Professionally certified by the USGA, Marvin Warren of Sure Shot Golf Lab utilizes state-of-the-art scientific monitors and graphs to fit clubs to their owners, aiming to improve each golfer's game. During a private, one-on-one session at the on-site driving range, Mr. Warren kicks off the 2.5-hour custom fitting by evaluating each client's height, wrist-to-floor distance, hand measurements, and vocal range during operatic arias of "fore." Golfers then hit balls off the lie board to determine which part of the club hits the green. After collecting this data, Warren captures spin rates, launch angle, ball speed, swing path, and club-head speed using a cutting-edge and highly sensitive launch monitor. With all of the collected data, the lab alters clubs to fit each customer's individual needs, working to improve games on the green and to increase fruit-slinging precision on the kitchen table.
Decaying skeletons and demonic nannies lurk in the corners of Graves Manor's ghastly family room, dining room, and parlor. Elsewhere, screams echo throughout the Madison Square Mortuary, a space haunted by equally unsettling sights, including a crazed clown, fanged creatures, and stacks of unfinished paperwork. Nashville Nightmare has been named a 2013 Must Haunt by Haunted Attractions Magazine and lauded by Nashville's About.com chapter as one of the city's best haunted houses for its mixture of bloodcurdlingly detailed scenes, animations, special effects, and a dedicated troupe of intense actors.

Though some of Virginia Wine Tours’ staffers swear by Argentinean Malbecs and others favor New Zealand Rieslings, one thing’s certain: they’re all passionate about Northern Virginian wines. These aficionados conduct tours through a sweeping array of vineyards across the region, including the intimate Bluemont Vineyard in Loudon County, the sprawling Gray Ghost Vineyard in Rappahannock County, and the mountainside Naked Mountain Winery in Fauquier County. During these full- and half-day trips, they enlighten groups with local area viniculture facts and anecdotes, as well as encourage them to mix and mingle amongst their fellow wine enthusiasts. Virginia Wine Tours provides tour groups with transportation to and from wineries, sparing customers the inconvenience of having to worry about parking their cars or mastering the art of vehicle levitation.
Jambalaya Sports & Entertainment takes workouts out of the box with sports leagues and social events. Participants play a variety of sports including basketball, dodgeball, tennis, and bowling at the facility's indoor courts. Three times a year, the complex also hosts basketball tournaments to raise funds for its Midnight Basketball program for high-risk youth.
Laser Adventure’s indoor laser-tag facility hosts epic 20-minute rounds of shootouts in the style of paintball but without the messy splatter or irritating welts. Participants are outfitted with realistically sized laser guns, instead of those comically oversized laser guns used in English period dramas, and blast-receptive headgear that helps avoid frustrating “I hit you, nuh uh” shooting quarrels of childhood make-believe wars. If future zero gravity excites you more than light-based weaponry, try an intense, 10-minute match of Aeroball, which combines volleyball and basketball with trampoline leaps that let you achieve Mario Brothers air times. Rock climbing is also available for those who prefer the traditional pastimes pioneered by our cave-dwelling forefathers. Since Laser Adventure offers convenient weekend hours, arriving early will ensure a full day of laser battling. The laser lair is open by reservation only Monday–Wednesday, but hours may change in the summer.
