Located on 20 tranquil acres, family-owned Fisherville Farms offers horseback-riding lessons for beginning and intermediate equestrians, ages six and up. Single, private horsecursions are about 60 minutes long and include a crash course in proper grooming and saddling techniques, in addition to riding instruction. Because Fisherville Farms' headed horsemen and women are schooled in both Western and English riding styles, students have the option of learning either as they walk, trot, and gallop over the facility's sprawling trails and rings. Originating in the traditions of Spanish conquistadors, Western riding involves a bigger saddle and one-handed rein technique, whereas English riding traditionally employs a smaller, flatter saddle, horseback tea brewing, and the donning of fashion-forward jodhpurs. As evidence of their commitment to equestrian safety, Fisherville Farms provides riders with helmets and, pending federal approval, full suits of medieval plate armor for biweekly jousting tournaments.
Golf balls have more than 300 yards to soar at Vantage Point Golf Center?s driving range, where golfers hone their swings by taking aim at 10 target greens. The range's bermuda-grass hitting stations emulate golf course conditions, allowing golfers to take divots. The driving range also boasts a putting and chipping green for golfers to work on their short game. Owner and former touring pro Chris Thompson, alongside his wife Brittany, use the range as a venue for private lessons. Chris and Brittany teach all ages and skill levels. An onsite caf? serves light fare and beer. The outdoor sports lighting keeps the range open after sunset for golfers to practice, and a covered pavilion keeps everybody dry in the rain or shaded from the hot sun.
Memphis Elite creates well-rounded athletes prepared for serious competition or casual participation in cheer, dance, and tumbling. Across more than 40,000 square feet of space, the facility features areas dedicated to specific training regimens. In addition to eight full-size cheer floors and a modern dance section with Marley flooring, Memphis Elite features a tumbling area complete with tumble tramps and a sprung floor strip. The center's instructors specialize in teaching students of varying ages and skill levels, covering fundamental dance and cheer techniques. Additionally, the instructors coach Memphis Elite's AllStar Team, which competes at the regional, national, and transdimensional levels.
What kid doesn't dream of owning his or her own playground? David Zorn grew up storming the fields of Paintball Park, falling in love with the game. In college his childhood pastime turned into a semiprofessional career that took him to cities such as Chicago and Miami, where he made his television debut on ESPN's airing of the Campaign Cup tournament. Shortly after college, David jumped at the chance to purchase his old stomping grounds, where, across 18 acres of pigment-spattered fields, shooters settle good-natured scores as a trained staff ensures safety.
Colorful projectiles tear a zipper-like sound through the air across Paintball Park?s seven paintball fields, which have varying themes. In Paintball Canyon, players hunker down alongside a gorge, stashing themselves inside log forts or under bridges. The simulated nuclear-waste site at Ground Zero provides hiding places in the form of stacks of barrels and pipes; Dodge City simulates an Old West town, complete with a saloon and animatronic tumbleweeds; and players can find tournament-style play among the inflated blue obstacles of the airball field. Between games, paintballers refuel at the snack shop or at the grill pits and picnic tables scattered in the courtyard. At annual events, the staff sets up a scenario that spans all seven fields for an all-day game, designed to re-create battles from history, video games, or the time Sun Tzu?s lunch was missing from the fridge.

What makes your business stand out?
The Zombie Paintball Hayride! While we certainly have the Haunted Woods to scare the heeby jeebies out of everyone, our most popular and newest attraction is the Zombie Paintball Hayride. Because the guns are fixed to the trailers we can entertain all ages. We recently had a 3-year-old help us test it out while riding in grandpa's lap. Patrons ride through the haunted woods of Burtons Sugar Farms and the old farm house from 1893.
