Thrill-seekers of all ages weave through Golf & Games Family Park?s 40-acre mini metropolis of indoor and outdoor attractions. Scampering legs can dart and dash through the neon-clad, 6,000-square-foot indoor laser-tag arena. A burbling waterfall streams through the park?s 54-hole mini-golf course, hemmed by lush landscaping and statues of various jungle-inhabiting creatures. Bumper boats bob in cerulean waters churned by colliding vessels as they circle a central, life-size elephant statue, and two go-kart courses cater to future and present-day adults. Guests can engage in more conventional contests such as volleyball, basketball, and horseshoes within the bucolic tree lines that frame the open picnic pavilions or hone various swing types at the park?s batting cages, 120-stall driving range, and spacious putting green.

After crossing the footbridge to Mud Island, visitors might momentary believe they've become giants. Within the River Park is a half-mile scale model of the Mississippi River, complete with 20 cities mapped along its edges. Wade along the river to its completion and you'll find yourself in the Gulf of Mexico—an acre-sized wading pool.

Most of the modern world is mapped—GPS devices capably guide people through entire road trips and atlases describe more terrain than most people could cover in an entire lifetime. While it's difficult to reawaken humanity’s sense of surprise and discovery, The Mid-South Maze is up for the challenge. Every year, the maze’s manufacturers spend months carving up their cornfield into clever patterns that, when viewed from the sky, might appear as a famed sports logo or the face of a long-departed pharaoh. On the ground, however, that pattern vanishes, leaving wanderers to use their wits to navigate the arching corn passageways. The Mid-South Maze entertains with more than just its winding labyrinth. On Friday and Saturday nights in October, actors clad as ghostly apparitions haunt the herbaceous hallways of a spooky tractor ride. A giant jumping pillow launches kids skyward and gently cushions their falls, and a corn cannon fires ears of corn at targets up to 100 yards away. Anyone who hits a target wins a prize from one of the maze's sponsors and the right to eat nothing but popcorn balls until Thanksgiving.

Dugout box seats put you close enough to the base-based action to smell the fresh grass and hear a position player wonder if he turned the oven off. Watch the game unfold from a perspective not normally glimpsed on television and appreciate the geometry and sports dynamics as they play out before you and a friend or family member. An affiliate of the St. Louis Cardinals, the Memphis Redbirds were the 2009 PCL champions and are within striking distance of first place in the PCL American North Division, so be prepared for finely tuned minor-league action. With its combination of traditional and contemporary architecture, AutoZone Park is frequently lauded for its charming atmosphere and impressive views from throughout the park, including one of the largest scoreboards in minor-league baseball.
