Terrapin Adventures never fails to live up to its name—even their swing set gets the stomach fluttering with excitement. To be fair, though, the swing in question is anything but the traditional apparatus you'd find at a city park. It seats three people and starts its trajectory 40 feet above the ground, generating 2Gs of force as it swishes riders back and forth over the landscape. The park's other attractions are equally exhilarating. On the high ropes course, visitors attached to sturdy safety harnesses cross 18 traverses situated between lofty platforms; some must be tackled via a rickety bridge, while others require leaps of faith. The 43-foot high climbing tower offers 10 routes up and down, including a head-first downward climb over the Rainbow Serpent. Otherwise, the 330-foot-long zipline sends visitors gliding through the treetops at speeds of up to 20 mph, fast enough to beat the USA track team's star squirrel.

The team of trainers and coaches at PowerUP Sports & Training hail from diverse backgrounds such as sports medicine, kinesiology, strength and conditioning, and chiropractic, among others. Pooling their expertise, they're more than qualified to provide sports-specific training as well as general fitness training. This doesn't mean they do everything alone?they're also aided by a 24,000-square foot fitness center. Here, equipment such as a professional-grade artificial turf area and a ricochet-friendly ball wall are the setting for an intensive football-training program, as well as lacrosse. Meanwhile, the member fitness center hosts Power Fit group fitness classes such as boot camp and endurance training that torch calories while building muscle.
When PowerUP Sports & Training's coaches aren't working with clients, the resident scientists take over. An on-site lab is equipped for exercise analysis and optimization, while baseball pitching and golf-swing simulators break down every movement and provide tips for improvement. And once all's said and done, chiropractic and sports massage services help to ease post-workout pain.
Climb up the rigging of a pirate's ship, grapple your way up through a wall-sized game of Tetris, scale the face of Mount Rushmore?and then let gravity gently lower you to the ground. ClimbZone USA's more than 70 whimsical indoor climbs capture the imagination before the ascent even begins, but the big attraction isn't the colorful trees, blocks, and stone-faced presidents. An auto-belay system puts even the youngest climbers in charge of their own journeys upward, carefully lowering them back to earth when they've reached their level. Spirits climb nearly as high as the guests themselves, thanks to the birthday parties, snacks on hand, and endorphins generated from the healthy workout a climb provides.
Golf requires power, precision, and soft touch, and Laurel Golf Center helps players hone all three at one location. Covered hitting stalls facilitate year-round practice at the driving range, where golfers can take aim at six target greens or try to nestle their golf ball inside a passing cloud. Short game practice areas let golfers hone chips, pitches, and shots with awkward lies from a practice bunker. To perfect their feel around the greens, guests can roll through the 18-hole miniature golf course.
