Champion over the intimidating attractions gracing all 18 holes at Monster Mini Golf, which contains enough geometric challenges to make the course interesting for all ages. Navigate your dimpled, glowing orb past gobbling goblins, disgruntled dark trees, impolite specters, sleeping ogres, and frightened businessmen. While playing or standing in awe of the 3-D course, guests can listen for Monster Mini Golf’s own in-house radio station, "W.I.R.D. (Weird Radio)," whose live, on-site DJ doles out prizes to minigolfers based on random criteria such as having multiple noses or the best high five.
Before purchasing a new video game, players at Press Play Entertainment can test out full versions of the latest releases. At surround-sound stations equipped with consoles such as Xbox, Wii, and PlayStation 3, 3D-ready HDTVs accentuate each game's crisp graphics. Press Play customers can also sample accessories like the PlayStation Move's mobile controllers or the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality headset.
At weekly tournaments held on 47-inch TVs, Press Play pits gamers against each other in rounds of new and old classics. Contestants square off in HALO, hunt each other down in Call of Duty, and argue against parking tickets in Street Fighter. For players 17 and up, Press Play raises the stakes with prizes such as sporting event tickets and vintage gaming systems.
Towering above the already-imposing 14-screen multiplex of Hoyts West Nursery Cinemas 14 is a luminescent globe encircled by a giant strip of film. It’s a sign of the theater’s mission to create an all-encompassing movie experience. Stadium seating inside every theater gives even the littlest family members undisturbed views of new releases, and digital sound systems broadcast musical numbers, high-tech explosions, and intercom requests to share your Skittles in crystal clarity. At the snack bar, traditional concessions are supplemented by made-to-order Uno pizzas.
A favorite exercise of telephone-line repairmen, fire fighters, and skyscraper iron workers, pole dancing provides a challenging yet approachable full-body workout for all adult clients. You’ll battle high blood pressure with the power of dance, whirling away stress and weight like a flank steak in a clothes dryer. Classes at Xpose Fitness are a perfect way to spicy up your exercise routine or surprise significant others with an activity more exciting than making them up like a clown while they are sleeping.
