  • Paradise Rental Boats
    Paradise Rental Boats carefully curates fleets of Yamaha, Bayliner, and Sun Tracker boats, so that sun-kissed riders can jet across the sparkling waters of Indiana’s Lake Monroe and Georgia’s Lake Lanier and Lake Allatoona at their leisure. The company's vessels range from party barges and yachts—which hold groups of up to 26—to the smaller, two-person WaveRunner, whose highly responsive steering suits drivers trying to chase down and catch their fish dinner. Onboard radios and CD players let mariners groove to their favorite tunes, and the company also rents optional accessories for water sports, such as wakeboards, water skis, and artificial bait for licensed fishermen.

  • Everland Play
    Everland Play is one of the few places where parents encourage kids to run off and join a pirate ship. Though the indoor playground's ship may just be an inflatable obstacle course, children are let loose to pretend to steer or walk the plank. The pirate theme is echoed in pictures of ships and swashbucklers decorating the multilevel play structure, chock full of colorful tunnel slides. Designed by a pair of moms for children ages 12 and under, Everland Play’s inflatables and play units share real estate with several imagination stations. Make-believe aromas waft from pots and pans as kids cook up pretend meals at the cooking station, and the costume corner’s wardrobe transforms kids into crowned princesses and caped superheroes more effectively than fairy dust. As older kids play dress up, wee ones frolic in the separated toddler area’s ball pits.

  • Lake Lanier Islands Harbor Landing
    Anyone with a compass and a good pair of shoes can walk through a forest. Lake Lanier Canopy Tours' guides make it their mission to give lovers of the outdoors a unique view of nature from ziplines and sky bridges that snake through the treetops around Lake Lanier Islands Resort. All in all, 30 ziplines stretch above terra firma to form several distinct paths for exploring the canopy. The Lakeside tour follows four sky bridges and several ziplines that pass over Lake Lanier itself, and the Legacy Night tour takes riders equipped with headlamps and lanterns across seven ziplines. The company's most adventurous excursion, the Pine Isle tour, makes its way across a total of 11 ziplines, including the Duals, twin lines that send riders side by side for 1,500 feet at speeds upwards of 50 miles per hour. Professional guides accompany every adventure to make sure participants are safe as they soar down the lines, traverse sky bridges, and negotiate with eagles for permission to use their trees. All of the tours are designed and built by Association for Challenge Course Technology professionals, and all gear, decks, cables, helmets, and harnesses are certified for safety.

  • Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf
    At Pirates Cove Adventure Golf, 27 challenging holes test the putting skills of players of all ages while steeping them in 18th-century pirate lore. As balls bank off rails and roll between obstacles such as boulders, the greens wind past colorful flower gardens under shady evergreens and a towering pirate ship. Throughout the course, a waterfall cascades into a stream that flows under wooden bridges, recalling how Blackbeard made his prisoners slowly walk the plank before doing a cannonball, for everyone's safety.

  • Monkey Joe's Duluth
    It?s hard to find a monkey to attend a child?s birthday party, and even harder to find a purple one. But at Monkey Joe?s, the furry purple mascot makes an appearance at every child?s party, delighting kids already excited by the inflatable-filled play area. Youngsters whoosh down colorful slides, bounce in jump areas, and build agility in its obstacle courses. While their kids safely frolic on sanitized inflatables supervised by staffers, parents can relax in an adult area with free wi-fi, flat-screen TVs, and computer stations, as well as refreshments at the concession area. Kids 3 years old and under have a separate play area, meaning they can happily play without having to listen to the elderly 11-year-olds talk about ?when I was your age.?

  • Great Play of Johns Creek
    At Great Play, kids are encouraged to break bottles—virtual ones, arranged on virtual shelves—in the center’s Interactive Arena. They are part of a hand-eye coordination game for kids, in which sensors track their “throws” and the computer-generated bottles projected onto the walls fall accordingly. Another version sees kids honing their throwing arms by aiming for an animated strike zone while a simulated crowd cheers. But regardless of the specific games kids play on any given day in the 3,000-square-foot arena, each activity hews to the play center’s overall goal: to build kids’ motor skills and athletic abilities from an early age. Programs for younger kids focus on fundamentals, such as running, skipping, dodging, and tumbling. Meanwhile, athletic camps for older kids build skillsets that come in handy during pick-up games on the playground or at their first Olympic trials at age 3.
