Galaxy's somewhat predictably-themed, glow-in the-dark mini golf course beckons gamers of all ages and skill levels. Take on iridescent aliens, blazing rocket ships, and lazy, ball-blocking space stations for 18 holes of indoor fun. The glowing outer space hazards and moving obstacles make for challenging courses presenting dangers to wayward golf balls and wandering dark matter. Each ticket gets two avid gamers two full 18-hole rounds on the black-lit course, with the last hole awarding a prize to anyone making a hole-in-one. Mini-golfers with miniature mini-golfers can take advantage of children's tickets ($4) for a family fun night, day, or indeterminably-blacklit timeperiod.

Professional instructor and performer Lorrie Pierce bestows her extensive knowledge and passion for Middle Eastern– and American-style belly dance upon women of all ages. During informative classes, students practice the sensual dance’s intricate techniques while suited up in traditional coined garb much like what you'd find in a wishing well’s closet. Beginners’ sessions introduce basic choreography, advanced lessons enlist finger cymbals and more complex drills, and all classes help singe calories and sculpt muscles. Dancers can further hone their nascent skills during organized performance opportunities, including an annual recital. Pastel yellow walls enclose Hourglass Bellydance’s studio, where glossy wood floors lead to a wall of mirrors that helps participants observe moves and check blind spots.
