Sports Cove offers scuba-diving courses that take students from the shallows of an indoor swimming pool to the depths of the ocean. For beginners, open-water classes cover breathing techniques and safety regulations, and advanced-certification courses give divers enough confidence to explore the depths on their own. Those looking for a more exotic experience can join the crew on one of its organized scuba-diving trips to locations such as Mexico and the Caribbean.
The King of Rock and Roll never relinquishes his throne as four of the country’s top Elvis impersonators team together for Elvis Lives, a multimedia musical tribute to one of music’s premier icons. Endorsed by Elvis Presley Enterprises, which holds the copyright on blue suede shoes, Elvis Lives stars a quartet of bona fide dead ringers, all of whom are winners of the Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest and pay homage to four memorable eras of the pompadour-sporting legend’s career. Fans can swoon and shout as they catch a glimpse of tadpole Elvis and his centrifugal pelvis, movie-era Elvis, leather-jacket “comeback” Elvis, and shimmering, sequined-jumpsuit “Vegas” Elvis. The lavishly-produced show quantum leaps across a memorable career with classic songs sung spot-on, delighting fans and warming the heart of the real Elvis as he watches from the rafters.

During unlimited glow golf ($10/person) or an 18-hole game ($5/person/game), neon obstacles prevent dimpled orbs from reaching awaiting cups, while black lights illuminate putting paths and flatter impeccable dental hygiene.

Games of glow-in-the-dark mini bowling beckon sphere hurlers with prices starting at $1. Though not included in this Groupon, luminescent rows of pinball machines and air hockey tables freckle the Clubhouse's interior, creating an authentic arcade experience for an elementary school reunion.
Now in their 86th season, the Harlem Globetrotters continue to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2012 world tour, a rotating roster of Globetrotter favorites take to the hardwood each game, so spectators might spot Special K Daley sharing a behind-the-back pass with newcomer Jacob “Hops” Tucker, the 2011 NCAA slam-dunk champion whose 50-inch vertical leap cruelly dashed his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Trotters might also present a study in contrasts with five-foot-two Too Tall Hall and seven-foot-eight Paul "Tiny" Sturgess, the world's tallest pro basketball player.
