In addition to keeping guests safe by maintaining range rules, the staff also leads classes—including the NRA First Steps Pistol Orientation and Handgun Qualification License Course—teaching students firearm basics such as how to aim or clean a handgun. The range also connects to a pro shop, where a gunsmith repairs and customizes arms.
FunDamentals co-owner and operator Jennifer Goble doesn’t teach kids to count with flash cards. On the contrary, she believes that keeping kids active and engaged in their lessons not only helps them retain their newfound knowledge better, but helps them enjoy the experience of learning. This belief is the cornerstone of each program at her learning center. Lessons vary in topic based on age, from 1 to 5 years old, and may get kids involved in a number of physical and intellectual activities such as bouncing to delightful beats to bolster balance or learning shapes through colorful images. Interactive games, social time, and hands-on projects round out the center’s mix of fun and learning. Jennifer also actively involves parents in each lesson, giving adults a way to bond with their offspring and kids a strong spotter for learning to eventually bench-press their friends.
Hugh the Maze Master and the team at Maize Quest Fun Park believes that mazes are a great metaphor for life: we’re all on a journey, sometimes we feel lost, but, through it all, we persist in the face of defeat. For the last 15 years, Maize Quest Fun Park has followed this dogma, evolving from a single-attraction corn maze to a full-scale seasonal fun park with more than 25 attractions. The maze’s theme changes each year, with past labyrinths honoring Wild West gunslingers, Egyptian pharaohs, and prehistoric dinosaurs. Before or after navigating the corn-walled corridors, visitors can entertain themselves at other stations such as the bamboo forest, the Roller Racers indoor roller cars, or the cow train—a line of cow-themed cars pulled by a tractor or a team of steam-powered steers. Maize Quest holds birthday parties year-round, with groups blowing out candles in both the indoor party room and outdoor event space. The maze is also open for events for large groups such as scout troops, youth groups, and vacationing scarecrows.

Bay Meadow Farm's combined 110 acres of idyllic, verdant pasture and facilities give range to hale school horses equally suited to riding rookies and saddle specialists. Aspiring equestrians first receive a primer on horse anatomy, breeds, colors, and markings, learning to identify a three-stocking chestnut with a blaze or a silver dapple with vestigial shoulder nubs from ancient pegasi ancestors. After mastering proper grooming and saddling techniques, pupils will practice riding skills while learning to safely lead, mount, and dismount their four-legged companions. The farm’s environs span a riverbank pavilion and nearby deciduous forest, with plentiful long-stemmed grasses enabling famished riders to graze to their hearts’ content.
When new owners gained control of Putt Putt Fun Center in 2011, they brought with them a fresh vision that culminated in modern updates. The recently revised center encompasses a spectrum of family fun; the indoor area houses an arcade—fully loaded with air hockey and a Wheel of Fortune game—beside an inflatable labyrinth of moon bounces, slides, and obstacle courses used to train armies of balloon animals. Once visitors have exhausted themselves inside the glowing laser-tag arena or other sheltered activities, they can venture outside to the mini-golf course, where faux caverns and a wooden footbridge arc over abbreviated greens. Nearby, athletes smack baseballs into orbit from the batting cages.
