Adrenaline rushes often lead to addiction. Having developed a tolerance through many a marathon and obstacle course, the elite athletic team of Adrenaline Games wanted to capture the thrill of the first rush. To that end, they crafted a treacherous trail that gets the pulses of even the most hardened adrenaline junkies pumping. The details of the course are kept top secret as not to spoil the element of surprise, but it can be revealed that elements of mud, foam, and water play their part in keeping competitors adrenalized and dirty as they vie for the top Junkie prize. After the finish line has been slathered in mud, participants can catch their breath while celebrating their victories with food, drinks, and live music.

When not cantering in the outdoor sand ring, leaping over water in the grass jumping field, and trotting down wooded trails and wetlands, Prairie Star’s horses graze in their paddocks at their home at Old Barrington Farm. Beyond its expansive amenities, the facility is home to the North Barrington Riding Academy, whose instructors foster a supportive, goal-oriented environment as they groom young riders to become accomplished competitors in the sport of hunter/jumper. In inclement weather, lessons can move indoors to the 85'x210' heated ring, where parents or spectators can observe from a viewing room complete with a fireplace, wireless Internet, and flat-screen TV.

Fitness 19 welcomes exercisers into its pristine workout facilities lined with Life Fitness cardio machines, free weights, and fully staffed childcare rooms. A personal trainer works with fitness seekers to create motivating custom workouts, helping members set goals and chase them down with the precision of a saint bernard leading a search-and-rescue mission in an inflatable-ball pit. Heart rates rise and calories evaporate during jogs on treadmills and pedaling sessions on stationary bikes. Dumbbells and barbells encourage lifting and curling, and Smith machines help bodies perform squats safely and effectively. Make muscles ripple with plate-loaded strength-training equipment, an eight-station crossover cable, or high-intensity deadlifts with a complimentary water bottle.

Featuring an abundance of indoor inflatable slides, jumps, and obstacle courses, Monkey Joe's caters to energetic kids 12 years and younger regardless of the day's forecast. Today's Groupon lets an adult and their youngster swing by for a bout of supervised bouncing during any of the gym's open hours, which take place every day of the week. Adults always get in for free, but are asked not to jump on the play equipment unless they are watching a child four years or younger or just won bingo. Instead, accompanying elders can relax while monitoring little ones in Monkey Joe's amenity-laden parent nook, which features comfortable seating, free wireless Internet, and flat-screen televisions that never need you to wipe their noses. Kids three years and younger can scoot confidently about the super-soft surfaces of the separate Mini Monkey Zone. After battling through inflatable obstacle courses and contending with bouncy minotaurs, kids can scuttle over to the arcade to use their six tokens for games of skee-ball, basketball, or jump rope; most games require one token.
