Paranoia Haunted House's sinister staff cautiously opens creaking doors to allow guests to meander through the labyrinthine interior of the otherworldly abode. Doff caps at pumpkin-headed metallic sentinels before crossing the supernatural threshold that leads to sights more spine-tingling than a chiropractic exam performed by a kindergartener. Murderous monsters wielding blood-dripped chainsaws, and machetes chase unwelcome visitors from room to dreary, fog-drenched room. The laughter of a maniacal clown will cause arm hair to leap from its roots, and a strobe-lit corridor will churn brain cells into foolish blobs incapable of comprehending fear or Jeff Foxworthy jokes. The box office opens at 7 p.m. every evening, with spooky expeditions continuing until 11 p.m. on Thursday and the stroke of midnight on Friday and Saturday.
Stitch Pretty's owner, Carla Powell, draws upon a master's degree in textile design to preside over experienced instructors as they coach patrons on modern techniques for crafting sturdy seams in introductory classes. Pupils dust off their own appliances for Learn to Love Your Sewing Machine sessions, during which eight novices practice basics and learn to thread presser feet, switch out bobbins, and give dolls intimidating new limbs. Six students bring materials to feed new Baby Lock sewing machines during Skills for Sewing sessions. Thread jockeys conquer the contraption's controls to perfect fundamental stitches that form straight and zigzag lines and aesthetic embellishment over the course of two hours of hands-on exercises.
Although instructors Travis Clark and Jon Gillespie lead Southeast Photo Adventures's workshops and excursions, they share the teaching load with the shores of Tybee Island and the depths of Cloudland Canyon. Students shoot shoulder-to-shoulder with instructors amid these sprawls of striking Southeastern scenery, whether they're enrolled in 2.5-hour workshops, Foto Field Trips open to workshop grads, or weekend-long adventures. The field-trip-style outings are open to all skill levels, but beginners can also enhance their expertise in introductory courses on Photoshop, digital photography, and DSLR cameras' complex settings, which control everything from shutter speed to the tiny red light bulb behind each of our eyes.
Inside each Sky Zone location, a wall-to-wall half-pipe made entirely of trampolines gives children and adults a venue where they can safely hop, bounce, and somersault to their hearts' content. The vast, taut, springy flooring doesn't end at the walls, but instead the trampolines continue upward to form angles perfect for crawling up, springing off, or sliding down. Visitors can meander along the bounceable terrain in the open trampoline arena, throw themselves into giant foam pits, or sharpen their competitive edges in trampoline-assisted sports such as dodgeball. SkyRobics classes merge gravity-defying fun with fitness during instructor-led workouts that include calisthenics, core exercises, and strength-building aerobics to help guests shed calories without hurting their joints or taking a wrong turn on a treadmill.
Two Wheel Adventures owner Chris Carr's love of motorcycles has driven him to adventures including becoming the 2011 AHRMA Middleweight Superbike National Champion, careening into authordom with Street Riding Secrets, and bestowing his knowledge of motorcycle handling on budding enthusiasts with a series of introductory classes. Together with a team of moto-enthusiasts, he leads courses that run the gamut from two-hour introductions to motorcycling or scooter skills to two-day basic riding courses, motorcycle street-savvy sessions, and licensing courses. For certain courses, students can borrow one of the motorcycles from Two Wheel Adventures' stable of 250cc Kawasaki Ninjas, Honda Nighthawks, and Yamaha XTs, rather than scrounging up a borrowed bike or attaching a motor to a unicycle.
