  • Curves
    With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic-resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine-maneuvering and your muscle-making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

  • The Shadow's Edge Haunted House
    It's an unmistakable sound?and one that sends terror right down your spine. Nearby, someone has just fired up a chainsaw. Could it be that they're just cutting up some firewood, or a really big birthday cake? That's unlikely, given that you're inside The Shadow's Edge, a notoriously haunted house that's struck fear into the community each fall for well over a decade. Different scares wait around every corner: a deranged clown, an axe-wielding psychopath, or any number of other terrors designed to push your mental limits.

  • Pump It Up - Omaha
    Though its name implies a focus on inflatable attractions, the all-ages indoor playground at Pump It Up of Omaha also gets kids active on an 18-foot rock-climbing wall and building with huge imagination blocks. These attractions stand among a sea of air-filled slides and climbing structures, some designed by members of the management team. The bounce castles propel jumpers into the air; and the Chaos obstacle course lets racers run side-by-side or practice shaking hands while walking. The playground also holds special programs such as day camps for young and medium-young children, private birthday parties, and field trips. Many of Pump It Up's staffers are university students working toward education degrees; they often organize contests and games, and supervise visitors while playing on the same level as their smaller guests.

  • Body Masters, Inc.
    Body Masters, Inc. was co-named the city's Best Personal Training Facility by readers of Omaha Magazine in 2014. Part of the credit goes to the studio's team of certified personal trainers, who preach accountability and devise workouts to match any number of fitness goals. But some credit should also go to the facility itself. Furnished with an array of top-of-the-line fitness equipment, the studio offers no shortage of workout possibilities. There are truck tires to hurl, racks of weights to lift, and a plot of artificial turf studded with dandelions that need pulling.
