Supplying all types of social gatherings with entertainment-enhancing games and activities, Springfield Party Rental stocks a sprightly set of family-friendly bouncy houses, big-shot-belittling dunk tanks, or six-person laser-tag sets. Though this deal is valid for the standard bouncer, rocketing ricocheters can upgrade to a themed castle, such as Bob the Builder or the Clown Bouncer (an additional $25), or land a bounce-and-slide combo to really rile up guests at your city-council-overthrow fundraiser (an additional $100). Party planners can take the initiative to pick up, set up, and take down their own rentals (the job requires two adults, and is easy with three), and the dunk tank is towable with a 2" hitch. However, professional delivery and pick-up are also available at a flat rate of $60 within 10 miles, and $3 per loaded mile after that—similarly, setup and takedown are an additional fee.
Busts of Stan Musial, Lou Brock, Ozzie Smith, and Jack Buck line the Legends Walkway outside the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. But the museum spotlights more than just baseball history. Its inductees hail from the high school, collegiate, and professional ranks, including players and coaches from the Rams, Chiefs, Royals, and Blues. Highlights of the many exhibits and articles of sports memorabilia include the Budweiser NASCAR car, the wing dedicated to the Missouri Valley Conference, and the pole that Paul Bunyan used to vault over the St. Louis Arch.
Deer Lake Golf Course emerges out of verdant greenery and idyllic meadows to test golfers of all skill levels with its challenging topography. Players whack their way through more than 6,800 yards of lush fairways, overcoming an arsenal of obstacles that include sand traps, long shots, water hazards, and Pete Sampras's tennis racket. Before hitting the links, hone putting and driving skills at the nearby practice facilities, or receive direct guidance that can improve an amateur swing from a course professional. The clubhouse's grill appeases competitive appetites with drinks and sandwiches, fuel for participating in Deer Lake's schedule of golf tournaments.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?
There is a four hour ground school training session followed by the solo jump on the same day. The training is a mix of in classroom power point and hands on learning. In the training, we explain everything the jumpers need to know in order to do a solo skydive. For the hands on learning, we have a training harness for jumpers to practice on. We basically go through the whole skydive on the ground before the actual jump.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
There is the excitement and thrill of skydiving. It's also a very interesting group of friends.
Apart from your business's main attraction, do you offer any "hidden" services or activities that visitors are always delighted to learn about?
There is a restaurant on premise open on Saturdays. First time jumpers and others observers that come out to watch always enjoy watching our regular jumpers float down. It's very pretty to see canopies in the air floating to the ground.
The instructors at CrossFit - Springfield know their workouts take a little getting used to. Students rarely walk in with perfect form on the clean and jerk or the endurance to repeatedly launch medicine balls into the air. With this in mind, instructors lead free introductory classes twice a week to familiarize new guests with CrossFit. During high-intensity workouts throughout the week, the gym fills with the snap of jump ropes, the clatter of free weights, and the idling of airliners waiting to be pulled somewhere. Classes blend plyometrics and exercises on parallel bars with Olympic lifts, including the power clean and the deadlift. Workouts are scaled to meet the fitness level of each participant and are led by a dynamic collection of instructors, including ER nurses, college-football stars, Marines, and competitive kickboxers.
