Like the kids and families who make their way through its 3.5 miles of husk-lined trails, the corn maze at P Bar Farms wears a different costume each Halloween. This year, it celebrates the Oklahoma City Thunder's NBA Finals appearance with a winding logo-shaped maze that has 95 different decision points and innumerable twists and turns. After navigating the hand-cut labyrinth, a feat that generally takes most maze-goers about one hour, folks can make their way around the property and enjoy P Bar Farms’ many other fall-flavored activities. The Main Barn serves as the hub where visitors can recharge with concessions, relax at picnic tables, or challenge a rooster to a sing-off during free karaoke sessions. Outside, families can enjoy a hayride over to the farm's pumpkin patch or make their way to the barnyard to pet farm animals. The property's big red barn plays host to adrenaline-fueled laser-tag matches, and mini golf allows for more leisurely family fun.
Pitch black except for fluorescent, zig-zagging putting greens, Lights Off Golf's glow-in-the-dark facility invites families and friends to test their putting acumen in 18- or 36-hole contests. Guests can also opt for a day pass to thoroughly test Newtonian physics against the difficult angles and elevation changes of the course. Lights Off Golf's party area can also host birthday parties and the wandering crowds of clubgoers drawn like moths to neon lights.
As an affiliate of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association, the Randall County Roller Dames challenge a lineup of regional rivals to fast-paced bouts of derby, eliciting cheers from an adoring flock of fans. The athletes sport helmets, skates, and tough nicknames based on obscure Cockney rhyming slang as they race around a circuit, elbowing and knocking away enemy skaters in a dizzying display of skill and teamwork. The Roller Dames exhibit a lasting loyalty to their home turf, not only through a series of six exhilarating home bouts, but also through yearly charity benefits for nonprofits such as Habitat for Humanity and Make-A-Wish Foundation.
