Three generations after John Taves bought his first plot of land in the 1930s, grandson Loren Taves and his wife Corinne still keep the family farm running. At Taves Family Farms Applebarn, guests can navigate the expanded Corn Quest Maze, greet lovable critters at the petting barn, or tour the grounds on a hayride. A zipline lets thrill-seekers soar above the farm, and down below, edible ammo flies at non-ziplining targets from the corn gun and pumpkin cannon.
Project Climbing Centre satisfies grabby appendages with more than 9,000 square feet of climbing surface. The one-day bouldering pass ($13) outfits upwardly mobile bipeds with shoes ($5) and climbing chalk ($2) to surmount 13' boulder courses and fight territorial mountain trolls (no harness, ropes, or belays required). Upon reaching the summit, climbers jump or fall onto big, soft, cushiony mats. To the delight of visitors who buy five-pass packages ($60, does not include gear) and the dismay of those who fear change and its adverse effect on the coolness of their parachute pants, routes change monthly. Bouldering is known for its social camaraderie, so much so that Project Climbing Centre has dedicated Wednesdays as Ladies Night.

The veteran athletes at Peregrine Expeditions nurture their already intimate relationships with Mother Nature during skiing and climbing excursions into the icy peaks of Mount Baker or jagged rock faces of Mount Erie. Backcountry skiing courses hone snow-skimming techniques, and intense skiing tours toe the border between the United States and Canada on two-day treks that embark each morning from a hut at base camp. Adrenaline junkies foray into Forbidden Peak for two or three days, conquering the ins and outs of navigating ice, performing mountaintop rescues, and backpacking in challenging conditions. Kid-specific expeditions tone tiny muscles and teach bird calls used to ask eagles the way to the nearest latrine as youngsters grouped by age engage in courses that span one to five days.
Hours of activities come together under one roof at Laserdome Plus, where a 7,500-square-foot laser-tag arena, a rock-climbing wall, a 24-foot-tall Space Jungle, and an interactive LightSpace entertainment system make daylight seem frivolous. In the laser-tag arena, teams scurry up ramps through four levels of playing fields and ferret out opposing players hidden under the glow of violet LEDs and black lights. After honing teamwork, strength and stamina are tested at indoor rock-climbing walls equipped with 14 auto-belay ropes that make the wall scalable for all experience levels.
Kids aged 10 and younger explore Space Jungle, an elaborate jungle gym of rope bridges, lookout posts, web climbs, and a tunnel with a view into the laser-tag arena. For a challenge involving wits and motion in tandem, kids and adults pair up or challenge each other to games on the LightSpace interactive floor system. Its luminescent, pressure-sensitive tiles react to movement as participants play several types of motion-based or educational games. Vball, a velcro-based, no-mess version of paintball, rounds out the action-packed indoor offerings, each of which is available for drop-in or as part of a private party.
