The Midwest Rock-n-Roll Express smuggles arena legends and Midwestern heroes Styx, REO Speedwagon, and Ted Nugent onto the mammoth stage of State Farm Arena with an inestimable cargo of sing-along classics. Styx has sparked the third rail since 1972 with prog-rock sensationalism, bolstering lighter-fluid epics such as "Come Sail Away" and "Babe" with complex riffs from crystalline synthesizers intertwined with power-chord crescendos and noodling from guitar giant Tommy Shaw. With founding frontman and falsetto specialist Kevin Cronin at the helm, fellow Prairie State juggernaut REO Speedwagon fills the stage with passionate chartbusters that made waterbed salesmen rich, from romantic ballads such as “Keep On Loving You" to the spurned-lover kiss-off "Take It on the Run." Kicking off the show, "Motor City Madman" and expert game hunter Ted Nugent revs his buzzsaw guitar through classics such as "Cat Scratch Fever" and "Stranglehold," all while protecting the audience from wild boars.

In addition to re-creating traditional recipes from across the border, Costa Messa Restaurant's chefs occasionally inject a bit of American flair into their menu of Mexican home cooking. This leads to time-honored classics?including chicken enchiladas topped with mole sauce and queso fresco and crispy flautas stuffed with shredded beef?appearing alongside Tex-Mex dishes, such as chalupas, rice, and beans served in the shape of a Longhorn.
Ever since originally opening in 2002, the restaurant has remained unwaveringly devoted to these distinctive flavors, adding spicy chipotle sauce to chicken fajitas, loading corn or flour tortillas with everything from pork to sirloin, and serving whole, ranchero-style red snappers. As a demonstration of its support for the community, Costa Messa Restaurant spends Mondays donating 10% of the proceeds from diners' checks to various charities.

With a huge array of go-karts, mini-golf, bumper boats, arcade games, and birthday parties, it seems the only thing you can't do at the Zone Action Park is get bored. In the Strike Zone baseball enthusiasts can practice their swing in the batting cages, the Speed Zone allows drivers to blast around the course in a single or double go-kart, and in the Splash Zone, they practice nautical combat with bumper-to-bumper thrills. After all that excitement, pizza, wings, chili cheese dogs, and Frito pie help drivers refuel, which contrary to some beliefs, is not the same way go-karts refuel.
