It's dark within Scare House Windsor, and visitors never quite know what lurks down the next hallway or within the next room. A maniacal clown might elicit screams, or a madman may wield his chainsaw until he's offered a job as a lumberjack. Or maybe visitors will run into Shawn Lippert, one of Scare House Windsor's sinister creators. Along with a band of volunteers, Mr. Lippert has crammed horror into every inch of the 20,000-square-foot haunted house, which has become an annual Halloween staple. Mr. Lippert's creation is so authentically spine-tingling, in fact, that he's using it as the setting for a horror film of the same name.

Founded in 1994 as a community-based recreation center, Joe Dumars Fieldhouse is a 100,000-square-foot facility that houses sports leagues and camps in addition to an arcade-equipped entertainment center and an indoor/outdoor restaurant. Dumars' value of sportsmanship lives on through league play and pickup games on one of nine basketball courts and in two full-sized hockey arenas. Camps and clinics provide activity-based instruction to little ones, and the entertainment center's mini-golf and mini-bowling areas host small-scale enjoyment without enforcing miniature-shoe rentals. After rigorous activity, guests can head to Joe's Southern Grill, an arena-themed eatery with tables made from the Pistons' NBA-championship basketball court and a kitchen supervised by head chef Bill Laimbeer.
