In place of what once was a sand mine, Crystal City Underground has transformed more than 6 million square feet—approximately 200 acres—of sub-surface space into a climate-controlled entertainment facility. With 30- to 40-foot ceilings, thick pillars carved out of rock, and a lake, it presents visitors with a multifaceted underground experience, one that already includes sand volleyball, disc golf, and weekend barge rides. Future plans for Crystal City have it adding more recreational amenities en route to becoming a subterranean cultural and convention center.

Patrons may have to look extra carefully to find Fallout Frenzy Laser Tag. That's because the laser-tag arena dispatches sharpshooters in an underground battlefield, home to a former sand mine and complete with strange cave structures and ceilings that reach heights of up to 40 feet. Additionally, because games unfurl underground in a climate-controlled environment, players never have to deal with rain, snow, or clouds shaped like ex–best friends.
