Awash in lighting effects, an 8,000-square-foot rink accommodates roller skaters as they circle the facility to the thumping beat of contemporary pop music. Overhead, a disco ball 3 feet in diameter—featured in the remake of Footloose—further illumines the rink with its sparkling effervescence.
Meanwhile, participants clad in 78 Skate's velcro suit leap toward the velcro wall to see if they'll stick, and more than 30 arcade and redemption games challenge prize-seeking players. Gamesmanship continues at a pair of billiards tables nestled beneath two large screen televisions in the snack bar, which reenergizes customers with tasty treats and beverages. Elsewhere, a full-service skate shop equips patrons with new wheels for blading sessions in their bathtub, and twice weekly Zumba classes, led by a certified instructor, burn calories with exercise moves modeled after salsa dancing.
At both of Oasis Bowling Center's locations, polished lanes stretch from penalty line to pins. A festive soundtrack of strikes, spares, and high-fives fuels the competition as players partake in 10-frame matches to see who can roll the highest score. Two bars—Brucey's Sports Bar and Grill at the Loganville location and Thirsty Turtle Sports Bar and Grill at the Buford location—provide respite from the games with food and drinks. Patrons can gaze toward wall-mounted TVs or settle tiebreakers on the pool tables or in front of dartboards. On their way back to the lanes, bowlers can stop by the pro shops to find a pair of shoes that provide the most traction during celebratory dances.
Once golfers step onto the grounds of Cedar Lake Golf Club, they become sworn enemies with the 166 rolling acres and their crowd of native wet and dry hazards. Among these are two large lakes?including Henderson Lake, which abuts the first fairway?and exposed granite outcroppings, which are something of a course signature. The 17th hole, one of three par 5s on the back nine, is particularly affected by a granite mound that sends shots ricocheting. Meanwhile, the course's namesake cedar trees trace the fairways, lending an outdoorsy mystique to every vantage point on the course.
