Atop Segway i2 personal transports, guides at Cowtown Segway Tours escort explorers through the botanic gardens, the cultural district, and other Dallas landmarks. Voyagers take part in a 15- to 30-minute training session to become acquainted with their Segway's controls and favorite conversation topics before setting out on their sightseeing adventure. The Cultural District and Trinity Trails tour takes groups of about 10 sightseers on a cruise through the Fort Worth art district, where they take in the marvels of nature, science, and modern architecture that permeate the landscape. During the cultural district tour, riders also zip through a scenic portion of the 32-mile Trinity Trail while gliding past picturesque foliage and racing competitive squirrels on the path to Trinity Park.
As the doors of Moxley Manor creak open, guests may find themselves unsure of where truth ends and legend begins. Walking down foggy hallways and surrounded by disorienting strobe lights, they’re immersed in the haunting, real-life tale of the ill-fated Moxley family—all brutally murdered by a coldhearted mistress. These horrific events are brought to life by a cast of talented actors toting roaring chainsaws, severed heads, and the bodies of long-dead houseplants.
The charitable staffers at Moxley Manor scare the dickens out of their guests for a good cause—the haunted house’s proceeds benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The Moxley Manor also opens its doors to murder and mayhem on a few of the less spooky holidays, including Christmas and Valentine's Day.

Alongside the carefully selected staff of seasoned instructors of the family-friendly Discover Kayak, you might find yourself gazing into the sunset or paddling along a calm waterway where herons fly from tree to tree. The certified patient instructors lead both novice and experienced groups out onto the gentle waters of Lake Grapevine during leisurely tours and lessons in which they share kayaking techniques and tips for purchasing your own gear. And for those who'd like to explore the waters around Meadowmere Park on their own, they provide top-of-the-line rental gear, including touring, recreational, sit-on-top kayaks, and canoes. For most experiences the team offers, prior experience and gills are not necessary and instructors will set you up with safety gear, vessels, and the know-how to make your experience memorable.
Originally a TWA aircraft, the Southern Cross Douglas C-47 was adopted by the Army Air Corps to shuttle troops to the front. The twin-propeller plane survived World War II and in the ensuing years underwent a series of makeovers. Its career includes years spent as a reliable set of wings for Delta Air Lines, a troupe of skydiving enthusiasts, and at least one head of state. The C-47 is now meticulously restored to its original WWII-era condition and in the dutiful care of Greatest Generation Aircraft, a nonprofit organization that introduces 21st-century crowds to the C-47 during rides and aerial shows.
Pumpkin Village Pumpkin Patch opens its fields each October, welcoming visitors for manifold fall activities. Admission and hayrides are always free, and activity tickets grant families access to additional amusements, with all profits going to charity. After roaming the pumpkin patch or riding one of the farm's friendly ponies, guests can stop and launch a pumpkin at the Punkin Chunkin station for a chance at a prize, depending on where the gourd lands on the target or on the farm's ferris wheel. A petting zoo allows kids to get up close and personal with new furry friends, and a picnic area invites human companions to rest and refuel with fall-themed refreshments.
