Though Robert Trent Jones himself never stepped foot on Tiffany Greens Golf Club?it opened in 1999, three years after his last course design?his fingerprints are all over the par-72 links. That's because the course was designed by Robert Trent Jones II International, a firm started by the legendary architect's son and the torchbearer of his legacy. In true Jones fashion, the course's zoysia-grass fairways wind through rolling hills and past tree-lined creeks, presenting golfers with numerous opportunities to take calculated risks and show of their mid-range control. As players check off each leg of their round, they can make use of the Prolink GPS yardage and scoring system installed on every cart, which assists in nailing down yardages to the pin and finding the shortest route around a recently crashed UFO.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,977 yards from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Named Best Place for a Kid’s Birthday Party by the Pitch, and recently moved into a new and larger location in Tiffany Springs, Bounce House Moonwalks turns kids loose upon giant inflatables, interactive video games, a toddler area with a tiny roller coaster, and concessions. Parents can spend time using the free WiFi or hop around with their kids in the 24-foot-diameter spaceship that boasts air-filled aliens and a cockpit where kids can pretend they’re in space outrunning other inflatables. After zipping around the imagined universe, sock-clad tots clamber over, under, and through the plush tubes and barriers of the 72-foot obstacle course before cascading down its slide. Over at the Xbox 360 Kinect system, kids play interactive video games in which they use their bodies as controllers. Bounce House Moonwalks also allows families to leave the facility at any point and return within the same day for no additional charge.

At The Bay Water Park, patrons can go surfing in the Midwest. Or at least, simulate the experience. Dubbed The BayRider, the park's surfing simulator allows park visitors to try their hand at surfing or boogie boarding while standing atop a thin sheet of water, instead of a board. There's only one requirement: they must be 48+ inches tall.

There's plenty of classic water park fun to complement the simulator, too. The park boasts three pools, and one, the Leisure Pool, works like a huge, lazy river, complete with rippling waves. That's where swimsuit-clad visitors zoom down two massive, tube-shaped slides. Alternatively, there's a play pool where visitors can swim or play pick-up water basketball, and a family pool: a watery playground complete with a giant dumping bucket.

Bodies turn and twirl in the air, suspended from the rafters with colorful silks. Whether during a performance or class, the staff and students of Voler?Thieves of Flight Aerial Academy inspire awe with aerial dance and acrobatics. The academy?s professional ensemble includes ballet and modern dancers, along with circus artists, all of whom add their skills to lofty choreography on swings, silks, and hoops. The Voler ensemble has also performed at more than 30 notable locations including the Kansas city and Chicago fringe festivals and the Kansas City Renaissance Festival.

The academy?s primary purpose is teaching, of course, and three levels of classes instruct participants on the finer points of contorting on silks and practicing spirals, suspension, and falls.
