Controlling your hands when putting a golf ball can be a challenge in and of itself. Try to sink a testy putt after scaling a 24-foot wall, and that challenge takes it to another level. Boulder Creek Amusement Park offers the opportunity to try each. The outdoor fun center boasts an 18-hole mini golf course lined by waterfalls, streams, and greenery. On the same grounds, guests grasp holds as they ascend the climbing wall. For additional tests of hand-eye coordination, an 8-stall batting cage challenges batters with both baseball and slow- and fast-pitch softball deliveries.
At Lincoln?s historic Haymarket, visitors relax with time-honored forms of entertainment, such as taking in a play or browsing the farmer?s market. When the Haymakers brought indoor football back to the city after a seven-year drought, they decided to honor the importance of the Haymarket by naming their team after it. The biggest difference between the two: the Haymakers regale people with high-octane entertainment in the form of bone-crushing tackles and soaring touchdown catches.
Playing as part of the Midwest-based Champions Pro Indoor Football League, the Haymakers gather players from across the country to compete in the league?s fast-paced, eight-on-eight arena style of football. Off the field, the team makes a positive impact in the community by holding youth camps, organizing parties, and constructing human pyramids to cover up unwanted graffiti.

Xtreme Xperience was founded by a pair of car aficionados who understand the thrill of commanding a $253,000 piece of four-wheeled poetry in motion, like the Lamborghini LP560. They know that exaggerating the pronunciation of Porsche is only half as fun as horsewhipping its 530 horsepower from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 3.3 seconds. They realize that the Ferrari F430's supercharged Launch Control console button is too irresistible not to push coming out of every red light and into every dark, quiet, and hopefully vacant train tunnel. The smooth, spaceship-esque aluminum body shell of the Audi R8 makes them appreciate how discreet something like 782 rivets, 382 self-tapping screws, and more than 300 feet of welding can be. The people at Xtreme Xperience love supercars, and they love matchmaking them to other car enthusiasts who live to cruise across the great, oil-stained arteries of the American interstate-highway system.
