with its gold-selling debut, The Way of the Fist, Five Finger Death Punch has scaled the charts and the musical food chain, gulping its competition like a possessed Takeru Kobayashi. For the tour in support of its latest effort, American Capitalist, the gang enlists an entire posse of heavy hitters. Massachusetts metal mavens All That Remains, fresh from melting soles on the Vans Warped Tour, bludgeon audiences with an arsenal of hits, and hardcore shredders Hatebreed share unkind words as they haze the speed of sound. Adding power-chord crunch to the show, Fort Wayne’s Rains sprinkles audiences with raw and emotional sonic sleet.

Noemi Wilson-Debriano unfortunately couldn't fit her horses into the suitcase when she left to earn her degrees in animal sciences and psychology at Delaware Valley College. To make up for the lack of four-hoofed companions in her life, she traveled from door to door to find horse owners who needed help training and showing their steed, channeling the riding expertise she had honed since age 6. The same tenacity led her to purchase her own farm after graduation, where she and her staff now board and educate equines against the backdrop of breathtaking scenery. They recognize that horses have distinct personalities and modes of communication with their riders, helping both human and animal establish strong connections. During lessons, her staff leads beginners and advanced riders alike through tailored routines that outline horse behavior and physiology as well as cover saddle-striding form. They open their farm doors to patrons of all stripes, ranging from those who mean to trot for pleasure to those who aim to unfairly dominate the next season of The Amazing Race.

The farm cultivates a quiet environment of total acceptance and calm, welcoming all breeds to the barn. They customize their boarding services to suit each horse's temperament and training regimen. A team of vets, chiropractors, massage therapists, and nutritionists on the verge of engineering apple-flavored hay tend to hoofed tenants for the duration of their stay.

The Museum of Indian Culture provides a portal to the cultural history of the Lenape and other American Indian tribes. This history gains form and texture in the Northeast Woodland Room, where handmade basketry, beadwork, and pottery rest on display. Nearby, the Inter-Tribal Room demonstrates the breadth of cultures in the area. Its exhibits include a Lakota morning-star quilt, a Cheyenne sash, and Navajo sand art. For a more hands-on lesson, patrons can see how indigenous people made fire from a bow drill, practice using a dart thrower, or hear stories that were originally told by tribal elders.

In addition to its exhibits, the museum conducts regular educational events. During Saturdays at the Museum, guests can step into American Indian culture by practicing their hunting and gathering skills in the field, going on an insect safari, or learning about societies that existed before Columbus discovered the continent and named it after Amerigo Vespucci. The Museum also sponsors the Roasting Ears of Corn Festival—with flint knapping, tomahawk throwing, and artifact displays—and the Three Sisters Harvest, which donates food and other supplies to American Indian families in need.

Arcades typically just contain video games, but Rascal's Food & Fun doesn't house a typical arcade. Inside, guests can scale a 25-foot climbing tower or explore a two-story maze full of rope ladders, secret passageways, and cannons that launch thousands of foam balls.

More labyrinthine fun awaits in the laser-tag arena, where players dodge incoming fire while navigating a maze awash in Day-Glo decorations. Elsewhere, bumper cars collide, balls careen down miniature bowling lanes, and blips and bleeps pour out of more than 70 games, including Whack-a-Mole and the less popular follow-up version, Apologize-to-a-Mole.

The arcade is far from the 24,000-square-foot amusement center's only attraction. Rascal's two restaurants serve plenty of pub favorites, from housemade crab cakes doused in garlic-lime aioli to wings with 24 sauces, including Bangin' Bourbon. Adult beverages are available at three bars, where the day's biggest games unfold on 12 HDTVs and one 171-inch HD projector. These only skim the surface of Rascal's adult-oriented entertainment, which ranges from Texas hold 'em tournaments to live bands and DJs.
