When rock-climbing couple Christy and Scott Thrift got engaged, Christy was dangling off the side of Stone Mountain. The same adventurous spirit that elevated their engagement informs their married life, which they spend running their wilderness guiding service, Thrifty Adventures. While some of the duo’s trips require previous outdoor experience, most welcome all participants, and range from ice climbing adventures to rock climbing and backpacking trips. Along the way, Scott and Christy teach safety basics, climbing techniques, and strategies for preserving natural surroundings, such as refraining from nibbling on the mountain.

At the Color My Spirit Run, colored powder rains down on participants as they jog toward the finish line, brightening their clothes. The event is more than a run, though—participants also dance to live music, and kids frolic in a bounce house.

Glowing boundary rails line the pitch-black corridors of Lunar Mini Golf's putting surfaces, guiding mini golfers and their orbs across a black-lit dreamscape surrounded by neon flourishes. As players attempt to sink hole-in-ones, the vibrant course thwarts their efforts with topsy-turvy surfaces, jutting ridges, and a gallery of luminous animals and bug-eyed aliens whispering commentary from inside the walls. Guests can become mobile accoutrements in the phosphorescent scenery by snagging necklaces and other glow-in-the-dark knickknacks available for sale, helping players identify opponents' movements and accentuate celebratory dances with glow-stick flair. The course's darkened alleys provide fun, casual outings for players of all abilities, as well as an eclectic venue for the birthday parties of future adults.

FTF Fitness and Self Defense's team of 13 instructors know that most people are fighting something. That something might be a vicious bully, persistent weight gain, or a less tangible entity such as fatigue or non-Euclidian geometry. No matter what it is, they're confident they can help. Their diverse knowledge of fighting techniques stretches around the world, from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to Krav Maga, a self-defense system developed for the Israeli armed forces. In addition to earning belts and certifications in numerous forms of martial arts, the teachers possess years of real-world experience that they use to help others cultivate strength, discipline, and confidence. These goals also inform the studio's Krav Maga classes, which reveal simple self-protection techniques that can be applied if a person is approached by a lone assailant or a nunchuck-wielding octopus.

In addition to imparting defense strategies to students aged 4 and older, the team teaches SPARology, a training program that blends muay thai, boxing, and wrestling into a fun-and-functional workout. Classes and one-on-one training take place in a gym equipped with full-size heavy bags, Lifeline power jumpers, kettlebells, battling ropes, and monkey bars.

The thunder of rolling bowling balls echoes throughout George Pappas' Liberty Lanes, as games commence on its 32 polished lanes. Gutter bumpers and a snack bar are just a few of the amenities at this family-friendly alley, which specializes in all-ages league bowling. Games and decor?such as a giant inflatable bowling pin?inject a bit of lighthearted fun into birthdays and corporate events, but the mood really changes during cosmic bowling, when an otherworldly blue glow bathes the alley and the sound of crashing pins is softened by upbeat tunes.
