Dairy Dream's soft-serve stewards quell customers' dessert cravings with refreshing, frost-emitting treats. Soft-serve cones and sherbets provide taste buds with the sweet notes and nuances of vanilla, sherbet, and vanilla-sherbet twist ($0.99–$2.19). Cold concoctors hand-dip ice-cream cones into ambrosial strawberry, mint chocolate chip, and pecan praline Niagara Falls flavor reservoirs ($1.99–$2.69), and docile banana-split sundaes burrow into waffle bowls to take refuge from swooping spoons and banana-peel ghosts ($3.59). Spinsters swirl confectionary favorites including Oreos, Butterfingers, and cookie dough ($2.89–$4.29), and the straws of root-beer floats and old-fashioned shakes transport liquefied treats mouth-ward ($2.39–$3.69). To sate savory senses as well as sweet, Dairy Dream also stocks its menu with a wide variety of diner fare including hot dogs ($1.49–$2.49), burgers ($3.59–$3.99), and chili cheese fries ($1.99).
For more than 30 years, Quiznos has toasted its submarine sandwiches to bring out the hidden flavors found in butcher-quality meats, cheese, and artisan breads.

Quiznos' Toasty Bullets and Torpedoes offer slimmer versions of sub fare and flaunt supreme aerodynamics when shot out of T-shirt cannons and into mouths. A selection of Flatbread Sammies, soups, and salads round out Quiznos' varied menu.

The echoes of crunching metal and the sweet smell of burning rubber fill arenas as the Monster X Tour roars across the country, thrilling all ages in action-packed motorsports showcases. Each city will witness a slightly different fleet of monster trucks, including Bigfoot, the kinetic king of chassis-crushing autos, and Rock Star, a 2004 Chevrolet Colorado with 66" wheels and 26" hydraulic shocks. Each event incorporates jaw-dropping races, wheelie contests, and freestyle car composting. In addition to the monster trucks, fans are treated to such entertainment as high flying freestyle motocross and demolition derbies.

Two Midwestern locations bear the Crossfire Paintball name, together covering more than 50 acres of natural wooded terrain and open battlefields peppered with logs and drain-pipe bunkers.

Just as games for small groups and birthday or bachelor parties boost camaraderie among friends, corporate outings foster vital interoffice skills such as problem solving, quick thinking, and coordinating ties with colorful shirt stains.
