Fundy Tidal Bore Adventures founder Morgan McDonald is a passionate rafter with a decade of experience navigating the Shubenacadie River, whose shores are made of clay and dotted with trees. The high and low tides here mean that there are varying degrees of wave intensity, and the company's experienced guides can tailor the experience to suit each group’s comfort level. Before the trip, guides will help passengers suit up in PFDs and store their valuables in waterproof bags. The crewmember can snap pictures of the trip along the way; they’ll then email the photos to you later or stuff them into a bottle and float them to postal workers wearing waterskis.

Designed by course architect Les Furber, The Links at Penn Hills’ 18-hole course weaves through waterways, wooded tracts, and rolling terrain for 7,236 yards of challenging golf. Breezes drift onto the course from the nearby Shubenacadie River, creating a tranquil environment for players to split fairways with soaring drives and carb-free clubs. At the end of each hole, bent-grass greens present a slick surface for each testy, breaking putt. Water hazards come into play on six holes, including the par 5 seventh, where shots must clear water and land on a bunker-fortified island green patrolled by a bearded, marooned Tom Hanks. The course promotes game improvement with a training complex that includes a 300-yard driving range, a nine-hole practice green, and a practice bunker. Course at a Glance: * Designed by Les Furber * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 7,236 yards from the farthest tees * Four tee options

Out in the disconcertingly quiet countryside, Nights of Gore's cornfields beckon visitors to explore winding pathways and dare them to escape with both their sanity and limbs intact. All manner of horrifying creatures prowl the stalks in search of victims, from possessed children to unfathomable creepy crawlies to unemployed former talk-show hosts. Inside the kids’ haunted maze, less frightening creatures wander around and startle young ones without attempting to turn their hair white. The morning sun banishes the terrors of the field, giving visitors a chance to explore the farm's mazes, fields, and cattle areas without fear of being frightened or having a zombie ask them for makeup advice.
