James Run Equestrian Center cofounders Sandrine Goble and Rachael North bring with them more than four decades of equestrian experience as well as championships on the French, American, and World circuits. Instead of carrying on an international rivalry that might’ve ended in a no-holds-barred underground jousting tournament, they decided to combine their talents and open an equestrian center. Sprawling across more than 40 acres of sylvan countryside, James Run Equestrian Center welcomes riders with a large indoor arena, an outdoor riding area, many miles of riding trail, and a training track. Sandrine and Rachael use the extensive facility to pass on their English-riding expertise to budding equestrians during 60-minute lessons, where they nurture young talents while focusing on the areas of eventing, jumping, and dressage.
Drivers rev their engines across three separate raceways at The Go-Kart Track, where thrill seekers can split their time between high-speed chases and rounds of mini golf. The family-oriented entertainment center's three distinct go-kart tracks cater to drivers young and old. The junior track safeguards youngsters with an automatic braking system every time they release the gas pedal, and the family track lets people ride shotgun in double-seater cars. Finally, the drift track—coated in a special powder—allows drivers 54 inches and taller to slip and slide around turns, drifting like their favorite racecar driver or continent. Aside from its automotive pursuits, The Go-Kart track features a mini-golf course with nine professionally designed holes peppered with obstacles such as cacti and tires.
As a part of the Maryland state-park system, The Graham Equestrian Center allows riders to navigate the several miles of trails winding throughout Gunpowder Falls State Park. The center draws its name from Dr. Albert Graham, who deeded his farm and 22-stall barn to the park system in order to help fortify the bond between Maryland citizens and their natural surroundings.
Through horseback-riding lessons, the center's trainer, Jim McDonald, educates children and adults on all aspects of horsemanship and horse management, from basic riding techniques to advanced grooming methods. His lessons and events also help riders understand herd dynamics as they strengthen relationships with both horses and their landscape.
Hugh the Maze Master and the team at Maize Quest Fun Park believes that mazes are a great metaphor for life: we’re all on a journey, sometimes we feel lost, but, through it all, we persist in the face of defeat. For the last 15 years, Maize Quest Fun Park has followed this dogma, evolving from a single-attraction corn maze to a full-scale seasonal fun park with more than 25 attractions. The maze’s theme changes each year, with past labyrinths honoring Wild West gunslingers, Egyptian pharaohs, and prehistoric dinosaurs. Before or after navigating the corn-walled corridors, visitors can entertain themselves at other stations such as the bamboo forest, the Roller Racers indoor roller cars, or the cow train—a line of cow-themed cars pulled by a tractor or a team of steam-powered steers. Maize Quest holds birthday parties year-round, with groups blowing out candles in both the indoor party room and outdoor event space. The maze is also open for events for large groups such as scout troops, youth groups, and vacationing scarecrows.
