  • Climbmax Climbing Gym
    Climbers cling to large, composite structures, strategizing their way up the side of a rocky cliff. They have come to conquer Climbmax Climbing Gym's myriad rock-face combinations and master the art of blindfolded belaying on thick, padded floors. Before challenging themselves on the climb-through cave or scaling an overhang, climbers slip into a harness and climbing shoes for safety. In addition to climbing areas geared toward beginners and advanced climbers, a children's area features its own pint-sized climb-through cave where youngsters learn to appreciate all aspects of the stimulating sport. Thick padding covers the floors of each climbing area, ensuring safe landings and comfortable, celebratory belly flops from the wall's summit.

  • Peregrine Expeditions
    The veteran athletes at Peregrine Expeditions nurture their already intimate relationships with Mother Nature during skiing and climbing excursions into the icy peaks of Mount Baker or jagged rock faces of Mount Erie. Backcountry skiing courses hone snow-skimming techniques, and intense skiing tours toe the border between the United States and Canada on two-day treks that embark each morning from a hut at base camp. Adrenaline junkies foray into Forbidden Peak for two or three days, conquering the ins and outs of navigating ice, performing mountaintop rescues, and backpacking in challenging conditions. Kid-specific expeditions tone tiny muscles and teach bird calls used to ask eagles the way to the nearest latrine as youngsters grouped by age engage in courses that span one to five days.

  • Love'n The Kitchen
    Love’n The Kitchen’s experienced staff members and a rotating lineup of guest chefs, including a James Beard Award winner, take up to 50 students on gustatory journeys crafting three-course meals. Each class springboards off a theme, such as breakfast in bed, gluten-free dishes, and six-ingredient recipes, as up to 50 audience members look on, pick up tips, and ask the chefs questions. Students—who range from gourmands to kitchen-shy newbies—leave with the recipes from the class so that they can re-create the meals at home. The school also offers private and offsite classes, leading cooking parties in patrons’ homes, on outdoor kitchens, or during food-truck drag races.

  • Fear Farm
    Fear Farm produces scares on a industrial level, with five haunted attractions in addition to a sprawling corn maze. Each spooky lair has a theme; bloody, demonic serial killers stalk through Chainsaw Mayhem, while crazed clowns wreak havoc in the Mouth of Madness. Alternatively, less human threats populate the twisting, dark tunnels of Descent or Undead. When the scares overwhelm, visitors can retreat to the entertainment midway or into the six-acre corn maze, which is only scary if you're exploring it with a high-school principal.
