  • The Big E Gaffney
    The Big E ? Entertainment Outlet combines the joys of a movie theater, bowling alley, indoor playground, and full arcade into one location. The full movie theater shows the latest releases on eight screens. The bowling alley hosts both league and public play, as well as dedicating every Friday and Saturday night to proper cosmic bowling events where they turn down the lights, turn up the music, and chuck bowling balls at the stars to try to knock them from the sky. The FunE Business Playland and Arcade occupies the rest of the complex, combining an indoor playground with an arcade. Here, the playground features slides, climbing equipment, and a Ball-O-Sity Blast Center where kids can shoot foam balls from little cannons, running and playing in an environment designed specifically with safety in mind. They can also take the bumper cars for a spin. The arcade, on the other hand, challenges visitors with tandem vehicle racing, Guitar Hero, and other modern favorites, as well as classic installations such as ski ball. Like at any good arcade, the games dispense tickets based on performance, and electronic points can be exchanged for prizes including MP3 players, All-Terrain Vehicles, or an equal number of tickets in a different color.

  • Break-Away Farm
    Breaking away from a pack of speeding racehorses or breaking a bucking bronco may be the first guesses a casual onlooker would consider when pondering the origins of the name Break-Away Farm. But the name actually refers to the farm’s owners—Mark and Mary Lou Greenwall, formerly of Cleveland Park Stables—who, in 2005, decided to break off the beaten path and start their own equestrian business. Members of USEF, UPHA, and ASAC, the husband-and-wife team oversees the day-to-day operation of their 16-acre homestead, which is complete with a climate-controlled indoor facility and an outdoor arena. The well-appointed grounds set the stage for safe horseback-riding lessons for students of all ability levels, comprised of training regimens tailored to each rider.

  • Big Air Aviation
    Whether Big Air Aviation's students are first-time fliers or seasoned jumbo-jet pilots, they all start in the same spot: the passenger seat of Cessna 152 Sparrowhawk. Starting off behind the yoke of the small, light aircraft presents a completely different flying experience from a 747 at an airport. “A commercial jet is like a cattle prod,” says Rob Craig, the founder of Big Air Aviation. “But this thing—you can go wherever you want to go.” Once student and teacher have ascended into the clouds, the student gets the chance to chart an individual course over the green foothills of Rutherford County, speeding over treetops or slowing down to high-five hot air balloon captains. Rob says introductory lessons are brief: an overview of measurement instruments, controls, and rotor petals is enough to equip students for a brief flight. It’s this accessibility that proves the Cessna 152 Sparrowhawk’s biggest draw, and over the years, Rob has watched many of his former students transform what began as a hobby into a full-time career.

  • Creek Golf Club
    Golfers traversing Creek Golf Club's 6,625-yard course enjoy plateaued tee boxes and fairways lined with mature trees. The 18-hole course showcases smooth, diamond Zoysia grass greens that tightly swathe the terrain's parkland-style contours like skinny jeans on the Jolly Green Giant's hips. Golf balls fall like hail from the skies above the Club's driving range, where synthetic mats facilitate practice during inclement weather and grass tees provide a natural lie for swing rehearsals. The range serves as the classroom for lessons with PGA professional Mike Byce, who assists those looking to add distance to their drives or transition from a conventional putter to a belly putter or a sawed-off curtain rod. After a day at the links, guests can refuel at the Club's bar and grill, which serves burgers, salads, cold-cut sandwiches, and other classic eats.
