Miles and Jayne Hall opened H&H Shooting Sports Complex to blend community, education, and retail with a commitment to safely developing the sport of shooting, helping them earn a five-star rating from the National Shooting Sports Foundation. At 36 pistol, rifle, and Olympic-grade air-gun lanes, sharpshooters can propel bullets toward paper targets using personal firearms, telekinesis, or rental firearms from manufacturers such as Glock and Smith & Wesson. Instructors lead private and group classes for gunslingers of all levels, which can teach basic firearm safety or advanced pistol techniques that explain why gumballs don't make effective ammunition. The 19-lane archery range mimics real-life conditions with its interactive digital hunting simulator, and the facility also hosts an on-staff gunsmith for repairs and a retail shop that stocks new firearms and accessories every week.
Skate Galaxy's outdoor sign is shaped like an orb surrounded by a ring of stars, proving that red planets are not just the birthplace of eccentric pop stars. Inside, skaters glide over a glossy white floor as neon lights trace patterns of planets and stars for them to follow and disco balls project glints onto the rink like twinkling comets. Even the carpet seems like a nightscape as it glows under the black light, directing eight-wheeled astronomers to the concession stand stocked with treats such as pizza, pretzels, and energy-boosting Clif Bars. All the while, air conditioning recalls the cold emptiness of space, where astronauts work tirelessly to keep the universe's thermostat at a comfy 65 million degrees below zero.
Inside Howe 2 Party's spacious photo booth, a professional-grade camera captures the grins, silly faces, and bunt signs broadcasted by up to 10 people. Unlimited black-and-white or color strips slide from the booth's lab-quality printer, which produces the results of each session within seconds. To ensure images aren't lost forever in wallets or after being used on Wanted ads, Howe 2 Party offers a scrapbooking service to preserve duplicate strips as well as high-resolution CD-ROMs stocked with all the pictures snapped during an event.
