Rotorzen instills students with the skills and savvy needed to command the open-air cockpit of a powered parachute. Certified instructors nurse knowledge over 60 minutes of pre-flight training, teaching aspiring daredevils how to handle instrumentation and sneak up on cirrus clouds from behind. Students next take to the skies for 30 minutes of turbine-charged cruising as they skim over and sail through the air above the Lansing Municipal Airport. Flight lessons depend upon wind conditions and are offered Friday evenings, Saturday mornings, Saturday evenings, and Sunday mornings. While powered parachutes accommodate only one pilot at a time, individuals can bring along fellow flyers to join in on the acrobatic antics. All flight time can be applied toward FAA sport pilot certification and subsequent opportunities to tickle the moon into sneezing green cheese.

Ghastly horrors prowl Massacre Haunted House in search of new victims and fresh screams. Inside, 75 actors in full makeup startle wary explorers navigating more than 60 rooms strewn with gruesome scenes that would strike fear into the heart of any adult, teen, or amnesiac zombie. Unsettling mazes and living nightmares stand between brave souls and the exit, where a second haunt—Fear Factory 3-D—awaits to pull them deeper into the madness. Where the haunted house may have turned hairs white with the help of live actors, the factory coaxes screams with 3D special effects made possible with specialized glasses.

The cellar at 42 W. New York St. teems with terrifying secrets. According to legend, it once housed a laundry company where a faulty boiler exploded, burning two engineers who vowed revenge on their bosses. Soon, workers began disappearing ... only to reappear in the nearby river, their arms still clutching perfectly starched shirts. Though the laundry closed, no business ever thrived there again. That cellar became the grisly playground of the two engineers?and is now known as the Basement of the Dead.

But the engineers and their ongoing crimes aren't the only scares to be found in that place. There's also Shattered the Clown?a murderous performer armed with a sledgehammer. After his famous trick backfired and turned deadly, Shattered went on a rampage through the audience. He then hid in that same basement, going increasingly mad with only the souls of his victims to keep him company. He's since turned his part of the cellar into a colorful, terrifying 3D circus.

You might think that so many madmen would crowd the place, but every Halloween, the Basement of the Dead opens up to visitors. Its attractions have earned it the title of #1 haunted house in Chicagoland from the Chicago Tribune, whose writer proclaimed, "you did what few horror movies and even fewer haunted houses could ever do: You genuinely terrified me."

The Smart Race's formula is simple: the challenge of a scavenger hunt plus the thrill of a competition equals one fun day of citywide adventuring. Teams of two download the race's iPhone app, then head to one of the starting areas revealed on the day of the event. The app also marks the finish line with a red pin—the only question is how to get there. To navigate, participants puzzle over a series of knotty riddles, each pointing to a location in the city. They mark their maps with pins at each of the decoded spots, planning out their route before setting off on foot or by public transit. At each stop, an app-enabled challenge asks teams to perform such tasks as searching out hidden spots by compass or chase an invisible rabbit by onscreen radar. After completing every challenge, racers head to the finish line, located at a bar stocked with beverages and outlets to recharge both phones and users.

Most people don't associate lemon-pepper sauce with the need to chug down cooling drinks. But at Buffalo Wings & Rings, it's an option. That's because the chefs made the decision to separate their 11 signature wing sauces from heat levels. They do this by offering five separate heat sauces, ranging from mild to atomic, which can be blended into the wing sauce of choice for just the slightest kick or tear-worthy hotness. But this isn't the only way chefs can customize wings. They offer their signature dish in three styles, from the traditional bone-in wing to boneless wings and chicken tenders. With any of these options, chefs can fry the wings in a batter or grill them to create a healthier snack. For an extra kick, they can even smother wings in extra sauce. Finally, they serve wings with a choice of bleu cheese or ranch dressing, both of which take the edge off of spiciness.
