With classic replica airsoft guns aimed, teams navigate a 25,000-square-foot indoor battlefield. Within the battlefield's three playing areas, gun-toters conceal themselves behind stacks of tires, stationary vehicles, and small wooden buildings. As combatants slink behind crates and boxes in the shadows, opposing players ferret them out using the light affixed to their weapons and a streaming fire of plastic BBs zipping at speeds up to 375 feet per second. Game play in the radioactive room commences under the glow of black lights that turn the graffiti-laden grounds phosphorescent and opponents' teeth bluer than their songs about battles lost. Adjacent to the battleground, airsoft enthusiasts mingle in the lounge space equipped with a retail shop, party area, and arcade for parties and group events.

A-Game Skate Academy’s staff of experienced skating instructors helps pupils perfect their gliding form year-round from the indoor rink at A-Game Sportsplex. Though the teaching approach varies based on skaters’ age and experience, the skating curriculum begins with classes that focus on basic balance and posture before pupils advance to more challenging material in later classes, such as hockey-specific skills, figure-skating jumps, and how to parallel-park a zamboni.

A-Game also offers many open-skate sessions, allowing guests to practice their form on their own time. Before taking to the ice, skaters can peruse the pro shop for skate guards, blade covers, gloves, and other necessities or rent out a pair of skates so they don’t have to fashion their own out of a cowboy boot and a machete.

On the evening of November 30, 1864, the town of Franklin, Tennessee, bore witness to more than five hours of carnage as Confederate forces under the command of General John Bell Hood assaulted an entrenched corps of Federal troops led by General John M. Schofield. The heaviest fighting entailed a frontal attack on the Federal lines—incorporating about 20,000 soldiers on each side, or more soldiers than Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg. General Hood hoped this attack would dislodge the Federal forces and that he would be able to eventually recapture Nashville.

Over the course of the next five hours, this charge resulted in a staggering number of casualties and General Schofield steadily withdrew his forces toward Nashville, leaving behind a battle-scarred town as well as a battered Confederate force. Today, the Battle of Franklin Trust allows visitors to learn more about this key battle by visiting and taking guided tours of several sites that played integral roles in the events that took place on and around November 30, 1864.

The Carter House served as the command post for General Jacob D. Cox, a Federal officer tasked with overseeing the construction of defensive positions as the Confederate forces advanced. These defenses were constructed within 300 feet of the home, and guests have the opportunity to explore the grounds as well as the home, including the basement where the Carter family and roughly two dozen civilians sought shelter from the battle being fought outside their doors.

One of those civilians was Albert Lotz, whose own home still stands 110 steps away from the Carter residence. The Lotz House bears its own battle scars, too, including a charred indentation in the wood flooring that was caused by an errant cannonball.

Located one mile away from the two houses, the McGavock family's Carnton Plantation also welcomes guests, providing them with tours of the site that served as the area's largest field hospital after the fighting ceased. The plantation features two acres of land that the McGavocks offered as the final burial site for approximately 1,500 Confederate soldiers who died at the Battle of Franklin, making it the largest privately owned military cemetery in the nation.

The little ones two and under can enjoy a gated play area designed just for them.

The Treehouse's proprietors, who are parents of young children themselves, work with trained staff to keep the jovial funhouse meticulously clean and safe. There are plenty of diverse activities for everyone, including free Wi-Fi.
