Rotorzen instills students with the skills and savvy needed to command the open-air cockpit of a powered parachute. Certified instructors nurse knowledge over 60 minutes of pre-flight training, teaching aspiring daredevils how to handle instrumentation and sneak up on cirrus clouds from behind. Students next take to the skies for 30 minutes of turbine-charged cruising as they skim over and sail through the air above the Lansing Municipal Airport. Flight lessons depend upon wind conditions and are offered Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, Saturday evenings, and Sunday mornings. While powered parachutes accommodate only one pilot at a time, individuals can bring along fellow flyers to join in on the acrobatic antics. All flight time can be applied toward FAA sport pilot certification and subsequent opportunities to tickle the moon into sneezing green cheese.

Housing whiz-bang activities sprung to life from the mind of owner and game designer J. Richard Oltmann, Enchanted Castle & Haunted Trails coax thrills from the young and young at heart. As pins are knocked over throughout the 66 mini-bowling lanes and an arcade rings with the peal of 250 games, Enchanted Castle?s 60,000-square-foot space fills with scenes fit for dream-like days of timeless tomfoolery. A laser-tag arena hosts light-based combat, bumper cars clunk together around a giant track, and an indoor go-kart course lets driver reenact the time that the Indianapolis 500 was hosted inside a local gymnasium. In addition to rides and games, kids can bounce around in the Inflatable Kingdom, visit the new Softplay area, or search for treasures in the prize redemption center. Platefuls of wings, pizzas, and sandwiches dot tabletops in the dining area, where visitors can feast in front of karaoke, big-screen TVs, and an animatronics stage show featuring in-house band the Jammin? Jesters.

"In your face, loud, and memorable." In 2013, that's how HauntedIllinois.com summarized Statesville Haunted Prison. When it comes to scaring people, Statesville has upped the ante every year since it opened in 1996, recently increasing the area inside its walls by 20%. It has earned a reputation as one of the top haunted attractions in Chicagoland, racking up rave reviews and awards including "Best Haunted House in Chicagoland" for 11 of the past 14 years by HauntedHouseChicago.com, "Must See Top 25 Haunted Attractions in America" by Haunted Attraction Magazine, and a feature on the Travel Channel?s ?Halloween Craziest? in 2013. Resting in the shadow of the Stateville Maximum Security Prison, Statesville combines cutting-edge effects with extremely detailed setups to create chaos. Inside, visitors creep through a collection of more than 40 horrifying rooms that takes nearly an hour to fully explore. More than 150 characters aggressively berate them every step of the way, conjuring scenes from horror movies or family-vacation slideshows. After escaping the prison, visitors must still make their way through the City of the Dead, a mass grave filled with past inmates who've now risen from the dead. Over the years, Statesville has extended the scares to other on-site attractions, too, including a zombie hunt that arms visitors with paintball guns.
