Though the titular owner of Crazy Dave's Music might tell you his music shop began with dragons and goblins, it really began with the even more fantastic 1980s. Years after assuming ownership of a failing Orange Park pawn shop, Dave realized that the most popular items in his inventory were always musical instruments. In keeping with the demand, he banded together with local musicians to turn his space into a fully realized music store. Construction crews renovated new rooms for live sound equipment and effects lighting, filled the old jewelry cases with pedals and microphones, and lined the walls with mixing equipment and synthesizers. Today, Dave's store still houses a menagerie of instruments and accessories. Shelves and corners filled with DJ gear and high-end guitars bear the logos of famous brands such as Fender, Moog, and Yamaha.
At Skate Station Funworks, joyful chatter emanates from a bevy of attractions that equip players with go-karts, golf clubs, or roller skates. The 800-foot-long go-kart track stretches beneath 22 gas-powered carts that zoom around the turns in blurs of neon color, and the Swamp Golf mini-golf course lets club swingers romp through pirate-themed marshy scenery and greens without the hassle of timeshare-selling parrots. Arcade-goers shoot hoops or man the wheel at racing consoles as skaters glide over the surface of a wood-floored rink with the grace of a tutu-clad hovercraft. Elsewhere, mountaineers attempt to conquer the heights of a rock wall in three consecutive tries, and six fully automated batting cages pitch baseballs and softballs at three speed levels. A three-level play zone delights sprouts ages 10 and younger, and laser-tag opponents take a break from playfully zapping each other to visit Wally’s Café to refuel.
Olan Mills Inc. provides families with high-quality portraits, continuing a mission that was established more than 75 years ago by founder Olan Mills Sr. Skilled in the art of capturing infants, children, families, and bunny-ears-giving ghost orbs on film, Olan Mills’s experienced smile snappers will take a series of poses amid a variety of backgrounds and lighting options. The studio is equipped with a selection of props—including numbers for birthdays, toys, and boxes—and patrons may bring their own photo-enlivening items from home. The resulting photos find their way to prints in natural color, black and white, or sepia tones; they can also be immortalized in the studio's signature Old Masters style, a canvas brushed with highlights to re-create the look of an oil painting. Like the gentlemanly mariners of ages past with their full schedule of sea battles, the photographers welcome appointments, but do not require them.

Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son or daughter's ongoing sessions and progress in pronouncing "quinoa."
