Q&A with Christopher Misun, Marketing Director

Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?

We offer the only outdoor laser-tag experience in Mississippi. The course is tucked away in a small wooded space near our go-kart area and immerses the customers in a great woodland adventure game. Along with that course, players can also participate in Airsoft matches.

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

Our birthday parties give groups more options than any other facility in a 50-mile radius. Between mini golf, go-karts, and outdoor laser tag, we have tons of options for kids to participate in on top of using the game money they receive to play in the arcade. We have private rooms for cake and pizza, and our staff is very helpful in providing the parents with whatever they need to help make it a special day for the birthday boy or girl.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?

I have really enjoyed the variety that we provide. No one else can offer as many options for games and activities as we can. The Park at North Hills is a one-stop shop for the entire family because we offer so much that appeals to each age group.

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

For being a relatively small area, we have packed as much as possible into that space. We have countless outdoor activities including mini-golf, batting cages for baseball and softball, go-karts, outdoor laser tag and Airsoft. Inside, we feature party rooms, arcade games, redemption games, and pool tables. Our facility offers a lot of bang for the space.

Tremendous trees with 12-foot-wide trunks towered a hundred feet into the sky 36 million years ago, dominating the landscape for centuries before succumbing to the passage of time. An ancient river carried them halfway across the continent and deposited them in a logjam in Mississippi, where they slowly turned to stone. Though the river is long gone, the site thrives today as registered national landmark. The Mississippi Petrified Forest showcases the lifecycle of these primordial trees turned petrified logs.

A shady six-block nature trail winds around the site and ends at an earth-science museum, which contains a collection of dinosaur footprints, whale bones, and a prehistoric camel. Patrons can also screen rocky samples in a water flume for rough gemstones that they can take home or use to save their neighborhood from land developers.

Inside Different Strokes Art Studio, pristine white ceramic bisques fill the cubbies that line one wall, taking all kinds of shapes—from giant vases to wizard hats. Artists of all ages bend to their work at the studio’s tables, dabbling colored glazes onto the matte clay and picking colors and brushes from the center of the table as they go, creating keepsakes such as personalized dinner platters for holidays or ornaments with their child's hand print painted on. When customers are done bedecking their pieces, the shop’s assistants glaze and fire each one, turning items such as plates, bowls, and dip platters instantly food safe and ready to hang on the wall or hold beautifully presented piles of marshmallow fluff.

At The Clay Canvas's child-friendly contemporary ceramics studio, customers of all crafting levels dabble in DIY activities ranging from pottery painting to hand-building moist-clay pieces. Children's summer camps, workshops, and other classes help youngsters take steps toward skilled painting or overcoming a fear of sitting at a potter's wheel that may be surrounded by friendly ghosts. The Clay Canvas also engages with the local artist community by selling finished pieces at the studio.

Every day of the week, Indian Lanes rumbles with activity as bowlers of all ages rack up points on the facility's 16 lanes. A smoke- and alcohol-free alley, Indian Lanes strives to create a suitable environment for every guest, from children and sports teams to church groups and individuals with special needs. In between frames, the action moves away from the pins and toward the snack bar, where popcorn, nachos, and frozen drinks await, or the arcade, which houses video games, pool tables, and air hockey. For bigger groups, the facility features two large party rooms that open for birthday parties, business ventures, and union meetings for striking pins.
