  • Sky Drifters Hot Air Ballooning
    If you've ever tried to beat rush-hour traffic by tethering your car with helium-filled balloons, then you know that hot-air flight should be left to the professionals. The Federal Aviation Administration–certified pilots at Sky Drifters Hot Air Ballooning embark on journeys from the Sierra Nevada foothills daily, and their company has been named one of the 10Best attractions in Sacramento. Whether piloting a small group or private flight, the balloon captains show passengers a bird’s-eye view of the rolling hills, winding rivers and finely crafted comb-overs whose majesty can only be truly appreciated from above. Their aerial transports also play host to weddings in the sky and can provide a lift to those who enjoy BASE jumping from the clouds.

  • Future Eagles Aviation
    The FAA-certified instructors at Future Eagles Aviation put clients behind the controls of actual aircraft as they teach them the ins and outs of aviation. Students amass skills such as navigation and cockpit familiarity on the ground in adventure flight school before lifting off in a Cessna 172 training aircraft for 30 minutes of flight time. Kids can also take to the sky during Future Eagles Aviation’s youth aviation summer camp, a weeklong foray into the world of cloud skimming and Peter Pan mimicry during which kids aged 10 and older practice on simulators and log real flight hours in training aircraft.

  • Rugged Races
    Rugged Maniac 5K Obstacle Race sends runners into an obstacle-filled odyssey of muddy endurance. The 5-kilometer course features more than epic 25 obstacles, with participants scaling towers of stacked shipping containers, crawling through underground tunnels, and leaping over fire. After the race, live music and cold beer invite triumphant runners to unwind. Those with excess energy can head over to even more kinetic activities such as mechanical bull riding, beach volleyball, and adult-sized bounce houses.

  • Heartstoppers Haunted House
    A little bit of the Wild West still survives in Heartstoppers Haunted House, except that "survives" implies that its inhabitants are living. Visitors first find themselves in the heart of the Deadlands, a town once and still terrorized by the murderous gunslinger, Cyrus Lynch. His zombified victims, freed from their shallow graves, now inhabit the saloons and general stores, seeking revenge on their killer and someone who can figure out how to make the player piano play anything other than "Old Susanna." Interlopers duck into Dr. Lash's Sideshow for relief, only to to find themselves surrounded by grotesque oddities and threatened by the mad doctor's unstable son, Billy. In their haste to leave town, the visitors stumble through the Tomb of Shadows—a dark, winding maze with a gauntlet of surprises—and into Steamghást Asylum, the abandoned rehabilitation center for the area's criminals. Overrun by insane doctors and bloodthirsty killers, the medical monstrosity of steam and electricity still reverberates with the screams of unwilling test subjects.

  • Hangtown Motocross Classic
    Shouts rise from stands, above the clouds of dust, as motocross racers arc through the air, off the hill and back onto the dirt track. It's the Hangtown Motocross Classic, sponsored by GoPro, where race fans cheer their favorites as they rip through hairpin turns towards the finish line. Legendary match-ups have gone down, among them Bob Hannah vs. Marty Smith. In the morning, timed practice sessions for both men and women preview the day's events. Later, both men and women race on 250 and 450 class bikes, fighting to qualify for that evening's Winners Circles or at least the last slice of pizza. Visitors can check the website for track conditions.

  • Jeff Putnam's Fly Fishing School
    To Jeff Putnam, fly-fishing isn't just a sport; it's also his work, his leisure, and a large part of his identity. He first pulled on fly-fishing gear at the age of 11, and at 16 began guiding fishermen through the trout- and bass-inhabited waters of Northern California. Since then, he's also worked as a fisherman's guide in Montana and Colorado and cast his line over waters as far away as Belize and Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean. During group and private lessons, Jeff demonstrates fly-fishing techniques before participants try them out themselves. With his guidance, they learn many ways to hook finned prey from streams and lakes, or to snag inflatable rafts from neighbor's swimming pools.
