  • ZogSports Minneapolis
    On the morning of September 11, 2001, Robert Herzog dropped off his laundry, picked up his mail, and took the local C train to work instead of the express A train. When he arrived for work at the north World Trade Center tower that morning, nearly 300 of his coworkers were dead. Stunned by his inexplicable escape from death, Herzog battled through his trauma by focusing on the good things in his life. Earlier that year, he met his wife-to-be playing coed softball. He had enjoyed the league but felt he could do better. Tempered by the sense of charity and community that was so ubiquitous after September 11, he opened ZogSports—a sports league that donates 10% of its profits to charity—in 2002. Since then, leagues have spread from New York and the northeast out to Atlanta and the Twin Cities. Casual competitors in their 20s and 30s team up in touch-football leagues and indoor-volleyball leagues, making new friends on the field, at postgame happy hours, and at preseason press conferences. When teams sign up for ZogSports's leagues, they choose a charity to represent. From there, teams compete to win the league championship, come up with the funniest team name, or order the most drinks at the bar after the game, all of which earn them money for their charity of choice. To date, the company has donated more than $1.5 million to various charities.

  • Splat Tag
    To put it plainly, Splat Tag is massive. Twenty-two paintball fields sprawl across its 600 acres. Woods, brush, and felled trees make for strategic cover, and through every patch of forest could be something unexpected. A helicopter, a bunker, or perhaps an enemy base, right there for the taking?provided players have enough paint. The high number of play areas encourages players to linger, as does Splat Tag's policies. Open admission grants unlimited access for the day, with referees setting up 15- to 20-minute games. The fields admit up to 200 players per day, ensuring everyone can find those of similar skill levels. Splat Tag also hosts private and special events, including an annual gathering with enough paintballs to blot out murals of of the sun.

  • Saints North Family Skate Center
    Saints North Family Skate Center offers roller skating, mini golf, laser tag, and myriad other ways to keep the whole family engaged. The skating rink opens up into a smooth and polished oval where skaters of all ages can cruise in time with an entertaining and all-ages soundtrack. There's family fun skating sessions offered during the day and night, where parents and kids can skate side-by-side or watch dad and mom do the hokey pokey and hula hoop. On Wednesday nights, grown-up skatiers can zip around each other on Adults Night. The free mini-golf course makes trading your skates for shoes an enticing option, as does the laser-tag chamber. There's also a snack bar with food and drinks, and a seating area to watch others skaters weave their way around the rink.

  • Devil Ops Airsoft
    It's no easy task to navigate the large warehouse that holds Devil Ops Airsoft. Two separate airsoft fields are like giant mazes, where opponents and their plastic artillery could wait behind each and every corner. The first arena takes the form of fast-paced hallways, where players must change strategies on the fly and resist the urge to quote long speeches from action films. The second arena? A two-level battlefield. Here, players fight their way up and down stairs, then battle for control of multiple rooms. The team at Devil Ops Airsoft runs public games every Saturday and Sunday and they rent out their facility for private events during the week.
