The Mud Dogs 5K/10K series challenges both average runners and dedicated athletes with a classic combination of mud and obstacles. Mud Dogs courses are not for the faint of heart. Participants can expect to face all kinds of challenges, from vertical walls and rope swings to tunnels and net crawls. Racers are greeted at the finish line by soil-kissed faces of their fellow Mud Dogs, as well as the cool liquid embrace of wash-off stations.

When paintballers feel ready for action but aren't sure where they'd like to do battle, they point their browsers to www.paintballpromos.com. There they'll find packages for nearby paintball fields, so they don't have to litter their own backyards with empty oil barrels and fill tiny water balloons with tempera paint. Packages usually include the rental of a marker and mask; paintballs and air fills are an extra charge at the field.

Surrounded by a pastureland of cows, horses, donkeys, and a buffalo, families can bask in the autumn air and the fun afforded by several attractions at The Smith Family Ranch. During the fall season, farmhands turn their acres of corn into a maze, in which guests can challenge their sense of direction and the age-old claim that cornstalks always lean to the west. As ranch guests travel through the maze, others can be entertained with hayrides, pony rides, a pumpkin patch, and a bouncy jumping pillow stationed in the middle of the field. Youngsters can also enjoy trips through a mini maze forged from bales of straw or gaze in awe as ears are launched from the corn cannon, an ancient relic from the days when all warfare ammunition was nutritious.

Helmed by the brother-sister duo of Chanel Bellotto and John Dedes, Skate World's funcentric rollo-dome and family-focused atmosphere have garnered the attention of Lakeland patrons and NBC's Channel 8 News alike. Roller-aficionados and timid trundlers glide along the rink with the zeal of a businessman diving across a conference-room table made of slip 'n slides. Freewheelers can practice time-honored moves, such as shoot-the-duck and the two-arm flail, under the dance-inducing disco ball, flashing colored lights, and pumping tunes. Between rounds of going around, reenergize with a snow cone ($1.25), cotton candy ($2), nachos ($2.50), and more from the fully stocked snack bar (not included in this Groupon).
