Soft surfaces are everywhere inside Castaway Play Cafe. This makes for an ideal play area for kids?and their parents for that matter. Tykes, along with their accompanying grown-ups, can conquer bounce houses before continuing the fun on one of the slides, atop a suspension bridge, or inside a special toddler area. Nearby, the lights dim inside a laser tag arena, where neon surfaces glow and friends and family duke it out with beams of light. On special occasions, the facility hosts all-night lock-ins, during which youngsters can sing karaoke, play arcade games, or debate the merits of agrarian social structures until their parents come and pick them up in the morning.

Castaway Play Cafe earns the last word in its name by housing a full-service restaurant in its facility. Here, cooks bake pizzas and bread sticks, assemble chicken wraps, and pile bacon and cheese atop burgers.

St. Lucifer's Asylum for the Mentally Insane was once a bustling, state-of-the-art psychiatric hospital that housed 12,000 patients and a staff of 700. Whether it was the frequent electroshock therapy sessions or the mysterious events that took place in the five miles of tunnels that ran beneath the facility, something quickly made things take a turn for the macabre. Stories made their way to the surrounding town about patients dying by the dozen, children waking up to find the mark of St. Lucifer on their skin, and retired nurses inflicting grotesque self-harm in department stores that have rules against that sort of thing. In 1974, the state closed the facility, but the horrors within didn't stop?especially in 13 Feet Under, the underground lab where the asylum's head physician conducted human experiments. The asylum's closing left patients trapped in the chamber, where they turned into mysterious creatures without faces or zombies forced to dine on the flesh of humans.

Throughout the Halloween season, St. Lucifer's Haunted Asylum and 13 Feet Under opens once more to let courageous visitors in to see the horrific scenes that were left behind. Participants walk carefully around darkened corners and through mysterious doorways, never sure of what they might encounter next. Those with a more proactive streak can fight off the undead themselves in Zombie Killers Black Ops Paintball, where they man one of eight turret-style paintball stations and put their target skills to the test.

At Whirlyball Novi, teams in motorized cars call whirlybugs spin and bump their way through one-hour bouts of a competitive wiffle-ball game that combines aspects of basketball, hockey, and jai alai. Bright red and yellow whirlybugs, powered by electricity and the tears of the defeated, race across a 4,000-square-foot court as their drivers toss balls to each other with plastic scoops. Referees keep track of each team's score as friends look on from the comfortable leather couches of the lounge. After matches, teams sip on drinks from the bar, feast on one of several meal packages, or continue calling each other "liver-licking kumkwats" over games of pool.

At Glow Golfin', there are no light fixtures. This isn't because the company has a long-standing beef with the estate of Thomas Alva Edison either. Rather, it's because its 18-hole indoor golf course is illuminated by glow-in-the-dark murals. Each piece of neon art depicts a picturesque woodland scene or classic underwater tableau, such as a school of fish or an undulating patch of seaweed. Given its uniquely festive environment, it's no wonder that Glow Golfin' also specializes in throwing parties for all sorts of occasions, including birthdays for kids and leisurely hangouts for adults.

Marvin Yagoda, the owner of Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, has amassed mechanical oddities and coin-operated machines since 1960 and regularly updates his collection of curiosities with new additions. A champion of all things outlandish, Marvin ensures that no nook or cranny in the 5,000-square-foot space remains unembellished with treasures such as P.T. Barnum's famous Cardiff Giant, as featured in RoadsideAmerica.com, or the AutoWed, America's first and only coin-operated wedding-ring dispenser for on-the-fly unions, replete with wedding music and an AutoDivorce voucher. Rafters atop 40-foot ceilings anchor low-flying model planes, and walls cloak themselves in vintage photos and pictures. Modern machines mingle with antique contraptions, whose old-timey noises and quaint images whisk visitors away to days of yore as effectively as a coal-powered wormhole.

A concession stand ensures that players remain sated and hydrated, and a prize shop enables guests to trade in their hard-earned game tickets for rewards such as figurines, toys, and yacht cruises with the Pac-Man family. To share its quarter-munching contraptions with as many visitors as possible, the museum remains open 365 days a year and offers free admission.
