Originally part of Henry Middleton’s private estate, Middleton Equestrian Center is now a separate parcel of more than 80 lush acres of pastoral oak trees and pastures. Guides lead trail rides that explore the adjacent Middleton Place, as well as other destinations that include abandoned rice fields, cypress swamps, and nearly 6,000 acres of wooded trails. An experienced coaching team leads lessons in a variety of styles, including hunter/jumper and dressage. More than 50 horses populate the property, and can often be found grazing in the 14 pastures, prancing in the dressage and jumping arenas, or nestling on the facility’s three barns.

Instead of shying away from the dark, GloZone revels in it, inviting guests to dart through shadows during laser tag or putt their way through a nine-hole glow-in-the-dark miniature-golf course. In the murky depths of the laser-tag arena, players attempt to score points by tagging targets with a hand-held device to the added ambiance of music, blacklights and fog. Laser-tag is ideal for birthday parties, group outings, or fundraising events.

Black lights illuminate the nine-hole mini-golf course with its own unique sea theme, as golfers putt their balls over contoured surfaces allowing players a change to hone their skills on the mini-golf course. The facility also offers a lazer maze, where guests must avoid a dancing array of laser light trip-wires as if they were in a spy movie. Nearby, bumper cars invite adventure driving, and arcade games and air hockey entice guests to rack up high scores. In addition to its open-play times, GloZone hosts parties for kids celebrating the anniversary of their safe delivery via stork.

The fast indoor electric karts at Charleston Rush can reach speeds of up to 50 mph. That comes in handy when you need to come out of a turn and zip down a straightaway to outrun an escaped cheetah. Racers don't have to worry about slowing down for weather, either. The 30,000 square-foot facility's two racetracks are both located indoors.

To prolong the fun, riders can stay for a game of glow-in-the-dark laser tag. Or, they can they can combine both activities into birthday parties, get-togethers, and fundraisers, complete with pizzas and party hosts.

Fully licensed and insured, All About Fun For Children hosts pony parties for birthdays, fundraisers, and any other event in need of some hoofed hilarity. Children can whinny with delight as they pet two ponies and check their mouths for gifts before riding behind one in a carriage and on the other in the saddle, and parents can snap photos to preserve the mirthful moments. The one-hour pony party includes participation by two ponies, but mane enthusiasts can learn about all five of All About Fun's ponies here. The staff of horse handlers has induced animal-related merriment in the Lowcountry and surrounding areas for more than 25 years, raising equine excellence to give parties a pick-up via highly practiced Kentucky Derby reenactments and by relating stories of former careers as cover models for Western romance novellas.
