Merging golf clubs, gyms, and pools for their exclusive members, GreatLife Golf & Fitness’s collective includes 13 diverse golf courses throughout Kansas and Missouri, from the National Audubon Society–certified River Oaks in Grandview, Missouri, to the 1920-built The Oaks in Leavenworth. Golfers fearing course commitment can opt to play one 18-hole game on any of the well-manicured courses, all a prime lot for testing out swings or attempting a more avant-garde drop-kick method. Covering greens fees for four and two carts (up to $32/person) for one day, quartets can cruise around their chosen orb obstacle anytime during the weekday, while weekend play is limited to after 11 a.m.
The Moxie is a central hub for independent and classic cinema, specializing in celluloid of the funky, offbeat, and arty distinctions. The diverse film list includes thought-provoking flicks that span the genres and ages, with everything from Rubber—a recently screened modern flick about a villainous tire—to vintage film noirs such as Humphrey Bogart's The Big Sleep (showing Saturday, May 14), to the all-penguin remake of Citizen Kane (tickets up to an $8 value each). The deal’s combo package also delivers cinematic sustenance via two fountain soft drinks (a $3.50 value each) and two popcorns (a $3.25 value each) from the theater’s cinebar. Though most theaters use popcorn to meet the state-mandated liquid-butter minimum, the Moxie elevates kernel-cooking to an art worthy of its film selection, topping morsels with 13 distinct flavors, including barbecue, ranch, jalapeño, and apple cinnamon.
Beneath towering trees, paintballs and laser beams soar across Bill’s Extreme Paintball and Laser Tag’s 2-acre outdoor arena.

Vigilant referees stave off tomfoolery during matches, and picnic tables scattered around the facility provide platforms for snacks or birthday feasting. Bill's can also tote equipment to a customer’s chosen venue, allowing a partygoer to host a game in their own backyard, local park, or favorite alderman's office.
Equipped with likenesses of military-issue firearms, masked marksmen maneuver throughout a 10,000-square-foot warehouse, pelting each other with plastic BBs as they strafe down halls and overtake rooms.

The facility also organizes at least one scenario event each month, which is designed for beginners, but challenging enough for experienced players as well, plus a twice-monthly airsoft pistol and shotgun night. So Go Airsoft also engages large groups by opening its spacious arena to private parties.
