  • Fly Free Skydiving
    Every single member of Fly Free Skydiving's large staff has?gone skydiving before, even the pilots, and the most experienced instructors boast upward of 7,000 jumps. They all remember the feeling of being a beginner, though, and they cater to first-timers with their tandem-jump programs.? Such experiences begin before the plane's tires ever leave the runway. Instructors describe the experience in great detail: how the plane flies at 80 miles per hour, how maximum free fall speed is 120?miles per hour, and how, after jumping, the transition between the two speeds happens so gradually it feels like floating. Afterward, instructors and skydivers head to a Cessna 182 aircraft and zip up to higher altitudes. Once there, instructors and students, who are strapped together, take the plunge and freefall for up to 40 seconds before the teacher deploys the parachute. Because the teachers control the descent, students can simply relax and enjoy the views of the rolling hills and Mississippi River or focus their energy on trying to high-five any passing birds.

  • Bentley SportsPlex and Family Center
    It?s hard to be everything to everyone, but Bentley SportsPlex gets close: it?s at once a facility for fine arts, tutoring, and an arcade. The family-fun center has bounce houses, a gym, batting cages, and a gymnasium for basketball and dodgeball. Just recently added: a 1200-square foot laser tag arena. In addition to its family-fun facilities, Bentley SportsPlex aims to be a haven for kids to express themselves. There?s a staff of talented professionals on hand that can provide guitar and bass guitar lessons, painting and craft classes, and tutoring services. There's even a theater branch so youngsters can learn how to accurately convey the pathos of what it?s like to be grounded.

  • Crystal City Underground
    In place of what once was a sand mine, Crystal City Underground has transformed more than 6 million square feet?approximately 200 acres?of sub-surface space into a climate-controlled entertainment facility. With 30- to 40-foot ceilings, thick pillars carved out of rock, and a lake, it presents visitors with a multifaceted underground experience, one that already includes sand volleyball, disc golf, and weekend barge rides. Future plans for Crystal City have it adding more recreational amenities en route to becoming a subterranean cultural and convention center.

  • Fallout Frenzy Laser Tag
    Patrons may have to look extra carefully to find Fallout Frenzy Laser Tag. That's because the laser-tag arena dispatches sharpshooters in an underground battlefield, home to a former sand mine and complete with strange cave structures and ceilings that reach heights of up to 40 feet. Additionally, because games unfurl underground in a climate-controlled environment, players never have to deal with rain, snow, or clouds shaped like ex–best friends.
