  • Randy's Indoor Golf
    The 10’x10’ course simulator screens at Randy’s Indoor Golf vividly replicate the bucolic, short-grass corridors of famous courses from the comfort of an indoor, 18-hole golf studio. The fairway facsimiles allow golfers to strike real golf balls off of custom, divot-action golf mats that emulate clubs’ response on real grass without offending Mother Earth's curvaceous topography. Each simulated course is vibrantly brought to life using 3-D graphics, whisking club-toting clientele to courses modeled after 22 famous links such as Torrey Pines and Bethpage Black. Throughout each round, players also benefit from swing-analysis feedback on each shot, allowing them to savor the precise yardage of an extra-long drive or enlist concrete data during motivational speeches delivered to underperforming 6-irons. Before each round, players can also adjust the virtual weather to match their stormy temperament, reflect their sunny disposition, or satisfy their fixation with golf ball-size hail. In addition to golf, Randy's offers other virtual sports, including bowling, baseball, and hang gliding.

  • Cliff's Amusement Park
    Whether the name of the game is to have some family fun or to scream like a banshee, Cliff's Amusement Park has been the place to do it for more than 50 years. The first thing you'll notice as you drive up is the New Mexico Rattler, a 3,000-foot wooden roller coaster that twists and turns its way around the edges of the park and plunges—for a few terrifying seconds—into an underground tunnel. The Cliff Hanger makes an anticipation-building ascent before freefalling back to earth, and the SideWinder twirls passengers 80 feet into the air on a structure resembling Paul Bunyan's spare wagon wheel. The jungle-themed WaterMania area lets youngsters climb like monkeys and race down slippery water slides. They also can enjoy slower-paced fun inside bumper cars, on the Tilt-A-Whirl, or during a leisurely trip around the park on an old-timey train.

  • Yoga by Julia
    Owner Julia Bowen spent the last 14 years learning about health, anti-aging methods, natural healing, and movement of energy through the body. During her studies, she discovered yoga, which resulted in a new passion and prompted her to open Yoga by Julia, enabling her to help others fall in love with yoga for life. Julia's staff of instructors fill the week with a variety of styles and levels of yoga classes for beginners and experienced practitioners alike. The friendly teachers are knowledgeable, supportive, have undergone advanced training, and strive to make all classes fun and approachable. They supplement their schedule with the core-reforming regimens of Pilates and Yoga Sculpt, a vigorous class that combines cardio, yoga, and weight-lifting. All classes take place within their hardwood-floored studio, amid natural light and twinkling Christmas lights.

  • Hoot's Ultimate Party Zone
    Across 7,000 square feet of open space, kids tumble, slide, and climb through Hoot’s Ultimate Party Zone’s brightly colored attractions. Bouncy castles and a soft 20-foot-high slide stretch their wobbly peaks toward the center’s towering ceiling, and a 40-foot-long obstacle course challenges runners to cross canvas bridges and pretend to jump tricycles over 40 school buses. Open-play times allow kids to drop in for bursts of energy expenditure, and weekend party packages provide balloons, pizzas, and goodie bags for birthday celebrations. Additionally, all play structures are made from strong materials, allowing adults to accompany their kids into the bouncy arenas or retire to the lounge to recline in leather chairs, watch television, and connect to the free WiFi.

  • Texas Tomato Battle
    At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.

  • Innovation Arts and Entertainment
    A project of Feel Good Festivals, the New Mexico Cup celebrates the area's fine wines and craft beers while also supporting a worthy cause. This year's beneficiary is Tricklock Company, a theater organization dedicated to examining the human experience through poetic theater and absurdism. Festival-goers first sample adult beverages from regional wineries and craft breweries, then cast their vote for the tastiest pours. Professional and celebrity judges also weigh in on their favorites. The Albuquerque Convention Center echoes with the sounds of live music, the names of raffle winners, and the excited shouts of anyone who didn’t realize Prohibition ended 80 years ago.
