The family-owned Jump N Jungle entertains kids at its 10,500-square-foot Jump N Jungle. Along with a selection of slides, the climate-controlled play area enthralls youngsters with climbing structures, an inflatable shaped like a playful tiger lying on its back, and a bounce castle where kids learn to leap and play the lute simultaneously. In the summer, Jump N Jungle also hosts Summer camps where attendees play games, enjoy bounce time, and work on crafts and coloring projects.

Classes take place on a private, outdoor range about 35 miles west of Lubbock.
Students are required to bring their own handguns and ammunition. A limited amount of ear and eye protection is available to borrow.
Owner James Fortner and his certified staff at Elite Lubbock Firearms Training don't just want students to pass the exam that qualifies you to apply for a concealed-handgun license, they want pupils to do so with flying colors. With the goal of producing responsible gun owners, they emphasize safety during concealed-handgun classes. They also teach an NRA pistol class for students less familiar with handguns. And though the subject matter may be serious, each class is infused with a dose of lightheartedness, as the experienced team aims to keep students' attention with an upbeat, fun atmosphere.
A maniacal laugh echoes throughout a dark room. Seconds later a woman screams. Perhaps a demented clown has taken another victim or a group of crazed inmates has finally seized the asylum. It could be anything at Halls of Horror, where psychotic killers and flesh-hungry zombies roam both indoors and out in search of unsuspecting victims. The park encompasses more than 20,000 square feet of terrors and spans four attractions—Halls of Horror, Psych-O-Ward, Trenches of Hell, and Dead Man Hanging—that are guarded by a different scare, from crazed butchers chopping something other than the typical meat to mad doctors performing experiments and unnecessary strep tests. Lucky for thrill seekers, all players are either portrayed by animatronics—some of which tower over visitors at 20 feet tall—or actors who are specifically instructed not to touch customers.
The 70th annual ABC Rodeo stampedes into Lubbock City Bank Coliseum prepared to kick up dirt and round up funds for local charities. Each spring, fans descend upon Lubbock for the multiday competition, which showcases some of the PRCA's most accomplished cowboys. As attendees saddle general-admission seats and rodeo clowns re-stuff their pockets with ham, competitors will battle spur-to-spur in a variety of events such as bull riding, bareback riding, steer wrestling, and team roping. The weekend's festivities uphold Lubbock's longstanding tradition of improving the community through sporting events, and for the 70th straight year, Beutler and Son Rodeo Company elevates the event's standards with quality livestock and broncos that are former Olympic champions in the high jump.
Owners Jeff and Michelle Dow met at the University of Iowa on athletic scholarships for gymnastics. After decorated careers that included spots on the U.S. Nationals team, the duo moved to Lubbock and founded Tega Kid's Superplex in 1995. Assisted by a skilled staff, they entertain and educate kids in teamwork and the athletic arts during sports programs, camps, and events. Though planted in gymnastics classes and fertilized with hand-grip chalk, the 18,000-square-foot facility has blossomed into a diverse space that teaches noncompetitive dance, cheerleading, tumbling, and swimming lessons that follow the USAG Junior Olympic Program's curriculum. The facility also houses a preschool, afterschool activities, and summer events and is a licensed provider of Motion Evolution, an interactive fitness program for kids.
