The Urban Assault Ride challenges cyclists to speed from obstacle course to obstacle course across their city during eco-friendly scavenger hunts that benefit local charities. Teams draft a road map to try to thwart the competition and be the first to complete the race, pausing at a series of checkpoints, where they must surmount such active roadblocks as slip 'n' slides, bike jousting, and reciting the Iliad in Pig Latin. The first team to conquer each challenge and cross the finish line is declared the victor, but all participants celebrate their efforts at a lively after-party stocked with snacks, beer, nonalcoholic drinks, and prizes.

In the 1700s, a hot air balloon was a strange and potentially worrisome sight, especially because pilots often landed in unsuspecting civilians’ backyards. To build goodwill with anyone they scared, balloon pilots carried a bottle of champagne on every flight. This tradition of the convivial champagne toast still lives on at Adventure Balloon Sports, where, after each landing, the company’s FAA-certified pilots pour a celebratory glass of bubbly for each passenger.

But before the toast, the adventure begins as flights soar skyward, showcasing Colorado’s rugged terrain and the majestic sprawl of the Rocky Mountains. No two flights are the same—after departing, pilots can only fully control the balloon’s vertical motion, meaning balloons often safely land in neighboring towns, rather than in the local hot air balloon parking lot.

On weekends, the 10 bowling lanes at The Connection in the UMC at UC Boulder glow under neon club lights so that guests can practice their dance moves as well as their curve balls. The lanes are also open throughout the week, ready to entertain students, townsfolk, and thrill-seeking armadillos who wander into the entertainment hub tucked into the University of Colorado Boulder's University Memorial Center. The center's eight regulation pool tables won the runner-up title for Best Pool on Colorado Daily’s CU & Boulder's Best 2011 list, and it also hosts pinball, foosball, and air hockey tables, a full wall of arcade machines, and games for Wii and other systems.
