The Airpark Golf Academy transforms wobbly swings into ball-smashing swings with personalized lessons and instructional camps. During the 50-minute individual lesson, students get personalized instruction to help them improve club grip, posture, and footwork during post-swing celebratory dances. Using your own set of clubs or a loaner set from the academy, attack driving-range balls (included in the deal) under the tutelage of academy-owner Joe Luthe. More than 150 players of all skill levels and hairstyles have worked with Joe to lower their handicaps and improve their swings.
Equipped with 3-D capabilities and digital sound, Spotlight Theatres Searstown 10 can easily handle the increasingly sophisticated demands of modern film projection. The theater is also preparing for future innovations coming down Hollywood's pipeline. Here are three upgrades on the horizon: Tantalus 3D
The latest action extravaganza based on Greek mythology. As the greedy Tantalus is punished by the gods and trapped between water he can't drink and food he can't reach, audiences feel like they're there with him thanks to the magic of 3-D glasses with the lenses removed.
Advances in CGI and multitrack editing have allowed Hollywood to layer the final five minutes of every Best Picture–winning film into a single cathartic joyride. The festival circuit has praised the sequence where Michael Corleone orchestrates an assassination of Forrest Gump, Rocky, and Mozart just as they board swan-ships in the Grey Havens, only to be avenged by hordes of medieval Scotsmen led by Lawrence of Arabia.
Dances With Wolves
Now that technology has caught up to Kevin Costner's original vision of the frontier on the cusp of modernity, this classic has received a digital remastering. Lieutenant John Dunbar is stationed on the edge of Sioux territory, but soon finds himself torn between the opposing worlds of unstoppable Western expansion and simple tribal virtues. The bittersweet film tells the universal tale of old versus new. Also, everyone rides unicorns.
Since 1953, the Coast Guard–certified captains and Merchant Marines of Miss Cape Canaveral Fleet have safely taken guests out to sea in search of trophy-size mackerel, amberjack, snapper, and sharks. As Florida's largest deep-sea-fishing vessel, the 85-foot Lydia yacht hosts up to 100 passengers—just like a large horse carriage pulled by a strongman—and offers comfortable accommodations such as a temperature-controlled lounge and cushioned seats. Fishing adventures provide guests with rods, reels, bait, and tackle big enough for the predators dwelling deep beneath the surface. Guests are invited to snap their own jaws around hot meals, unlimited sodas, coffee, and, for over-21 anglers, a duo of frosty canned beers noodled from the icy depths of the ship's cooler.
Manned by a Coast Guard-certified crew, a 65-foot speedboat safely whisks passengers along the beaches of Cape Canaveral during 90-minute dolphin-watching tours. The captain pulls off wave-skirting maneuvers, pausing to point out the playful sea mammals, who enjoy swimming, jumping, and high-fiving in the wake of the boat. Flying fish may whiz by the stern, and sea turtles have been known to lazily approach the hull of the docked watercraft. The captain also discusses Port Canaveral's history as passengers snap photos of military ships and submarines in port.
The Loughman Lake Beer and Food Fest, formerly known as the Titusville Craft Beer Festival, sets a spread of up to 70 domestic and craft beers for festival-goers to sample amidst the scenic vista at Loughman Lake. Since 2012, the festival has been a destination for fun lovers of all stripes: guests can chew the fat about their favorite baseball teams or play full-contact chess in the sports lounge, toast digital gladiators in the video-game area, or rock out to live music played throughout the day. Thanks to the new venue, the festival also offers a chance to jet across the wetlands on an airboat with reservations through the lakeside lodge.
Aboard Obsession Charters's party boat, experienced captains lead groups into fish-laden waters, where lines are cast out into the ocean in search of species such as grouper, snapper, and sharks. The 65-foot watercraft launches out of Port Canaveral on full-day and half-day trips across the giant bathtub disguised as the Atlantic Ocean. As fishers wield rented rods or their own equipment, staff situated in an air-conditioned galley serves up hot food and cold beer. After trips, Obsession Charters's cleaning tables let customers prep their catches. In addition to voyages aboard their signature vessel, the staff also books private charters by negotiating with the monocled whales who own Port Canaveral’s most popular fishing boats. Most aquatic exhibitions include bait, and Obsession Charters's captains also allow customers to catch their own offshore.
Bikram Yoga on the Island's founders, Suzanne and Joe Elliott, draw inspiration from their students' physical progress and development each week, ensuring that each session addresses the needs of first-day students, casual practitioners, and lifelong yogis. Ten years of experience fuel Suzanne and Joe's work as instructors, with each tapping his or her encyclopedic knowledge to guide pupils through two breathing exercises and 26 poses. Along with a staff of instructors, the two founders demonstrate and describe the proper execution of each posture with the authority of an Olympic Twister medalist.
As students fold and unfold limbs, each movement helps promote healthy organ function by pushing freshly oxygenated blood throughout their entire bodies. Meanwhile, the studio's heating system helps them safely sink into each stretch and sweat out toxins by raising the temperature to 105 degrees with 40% humidity. After class, attendees can freshen up with the studio's indoor and outdoor shower facilities.
