The entertainment venues have some exciting offerings. The Comedy Scene will have you in stitches with live shows. For hands-on gaming, grab a seat at one of the 100 gaming stations at Helix eSports. Intrepid adventure seekers will love flying through the indoor skydiving venue, Freedom Wind Tunnel (opening soon). The Showcase Cinema De Lux is the spot for viewing all the must-see movies. Splitsville Luxury Lanes and Topgolf Swing Suite offer some active entertainment for the more competitive crowd.
Outdoor enthusiasts will love wandering through Bass Pro Shops eyeing all the outdoor toys. Fishing, boating, hunting, camping―they have it all. Behind Bass Pro Shops is the Nature Trail and Ocean Spray Cranberry Bog. The half-mile nature trail meanders through a seven-acre bog. Along the walk are educational signs explaining the history of the bog and its ecosystem.
