  • Sylvan Lanes Bowling Center
    The clattering symphony of fallen pins plays on Sylvan Lanes Bowling Center’s 12 gleaming lanes, where competitors hurl resin-based orbs. Here, strike forces assemble for 10-frame mayhem, one-upping one another with stunning spare pickups and graceful pirouettes enabled by their supple-soled rental shoes. On their quest to roll the elusive 300, bowlers can sustain themselves with selections from the menu, such as burgers topped with blue cheese or pizzas adorned with barbecue sauce and chicken. Throughout the alley, plush leather sofas beckon bowlers, and a full-service bar lined with flat-screen TVs keeps guests abreast of contemporaneous sporting events. Sylvan Lanes also has a private event room that holds over 100 people and can be used for just about any event including birthday parties, family reunions, and showers.

Through Dr. Allen's mastery of the power of suggestion, volunteers and audience members alike learn how to face down fears and unlock the hidden potential deep within their own brains or untapped spirit animals.

  • Erebus
    From dinosaurs to demons and zombies, humans have conjured nightmares from plenty of terrifying monsters across the centuries. Within the four-story Erebus—the haunted house that doubles as mad scientist Dr. J Colbert's deadly time machine—all those frightening sights lurk beneath one roof. Setting "a high bar for Halloween entertainment," raves The Huffington Post, the former Guinness record holder for largest walk-through haunted attraction now encompasses a trail more than half a mile long. The house's ghoulish inhabitants don't keep to themselves—mutant gorillas grab legs, corpses fly from caskets, and creatures infest a muddy swamp that visitors must trudge through. For Erebus' highpoint of horror, more than 10,000 objects cover unlucky guests who step inside the aptly named Buried Alive room. As The Macomb Daily reports, the house's 48 "time slice" cameras simultaneously snap 180-degree pictures of patrons' terrified reactions, as well as creepy clowns photobombing from every angle.

  • The Liberty Bar
    A spiked, oxidized green crown juts into the air above The Liberty Bar, wherein diverse revelers can share laughs over beers and snack on burgers and paninis. A list of over fifty brews complements refined pub dishes, such as the bruschetta burger, goat chevre and walnut baguette sandwiches, or plates of cheese, olives, or charcuterie. Regulars flock to the Liberty for karaoke, euchre night, or special live entertainment events, where dancers dress as sexy cowboys, sexy firemen, or sexy tax collectors.
