The instructors at Kil'n Time Studio have one mission: to bring out the creative spirit in everyone. To do this, they draw on everything from clay to glass tiles to paint. And while students at their studio delve into the depths of their subconscious?or create colorful landscapes?they can watch movies or sip BYO wine.
Sportsplex West helps serious athletes and recreational weekenders train, practice, and compete year round in a modern, indoor sports facility. The 36-foot high, 1,050 square foot rock-climbing wall allows climbers to strap safely into harnesses and muscle their way up using ropes and footholds.

Put Everestine ambitions into action with the all-day rock climbing pass and scale the massive monolith at your own pace, or choose the six-month pass for half a year of unlimited scrambling.
Ready to heft furniture and boxes seven days a week, the uniformed teams from Iowa Moving 1 shuttle out to homes or offices across central Iowa. Once there, they load customer-provided moving trucks with the efficiency of an Olympic Tetris medalist, maximizing the use of space while protecting loads with furniture pads and securing them for transit with tie-downs. Though clients provide and drive their own trucks, the movers tote along their own dolly and a set of tools for disassembling beds or taking mirrors off dressers.
Waukee Beds’ packed showroom displays a breadth of spine-supporting mattresses from brands such as Ideal Bedding, Symbol, and Serta. Memory-foam bed toppers—the store’s specialty—conform to body shapes better than a latex onesie, and contain pressure- and temperature-sensitive materials to ease tossing and turning. Helpful staffers make themselves available seven days a week and until 7 p.m. on weekdays to answer questions and help customers determine the ideal mattress fit for their sleep style, be it on their back, side, or with both eyes open. Also available for purchase, framed wall art, including prints and photos, hangs along the showroom’s walls.
Although the staff of Park Place Catering happily travels to homes and businesses to help host events, they also open the doors of their own venue to up to 300 guests at a time. When renting this spacious, brick banquet hall, planners can choose a variety of spreads from the menu, which includes everything from breakfast to barbecue and Italian food. But they also get to enjoy more than just lovingly prepared cuisine. The space sits directly across from Kinnick-Feller Riverside Park, a forested sanctuary with a quaint white gazebo at its center. Walk off your meal during a leisurely stroll to the pavilion, or have a friendly game of meatball bocce on one of the park's athletic fields.
