Within Game Shack’s digital den, flat-screen TVs line the walls, flickering with the polygonal derring-do of gamers locked in virtual competition with titles for platforms including Xbox, Wii, and PC. While their plush leather video-game chairs make extended sessions as comfortable as they are engaging, Game Shack also brings games to life in their multi-floor, tiered laser-tag arena. Illuminated by black lights, players take aim at opponents against a tropical-themed backdrop depicting a moonlit waterfall, a spooky temple, and tiki men impersonating their favorite Bond villains. The party room hosts large groups for celebrations such as birthdays and special events, with party packages available that arm each member with unlimited laser tag and console gaming. Game Shack also hosts competitive-gaming events, with an official Elo-based ranking system that assigns seeding for tournaments. As players dash and game to their hearts’ delight, the Snack Shack keeps them properly fueled with food such as pizza, hot dogs, chicken wings, Monster energy drinks, and sodas.

Laura Monahan comes from an artistic family, and spent her youth practicing sculpture, oil painting, pottery, and what turned out to be her ultimate passion: photography. Her ability to preserve candid moments has left an indelible impression—she has a published portfolio on three continents and product lines appearing at national retailers such as Hallmark and JCPenney. Laura’s photo shoots always take place outdoors, capturing newborns, older kids, and families in soft, natural lighting and poses that never appear unnatural. Her settings span the country from San Diego’s foamy beaches to Denver’s red-rock sunsets and into the Midwest’s autumn leaves, and she holds mom's night out events all over the country, including in Honolulu, San Diego, Minneapolis, Chicago, and Denver.

A rainbow of paint showers Dynamic Paintball's 8 acres, where players weave between bunkers. Year round, these simulated battlefields host games of intense Capture the Flag, during which participants must dodge acrylic salvos, hide behind wooden structures, and race across grassy fields. To keep things fun yet safe, Dynamic Paintball's staffers supervise all games and matches up players based on skill level. They also set up paintball battles for bachelor parties and birthdays.

Away from the technicolor warzone, a shaded staging area lets groups strategize and grab bites to eat. Players can also head over to Dynamic Paintball's proshop, where staffers repair damaged gear and recommend new paintball guns from the likes of Tippmann.

Even the most avid golfer understands that the game can have its drawbacks: travel, expense, and slow play are often found at the top of this list of grievances. Though they can't recreate many of the characteristics—fresh air, natural surroundings, easily impressed caddies—of an actual golf course, the 20 golf simulators at American Professional Golf Links seek to alleviate some of the common hassles of a real round of golf.

Each simulator allows users to play world-famous courses they might not otherwise play, including Doral, Congressional, and Royal Troon—27 courses in total. Golfers simply pick out the course they'd like to play on the computer's user interface, and then watch while the course renders on the simulator screen with striking accuracy. Golf shots hit directly into the screen yield the same results as they'd expect on a real course, combining factors such as launch angle, spin, and an excuse to yell "Fore!"

Experienced guides lead riders and their steeds on trots throughout the grounds, occasionally stopping to admire the scenery or replace the dangling apples at the end of riders’ fishing rods. 12 Mile Stables also hosts riders for horsemanship lessons as well as wagon rides powered by the stable’s trusty team of clydesdales.
