Almost every step reveals some new horror within the spooky confines of Frightworld America's Screampark, which the Travel Channel's America's Scariest Halloween Attractions described as "a macabre circus of shocks." It typically takes around two hours to navigate the labyrinth of ominous hallways and monster-infested rooms. The park consists of five themed attractions?with new frights introduced each season?which are all connected to create one massive, pulse-elevating experience.

The designers base these frightening exhibits on inherently unnerving locales?such as an abandoned asylum, an isolated cabin, or a hotel room without access to HBO. In each setting, costumed actors lie in wait to burst forth and startle passersby. After successfully braving all five areas, groups can spend the evening swapping stories of their favorite scare while enjoying a bite from Frightworld's concession stand.

For the founders of Kung Fu Tea, kung fu isn't just a martial art?it's a way of life, a drive to constantly better oneself and push limits. Though this might seem like a lofty inspiration for a tea company, it's a testament to the staff's passion for their craft and dedication to creating drinks based in authentic Taiwanese recipes. Perhaps that's why, since being founded in New York, the franchise has spread to more than 40 locations in North America alone?not to mention branches in Southeast Asia and on all 62 of Saturn's moons. At each location, fresh fruit and teas form the base of frozen and chilled drinks?from a red bean-herbal jelly milk tea to a taro slush to a frozen caramel macchiato.

The intermittent whooshes of practice swings and the piercing din of a well-struck drive soundtrack guests' visits to Airport Driving Range, where golfers can prepare for their next day at the links. The range boasts ample space for players to unsheathe their driver, as well as grass hitting areas for those who prefer a natural feel and artificial hitting mats for golfers with a debilitating fear of earthworms. Golfers can hone their swings under sunny skies or during inclement weather, as Airport Driving Range is open rain or shine and many of its hitting mats are protected from the elements by a yellow canopy.
