  • Kim's Krypt
    Kim Yates's passion for the macabre spawned from a 1973 ride through the Haunted Mansion at Disney World, after which the child collected props and crafted monsters for her parents' front porch. Over the next several decades, Kim channeled her energy into drumming for a Baltimore metal band and building a sprawling Halloween attraction in her front yard and then watching it blossom into a full-scale haunted house in 1994. Despite various relocations, her indoor haunt has been growing ever since. Featured in the Baltimore Sun, Kim?s Krypt sets Charm City teeth chattering with 25- to 30-minute adventures teeming with unexpected spooks and surprises in a show that adds new scenes annually. A terror-ridden tradition for more than 21 years, the indoor haunt invites brave patrons to test their nerve against killer clowns soliciting screams, zombies seeking fresh flesh, and blood-spattered apparitions recklessly searching for change for a $20 bill. Staffers fortify patrons for their harrowing journey with a range of concession fare as they converse at the covered waiting area after receiving their first shock of the night in the form of free parking. A force of uniformed and plainclothes police officers patrol the building to ensure visitors scare in safety.

  • Poetry in Motion Studios
    Visitors to Poetry in Motion Studios find a flirtier side of fitness in the gym's pulse-pounding pole dancing workouts. Sure, the routines are designed to increase fitness—the pole work can build endurance, strength, and flexibility—but they aim to boost participants' self-esteem as well. Classes range from the beginner-friendly Pole Aerobics, which incorporates core-firming yoga moves, to the more intense Extreme Innercore Pole Training, an endurance session intended for advanced pole-dancers. Other offerings include programs especially for women ages 40 and up, seat-sculpting twerk sessions, and floor and chair work, which is not at all similar to moving furniture.
