The trainers at Robert Brown Sports Performance don't just blindly assign clients exercises to perform. Instead, they use tests to determine your strength and conditioning levels at the outset of your training. This allows them both to tailor their workouts to your needs and to motivate you to make drastic improvements. In addition to reaching higher performance levels, training can also help athletes limit the likelihood of injuries on the court or field.

TCU football kicks off its 2010 season with its opener against Oregon State. In a recent USA Today coaches' preseason poll, the Horned Frogs were ranked no. 7 and the Beavers were ranked no. 22, making this matchup a cleated clash between two gridiron gangs with much to prove to the college football world. Both squads have something to prove to themselves, too—TCU's 2009 season ended with a Fiesta Bowl loss to Boise State, while Oregon State lost to Brigham Young University in the 2009 Maaco Bowl Las Vegas. In between the rushing, tackling, throwing, and kicking, keep an eye peeled for potential fisticuffs between mascots Super Frog and Benny Beaver, as each represents not only their respective university but also different water-frequenting members of the animal kingdom.

In the minds of politicians and geography teachers, Austin is the indisputable capital of Texas. But Arlington can at least claim to be the state's capital of adrenaline-inducing thrills. That's all thanks to Six Flags Over Texas and its collection of wooden and steel roller coasters. The tallest, Titan, sends riders racing down a 255-foot drop until they reach a top speed of 85 miles per hour?and that's only the beginning.

Beneath Titan's towering peak stretches a park that's home to more than 100 rides, live shows, and other attractions. Befitting the park's international theme, different areas pay homage to foreign countries such as France and Mexico. Texas has plenty of representation as well, namely the New Texas Giant. An updated version of the park's classic Texas Giant, this coaster features trains modeled after vintage Cadillacs.

Other sections of the park are ripped straight from the pages of a comic book. At Gotham City, Batman? The Ride turns the Caped Crusader into an inverted roller coaster; the ride will be even more thrilling when it's turned backwards this summer. Elsewhere, the Looney Tunes gang takes over Bugs Bunny Boomtown and its 10 kid-friendly attractions. Hang around for a while, and you might even get to shake hands with Bugs Bunny himself.


Here are a couple of tips to help you navigate the park:

  • Consider purchasing a THE FLASH PASS, which lets you reserve a spot in line without actually having to wait in line.
  • Catch a concert, Wild West cabaret show, or another form of live entertainment.
  • Grab a bite at one of the park's many restaurants, which serve everything from burgers to Asian cuisine.

?It all starts with an idea and block of wood,? John Hopkins, founder of Le Theatre de Marionette, marvels on his website. While that may be true for his meticulously hand-carved marionettes?which star in the full gamut of classic children?s stories from Hansel and Gretel to The Wizard of Oz?it took a little more for Le Theatre itself. John began his performances in a defunct bus station in Arlington, drawing in families with just the skill of his hands and voice, before achieving enough success to move to Dallas and expand his skilled team of puppeteers and voice actors.

Boneyard Haunted House has been featured in numerous local media outlets, including in a story on CBS 11 news exploring whether or not the space is actually haunted. Rumors swirl that the large, formerly abandoned building that operator Dan Hall has converted into a haunted house harbors some very real ghosts. To give his guests a proper Halloween fright, Hall has outfitted the building's downstairs area with more than 40,000 square feet of realistic-looking skeleton scenes, elaborate designs, and passageways that reduce one’s line of sight to up the surprise factor. But, as Hall told CBS 11, other unintentional things have been happening inside the haunted house. Rolls of receipts have rolled across the floor and trash cans have accelerated across the room, all seemingly of their own volition. The phenomena have even caused paranormal investigators to come in with recording technology to try to contact the spirits of any lingering souls or prolific Ouija boards that might be stuck on the premises.

For guests who have walked through the haunted house in previous years, every season brings new and scary surprises. A writer from the North Dallas Gazette reported on the effort, noting that "each year, the haunt is completely taken down and the team starts fresh building exclusive rooms and new props." The attraction also boasts an indoor festival area with games, music, concessions, and vendors.
