Scallywag Tag's arena dazzles eyes with a black-lit, neon-tinged pirate ship and 18th-century Caribbean village, which provides a labyrinth of fluorescent walls for marauding swashbucklers. After being split into two competing crews, participants receive a vest, a phaser, and instructions to tally as many points as possible by tagging opponents, swarming the enemy's home base, or holding a referee hostage until he or she doctors the score. The score itself is broadcast on wide-screen LCD scoreboards, but those who are too busy taking out the adversary to look at them can take heart knowing that at the end of the game, the referees announce the winning team.

Outside the fast-paced laser-tag arena, Scallywag Tag encourages visitors to recharge with a drink or a slice of pizza from the snack bar. The arcade sections also distract patrons by featuring perennial classics such as air hockey as well as new favorites, including Time Crisis 3 and Find That W2 Form.

The West-side location additionally lures younger passersby with a pirate-themed jump house and a 35-foot-long slide in the family entertainment center. The West-side’s black-light miniature golf tests hand-eye coordination skills, leading guests through a gauntlet of 18 holes that similarly embrace the pirate theme.

Beneath glimmering disco balls and colorful graffiti murals, roller skaters of all ages and experience levels careen across the hardwood floors of Fun Factory Roller Skating's indoor rink. The kid-friendly melodies of Radio Disney serenade pint-size skaters each Saturday morning, and top pop ballads resound across the rink on Saturday and Sunday nights. Gearing up patrons for wheeled motion, the onsite shop equips patrons with skates for rent or purchase, though customers are responsible for feeding and watering them.

Beyond the rink, the facility's sizeable arcade engages thumbs, and a bounce house ricochets lively lads and lasses off colorful, cushioned walls. After an action-packed day of exertion, guests can refuel at the concession stand with pizza and snacks. The center opens its facilities for private parties, field trips, and fundraisers while frequently inviting costumed characters to interact with kids and talk Wall Street with adults.

Cherry Grove Lanes embraces the changing of the seasons with both indoor and outdoor areas dedicated to group recreation. During the warmer months, the alley raises the nets on seven sand volleyball courts. Primed for nighttime play, the well-lit courts rest beside an open-air lounge that accommodates groups with colorful parasols, shaded tables, and ample room for airborne chest bumps.

Indoors, Cherry Grove Lanes provides solace from summertime sweats and wintertime gusts with 34 synthetic bowling lanes and a pub equipped with dartboards and pool tables. The lanes host fall and summer leagues for adults, seniors, and children, as well as bowling instruction from four-time PBA national titlist Brian Himmler. The staff also fires up sandwiches, appetizers, and pizza to prevent guests from cracking open bowling balls in hopes of reaching the tasty nougat cores.

When you think of Cincinnati, you might not imagine live palm trees, white ocean sands, and tumbling waterfalls, but all of those sights can be found throughout The Beach's water park. With more than 40 different slides and attractions intended for guests of all ages and interests, the park provides entire days' worth of sun-soaked leisure and excitement. Here are a handful of the available attractions:


Water Slides

  • Big Kahuna: This water slide plunges riders through 500 feet of fast-paced twists, turns, and drops, and a final drop down one last hill into a pool.
  • The Cliff: Five stories. Three seconds. That's the power of gravity, which makes this slide the closest thing to a controlled free fall in the entire water park.
  • Hang Ten: This completely enclosed slide sends guests on a blind ride through the twists and turns with only the occasional bit of starbursts before the final splashdown.
  • Click here to see even more thrill rides.


    Sites to Relax

    • Kokomo Lazy River: Inner tubes float with a gentle current along this 1,200-foot loop, which winds throughout the park and gives visitors a chance to enjoy the sunshine as well as the views.
    • Paradise Cove: Sculpted rock formations, verdant palm trees, and soothing waterfalls surround the cove's central pool, which is heated to 80 degrees. There's always the option to simply sunbathe on one of the lounge chairs.
    • Rental Cabanas: Accommodating up to eight people, these shady cabanas provide an ideal base camp for groups looking to duck out of the heat for a bit.

      • Big Surf Wave Pool: Recreating the vibe of a tropical beach, this wave pool routinely sends 750,000 gallons of heated water careening toward the shore—spectators can safely watch from the shade of a cozy cabana.
      • Sand Volleyball: Returning to the land, guest can take to the sandy volleyball courts to dry off and practice their bumping, setting, and spiking skills.
