At Fast Lane Indoor Kart Racing, low-riding Sodi go-karts, careen around the winding track at 40 miles per hour, powered by Honda GX270 engines. These karts suspend drivers inches from the ground, which—according to staff—gives them the sensation of 80-mile-per-hour speeds without the hassle of putting a saddle on a cheetah. After a driving-and-safety briefing, riders don full-face helmets before starting the 10-minute race. Spectators can keep an eye on lap times on the electronic scoreboard and on monitors scattered throughout the facility, each measuring times to the thousandth of a second.

At Gameworld, fun materializes in a variety of forms, from bowling to arcade games modeled after sporty endeavors and amusement park rides. Bowlers launch spheres down regulation-size lanes or the abbreviated alleys of a replica of Highway 66, featuring mini lanes striped with a highway median that cater specifically to toddlers, but can entertain competitors of all ages. After lifting bowling balls, gamers can cool down in the arcade, a haven for a veritable timeline of electronic adversaries from yesteryear's Pac-Man to modern Daytona racecars, as well as air hockey and a small climbing wall. The MaxFlight Simulator reigns supreme among its peers, emulating the jolting twists and turns of a rollercoaster ride without the annoyance of picking bugs off of teeth. Players refuel at Perky's Pizza with crispy slices or entire pies made to order, which can also power kids through bowling birthday parties that include bowling, gaming, and goody bags.

Featured on local Fox 12 News, Bounce offers physical activities for families with its bounce houses and obstacle courses. The anti-gravity facility encourages kids and parents to get active, eschewing video games, which render players stationary and more likely to become mothball carriers. Once inside the hyperactive interior, visitors can sample from a variety of springy stunts, including the Velcro wall, slide, and bounce castle. An adult bounce house and kiddie play area keep things organized, but all-out malarkey ensues when parents and kids duke it out with Sumo wrestling suits, cartoon-proportion boxing gloves, and American Gladiator–style jousting. A concessions stand with café seating offers snacks to replenish calories, and free WiFi is available to settle heated debates over the etymology of fracas.

At The Nampa Rollerdrome, kids and adults speed around a more than 60-year-old wood-floored skating rink flanked by a snack bar, party room, and ample hangout space. Birthday parties fill bellies with pizza in a private room boasting a wall illustration of Mickey Mouse, which mysteriously ages even as revelers remain eternally youthful. Roller-hockey leagues facilitate friendly competition among all age groups, and late-night Friday skate sessions keep in-line wheels in motion till midnight. Gamers can take a break from strenuous rinkmanship in the game room, stocked with air hockey, a crane game, and Ms. Pac-Man, in which players woo an ambitious bachelorette married to her ghost-swallowing career.

The sound of jingling arcade games. The jostling of bumper cars. The smiling horses of a carousel. The sights and sounds of childhood abound at Pojos Family Fun Center, where games and rides have been helping kids make life-long memories since 1974.

Wings Center caters to cartwheeling kids of all ages and experience levels, gracefully catapulting them through the air with team-building cheerleading classes or agility-cultivating gymnastics. Children bound through the nearly 10,000-square-foot facility with an array of gymnastics sessions, tailored to the budding somersaulter’s age and skill level. Newly walking toddlers are guided through Protons lessons by their parents who, taking cues from the instructors, teach them motor-development and spatial-awareness exercises. From ages 2–5, mini funambulists take age-specific classes during which they tumble on soft mats, leap through obstacle courses, bounce on trampolines, and challenge live kangaroos to games of hopscotch. Girls ages 5–18 foster their disparagement of gravity as they master the balance beams and uneven bars. Boys' Sic ‘n Twisted classes give pliable males ages 5–18 space to flip without worrying about getting footprints on the ceiling.
