Hinkle Family Fun Center houses a multitude of yawn-busting attractions, from the whimsical Bumper Boats and Miniature Golf courses to a futuristic Lazer Tag arena and Virtual Reality pods. Under the direction of the Hinkles, the park has blossomed into a veritable utopia of thrills and amusements for all ages. Waterfalls douse bumper boats, paintballs explode in bursts of neon aqua across a 13,500-square-foot arena, and hidden obstacles spell the end of all but the craftiest golf balls. Indoors, the Nickel City Game Room and Prize Center and Fun Center Game Room and Prize Center brim with more than 200 games and more than 1,000 prizes, and strobe lights illuminate chest packs found throughout the laser-tag arena.

Holiday Bowl’s shiny, modern pin farm features 32 lanes with automatic scoring and, for those bowlers still on their training balls, optional automatic bumpers. The family-friendly atmosphere extends to the blinking, flashing arcade complete with classics such as air hockey, Ridge Racer, and all the nostalgic light-gun-blasting games from youthful Saturday afternoons of yore.
Leisure Bowl provides a clean, smoke-free environment for flinging heavy objects down lanes in a way that won't disrupt parades or injure tandem cyclists. Bowlers will enjoy honing their tossing techniques and pin-smashing prowess without building backyard lanes and attempting to convince census takers to reset the pins. In addition to enjoying the lustrous, buttery-smooth lanes, bowlers can grab tasty grub at JT’s Deli and Pizzeria, a refreshing pint at Ed’s Pub, and high-quality equipment at John Young's Pro Shop (none included with your Groupon, though).
There are numerous sides to every story, and that's certainly the case when it comes to man's mastery of the atom. The National Museum Of Nuclear Science & History chronicles the events before, during, and after the Manhattan Project brought about the atomic bomb and thrust the world into the nuclear age. The museum gives equal weight to both the bad and good, from the tensions of the Cold War to the benefits that nuclear technology has brought to modern medicine.
The kids and adults bouncing off the trampoline floors and walls at Cool Springz Trampoline Park probably don't realize that they're getting low-impact workouts and improving their balance and core strength. That's because the 18,000-square-foot facility has been designed for fun, with a foam pit that welcomes catapulting bodies into its cushy depths. Visitors enhance their aim in the dodgeball and basketball areas, and smaller kids play safely in their own separate children's jump area. At 7 p.m., "Lights Out" events welcome jumpers to music and colored lighting. The park also hosts corporate, group, and church events, as well as birthday parties that include a visit with Jax, a red-eyed tree frog.
