Summit Climbing Gym sprawls across 10,000 square feet lined with towering structures for boundless bouldering and rope climbing along with its own onsite yoga studio. Manmade walls adorned with brightly colored handholds emerge from the ground, daring aspiring climbers to decode their paths. Fingertips dipped in rock chalk learn to cling to the hardened monoliths with firm grace, keeping on the lookout for the single book spine that triggers access to a revolving door and secret chocolate fountain. Guests can gab with experts about form and new-equipment purchases at the climb shop, or take a breather on a comfy couch to rest, reflect on a new route, or admire their brand-new Popeye forearms.

In addition to its scaling structures, Summit Climbing Gym hosts yoga classes in an on-site studio to boost climbing flexibility. Here, guests choose from a variety of formats, including CoreFusion, Slow Flow, Power Yoga, and Yin Yoga, a pose-intensive class that helps range of motion and strengthen connective tissues.

Run the Jailbreak is a 3.8-mile race through 14 muddy and challenging obstacles, and it is expected to draw more than 10,000 participants this year. A portion of the proceeds directly benefits Sower of Seeds, a non-profit ministry with compassion outreaches in India. Run the Jailbreak donations will help the organization provide clean drinking water and the resources to dig clean wells in India. After the race, racers will receive a free T-shirt and two complimentary beers (if racers are at least 21 years old). If you sweat out enough barbecue sauce during the race to crave more, the world's largest smoker will be in attendance, with post-race barbecue available for purchase. There will also be live music.

Imagine the moment when a shy, introverted young girl steps in front of a room full of people for the first time and speaks with confidence and clarity. This is a regular occurrence at Drama Kids International, where experienced teachers use a unique, copyrighted curriculum to help shape and focus outgoing children or draw shy children out of their shells. Classes for kids as young as 3 refine speech techniques, dramatic movement, and imagination, giving them the confidence to perform in front of an audience or finally ask their parents to change their names to Thespis. For older kids, aged 12–18, Drama Kids International offers the DKI Acting Academy, where serious theater kids can expand their speaking, acting, and auditioning skills through exercises and performances.

Canyons Climbing Gym, a climbing center plastered in hand-and-foot holds top to bottom, challenges guests with 80 bouldering obstacles and 90 top-rope and lead-climbing routes fit for all skill levels. Once safely strapped into a harness, climbers make their way up one of the various routes, building up bicep strength by resisting gravity’s pull more forcefully than a jet-propelled magic carpet. Eighty obstacles bedeck the facility’s climbing floor, allowing guests to also try their hand at climbing rounded rock faces without the use of a rope.
