At Gentle Breeze Hot Air Balloon Co., a team of commercially rated, FAA-certified pilots whisk passengers skyward on journeys over southern Ohio and northern Kentucky. One-hour flights take off from Warren County Airport and travel as high as to 2,000 feet, where visitors can take in panoramic views and snap pictures. Retrieval crews track each trek from the ground and transport guests back to their meeting location.
Along with standard flights, Gentle Breeze’s team hosts specialties such as private couples flights followed by champagne toasts, Hummer or Escalade limo rides to launch sites, and voyages over Cincinnati and Dayton’s metro areas. The captains also lead balloon rides over passengers’ houses and the homes of their enemies, and enliven soirees with brief sightseeing rides that reach 100 feet.
Knickerbocker Gallery is a family-owned showroom whose copious inventory of furniture and home-decorating accessories has been used to furnish upscale home showcases such as Homearama. Empty space and wall safes containing rare sandwiches can be covered with framed prints ($49–$389) displaying such artful imagery as cups of espresso ($49), sun-dappled wine fields ($63), and reclining nudes of famous yetis (bidding starts at $500,000). Table lamps (starting at $29) and buffet lamps (starting at $59) will bring less spooky luminescence into any enclosure than a common candelabra. Fouled fowls and mud-wrestling squirrels, meanwhile, can wash up in an exquisite iron birdbath ($49). The Knickerbocker showroom also features a large variety of resplendent woodcraft dining room, office, and bedroom pieces.

Surge through the misty haze and fast-flashing lights of Lazer Kraze's multilevel arena as bumping bass lines mimic the sounds of futuristic bird calls. Rain ray-gun beams from an upper tier, earn a few power-ups, and then storm an opponent’s base to serve them a game-changing court summons. With numerous taggers traversing the arena, there’s no shortage of ducks on the darkened pond. After each game's dramatic conclusion, you and fellow taggers can scope out the real-time scoreboard for accuracy rankings and more. Cool down from hectic radio-wave-hurling action with additional fun-factory attractions (not included in this Groupon) such as arcade games, video-game tournaments, and laser-baked pizzas sliced generously by laser-wielding surgeons.
