A maze's twists and turns are hard enough to navigate in broad daylight, but Colorado Pumpkin Patch ups the ante with its blindfolded golf-cart maze. While the blindfolded party sits behind the wheel, a partner rides shotgun to shout out directions around the course's tricky turns and obstacles.
Upon emerging from the maze, visitors can check out Colorado Pumpkin Patch's other family-friendly autumnal activities. They can pretend-steer a restored 1957 tractor, or hop aboard a modern tractor for a hayride around the grounds. While kids explore slides, pyramids, and mazes all constructed from straw, guests of all ages can pet live turkeys and alpacas, which are really just llamas in witness protection. And, of course, Colorado Pumpkin Patch showcases local gourds aplenty, which can be launched from catapults or taken home from a pre-picked patch.
Arthur Murray Dance Studios has been a leading name in social dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and the Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, the Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Clients who arrive to lessons partnerless will be paired up with certified instructors. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
