Big Time Trampoline Fun Center's sprawling facility has a variety of attractions that encourage active fun for all ages. Patrons can bounce across large tracts of floor-level trampolines or participate in dodge ball on a trampoline court. Other attractions include a foam pit with a rope swing, a maze, a playground for children, an arcade, and a parents' lounge complete with wireless internet and television.
Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $9.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $3.99 value).
Established in 1908, Lakeside Amusement Park maintains its turn-of-the-century charm while embracing modern amenities and attractions. An adrenaline-pumping drop tower and a slew of neon-hued, spinning rides contrast the classic joy of a wooden roller coaster, which rises from its perch near the lake.
The all-ages park also comprises Kiddies' Playland, a place where tots can get their fun fix on boats, animal-themed rides, and pint-sized motorcycles. The facility also accommodates large groups with on-site picnic grounds perfect for birthday parties or applesauce fights.
It's fast. It's fun. It's for the kids. Dance Dash 5K participants can walk or run the race, but everyone stops along the way to learn a new way to move. It might be a swing dance, a line dance, a hip-hop dance, or the secret steps of the Hokey Pokey. At the end of the race, the whole group brings their brand-new skills together for a huge, flash-mob dance party. It's all to benefit Children's Specialized Hospital, a Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. As they raise additional fund through their personal fundraising page, participants can unlock incentives at certain levels along the way.
JumpStreet is an indoor trampoline park where taut floors and angled walls made of springy trampoline surfaces beckon children and adults to bounce back and forth or try aerodynamic flips and gravity-defying leaps. The arena is structured like a skateboard park, though bouncers don’t need any equipment to hop across the wall-to-wall planes or climb up, slide down, or spring off the tilted trampoline walls, which can also be used to recreate the summer Olympics’ popular trampoline belly-flop event. Guests can hop on over to the springy dodgeball courts, where safe, competitive play is enhanced with ample bouncing, and arcades and batting cages offer engaging activities for those who need to rest their feet. Scattered across JumpStreet’s various locations are an assortment of other safe, kinetic activities, including a bull ride, a multicolored maze, and a foam pit.
At X-Arena, the young and the young at heart never lack for things to do. There, the 5,000-sq.-ft. arena brims more than 75 games and activities conducted in ball pits, on climbing apparatuses, atop jousting platforms, on arcing swings, and within obstacle courses. Demonstrated and overseen by friendly staffers, these challenging activities beckon kids to have fun while simultaneously boosting their endurance, improving their balance, and building their coordination. Adults and teens can work out their own gladiatorial fantasies, too, throwing themselves into the high-energy activities during drop-in times or as part of larger parties or team-building events.
