You’ve seen free-fall stunts pulled off in the movies, and now Thrillz entertainment center is inviting you to experience the same exhilarating action firsthand. From 3D climbing walls, 70 feet of zip lines and a giant rotating sweeper, to a 360-degree virtual reality roller coaster and an Indiana Jones-style rolling log, the park offers something for both the young and the young at heart.

For an event like no other, the 70,000-square-foot facility houses a variety of activities that invite guests to experience the sense of free-falling from two-story obstacles onto giant stuntman airbags. Test your mettle on a swinging circus trapeze, or jump and dodge a giant sweeper, all while completely unharnessed and guided by Thrillz team leaders the entire time.

“We knew we had developed a game changing experience,” says co-founder Lisa Cannon. The lack of a harness really captures the feeling of free falling. “A lot of team activities are boring, this really gives you an opportunity to laugh at, or with, each other in a unique bonding experience.”

Lower impact activities include ax-throwing, giant dodgeball and wireless laser tag—a favorite among groups.

Thrillz offers groups a truly unique and rewarding experience. “An engaged workforce is a productive workforce; corporate events enhance synergy in the workplace by placing employees in an environment where they must rely on one another,” says Cannon. Every group event is customizable, providing the option to choose from two or three activities, as well as catering for any of Thrillz’ large meeting and event rooms. Pricing varies on your choice of “fly time,” while other attractions start at a set rate as low as $5 per person.

The Pacific Northwest is now home to a new and unique subterranean event space: The Sanctuary at The Society Hotel Bingen in Bingen, Washington. This one-of-a-kind dome-shaped building is tucked into a hillside in the northeast corner of the hotel property, which is located in the Columbia River Gorge.

The Sanctuary is now accepting reservations for wellness retreats and private groups for yoga, meditation, qigong, musical performances, sound healing, dance parties and more.

 

In 1919, the Red Cross Convalescent House at Vancouver Barracks was dedicated. The house provided comfort for patients at the Vancouver Barracks hospital in Vancouver, Washington. Two years later, it became the noncommissioned officers club and service club. Today, the historic property is known simply as the Red Cross Building and serves as a beautiful backdrop for special events.
