For most of the year, Smithfield Farms is a humble plot of arable land. But as summer becomes fall, it transforms into Fields of Adventure, an autumn-themed fun park. Here, families can ride the old-fashioned wagon to the pumpkin field, where they can pick out the perfect gourds for their porch or stoop. But as the name suggests, Fields of Adventure offers more heart-pounding action as well. Guests can ferret their way through the 7-acre corn maze (the farm also builds a much smaller version for children) or zoom down the 600-foot zipline. The many other activities available here include pony rides, a straw bale maze, and outdoor bowling. Hungry patrons can even choose an ear of corn for staffers to turn into fresh kettle corn. As night falls, guests can gather round the campfires' glow, enjoying snacks, s'mores, and drinks from the concession stand.
At Carlisle Sports Emporium, revelers hone their hand-eye coordination in an arcade with more than 100 games and two whimsical 18-hole miniature-golf courses. Sprawled across 20-acres, the entertainment complex houses the 7,500-square-foot two-tiered LASERTRON laser-tag arena alongside multiple go-kart tracks, defining it as a definitive place to play. Guests can shine up their short game on a medieval-castle or western-themed mini golf courses, practice their best back spins at the roller skating rink, or grab a homemade pizza or french fries at Victory Lane Caf?. Visitors can also stretch their sinews on the computerized indoor climbing wall?which can simulate classic climbs such as El Capitan or Devil?s Tower.
At Laserdome, up to 40 troops at a time gear up for battle by donning vests and phasers in an alien-themed laser-tag arena. Players traipse across ramps and perch in balconies as they patiently wait to attack opponents, much like a lion crouches in the tall grass before shooting a gazelle with a laser. During play, fun power-ups such as rapid fire, spy mode, and freeze ray tilt the competition in favor of the lucky players who discover them.
After the rounds, players can celebrate victory or brush off defeat in the arcade, which features Xbox games, Dance Dance Revolution, new pinball arcades, and scores of other games that dispense tickets that can be traded for prizes. Laserdome also showcases laser-light shows with professional lighting in themes such as Pink Floyd. Future spies hone their skills in the laser maze, which uses lasers, mirrors, haze, and other challenges to test players as they compete for the high score or see who can refract the most light off their uncle?s forehead. Laserdome is available for parties for all occasions, and every Saturday a live band serenades players as they enjoy unlimited laser tag and a laser-lights show.

Starting in the mangrove swamps of South Florida as Tarzan’s Cup, The Jungle Cup tests runners’ warrior instincts and brute strength with a bevy of jungle-inspired challenges. Lone wolves, coed pairs, or teams of four take on the 5K course’s rivers of mud and swinging vines with the hope of winning the coveted Jungle Cup—or at least a finisher’s medal. Obstacles vary based on the run’s location, but contestants can rest assured that their endurance will be put to the test through primal trials such as leaping over fire pits, hurling javelins, and swimming through water hazards. After the race, athletes cool down with a frosty beverage at the Jungle Party, which celebrates their victories with fire shows, hula hoop-offs, and costume contests.
