Each GolfTec swing evaluation places client skills under the analytical eyes of a certified pro and high-tech monitors, conspiring to pinpoint bad habits and help pupils develop sound technique. From the comfort of one of the Uptown studio's climate-controlled hitting bays, players showcase their current swings while discussing on-course goals and grievances with their coach, who listens with the care of a gardener whose tomato tree is finally talking back. Additionally, each beautiful power draw or homely snap-hook gets broken down by GolfTec's patented golf-lesson technology, which mobilizes a futuristic vanguard of motion sensors, launch monitors, and high-definition digital video to provide precise swing data and inform a tailored lesson plan. Club-wielders depart their sessions with hard-won wisdom on how to improve ball-striking fundamentals, lower scores, and domesticate golf carts.
For nearly 30 years, Sluggers has given countless children and adults an arena in which to practice the universal pastime of hitting a ball with a stick. After fastening a complimentary helmet and selecting a bat, players step into outdoor cages where they can hone their skills on pitches of various speeds. Players can purchase gear onsite or borrow a bat from the center's stash of rental equipment, negating the need to whittle down a bat from one of their bedposts.
This fun center offers a world of excitement for the whole family, with an arsenal of arcade games, appetite-pleasers, and other activities awaiting all guests.

If 90 minutes of arcade games has helped you realize computers' dominance over humanity, your 200 prize tickets will improve your mood, since they're prime currency for obtaining neon erasers, alien rubber finger puppets, and VHS copies of Eraser.
The instructors at Deep Blue Scuba teach aquatic proficiency through the rigorous and comprehensive ANDI certification system. ANDI certification imparts pupils with the skills necessary to dive self-sufficiently or with companions, and trains students via pool sessions and open-water dives set in the crystalline Lake Travis. After mastering descent and ascent techniques, students can expand their knowledge base through a slew of specialty courses including underwater navigation, night diving, and wreck diving. Scuba instructors map out the best local dive locations and host periodic Discover Scuba outings where divers sample new gear and reacquaint themselves with watery skills. The diving enterprise also hosts expeditions to far-away waters, piloting trips that explore Australia and Mexico, and confront the notorious gangs of clownfish that lay claim to the Florida Keys.
