Synergy Woods

Reviewed By sunjewel2015 - Cleveland, Ohio

Went with a group on a Saturday for paintball. Had reservations. Check-in process was smooth. You can sign waivers via on-line before you arrive. We had a mixed group of novices to die-hards...everyone was happy with the range of play. Games are about 10 minutes each, with referees going through the rules for each game. Game type changes for each round, as does the field so it keeps things interesting. People come & go from your group as the day goes on,,, so you add new players too. Everyone had a blast ! You can upgrade your equipment at anytime to make it interesting. This was the first time my kids had played and I found this to be a very well-run, family friendly operation. We will be back! Ziplining is offered too. Concession stand, and you can order pizza.

Try birdwatching from either the observation area or on a hike.

Aut-O-Rama Twin Drive In Theatre

Reviewed By cfox518 - North Ridgeville, Ohio

How rare drive-in theaters have become across the country. Have you ever seen those clips at the beginning of the movie where they show the statistics and photos of all the drive-in theaters that have closed? It's devastatingly sad; however, Aut-O-Rama Twin Drive In Theatre is anything but sad. I have fond memories of the drive-in theater throughout my childhood. Given the option for a regular movie theater, I would choose the drive-in every time. It is open from early Spring through late Fall with current titles being played on both screens. They do a great job! In recent years they changed their policy prohibiting outside food and beverage, but their snack bar has a plethora of options! It is a little over-priced, but you are supporting the operation of the theater through your food/beverage purchases. The entrance fee itself is affordable (especially since it covers two movies). And you get to enjoy this all from the comfort of your own car. Local staple. Hidden gem. Come on a clear summer night with the family!

Sundae Funday's is family owned and operated! We have ice cream, delicious handmade pizza, and who could forget the mini golf course out back?!? Stop in, grab some pizza, play on our newly themed Wild West Mini Golf course, and enjoy an ice cream while you take a stroll through the Columbia Reservation of the Lorain County Metro Parks. We look forward to seeing you soon!! Look for the owl!

I have held 3 work events here over the years. They are very organized and make the planning process very easy! They use The Cuyahoga Group for their catering and their food is good. I buy the passes for everyone so they can enjoy the majority of the park. We also get a free scoop of ice cream with our package. They make it homemade and it is really good! Always a fun time!

Common Ground Canopy Tours

Reviewed By J A B

Awesome experience!! They teach and ease you into the experience with 'ground school'. The ziplines start out low and by the time you get to the highest and the end we were wishing it wasn't over. Our guides, Sara and Jess were great!!! This is one adventure you can't miss. Plus it's super reasonable!

Grey Hawk Golf Club

Reviewed By Kenneth_Smith - Stirling, United Kingdom

I played the talon which was seriously tough but great fun. The service from start to finish was incredible and the staff must all come from a modelling agency.
The club house is fantastic as was the food and service.
The front nine is challenging; and my favourite hole had to be the 5th sentinel a fantastic wee par 3.
Now I was two down at the turn and pulled it back to one down and arrived at the 17th 56 degree lob and landed it 1 yard from the pin! Best shot off the day. Loved the 12 and 13 great holes!
Could go on all day!

Allen Memorial Art Museum

Reviewed By Darrell L - Broadview Heights, Ohio

The Allen Memorial Art Museum is a great gem of a museum. One wouldn't think that a college campus would house as impressive A colletion of art as Oberlin College. When my friend and I visited, the contemporary galleries were closed for an exhibit installation. That didn't deter us as a sampling of the contemporary art was on display, including two Warhol pieces. The museum also houses a small, but mighty, collection of religious art from the Renaissance, Japanese prints, African art, and more. It may not be as large as the well-known art museums of the world but this Italianate building is no less impressive.

Beriswill Farms

Reviewed By brimil - Tampa, Florida

This family owned farm in Valley City OH offer a great experience for children to experience a farm for the first time. The farm maintains a year round market with fresh produce and hormone free meat raised right there on the property. We were there in the fall when the farm offers hay rides, a play area and one of the states best corn mazes.

The maze is a 2+ mile walk to hit all the stations in the grown-up portion (there is a smaller kids size course with it's own set of 6 check points). The theme this year was a "clue style" who don it mystery involving a dozen check point to solve the crime. After about 2 hours of bumping around we solve the puzzle and skipped over to the farm house to get our candy prizes!

We opted to visit on a sunny Sunday afternoon but if you're looking for even more of a challenge, the maze is opened after dark near Halloween (till 10pm).

Sandy Ridge Reservation

Reviewed By Bob D - Bay Village, Ohio

We had not been to this hidden treasure in a couple years and once we got there we could not understand why since we are are only about twenty minutes from it. This is an absolutely beautiful wetlands that is teeming with wildlife. The facilities and grounds are meticulously maintained and it is just a wonderful place to visit and walk. Highly recommended.
