A holiday tradition and celebrated ballet, The Nutcracker entrances audiences with stunning choreography, elaborate sets, and a memorable score composed by classical-music legend Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. During his timeless tale of love and walnuts adorned with purple hearts, the Covington Regional Ballet brings to life the story of Clara as she follows her beloved wooden soldier from the Land of Snow into the Land of Sweets for a riveting yuletide adventure. Waltzing snowflakes, marching toy soldiers, and mischievous mice pirouette around a glowing Christmas tree, interacting with fellow dancers through exaggerated facial expressions, fluid dance moves, and two cans connected by a ribbon from a ballet slipper.
Psychedelic lighting, clouds of fog, and thumping beats fill Laser Tag of Buford’s 7,000-square-foot, two-level arena.

Throughout each bout, computerized weapons and sound system¬–equipped vests help participants stay abreast of their score, while a large scoreboard updates sideline observers and astronauts watching from space. After their game, guests can explore the facility’s remaining 4,000 square feet, which house an arcade with more than 20 games and a concession stand stocked with snacks and drinks.
