Bikram Yoga College of India stretches soul sacks to more lithesome states with a variety of class times. Limb limberers of all yogic abilities will bend, stretch, and cajole muscles and tendons with 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, all within the melty confines of a 105-degree room. The poses oxygenate blood, restore normal function to organs, and clear bodies of subdermal strontium deposits, whereas the high heat improves muscle strength, reorganizes disorderly lipids, and keeps tickers thoroughly tocking for a high-impact cardio workout. The experienced staff shepherds students through the postures, providing guidance for each tree, eagle, and angry-hall-monitor pose. Body benders should bring a mat, towel, and bottle of water to each stretching session.
As summer turns to fall and the barbecue grills begin their migration south, The Patch at The Farm welcomes visitors to celebrate the dawning of the harvest season across its 30 acres. Taking up 11 of those acres, the corn maze's twists and turns test visitors' problem-solving skills. Bright-orange pumpkins pepper a 4-acre patch, patiently awaiting families to bring them home, where they'll fully blossom into pies or grinning jack-o'-lanterns. Over in the petting zoo, goats, chickens, and mini-donkeys entertain wee ones with rides and their ability to speak five languages. Other attractions include a hayride to Lanesfield Museum, ziplining, pumpkin bowling, a pedal track, and bounce houses.
Sprawled across Black Bob Park’s 80 acres, Blackbob Batting Cages and Miniature Golf enlivens friendly competition with classic outdoor pastimes. In the batting cages, sluggers-in-training swing at pitches thrown at 35–70 miles per hour, while pintsize to professional putters head to the 18-hole mini-golf course to take on its Lilliputian fairways and holes that act as portals to hobbit kingdoms. Black Bob Park also sports a playground, picnic areas, a public swimming pool, and a lighted basketball court.

Kids and parents zoom around the red-walled rink of Skate Zone, which provides a fun, safe atmosphere where children aged 3–12 can learn to skate. The facility's training walkers and specially designed tile floors help little ones to gain their skate-legs and minimize the pain of tumbles without the superhero-angering effects of donning an inflatable suit. Groupon customers will also receive 10% off skating lessons for toddlers and beginners. Adjacent to the rink lies a game room stuffed with token-operated amusements such as video games, dance machines, and alley bowlers. The fun center also helps kids to celebrate the day of their wrapping-paper windfalls with birthday packages, including skating-rink games and activities.
