The night after John Chacko, a hardworking man about to realize his dream, purchased the Jimmy's Central Lanes bowling alley, a roiling flood ripped over the banks of the Susquehanna River and destroyed the site. As a solitary man standing amid the wreckage, it would have been easy to walk away, but that wasn't his style. Instead, he rolled up his sleeves, ripped down the walls, and pulled up the floors. Not even a nail could be salvaged, but his love for the alley was still fully intact.

Today, it's hard to believe Chacko's was once under water. New lanes run as far as the eye can see, marked by fluorescent purples and blues, and a Memory Lane Lounge offers respite with draft beer and flat-screen TVs. But Dan Chacko still remembers the deluge. Bowling-alley patrons can stop into his pro shop and pick his brain about that breathtaking flood, or they can seek his advice on bowling-related matters such as how to pick up a split or how to match your wardrobe to your bowling shoes.

Since opening with a Frank Sinatra performance in 1990, the stadium now known as Times Union Center has seen more than 15 million guests pass through its turnstiles. That’s only slightly smaller than the population of the Netherlands and roughly equal to the number of people worldwide who enjoy candy corn. Besides attracting such entertainment titans as the Rolling Stones, U2, Disney’s “On Ice” series, and the Harlem Globetrotters, the multifunction arena is also home to the AHL’s Albany Devils and college basketball’s Siena Saints.

The clatter of fallen pins makes for a great party soundtrack at Stanton Lanes. Kids as young as three can host their birthday celebrations here, and to make sure that they score on the lanes, the staff engages ramps, bumpers, and motivational speakers that follow each rolling ball. Teens also throw parties to the tune of current hit songs, whereas adults gather for pizza- and coffee-fueled soirees. Of course, in the absence of a special event, bowlers arrive to pummel pins during open bowl.

In their 85th season, the Harlem Globetrotters have entertained millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a unique brand of athletic precision and showmanship. For their latest 4 Times the Fun North American tour, the Globetrotters will add new 4-point shot spots located 35 feet from the basket, which is 12 feet farther than the official 3-point line but several thousand miles closer than the prime meridian.

Cut through thick forests in the heart of White Haven, Stone Meadows Golf Course presents visitors with a tree-framed layout that weaves around links-style mounds and bunkers. The course brings water into play on a handful of holes, and multiple sharp dog legs lie in wait to challenge even the most skilled golfers. But competitors at Stone Meadows don't necessarily have to use clubs or slingshots to move balls across the course—they can use their feet, too. The relatively short length of 5,210 yards from the tips makes the course a perfect fit for footgolf, a hybrid of soccer and golf in which players aim to kick a soccer ball into cups in as few shots as possible.

Course at a Glance
