Runners embarking on the Honky Tonk Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K won't need headphones to hear twangy country tunes. That’s because the hilly Wisconsin Dells course features live bands and DJs along the route to keep participants energized as they race toward the finish line. The party-like atmosphere doesn’t end with the race, as a full-blown celebration complete with food, beer, and line dancing awaits runners and their family and friends. Aside from age-group awards for the top three males and females in each race, finish-line gifts include a Honky Tonk cowboy hat and goodie bag for all participants, a finisher-medal buckle for marathoners and half marathoners, and an ice bath for those who decided to pogo stick the entire 26.2 miles. The Honky Tonk marathon and half-marathon course is USA Track & Field certified and is also a Boston Marathon qualifier.

Rink Side Family Entertainment Center & Ice Arena features activities and amenities for visitors of all ages. The center's regulation-sized ice rink serves many purposes throughout the year. Public-skate times are offered every day, allowing guests to escape the summertime heat or reconnect with the snowman they've been hiding since winter. Additionally, the rink's staff hosts figure-skating lessons and organizes hockey leagues for adults and children seeking casual or competitive play. In between laps around the ice, Rink Side's visitors can take advantage of the facility's other family-friendly pursuits. The 18-hole, black-lit miniature-golf course embraces a nautical theme, complete with sculptures of exotic sea creatures and spiderwebbing coral growths. Hundreds of games fill the arcade space, tempting passersby to test their hand-eye coordination or win tickets that can be redeemed for prizes. For an adrenaline-boosting experience, the entertainment center also features a laser-tag arena. As many as 20 participants can spend seven minutes dodging behind the arena's towering, neon-banded columns and tagging opponents before regrouping with friends and comparing scores. Rink Side even includes a small caf? where visitors can recharge. The facility also creates lifelong memories with family and friends through its private party and event services.

All instructional programs at Lance Williamson Stables adhere to a few overarching pursuits. These include commitments to proper technique, lots of practice repetitions, and thorough enjoyment of riding as a sport. Founder Lance and his colleague, Jennifer Crow, open their lessons to riders of all ages and abilities. Conducted in private and semi-private formats, lessons take place inside an outdoor ring or an indoor arena, where a viewing deck invites spectators to watch the rider's improvement and try to teach horses how to start a full arena wave.

This is not your grandma's laser tag. Or maybe it is, if your grandmother was recently trained by the US military or the FBI. Those institutions train operatives much the same way Tactical Combat Laser Tag entertains civilians?with rifle-like laser guns and a dimly lit, camouflage-walled maze. The resulting hijinks blend the thrill of first-person shooter video games like Call of Duty with the aerobic workout of a high-octane game of paintball.

It's already easy to get lost in the mall. Nestled among those labyrinthine stores and food courts, however, Amazing Mirror Maze ups the ante with a 1,800-square-foot stretch of wall-to-wall reflective surfaces. Aglow in neon hues, the maze is filled with seemingly endless corridors that each appear to snake toward the exit. Entrants must navigate their way past the inestimable reflections without getting distracted by their own winning smile.

Stay 2 Play’s 2,500-square-foot play town miniaturizes a real city center, recreating such locales as the post office, grocery store, and fire station. At each spot, kids’ imaginations have free rein to dream up games and imitate their elders as they take the theatre stage as a ballerina or upsell their peers at the fix-it shop. An adjacent café houses parents and caregivers who can sip coffee or nibble snacks while their kids have fun.
