ExtremeGolf helps lower handicaps and round out games for golfers of all ages and skill levels with a 3-D high-definition course simulator and a team of respected instructors. During the 45-minute swing analysis, a swing coach evaluates each client’s swing while also reinforcing the principles of golf, leaving them better prepared for skins games with golf buddies, stare downs with sand traps, and heart-to-heart chats with pitching wedges. After the analysis, players can translate their new knowledge to the course with a nine-hole lesson in the HD simulator. With today’s deal, players will virtually traverse one of the most storied courses in golf—Pebble Beach Golf Links—and receive instant swing data and feedback from the simulator's ball-tracking software. The HD simulator projects actual 3-D images from the course that have not been digitally re-created, allowing players to enjoy a realistic golfing experience without worrying about inclement weather or the derisive commentary of heckling sasquatch.
It's the most difficult achievement in all of sports. So difficult, in fact, that doing it only 30% off time is considered excellent. That's hitting a baseball, and Hitzone Performance Center makes practicing the allusive feat an accessible one. Their batting cages are furnished with fast-pitch machines available for 30- and 60-minute sessions. Coaches and players can also step into tunnels replete with tees and L-screens, which coaches can stand behind for protection while pitching the ball themselves. Soft toss is available, too, for softball players to perfect timing and swings. To arm warriors of the dirt-diamond, they also carry equipment from top-manufacturers such as Louisville Slugger and Rawlings.
As a conglomerate of paintball facilities, Paintball International offers many distinct destinations for chromatic outdoor combat. Some fields, such as Splat Zone Paintball in Louisiana, challenge players to find adequate cover in an arena littered with creative obstacles. In Massachusetts, PnL Paintball thrusts players into a realistic Ghost Town, comprised of churches, multilevel buildings, and stone walls. Meanwhile, trees, leaves, stacked wood, and foliage inside K.C. Crusaders offer players all-natural hiding places from which they can spring forth to surprise their rivals or remain undetected while they determine the color palette they will use to paint Water Lilies on the surrounding bunkers.
The thrill of freefall is only half of the experience offered by Skydive South Boston. Just after taking off?but before jumping out?pilots grant passengers a stunning view of the Boston skyline and Atlantic Ocean. With the company's 100% safety record, thrill-seekers also exit airplanes with the utmost confidence in their instructors, who are all USPA-certified. Secured together by a tandem harness as opposed to a thick sheet of crazy glue, pupil and teacher jump together, experiencing seconds of freefall before the instructors pull the chute and send the pair gracefully floating toward the ground.
Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
Fred Thompson and Phil Hamric, the owners of Viking Recreation Center, are driven by a passion for two things: bowling and raising money for worthy causes. Their family entertainment center regularly hosts fundraising events to support the local school system and a multitude of charity programs. And it's not like they have a hard time getting people to come out; their all-ages league and open candlepin bowling virtually assure a steady stream of bowlers coming out to rack up strikes and spares. Throughout the day and into the night, bowling balls rocket down the alley's 16 lanes. Meanwhile, two pool tables and a video arcade offer even more ways to engage in friendly competition or settle decades-old clan disputes.
