Winners of the 2010 Southern Professional Hockey League President’s Cup, the Huntsville Havoc face a new season of fast-paced puck-handling and loyally rowdy fans. With a reputation for playing inevitably exciting hockey, center Glenn Detulleo, goalie Dan McWhinney, and the rest of the team use their collective talent to propel the game, rather than resorting to marathon body checks or diabolical mind games. Mezzanine seats give fans a comprehensive view of every smoke-trailed slap shot, pulchritudinous power play, and wild zamboni stampede. Bring a lifelong hockey fan or your second head along for a night of intense fun as you watch the Havoc express-mail presents to the nets of the Surge, Riverhawks, or Ice Bears.

A fleet of 20 go-karts stands ready to hug the turns and gun down the straightaways of a nearly quarter-mile-long track. A fully lit 18-hole mini golf course challenges werewolves building immunity to silver putters, and 30 golf tees equipped with coverings for rainy days or cold weather allow for skill-building practice shots. Batting cages enhance swinging skills with hard- or softballs approaching helmeted craniums at slow, medium, or lightning-fast speeds. The indoor arcade brims with an array of video and redemption games, with nifty prizes awaiting homes behind an overflowing counter.

Dream Adventures USA's guides lead informative, scenic tours down the Cumberland and Tennessee Rivers. Up to three sets of sightseeing eyes can climb aboard each Yamaha 110 jet ski for a river trek. Cumberland River voyages, which cover up to 120 miles, include an exploration of Old Hickory Lake's coves, inlets, and dam before breezing through downtown Nashville and stopping at Rock Harbor for lunch. A sampling of up to 60 miles of the Tennessee River loops around Long Island and gives riders a view of the Alabama state line, which glows like the first down marker used on NFL broadcasts. Both tours begin with a brief safety overview and conclude at the original launch site.
