When weather conditions prevent them from going aloft, students and pilots alike can make use of the Redbird flight simulator to practice takeoff and landing techniques while making powerful commands into the palms of their hand.
At Pot-Luck, it's true that patrons paint their own pottery—but that only skims the surface of what's really going on. Guests pick out and paint their own ceramic plates, mugs, and wizard figurines. The eclectic array of glazes, paints, and idea books complement their vast selection of ceramic pieces, and the flat studio fee covers an entire day of wandering around the studio's well-stocked confines. When visitors are finished, the team fires their handiwork in the on-site kilns, transforming them from raw ceramic into pieces safe for a dishwasher, microwave, oven, or flaming cupboard.

Located in Sears stores or at adjacent offices, Sears Optical's independent optometrists screen peepers to determine accurate prescriptions and diagnose any health problems. As doctors position a refractive device over the eyes, flipping through lenses of varying strengths, patients describe the level of clarity with which they can see the purple zebra dancing in the far corner. In addition to the prescriptive exam, doctors may use eye drops to dilate the pupil to scrutinize the retina.
