Multiple rows of pinball machines manufactured from the early 1960s through today shelter plungers and flippers as they fling the silver spheres toward illumined targets. Entertaining guests between bouts of pinball, air hockey, and abundant arcade classics—such as Centipede, Ms. Pac-Man, and Asteroids —await with flashing lights infused with friendly competition. Klassic Arcade celebrates its impressive stock of more than 100 different varieties of glass-bottled soda pop during its annual Midwest Soda Pop Festival, which combines pop tastings and judging with live music and games. The arcade also spearheads the annual Pinball at the 'Zoo festival, at which attendees can play more than 100 arcade and pinball games for free in between tournaments, auctions, and seminars with the original 8-bit Mario and Luigi. Completing the lineup of exciting diversions is the outdoor M-40 Raceway track, which hosts off-road RC racers.

For proof of how frightening Psycho Ward & Nightmares Haunted House truly is, you need only look at the chicken list. It keeps track of the number of people who couldn't make it through the two eerie indoor/outdoor attractions without high-tailing it to the nearest exit. There were 265 fraidy cats in 2012 alone, although that should come as no surprise, given the property's assortment of ghouls and maniacs.

Inside Psycho Ward, the experiments of the mad Dr. Floyd Cranston are eager to reconnect with other humans after years of unspeakable treatments and surgeries. Meanwhile, in the nearby Nightmares Haunted House, fears come to life in all forms, from demonic clowns to a radio that only plays John Tesh songs. Naturally, it's recommended that only guests 12 and older venture onto the haunted grounds.

Wings Stadium plays host to more than just board-slamming checks during the Kalamazoo Wings' home hockey games. On select days, the 8,023-seat venue opens its frozen confines to amateurs interested in all sorts of winter sports. Skaters of all ages can glide across the smooth ice during open-skating sessions, and members of the Kalamazoo Curling Club practice and face off throughout the fall and winter. On weekend nights, hockey fans can bring their own skates to a K-Wings home game and finish their night skating and checking the ice for lost incisors.

A simple-to-use putting training ring that focuses a golfer's eye on the center 2 inches of a green’s 4.5-inch hole, Shrink2Sink can increase a practiced putter’s accuracy by more than 50 percent. Just as a donut fits snugly to muzzle a python's mouth, the precision-engineered, emerald-colored Shrink2Sink ring fits over any standard putting-green cup, reducing the hole’s dimensions during practice taps so that during real play, golf courses' end zones seem like massive black holes that pull putts inescapably into their event horizons.

Pro Tip: We are a mobile art studio.

My Art on Canvas's instructors don't limit themselves to a single classroom. Instead, they travel to locations where pockets of artistic enthusiasm tend to form—in restaurants, bakeries, museums, and even living rooms. Once they arrive, they demystify the artistic process, teaching adults and kids alike how to re-create a painting brush stroke by brush stroke. One night they might lead students in painting abstract floral designs, and the next they might demonstrate re-creating the silhouette of a moose against a backdrop of night sky. At the end of class, they send students home with their finished masterpiece and new artistic techniques, such as blending color and holding the brush in your hand rather than your teeth.

Slip ‘n’ slides. Mud pits. Tire runs. A tarzan swing. Regardless of whether you choose the 1.5- or 3.5-mile route, the Muddy Patriot has one goal in mind: to get you dirty. With adrenaline pumping and live music from The Bronk Bros. filling the air, racers aged 13 and older take on the Muddy Patriot obstacle course, which is made, like a pig’s-dream montage, almost entirely of mud.

Though it may technically be considered a competition, Muddy Patriot’s founder, Chris Bushart, intended it to be fun, first and foremost. As a veteran of the United States Navy, Bushart’s time spent traversing the globe made him realize how much he loved his country and how much he wanted to give back. The Muddy Patriot not only brings excitement to Michiganders for a day, but also supports local businesses and children’s charities such as Safe Harbor Children’s Advocacy Center.
