A horse trainer and instructor for more than 20 years, Angie Pfeiffer draws on her experiences handling dozens of horse breeds at farms throughout the nation while conducting riding lessons. During one-hour lessons, students don a stylish, ASTM–certified helmet provided by the stable and hop atop one of the experienced lesson horses or ponies. While at the helm of their steed, riders learn everything from basic horse husbandry to advanced riding skills, thereby gaining confidence and denouncing the notion that horseback riding must be done inverted, under the belly, and with a tight grip around the horse.
Through a wide-angle lens, a digital SLR camera in a Valentine Photo Booth snaps shots of revelers, and then develops lab-quality prints in eight seconds. The tasteful black booths, lit by flattering rays from a built-in soft box, come equipped with video capacity and are run with touchscreen controls rather than keys that can only be obtained by chasing down a mischievous leprechaun. Attendants tend to technological responsibilities and keep attendees’ party mojos in full gear throughout the night. The spacious booths can accommodate large groups and patrons in wheelchairs, and their modular setup allows technicians to move them easily, and even set them up in outdoor, outlet-free venues. Hosts can also activate optional greenscreen backgrounds for effects far more advanced than the sketch-artist booths that came before them.
The soaring, off-Broadway musical sensation, based on the Gospel of Matthew, strings together a series of musical parables about the life and times of Jesus Christ. Set to Stephen Schwartz’s modern music with traditional hymnal lyrics, the rousing musical is directed by Regent University’s Department of Theatre chair Eric Harrell and features the dazzling dancing and singing of the university’s student performers.
On your hour-long copiloted flight, leave the small world behind to coast aloft on an adventure of atmospheric exploration. How you use your time is up to you; spend some of the time piloting the mechanical bird or signal your cockpit companion to take over while you enjoy the high-altitude views. With no predetermined flight pattern, choose to fly over the coastline in search of pre-Columbian strip-mall fortifications, or simply breeze through the clouds in pursuit of undiscovered powerup blocks.
