A quarter-century after its 1987 rebirth, the Grapevine Opry brings the honky-tonk atmosphere to North Texas with weekly performances by touring performers. On Saturday nights, Rocky Gribble, the venue’s master of ceremonies, introduces country performers, big bands, bluegrass musicians, and ‘50’s-style rockers, and on the fourth Friday of the month, gospel singers descend upon the art deco theater to praise from the stage. Past performers have included the likes of Willie Nelson, LeAnn Rimes, and Miranda Lambert, but one of the biggest thrills at the Opry is seeing the country stars of tomorrow before they hit it big and start hiring robots to perform for them.
Zone Action Park thrills family members young and old with themed fun zones that quench thirsts for go-karting, bouncing, mini golf on two brand new 18-hole courses, and batting practice. The Speed Zone pits kids as young as 3 years old against each other for zipping go-kart action, whereas a bounce area lets them hop safely on inflatable jumps or slides. Batters practice against slow- or fast-pitch machines in the Strike Zone. Inside, the Game Zone fosters friendly competition with family-friendly games such as Big Bass Wheel and Treasure Quest fueled by hot fresh pizza from their cafe that happily serves large parties and birthdays.
Jump!Zone is an inflatable, indoor play center packed with moonwalks, bouncers, and giant slides for children ages 2 to 12. With a pass to six open play sessions, mini-humans can slip on a pair of socks and experience all of the facility's bouncy attractions. Children who prefer stationary entertainment can dominate the air-hockey table, leaving their adult counterparts free to recite the periodic table of elements backward in peace.
HappyJumper.com transforms special events into extra-special events with its roster of rentable attractions. What started with just bounce house rentals, the business has since stretched its multi-colored canopy over everything from hotdog and margarita stands to live entertainment, including live DJs and a 132-inch outdoor movie screen. It dispatches those items all over the Dallas- and Fort Worth-area, especially to birthdays, block parties, and family reunions.
Josh and Sesh, the friends who founded Photo Booth Dallas, know that customers want advanced technology. That's why they outfitted their photo booths with customizable LCD screens and instant Internet uploading capabilities. But they also know the value of good customer service—they schedule just one event per day, ensuring that each client gets their full attention.
Large groups of people can fit into each curtained booth, something utterly unacceptable at the opera. Once inside, guests press digital buttons to choose color or black-and-white prints, and then pose with a slew of provided props. Hosts can also opt for a video-enabled booth or request tuxedo-clad DJs to set the mood with 1,000-watt speakers, CD turntables, and intelligent light shows.
Party Time Corp.'s game masters bring the exciting stakes and ritzy glamor of a casino to living rooms with a fleet of poker and blackjack tables run by experienced card dealers.
