Aurora Roller Skate Center's gleaming wooden rink beckons wheel-hitched feet to orbit its oblong track beneath glowing white globe lamps. Gather four friends or nine members of the Walton family and lace up classic four-wheel skates before gliding through daily open-skate sessions (upgrade to inline skates for additional fee). A slew of special events and theme nights fill the skate center with movie and costume parties, and DJ Suave Smooth electrifies Friday and Saturday evenings with Top 40 hits and Schubert dirges that bellow through the rink's stentorian speakers as colorful lights flicker across the floor. On the sidelines, retro booths coddle weary gams, and skaters nosh on pizza and slushes from the snack bar or fawn over new trinkets from the novelty shop.

Save for the toy store and a forest of weeping willow trees, there are few places to go where kids feel more comfortable than adults. Kidz Funland, a soft-play indoor playground, is one of them. Kids shed their shoes to scramble to the tops of slides and climb into the upper-level ball pit. Other obstacles challenge balance and coordination by adding movement to the mix. A carousel of pastel bouncy balls turns with the momentum of little feet, while teddy bears stand sentinel atop a small jungle gym. Parents, meanwhile, join their progenies in the ring, or take a breather at the glossy white counter that overlooks the perimeter of the play area.
