Forty-eight gleaming, wooden lanes shimmer under bright lights as polished, multicolored bowling balls careen toward pins waiting at the other end. As friends, families, and bitter enemies take aim and release balls, flat-panel scoreboards automatically update scores alongside irresponsibly hilarious monikers. Occasionally, glow bowling dazzles the senses with pumping music, heady fog, and magnificent laser-light shows. Beyond bowling, guests can also amuse themselves at one of the Billiard Hall?s 5 full-size pool tables, play their favorite tunes on the room?s private music system, or hit up the on-site pro shop to get tips, equipment, or inspiration for a new juggling routine. They can also grab a bite on site at The All-American Sports Pub, a space known for its HD TVs, karaoke nights, and the occasional rowdy round of pong or bar trivia.

The Zombie Mud Run finally gives people an incentive to exercise—the survival of their species. Amid forested trails, muddy creeks, and challenging obstacles, participants of this post-apocalyptic 5K face off to either save the human race or feast on human flesh, respectively. Clad in a flag-football belt with three flags that represent their brains, heart, and entrails, human participants race to get themselves and their fellow living athletes to the Green Zone, which grants salvation in the form of food, water, music, and beer. Meanwhile, costumed zombies—each of whom are either slow-moving “creepers” or fast-moving “leapers”—positioned along the race course pursue the humans to devour their organs or simply return that contact lens they dropped a mile ago. Human runners who reach the Green Zone with at least one of their flags survive.

A driver curls his fingers around the steering wheel, takes a deep breath, and places his foot onto the peddle, bringing a mechanical beast to life. The screech of burning rubber, roar of an 500-horsepower engine, and the silent rush of adrenaline block out the rest of the world, allowing the driver to focus entirely on the run. As he battles the g-force, the realization hits that he has just achieved a lifelong dream: He is a drag racer. Doug Foley first noticed the lack of a comprehensive drag-racing training center in 1997, and he took it upon himself to fill the void. Along with a team of instructors, Foley lets novices ride shotgun or drive themselves to taste drag racing for the first time. Once the new racers are hooked, a lineup of beginner to advanced classes licenses students for everything from junior dragsters, to door cars and A-fueled dragsters. Through these efforts, Foley and his team ready drivers to compete in professional races and fulfill a dream.

At MMAXOUT Fitness, certified trainers fuse high-impact circuit workouts with the punishing training techniques of MMA fighters. A sample class might find students transitioning from slicing upper cuts through the air to dropping down and pounding out mountain climbers and muay thai elbow strikes against a pad on the ground. Each week focuses on a different muscle group, helping participants build a balanced, toned body. Instructors challenge their students to dig deep, leading the charge through vocal shouts of encouragement and silent yet stirring kabuki movement pieces.

When paintballers feel ready for action but aren't sure where they'd like to do battle, they point their browsers to www.paintballpromos.com. There they'll find packages for nearby paintball fields, so they don't have to litter their own backyards with empty oil barrels and fill tiny water balloons with tempera paint. Packages usually include the rental of a marker and mask; paintballs and air fills are an extra charge at the field.
