Glowing boundary rails line the pitch-black corridors of Lunar Mini Golf's putting surfaces, guiding mini golfers and their orbs across a black-lit dreamscape surrounded by neon flourishes. As players attempt to sink hole-in-ones, the vibrant course thwarts their efforts with topsy-turvy surfaces, jutting ridges, and a gallery of luminous animals and bug-eyed aliens whispering commentary from inside the walls. Guests can become mobile accoutrements in the phosphorescent scenery by snagging necklaces and other glow-in-the-dark knickknacks available for sale, helping players identify opponents' movements and accentuate celebratory dances with glow-stick flair. The course's darkened alleys provide fun, casual outings for players of all abilities, as well as an eclectic venue for the birthday parties of future adults.

Determined to keep their students interested and engaged, the instructors of Wine and Palette hold classes at myriad locations throughout the city. Each class focuses on a different art piece, be it a painting of a stained-glass window, a multihued owl, or an autumn farm scene. Additionally, each artist brings their own outlook and skills to the class, helping students learn specific brush strokes and how to touch up their daily driver so it looks just like the sheriff’s squad car.

While Trail of Fear is now Oklahoma's largest haunted attraction, Hauntworld.com reveals that the original format was a small, roadside hay maze operated by a father and son in 1998. Today, a three-story pyramid looms above the theme park's frightful environs and prowling actors. Creators Bob Wright Sr. and Bob Wright Jr. supervise a staff of more than 100?a vast increase from their first crew of approximately 15 people and a few rusty table fans?as they guide visitors through four nightmarish worlds. Though the majority of these helpers return to the job each season with fiendish devotion, their strategies for harvesting screams evolve every year to surprise even the most loyal fans.

Between the two locations there are five haunted attractions, including a maniacal ringmaster overseeing the disorienting maze and murderous clowns of Cirque de Morte, malformed test subjects rising from The Experiment's excavation and lab sites, and performers injecting dark humor into their classic sideshow acts at the Thunderbird Trail of Fear.

On the Halloween Midway, Boo House BBQ supplies fuel for brave souls in the form of burgers and brisket. Fairground games embrace macabre twists; past activities include a severed-head toss and live-zombie target practice. For younger children, Pumpkin Junction entertains with scary stories and magic tricks on select nights. A portion of Trail of Fear's proceeds go to benefit a specific charity every year, contributing thousands of dollars to community causes.

They teach many of these lessons at the aptly named Kite Point, getting students up and surfing in what they consider one of the best kiteboarding spots around.

To further help students reach their kiteboarding goals, they sell a variety of new and used kites, gear, and bottled wind.
