Remember the Alamo. In their own unique way, the game designers at Splat Attack Paintball honor that charge with a scenario based around the legendary battle. The Alamo is one of Splat Attack's 13 games, which range from classics such as capture the flag to mutants, a riff on hide-and-seek where players search for their "contaminated" foes. Rounds take place across Splat Attack's more than 12 acres, which encompass landscapes both large and small—not to mention open and dense. Giant wooden spools and barrels populate the more traditional, speedball-style fields, while woodland surroundings include trenches and confined trailers, where players can take cover behind walls and napping movie stars.

Swiss army knives are famed for the many vital tools hidden in the nooks and crannies of their surprisingly small exterior; Star Performance Complex takes a similar approach to educating kids in fitness.

They also provide day and night care that combines structured activity with open play in their fun gyms, which feature not only gymnastics equipment but inflatable play houses. Other teachers focus on team sports, training kids to work together in softball, soccer, and cheer. All of this – excepting the swim lessons – takes place in their single, colorful facility full of squeaky hardwood, soft mats, and all the equipment a kids needs to build a strong body.

All manner of monsters prowl the halls of the Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House. Sadistic clowns smile from shadowed corners, herding visitors into a blood-spattered room where a ghoul in a straitjacket waits. Strobe lights and fog convince the senses that they've entered an otherworldly dimension or a very dusty camera, concealing the ghastly robotics and props lurking around each bend?such as a leering, demonic child named Hex. Though the attraction seeks to terrify, its ultimate goal is far more altruistic: ticket profits go to the Sioux Falls Jaycees, a community-service group whose volunteers don masks and gallons of fake blood to staff the entire house.
