Resident American IndyCar Series champion Greg Gorden schools speed freaks on high-velocity driving techniques before passing the wheel for some friendly, hands-on competition on the Pikes Peak International Speedway. Gorden begins the 2.5-hour training with classroom instruction where he explains driving basics such as how the car works, how to properly navigate the track, and what to do if the steering wheel begins to self-replicate. Students ensconce themselves in program-provided driving suits and helmets before heading out to the track for two racing sessions in a Formula 2000 car. After the first six laps, newly minted acceleration apprentices can bombard instructors with tactical questions before climbing back behind the wheel for six additional laps to determine who earns bragging rights and who gets stuck singing the cars to sleep after the race is over.

Laser Quest's mazelike, multi-level arena lets up to 39 players weave through the clouded fog with the grace of a skydiving basket-maker—taking cover behind barriers, swooping around corners, and raining beam-bolts down from the upper decks. Players can compete either as friendly teams or as lone wolves. Once they are surrounded by intense crossfire rarely seen outside of stormtrooper raves, players must use strategy, stamina, and well-timed hand-mirror shields to defeat the opposition.

Harmony Bowl caters to ten-pin proclivities with fully kitted-out alleys. Today's deal can be redeemed for solo strike practice, shared among a group of up to 10 friends, or used to calm one terrified, time-travelling caveman with a familiar form of recreation. The option of bumper-equipped lanes allows gutter-ball-prone players to compete against more seasoned opponents. Though not included in this Groupon, hungry bowlers can avail themselves of the on-site snack bar and lounge, wetting mouths left dry from valiantly trying to blow over pins.

Students gather amid the golden glow cast onto Marmalade at Smokebrush’s exposed brick walls by rectangular floor lamps, awaiting instruction from the studio’s capable staff under the decorative flock of origami whooping cranes swooping overhead. Instructors pull from previous experience as dancers, movement therapists, and artists as they guide students in fitness sessions, including Latin-inspired Zumba, a dance-fueled workout that enables students to torch calories while learning dance-floor-ready skills. The studio’s yoga classes range from spinal-alignment-focused Iyengar yoga to dubstep yoga, which swaps normally serene background noise with thumping electronic beats. Aside from its yoga focus, Smokebrush’s expansive space also plays host to artwork exhibitions, environmentally focused workshops, and speed dating for ex-claustrophobics.
