At the Adsmore House & Gardens, the story of one family has continued uninterrupted for more than 100 years. The old house and grounds, meticulously restored to their Golden Age glory, serve as a stage of sorts, where visitors can interact with chapters in the history of the Smith-Garrett family. They can relive youngest daughter Selina's wedding to Dr. John Osborne, and see the bride and matron of honor's dresses being readied in an upstairs bedroom. Or they can mark daughter Katharine's birthday by learning how a 6-year-old's birthday would have been celebrated in 1907. The exhibits provide a glimpse into the day-to-day life in another era, rich with stories of trials, tribulations, and triumphs.
Boasting 24 fully equipped lanes, Bowlodrome celebrates its 60th year of uniting friends, families, and amiable strangers in a shared passion for hurling dense plastic orbs into precisely configured wooden obelisks. With two hours of alley time (up to a $20/hour value), up to four sphere-slingers have ample opportunity to rehearse artful approaches, hone fluid follow-throughs, and master delivering the ball down the lane in fewer than six bounces. Because nimble footwork accounts for 87% of proper pin-pummeling technique, Bowlodrome outfits patrons in chic shoes (a $2.50 value/pair) expertly cobbled by retired professional bowlers.
Neon lights create an eerie atmosphere at The Ozone Laser Tag. The 4,000-square-foot arena hides warriors firing laser weapons back and forth, striking opponents in an all-out spree. In addition to high-energy laser battles, the center provides arcade games and snacks to help fighters rejuvenate, and handicap-accessible play helps get everyone involved in the fun.
