Street-style self-defense techniques underpin the martial-arts classes at Corpus Christi Family Martial Arts Academy. Both adults and kids attend junjou ryu jujitsu-karate classes, where they learn methods to avoid physical conflict, ways to defend themselves from attack, and how to take down a Roomba that's suddenly gained sentience. Besides getting students into better physical shape, these courses also impart self-discipline and confidence on the students, all while promoting a safe environment. Sparring rules, for example, dictate the wearing of full protective gear and the presence of a black-belt instructor.

Ear-splitting shrieks quicken the pulses of passersby as they approach the Nightmare Factory, a forsaken complex comprised of two distinct, hair-raising attractions. Once they’ve crossed the threshold into the blood-splattered corridors of Insanity51, voyagers tiptoe cautiously past hostile denizens as a narrative begins to emerge. The tormented spirits that haunt these hallways are insane captives subjected to top-secret government experiments that have rendered them even more fearsome and better informed on tax policy. In Nightmare 3D, foolhardy explorers walk through a carnival funhouse that looks more like the scene of a mass murder. Distorted mirrors and shifting floorboards create a skewed, sinister sense of reality, forcing guests to ponder if they have passed into another dimension populated by their worst nightmares.
