The 18-hole Rock and Roll Golf course caters to the average golfer with play that allows for some challenge, but mainly encourages all members of the family to enjoy their round without too much frustration. Composed mostly of par 3s, the course plays over fairly level terrain scattered with trees and shrubbery, meaning golfers won’t have to adjust their swings to account for wild fluctuations in elevation or distracting mountain search parties. Rock and Roll Golf keeps all players hydrated with complimentary bottled water. After a round, foursomes and families can stick around and use the free picnic area, which features a propane barbecue grill, volleyball net, and basketball hoop.
Friday and Saturday evenings from sundown to 11:00 p.m., visitors can traverse the cursed trails of Swamp Road to encounter the spectral remains of its permanent residents. Paranormal sightings begin in the parking area and extend through a spirited outdoor romp down a wooded trail, guided by staffers that spook visitors by wearing skeleton costumes and spook each other by talking about their first day of middle school. Daring participants visit the twisted home of a doll maker constructing figurines from unidentified parts, and lumbering shadows of werewolves and swamp creatures lurk in one's peripheral vision. The disturbed ground of a cemetery houses the restless spirits of lost lumberjacks, and a homicidal clown endlessly searches for souls and size 31 shoes.
The Syracuse Chiefs, a AAA affiliate of the Washington Nationals, win the hearts of spectators with heroic baseball antics. This season, first baseman Christopher Marrero boosts the Chiefs with 13 homers, 62 RBIs, and 287 guitar solos over 111 games. On the mound, southpaw Tom Milone has fanned 120 batters over 117 innings, maintaining a 3.62 ERA while keeping visiting teams cool on hot summer days. A $10 concessions credit lets fans grab the likes of nachos ($4) and cool soft drinks ($3 for a small) as they investigate Alliance Bank Stadium, trying out more than 11,000 seats and re-dyeing Girl Scout uniforms by rolling on the field’s fresh green grass.
The Wall's bouldering-only climbing facility beckons visitors to scale simulated peaks with angles of up to 90 degrees. Technicolor foot- and handholds pepper the walls, creating 62 different routes that challenge everyone from beginners to Harvard-educated mountain goats. To help to scale these manmade peaks, staff leads both introductory and intermediate bouldering classes. Additionally, the staff frequently changes routes to keep each climb fresh.
Patrons enter Bronson & Bronson to discover troves of camouflage, clothing, and equipment that helps paintballers and hunters keep their aim steady. Acrylic gladiators can slip a paintball mask ($39+) over their head to guard against enemy ammo or crayons. CO2 tanks ($35) launch colourful salvos, and Broadheads arrow tips ($50) help archers chase bull's eyes. Heads vanish as they don camouflage hats ($25+); full-body ghillie suits ($50+) outfit customers in leafy, plant-like garb so they can finally attend a gala at their local botanical garden. Though not included with today's Groupon, paintball enthusiasts can return with their freshly purchased gear to go to battle on Bronson & Bronson's outdoor fields, which open in April.
