At 41, Steve Pratt still hits golf balls past 300 yards without shanks or curves, all thanks to having met a Guinness record holder. His studies under Dr. Mike Austin, inventor of the Mike Austin swing, gave him in-depth knowledge of the physics of a golf swing. Austin’s tutelage also helped him learn how to work with the body's joints to unleash massive drives and melt excess cartilage into moonshine. While his record of a 415-yard drive is a point of pride, he's more passionate about teaching this swing method to his students, and that passion has only increased over his 19-year teaching career.

The ghastly costumes and decorations trimming The Best Halloween Store Ever’s shelves breathe afterlife into the live actors and haunting façades of Danny’s Dungeon. Spooky thespians lurk behind glowing brick-and-mortar walls and wait to tear down the brave fronts of all who pass. Danny's staff can turn on the house lights to show timid youngsters that monsters are merely men in costumes and gargoyles merely shaved kittens. Those who emerge from Danny’s Dungeon—without surrendering to one of many emergency exits—break free into The Best Halloween Store Ever, where they collect a free reward. Before and after romps through the ghostly crypt, guests can join the party outside, munching handheld delights from a food truck and busting moves to a live DJ’s beats, which pulsate like the heart of a nervous traffic light.
