  • Terrapin Adventures
    Terrapin Adventures never fails to live up to its name—even their swing set gets the stomach fluttering with excitement. To be fair, though, the swing in question is anything but the traditional apparatus you'd find at a city park. It seats three people and starts its trajectory 40 feet above the ground, generating 2Gs of force as it swishes riders back and forth over the landscape. The park's other attractions are equally exhilarating. On the high ropes course, visitors attached to sturdy safety harnesses cross 18 traverses situated between lofty platforms; some must be tackled via a rickety bridge, while others require leaps of faith. The 43-foot high climbing tower offers 10 routes up and down, including a head-first downward climb over the Rainbow Serpent. Otherwise, the 330-foot-long zipline sends visitors gliding through the treetops at speeds of up to 20 mph, fast enough to beat the USA track team's star squirrel.

  • ClimbZone USA
    Climb up the rigging of a pirate's ship, grapple your way up through a wall-sized game of Tetris, scale the face of Mount Rushmore?and then let gravity gently lower you to the ground. ClimbZone USA's more than 70 whimsical indoor climbs capture the imagination before the ascent even begins, but the big attraction isn't the colorful trees, blocks, and stone-faced presidents. An auto-belay system puts even the youngest climbers in charge of their own journeys upward, carefully lowering them back to earth when they've reached their level. Spirits climb nearly as high as the guests themselves, thanks to the birthday parties, snacks on hand, and endorphins generated from the healthy workout a climb provides.

As a location scout, Hobgood recorded her finds with a camera, carefully composing each shot in order to convey each scene’s mood, landscape, and lighting. Today, she teaches others how to hone a similarly discerning eye during instructive photo expeditions.
