Three baseball cages and three softball cages housed in the indoor Batters Box facility hurl their best stuff into the strike zone so that baseball players can polish their cuts. Various settings enable all levels to improve, serving slower pitches to younger and less-experienced players and transforming into hecklers so experienced players can master their game faces. Batter’s Box also employs a couple of decorated instructors in Jerry Hairston Sr., a 14-year major leaguer and father to two current pros, and Autumn Champion, a former standout at the University of Arizona and current record holder for the fourth-highest softball batting average in the nation.

When a team of locals designed Tower Theatres, they imagined a movie-watching experience based around comfort. They corralled comfortable, rocker-style chairs and love seats and spaced the rows 18 vertical inches apart to give moviegoers unobstructed views of the screen. And the 4 ample feet separating each row from the one in front of it allows for plenty of leg stretching, easy maneuvering past fellow guests, and luxurious preshow yoga routines. Before the previews roll on their first-run blockbusters of choice, patrons can test their coordination on video games or air hockey or select concessions such as pizza, nachos, and Hebrew National hot dogs for midmovie sustenance.
On tandem flights, Sonora Wings Hang Gliding's instructors, who are certified by the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, take their customers to soaring altitudes, where they glide like birds over Arizona’s Sonoran Desert. The unique vantage point allows for breathtaking views—wild mustangs running through the desert, distant mountains, and red-tailed hawks that soar within a robotic arm's grasp. To reach these heights, hang gliders are towed behind the company's Dragonfly, a small aircraft specifically designed to launch hang gliders. Sonora Wings Hang Gliding's pilots and instructors take off on these adventures from sunrise to sunset, and they can capture each moment on HD video.
