You clutch your bow with the arrow to your chest, slinking along the cavern walls toward the dark opening in the distance. You think you hear a scuffle to your left, but aren't sure if the sound came from your own feet. You press on, about to make a run for it, until someone emerges from behind a pile of wooden palates up ahead. You take aim and fire—but instead of piercing them, the arrow just bounces off their body; it has a soft foam tip.

That's because this isn't a real battle, it's archery tag, one of the many games featured at Extreme Underground. Located beneath the Earth's surface in a former U.S. Army bunker, the gaming arena also pits competitors in matches of indoor/outdoor laser tag and game-room classics such as foosball and billiards. There's a black-lit miniature golf course, as well as speleobox, a wooden maze that simulates crawling through low caves. Eighty linear feet of climbing walls fit in perfectly with the bunker's cavernous architecture, and more modern games such as Makoto Arena challenge participants to touch their hands and feet to the LED lights intermittently emitted from a six-foot tower. Gamers are welcome to drop in, or reserve the arena for birthday parties, overnight excursions, or to prepare for the inevitable robot coup.

Fort Leavenworth FMWR, an organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of soldiers and their families, welcomes military members and civilians alike to swing their way through the Trails West Golf Course. According to Trails West, when President Eisenhower was attending nearby Command & General Staff College, he used to drop by the 18-hole, par 71 course, where he developed his lifelong passion for caddying for Mamie. For more than 90 years, the 190-acre facility has inspired many other players to waltz across the fairways of zoysia grass and onto the bent-grass putting greens. Holes 2, 3, 10, and 13 present challenging par 5s, and hole 6 claims the title of signature hole by virtue of an elevated tee from which players must send their dimpled orbs flying over a creek and onto an elevated green with subtle breaks and a shape-shifting hole.

Trails West Golf Course invites golfers to warm up at its lighted, covered driving range and two putting greens. Players can purchase gloves, clubs, and trees that grow golf balls at the pro shop or hone their game with instruction from PGA professionals. After a morning on the greens, players can drop by the Fairway Grille to munch a chicken-club sandwich or old-fashioned cheeseburger out on the patio.

Course at a Glance

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,188 from the farthest set of tees
  • Course rating of 69.9
  • Slope rating of 120
  • Four sets of tee boxes

The stresses of the city seem light years away for guests who retreat to Screamin' Oaks Farm, a working farm with goats, pigs, peacocks, chickens, cows, geese, quail, donkeys, and hound dogs. Visitors meet the farm's fleet of white and black goats, whose milk is sold onsite and also made into creamy chèvre goat cheese and homemade ice cream. Farmhands foster introductions to creatures large and small, letting guests milk the goats themselves and pet the furry mane of a young donkey. Turtles idle along in their own dedicated habitat as peacocks stalk the grounds, opening and expanding their turquoise plumage when a mate is nearby or when they want to take up two seats on tractor rides.

Yappy Hour Pet Resort's 11,000-square-foot facility provides a home away from home for pups of all shapes and sizes. The climate-controlled indoor play area is scattered with pet-friendly mats and dishes of cool water but is still large enough for rambunctious canines to romp and play ironic games of Red Rover. During overnight stays, individual kennels can be decorated with your four-legged friend’s favorite bedding or toys, or energetic dogs can relax in an extended 10'x30' room, which features plenty of rolling-over room. Boarded dogs get all-day access to the play area and a complimentary bedtime treat made in Yappy Hour Pet Resort's onsite doggy bakery.

Learn how to immortalize your creativity in a less transient form with today's Groupon. For $45, you'll get $150 worth of summertime art instruction at Kansas City Art Institute. The Groupon is good for either the storied, tree-lined main campus or KCAI's Northland Campus for Special Programs in Riverside.

Named Best Place for a Kid’s Birthday Party by the Pitch, and recently moved into a new and larger location in Tiffany Springs, Bounce House Moonwalks turns kids loose upon giant inflatables, interactive video games, a toddler area with a tiny roller coaster, and concessions. Parents can spend time using the free WiFi or hop around with their kids in the 24-foot-diameter spaceship that boasts air-filled aliens and a cockpit where kids can pretend they’re in space outrunning other inflatables. After zipping around the imagined universe, sock-clad tots clamber over, under, and through the plush tubes and barriers of the 72-foot obstacle course before cascading down its slide. Over at the Xbox 360 Kinect system, kids play interactive video games in which they use their bodies as controllers. Bounce House Moonwalks also allows families to leave the facility at any point and return within the same day for no additional charge.
