More than 12,000 patients once walked the halls of Saint Lucifer's Haunted Asylum. There, cruel electroshock experiments and unexplained tragedies were the norm, and “release” was nothing more than a laughable concept. It was a place where patients frequently disappeared in five miles of underground tunnels, a place where the body count was abnormally high. It was called evil and said to be haunted. And then it was ordered closed by the state in 1974.

Yet, once a year during the Halloween season, the asylum opens its doors to intrepid visitors. These guests must navigate the ward's halls in the company of tortured spirits—patients who were subject to the whims and tools of a mad doctor. Even after they have braved the hospital, they must then pass the seven gates of 13 Feet Under, where zombies, bloodless corpses, and ghouls devoid of facial features prowl.

The two terrifying locales have earned a spot on Haunted Attraction magazine's "Must See 25 Haunted Houses" of 2011 for their devotion to harvesting screams. According to an ABC feature, they employ professional actors to enact their up-close scares, rather than relying on college improv teams who demand that patrons shout out their greatest fear before entering.

Initially conceived of in 1987 as a way for an avid paintball player and his friends to acquire discounted merchandise, Lone Wolf Paintball swiftly evolved into a multi-location business throughout Michigan. One year after opening, Bristol Apple Orchard in Almont accommodated the budding business with its first playing field. These days, an indoor field allows for year-round paintball. The 20,000 sq. ft. facility encompasses a speedball field with artificial turf, which spectators can observe from viewing areas including a second-story observation deck. Referees ensure that each player competes safely.

A stress-shedding family-friendly sport for splatter soldiers of all types and stripes, paintball grants its combatants the perfect backdrop for one-on-one duels or group-oriented maneuvers. Spread out your tickets over six solo sessions, or round up five friends, coworkers, or NBA starters for a fast-paced adrenaline-fueled jaunt across unique indoor and outdoor terrains that can include pastoral fields and themed villages. Each trek arms guests with a battle mask and goggles, semiautomatic paintball marker, hopper and tanker, and orientation that lays out the rules, safety precautions, and the symbolism behind to Jackson Pollack’s early work.

The ponds, streams, and rolling terrain at Goodrich Country Club shape the 18-hole, par 70 course into two distinct nines. A pond may separate the first and second holes, but the front nine consists mostly of dry, straight-ahead fairways that lead to elevated greens. This straightforward first act helps players get comfortable on the course, but that doesn't mean it's a cakewalk. With a narrow fairway and trees lining the left side, the 391-yard, par-four third hole is the course's most treacherous, sometimes prompting fearful golf carts to buck and bray as they approach the tee box.

The back nine presents an entirely different challenge. Water hazards play a prominent role on six holes, requiring players to focus on accurate shotmaking and sound course management. The second nine also hosts the course's signature hole: the par-four 17th cuts a memorable route with two water hazards pinching the fairway and a pond in front of the green, which will have golfers second-guessing their club selection and searching for turtles to bounce their approach closer to the pin.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Length of 5,459 yards from the tips
  • Course rating of 66.4 from the tips
  • Slope rating of 104 from the tips
  • Three tee options

Though it may be the decorative centerpiece of a miniature golf course, there is nothing miniature about the waterfall at Lake Nepessing Golfland. The perpetually gushing rock formation looms above the emerald putting circuit, casting a mist into the air that cools down golfers as they attempt pressure-packed putts or handle golf balls fresh from the microwave. In addition to its Lilliputian links, the family fun center helps golfers groom their swings with a lighted driving range that offers both grass and artificial turf hitting areas. A staff of instructors roams the driving bays, doling out instruction and video-based swing analysis.

The thrum of humming engines fills Lake Nepessing Golfland’s grounds, emanating from the center’s outdoor go-kart track. The track is lighted for after-sunset racing, and guests can choose to drive solo or ride along friends, family, or adopted mannequins in a tandem kart.
