  • Polar Ice House
    Flakes of ice float through the frosty air, twinkling in the light. Rosy-cheeked children skate across the glittery ice, clutching their parents' gloved hands and shrieking gleefully. Though it seems as though it belongs in the pages of a winter fairy tale, this is the scene of a typical August afternoon at Polar Ice House. The hot summer sun burns brightly outside, but the temperature inside the vast indoor ice rink remains a brisk 45 degrees. Although the wintry conditions make the rink a less than ideal venue for a bikini fashion show, the cold environment is perfect for the skating lessons, hockey games, and public-skating and hockey sessions that the rink hosts year-round. The center's attentive instructors lead students of all ages and experience levels through fundamental skating skills, progressing to advanced techniques, such as jumping, spinning, and karate chopping aggressive abominable snowmen, once students have mastered the basics.

  • Art Student Academy
    Professional artists M. Theresa Brown and Stephen Filarsky channel more than 20 years of experience at the easel to guide students during two-hour art workshops, parties, and afterschool kids’ programs. Workshops elucidate the process of re-creating stunning artworks that depict abstract felines, rustic tobacco barns, and fractals grazing in wintry landscapes. The instructors supply all of the materials and techniques needed to craft masterworks, and encourage participants to hang their take-home paintings in high-traffic hallways. Adult students supply their own beverages at select BYOB classes, and young aesthetes expand their horizons in kids’ classes that encompass drawing, painting, sculpting, and telekinetic printing.

  • Haunted Forest at Panic Point
    Haunted Forest at Panic Point sends brave visitors inching along a half-mile trail, hoping to make it past 10 jarring horror scenes and dozens of ghouls trying to separate visitors from their groups. The Haunted Forest is one of more than a handful of different attractions at Panic Point, which spreads out across 50 acres. Guests can also endure complete and utter darkness while traversing the path on the Dark Walk, or they can hitch a lift on the Howling Hayride. Though many of the haunted attractions are best for those 12 and older, Panic Point offers two youngster-friendly attractions: the Zombie Shootout and Menacing Maze. In the Shootout, thrill-seekers can take aim at zombies with laser guns. The Menacing Maze is Panic Point's only monster-free attraction, since monsters are notoriously bad with directions.

  • Kidventurez
    Kidventurez is a blank canvas where children's ideas spring to life. As the mind behind the creative space, owner Stephanie Walker used her own experience as a mother to concoct the facility. "I really love the whole concept of kids using their minds to play," she told Midtown Raleigh News. Inside, pintsized visitors hop across various stations that spur ingenuity, such as the performing stage, where they can put on plays for friends, and Kenzie's Kitchen, where they can practice burning fake popcorn in a fake microwave. Smaller children enjoy the freedom of Toddler Town's scaled-down attractions, and parents, similarly, enjoy the freedom of either sitting back and watching playtime unfold or leaving for a short respite.

  • Triangle Skydiving Center
    As the super-otter aircraft climbs through the clouds, the energy in the plane is palpable. First-time skydivers and veterans of the sport, all giddy for the oncoming rush of wind and velocity, ready themselves for their leap into the vast blue yonder waiting just outside the plane?s door. For the skilled staff of Triangle Skydiving Center, that feeling is the reason they come to work every morning. Whether they're plunging themselves and a harnessed patron through midair at 13,500 feet or selling high-quality parachute equipment in the gear store, they're dedicated to helping customers find that thrill that previously was only attained by shrinking the kids and living vicariously through them as they spelunk from picnic tables.

  • PDQ Farm
    Instructor Cheryl Frazier takes a holistic approach to horseback-riding lessons; instead of just teaching students to ride, she also imparts grooming and tacking skills. That way, her students form a bond with their horses before hopping on their backs to guide them through European and Western riding techniques. She caters her lessons to accommodate beginning to advanced riders, and some of her more experienced protégés make up a blue-ribbon-winning show team and a 4-H Club dedicated to showing horses and providing community service. The farm is also home to a tack and consignment shop that stocks gently used show outfits and last year?s fashionable neon pink and glittery horseshoes.
