Many symphony orchestras take themselves very seriously. And while Kentucky Symphony Orchestra is consummately professional, they also regale audiences with unconventional performances that may involve silent films, comedians, country bands, and Civil War–battle reenactments, a formula that has worked for the past 21 seasons.
Jump!Zone is an inflatable indoor play center packed with moonwalks, bouncers, and giant slides for children ages 2 to 12. With a pass to six open play sessions, mini-humans can slip on a pair of socks and experience all nine of the facility's bouncy attractions. An 18-foot fire truck makes a great slide and provides an excellent career idea for kids who still haven't decided what they want to be, while the playplace's giant alligator and the Jurassic Adventure Combo help grade-schoolers explore the softer side of everyday predators. Children who prefer stationary entertainment can dominate the air hockey table, leaving their adult counterparts free to recite the periodic table of elements backward in peace.
The Florence Freedom, a professional team of baseballers in the Independent Frontier League, re-create the classic thrill of America’s third-most popular sport, after skeet shooting and spelunking, without all the food fights and explosive bat malfunctions that are all too common at major-league games. With today’s deal, fans get reserved-seat tickets for any home game (a $10 value) all month and enjoy a true gourmet meal consisting of a hot dog, chips, and a drink (a $7 value). Miniature novelty adults, meanwhile, can burn off excess energy with a pass to the KidsZone (a $5 value)—a multicolored playground set complete with a bounce house and other playsets—or spend five Freedom Bucks (a $5 value) as they see fit at the park's concession stands or gift shop, making it far more valuable currency than the one you created by taping your driver's license photo to old Monopoly money.
Step-N-Out Dance Studio brings together a talented and diverse group of independent instructors—each expert in their own mix of dance styles. The team of enthusiastic dance professionals, lead private lessons, group classes, and workshops on three separate, mirror-lined dance floors. Together, they can teach everything from the classic ballroom and Latin dances to the fitness-focused belly dancing, Zumba, and trophy-lifting classes. Classes are foundational with a focus on movement, direction, and basic concepts of partner dancing. From getting one's start in Latin dance with salsa and bachata to basic ballroom, classes have a specific focus on teaching novice dancers steps, timing, and connection to build confidence on the dance floor and, in some cases, prepare students for more advanced training.
A NASCAR racing experience lets racers and passengers feel the rush of flying around the 1.5-mile Kentucky Speedway. During the three-hour solo racing experience, racers meet with the crew chief for comprehensive safety training and instruction before suiting up, warming up, and ground-flying for five clocked minutes around the track. Via two-way in-car radio communication, drivers will be able to stay in touch with their personal racing instructors, who give advice on the best time to pass other cars and how to convert kilometers per hour into jiggowatts. Participants will then be able to commemorate the experience with a souvenir racing license, a graduate certificate, and a 6"x8" photo.
