As Halloween nears, a cold chill takes over the normally peaceful grounds of the Pocono Bazaar Flea Market. It has nothing to do with the weather. Scary clowns, zombies, and other terrors wait around dark corners, only coming into view once lights flash and loud sounds announce their presence. Luckily, the horror is confined to 3D Frights. As its name suggests, the haunted attraction outfits its visitors with pairs of 3D glasses, which make the scary clowns appear closer, the ceilings look like they're caving in, and the watch on your wrist look like you just missed dinner.
After visiting many of the area's kid-friendly play spaces with her own two daughters, Tara Carson decided to take a swing at it herself. Wanting to create a fun and affordable place for parents to hang out with their kids, Tara opened Jellybean Town, USA, a place that stokes kids' imaginations. Parents and tots flock to the multicolored space for art classes—both for kids and adults—where they might paint pictures, design a mosaic, or make a bust of their favorite teacher with duct tape. Open art and playtime sessions give visitors access to art stations and opportunities for imaginative pretend play, such as Jellybean Town's costume shop, play market, and library.
Stacked logs, stumps, and tangled thickets make good hiding spots—or are they obstacles? Clad in camouflage and goggles, players navigate that question while stalking the woods at The Paintball Asylum. They grasp paintball guns during color-splattering rounds of the game, which resembles a grittier Capture the Flag. Extra supplies for the matches are available at The Paintball Asylum's pro shop, and the space accommodates birthday and bachelor parties, as well as corporate team-building events.

The professional, classically trained instructors at Noble Art Institute of Music edify instrument wranglers with in-depth music lessons. Students ages 3 and up tuck into one-on-one sessions with degreed teachers. Each lesson is customized to the participant's level and based upon his or her needs, teaching classical-guitar students to master chords, piano scholars to sail through scales, and vocal apprentices to tailor their arias to a particular concert hall or elevator. Those who continue at the school can participate in year-round events, such as recitals, chamber-music ensembles, community-service gatherings, and clandestine hoedowns, which strictly forbid sheet music.
