Gory, brutal, and open only to adults, Chambers of Horror takes scaring to the extreme—so much so that HauntedAttraction.com made it #13 on its list of 25 Must See Haunts in 2010. A staff of mutilation professionals and special effects experts eschew childish zombies and goblins in favor of actual monsters: psychopathic doctors, lawyers, and congressmen willing to do unspeakable things to win your shrieked support on election day. Inside the torture chamber, grisly scenes and relentless assailants force visitors to grope through room after torment-riddled room, where they'll encounter horrors orchestrated by the insidious Herr Scudder, Lord Faust, and Lil Dahlia, the dismemberment queen.
Those in need of a little liquid courage before entering the darkness can swing by the open-air Splatter Bar and Lounge. Guests who become too scared to brave the chamber can also opt to stay at the bar, where horror movies, independent musicians, and sideshow performers drown out the faraway sound of a friend's terrified protestations that he is not really afraid.
Barnacles serves up a lunch and dinner menu of all-American soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees at both locations. Try a patty melt smothered in grilled onions and american cheese ($7.99) inside the family-friendly Norcross location, which boasts pool tables, arcade games, and an outdoor patio. The nosherie's new HD projector and flat-screen TVs help sports fans stay up-to-date on scores and new commercials while sharing an appetizer sampler of wings, potato skins, chicken tenders, and fried mozzarella ($11.49).
It’s hard to find a monkey to attend a child’s birthday party, and even harder to find a purple one. But at Monkey Joe’s, the furry purple mascot makes an appearance at every child’s party, delighting kids already excited by the inflatable-filled play area.
Youngsters whoosh down colorful slides, bounce in jump areas, and build agility in its obstacle courses. While their kids safely frolic on sanitized inflatables supervised by staffers, parents can relax in an adult area with free wi-fi, flat-screen TVs, and computer stations, as well as refreshments at the concession area. Kids 3 years old and under have a separate play area, meaning they can happily play without having to listen to the elderly 11-year-olds talk about “when I was your age.”
Zumba melds the upbeat rhythms of Latin music with aerobic exercise and interval training for a fun, effective workout. Fancy Footwork Fitness offers several styles of Zumba classes, such as Zumba for kids aged 4–12 and Z-Box Fitness, a combination of cardio boxing and dancing inside of cardboard boxes. Hot Hula Fitness, a workout inspired by the traditional Polynesian dances of the South Pacific, isolates larger muscle groups as drums beat in the background.
