When the macabre minds behind Chambers of Fear opened their first haunt more than 20 years ago, their bone-chilling scares filled only a three-car garage. Over the years, though, the attractions have grown to encompass everything from haunted corn mazes and scream cams to infinitely long algebra tests. These days, the experience stretches more than 25,000 square feet, with high-tech animatronics, creative scares, and traditional maniacs scattered among three haunted houses: Scary Tales, Darkness: Industrial Nightmare, and Chambers of Fear. Including "some of the best scares in the industry," according to Ed Edmunds of Travel Channel's Making Monsters, the sprawling spookfest startles with bloodied ghouls and manifest phobias alike.

Designed by golf great Arnold Palmer, The Legend at Arrowhead's 18-hole, par-72 course connects across 7,005 yards of blended bermuda and rye grasses. As golfers move across the short-grass corridors, mature palm trees and deep bunkers loom on the periphery along with six ponds that will test players' accuracy and ability to keep thirsty sand wedges from straying to the water's edge. Before taking to the first tee, golfers can warm up at the club's driving range, which gives them a feel for the turf they will encounter on the course with all-grass hitting areas. Stationed beside the course, the Legend Lakeside Grill remains open until dusk, offering a convenient place for golfers to unwind after a round or see how quickly they can flip through every single channel on the restaurant's three televisions.
