Divided between two locations in Manchester and Nashua, Vertical Dreams' 15,000 square feet of simulated mountainside are packed with obstacles and tough sections to challenge climbers of all skill levels. At the Manchester gym, gutted elevator shafts lined with hand grips extend four stories upward, creating 70-foot vertical surfaces. The Nashua location boasts 10,000 square feet of wall space, with textured surfaces that respond realistically to climber's hands and feet and fill their nostrils with simulated rock smells.

Vertical Dreams' staff of veteran climbers teaches students one-on-one or in groups. In beginner lesson packages, instructors show aspiring climbers the figurative and literal ropes involved in belaying, climbing, and knot tying, and the teachers in advanced top-roping and sport-climbing classes push their students' abilities to climb solo or in a lead position.

At each bowling center, balls hurtle down smooth, polished lanes as LCD screens keep track of scores and shimmering party lights illuminate the faces of determined bowlers. After lacing up some slide-enabling shoes and clearing the gutters of deciduous pins, bowlers set their sights on toppling 10-pin clusters. Carpets bedecked with psychedelic swirls lead to shelves stocked with neon-colored balls, which proffer their pin-busting talents to bowlers of various sizes. Fingers can warm up by mashing buttons in an arcade full of entrancing video games or bench-pressing french fries at the onsite grill and pub.

The intimate Headliners Comedy Club at The Gold Room seats guests at private tables to take in the quips of regularly performing comedians.

In the midst of their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest “4 Times the Fun” North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official three-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian. See the arch-nemesis Generals try to keep up as the Harlem hardwood sorcerers evade gravity’s oppressive clutches and court clairvoyants distribute unassailable alley-oops. Youngsters can learn about the benefits of teamwork while laughing along with the jovial jocks as they perform classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti.

KISS, the venerable, salaciously theatrical rock 'n' roll sensation, goads eager audiences into palpable hysteria with its Hottest Show on Earth tour. During its renowned live performances, the phantom-slaying foursome brings head-banging fantasies to life with a flamboyant mix of high-wire pyrotechnics, fist-pumping anthems, bulletproof leather, and gently exfoliating face paint. Tame audience members transform into inspired revelers as Paul Stanley and the Pulitzer Prize–winning Gene Simmons croon and shred through the litany of chart-toppers that made the KISS crew household action figures. Orally discharging a catalog of new and seasoned classics, such as "Detroit Rock City" and "Lick it Up," KISS's syllabus of educational sing-alongs entertain listeners with a heavy dose of heart-pumping guitar riffs and sly lyrical innuendo about table manners.

Q&A with Eric Berger, Development Director

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

We tell the story of America's industrial revolution as it unfolded in Manchester, New Hampshire, which was once home to the largest textile manufacturer in the world. The museum's exhibits and displays are professionally designed and presented. We get positive comments and reviews from our visitors who come from around the United States and the world.

What?s your favorite part of your job?

Being able to share with others American history through the history of Manchester and its wonderful mill buildings, which are truly exceptional.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

The mill buildings in Manchester's Millyard District were all built by the Amoskeag Manufacturing Company over a period of 75 years. The company ensured that all the bricks be a uniform color to give a sense of unity and harmony. The Millyard is on the National Register of Historic Places, as are the nearby still-intact corporate housing clusters built by the company for its workers.
