The indoor and outdoor attractions at Easy Street Family Fun Center make it their mission to entertain visitors both young and old. Driven to succeed by Honda motors, single and double gasoline-powered go-karts whip around an outdoor track during seven-minute heats, speeding down straightaways, roaring through turns, and dodging spiked tortoise shells. The 18-hole mini golf course draws the eye with creative scenery such as a downed, half-submerged plane, and each hole takes players up hills, around rocks, and over bridges in search of low scores. Inside Easy Street lies an arcade with 60 games and an indoor gym where kids 8 and younger can pretend to be intrepid explorers climbing a mountain made of jungle-gym parts. After fun and games, the snack bar kindly offers to refuel families and friends with pizza, burgers, and high-octane ice cream.
On Wayne's World of Paintball's 60 acres of land, safety-mask-clad players square off in a variety of different games coordinated by trained referees. Strewn about 15 distinct areas of play, multilevel forts, shacks, and abandoned aircrafts provide ample cover from opposing enemies and unwanted kisses blown from fans on the sidelines. Wayne's battlegrounds include open fields, a woodsball area, and a 2-acre post-apocalyptic town replica. Those seeking fast-paced showdowns can also test their reflexes on a full-size speedball playing field. Wayne's World of Paintball is also known for its regularly scheduled, 24-hour scenario games. Between battles, a covered pavilion gives players a place to rest up, and a pro shop provides paint slingers with reloads of air cartridges and hoppers. Patrons must be at least 10 years old to play at Wayne's.
Rainbow's End Golf Club's nine-hole fairway chain rolls across 2,883 yards for a par-36 layout. Rounds begin with a 445-yard par 5, where a drive that bisects the tree-lined corridor should set up a favorable opportunity to glue another birdie-celebrating rhinestone on your putter. A relatively open and player-friendly layout, the bulk of the course's difficulty stems from 50 feet of overall elevation changes, which can set up tricky shots toward downhill or elevated targets. The club also encompasses a driving range and a pro shop that offers golf equipment, apparel, and club repair for shafts snapped in frustration about unfulfilling TV series finales.

As the head trainer of Cactus Jack's Trail Rides, Debbie Zito cares for a fleet of healthy, happy, and well-trained horses, which she also pairs with beginners and experienced riders for leisurely tours. Debbie and her other guides call upon their seasoned riding experiences as they lead visitors throughout the shade-speckled trails of the 110-mile Cross Florida Greenway trail system. While groups ride along, the guides point out historic sites and natural inhabitants, such as great horned owls, red-tailed hawks, coyotes, cardinals, and armadillos. Debbie and her team also offer lessons to increase riders' confidence and help them communicate with horses effectively rather than sending them commands through email.
