"You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, the AMF Bowling Co. was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in the bowling world, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public.

Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature advanced scoring systems, upgraded interiors, laneside video walls at select locations, and a delicious menu of traditional American dishes and snacks.

Real Time Sports & Entertainment, recently under new ownership and management, knows that it takes more than just their delicious burgers and hand-cut fries to keep their customers coming back night after night. They host live bands and DJs seven days a week to keep dance floors filled with partiers well into the night, while 22 high-def screens broadcast sports for excited fans. Meanwhile, bartenders whip up cocktails and pour beers that wash down dishes such as Cajun catfish poboys, turkey burgers, or chicken wings, as guests enjoy conversation and a convivial atmosphere. And no matter the day, the dedicated owners promise real people, a basket of fish with your name on it, and a bottle of ketchup with some guy named Heinz’s name on it.

If the words Reindeer Manor have you imagining sleigh rides, warm cocoa, and carols by the fire...you might want to stay home. Because this Reindeer Manor isn't out to make you sing?it wants to make you scream.

Now in its 41st year of operation, Reindeer Manor Halloween Park facilitates thrills and chills with not one, but three haunted attractions in one location. Daring patrons must first brave the cursed hallways of Reindeer Manor Haunted House, it's setting inspired by the unspeakable horrors that occurred in the real-life Reindeer Manor around a century ago. Those who survive will find themselves forced to face the evils of the 13th Street Morgue, where an entire family was once murdered in cold blood. Then they'll make a descent into the Dungeon of Doom, which, in its heyday, was a saloon where several townspeople fell over dead after drinking tainted well water and finding out they were over-charged for it. If that description fails to send shivers up your spine, consider this: unlike at some haunted attractions, the spooks at Reindeer Manor can and may touch visitors at any time, meaning you may just find yourself one of the manor's newest residents before the night is through.
