For more than a decade, The Hitting Zone has helped baseball and softball players hone their slugging skills with top-notch batting cages. Its newly renovated facility includes seven new batting cages, new token machines, professional-quality turf, and enhanced lighting. While three cages devour tokens and spit out speedy pitches, schedule-savvy batters claim one of four regular cages for a designated hour of ball-pummeling against a Cy Young android lookalike.
The crack of bats and the cheers of putt-putters making hole-in-ones are mainstays in All Stars Family Fun Center's soundscape. Outside, guests navigate the miniature golf course or swat at curveballs in the batting cages. Inside, a plastic-formed pyramid leads kids to the Fun Factory, where they can leap into the air and traverse inflatable obstacles. The arcade, meanwhile, awards prizes to kids who win enough tickets or are particularly adept at blackmailing counter attendants, while the snack bar refuels players with pizza and hot dogs. The fun center can also host memorable birthday parties, replete with cake and a t-shirt for the celebrant.
At A-1 Sports and Wellness Center, a team of sports specialists and personal trainers help clients of all ages perfect their game and build their bodies into lean, muscular machines. Golf expert Kenrick Smith helps players fine-tune swings and strategy with video analysis and driving range practice. The facility also hosts archery ranges, kids' track programs, and batting cages that help train aspiring athletes in a wide range of skills.
Founded by sports enthusiast and former adolescent Rick Hart, Jump Start Sports works to enrich pupils' childhoods by developing useful life skills through athletics. Qualified counselors employ their wealth of experience working with children to help campers learn teamwork and fair play as well as the fundamentals of fielding baseballs, scoring soccer goals, or synchronizing pom-pom work. A course structure built around age-appropriate activities, group play, and free electives ensures that students never get bored, and an 8:1 pupil-teacher ratio enables one-on-one assistance to young champions as they practice the graceful art of pitching or the scheming intrigue of free-agent contract negotiation.
Kenrick Smith and his team of golf instructors are driven by one central goal in their eight-week lesson package: turn beginners into lifetime golfers. Kenrick?s academy, The Triangle Golf School, provides a curriculum that focuses on building a fundamentally sound swing and a teaching environment that is fun, constructive, and does not force students to forage for their own bounty of wild golf balls. Though primarily geared toward junior golfers, the school offers lessons and clinics to clubbers of all ages and abilities. The Triangle School?s indoor facility fosters year-round practice, allowing players to hone their swings without fearing rain or dust storms created by rebellious sand traps.
Attractions such as miniature golf, batting cages, and laser tag make Adventure Landing an ideal location for getting in fun, interactive family time. Whether the kids opt for a heart-accelerating whip around the go-kart track or a few swings of the bat, the fun center gives families every excuse to band together or square off against one another in friendly competition. School, church, and corporate outings are available as well, giving groups of all ages a place to gather, nosh on pizza, and create complex victory dances.
