  • Kendall Cliffs
    Climbers stand at the base of the textured plywood and rock surfaces that climb the walls of Kendall Cliffs' 7,000-foot space and picture themselves reaching the summit?a 35-foot high arch that reaches across to the opposite wall. Designed by Nicros, the facility presents varying gravitational challenges for scalers to mount, from tackling the bouldering cave to tickling the bouldering cave's petroglyphs. Intrepid and experienced instructors lead climbing classes, calibrated for varying skill levels and covering topics such as knot tying, belaying, bouldering, and sport routes.

  • Dimensions of Darkness
    The entry door slams shut, and you immediately plunge into a world of terror and macabre. Skeletons hang from a dungeon's walls, maniacal clowns run through a fun house, and a blood-spattered bathroom horrifyingly runs out of soap. This is Dimensions of Darkness, a haunted walk-through that takes brave souls across a maze of terrifying rooms with even more terrifying inhabitants. The fright fest has caught the attention of USA Today and the Toledo Free Press, which noted that "each room, hallway and prop is so well-crafted that if you’re not being stalked by one of the resident ghouls, your focus is on how real everything feels." Thoroughly immersed in their roles, live actors pop out at guests, thus filling every room with an orchestra of screams. Meanwhile, fog creeps over the floors and creepy sounds build tension between every scare. But despite this terror, visitors are never trapped. Security officers, each thoroughly vaccinated against zombies, stand ready to lead guests to the nearest exit should they wish to depart early.

  • Scarehouse Windsor
    It's dark within Scare House Windsor, and visitors never quite know what lurks down the next hallway or within the next room. A maniacal clown might elicit screams, or a madman may wield his chainsaw until he's offered a job as a lumberjack. Or maybe visitors will run into Shawn Lippert, one of Scare House Windsor's sinister creators. Along with a band of volunteers, Mr. Lippert has crammed horror into every inch of the 20,000-square-foot haunted house, which has become an annual Halloween staple. Mr. Lippert's creation is so authentically spine-tingling, in fact, that he's using it as the setting for a horror film of the same name.

  • Fight For Air Climb
    The Fight for Air Climb is a fight for many things. It's a fight for those afflicted with lung cancer. It's a fight for infants and older children stricken with asthma. It's a fight to prevent kids from ever falling into the peer pressures of smoking, and it's fight for those with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). The fight isn't easy. In fact, it's a total body workout that tests the lungs, stamina, and shoe soles. But it rewards all who participate, and helps to make the world a better place to inhale. Like ascending an indoor mountain or scaling a concrete beanstalk, the Fight for Air Climb starts participants of all ages at the base of Cleveland's massive 52-story skyscraper, Terminal Tower. Step by step and floor by floor, without the benefit of escalators, elevators, or Fizzy Lifting Drink, altruistic athletes, youngsters, and senior citizens torch calories and thank their capacious lungs as they march to the top tiers of the tower. And for those who want to maximize their exercise experience, a training guide is on hand with tips on how to achieve fitness goals.

  • Nature Center At Shaker Lakes
    The eco-stewards at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes work to conserve a natural bundle of lakes, streams, marshes, fields, ravines, and forests on the lush site's 20 acres, in addition to teaching environmental-education classes and hosting community-building events. The household membership contributes to the cause and nets families a grab bag of nature-center goodies, including discounts on programs and workshops, facility rentals, and early registration for all outdoor adventure camps. Lapsed naturalists can hopscotch along two trails, where flora such as sycamores, hickory, and sassafras surround the habitats of raccoons, red-tailed hawks, red foxes, Redd Foxx, and salamanders. Or feel free to spy on the flight patterns of local birds; the Audubon Society dubbed Shaker Lakes as an Important Bird Area for its population of autonomous aviators.
