Any veteran of the first-person shooter genre of video games knows that half the fun lies not only in blasting away at opponents, but also in customizing your loadout, memorizing level layout, and ultimately mastering team tactics. The creators of World Extreme aim to bring this experience to life, packing their 10,000-square-foot arena with dense urban-style terrain. They arm players with their custom radio-frequency-style weaponry, in the shape of M4s, MP5s, or AK-47s. They program each weapon to simulate specific circumstances, from free-for-all battles to team bomb-setting exercises. Unlike at most laser-tag arenas, when a well-placed shot knocks a player out of the game, they must scour the field for a respawn box to reenter play, adding extra stakes to the contest.

Of the 12 music teachers at Barker's Music, most have taught there for more than 18 years. So all of the instructors have plenty of experience teaching their chosen instrument. Music lessons cover piano, guitar and bass, violin, drums, harmonica, and voice. But the staff members also demonstrate their musical expertise in other ways, including tuning pianos and repairing guitars. And party hosts can call upon the Kyle Barker Band, which plays events ranging from birthdays to going-away parties for your noise-sensitive neighbors.
