  • Edgeworks Climbing
    In 2004, a group of skilled climbers and experienced route setters married their expansive knowledge of the sport to create Edgeworks Climbing. The gym is an indoor paradise that expertly match the dynamic challenges that athletes face outdoors, boasting 10,000 square feet of climbing area with 25-foot top-rope routes, 35-foot lead routes, and 3,500 square feet of bouldering. The team of setters draws on years of experience outdoors to create hundreds of challenging, satisfying routes for climbers of all skill levels. Most of the setters are teachers as well, leading classes for beginners or advanced climbers, as well as heading outdoors to help the class appreciate the adrenaline rush of an outdoor climb ending in a fistfight with a bear. Additionally, the passionate staff realized that alternative workouts are needed to push through plateaus in climbs, so they created a fitness area to complement the climbing gym. Classes such as yoga, Pilates, and cycling further exercise muscle groups that are useful when trying to finally ride a bike up your favorite route.

  • Pacific Slot Car Raceways
    The founders of Pacific Slot Car Raceways just want a place to race with their friends. In fact, not one of them takes a paycheck from the business; all profits go into the operation and improvement of the raceway's quarter-mile drag strip and three 8-lane tracks.? Tiny cars zip along these tracks on a daily basis, flying around hairpin turns, roaring up inclines, and tearing down straightaways. The pit areas are roomy enough for several racers to attend to their cars, while a comfy perch allows spectators to keep an eye on the action at all times. The raceways host regular programs for kids and adults, such as a vintage-retro racing series that sees drivers maneuvering their cars with an electronic slot car controller.
