Indoors, Europa Go-Karts & Golf maintains a bustling game room with pool tables, skee-ball, and classic arcade games.
At Centennial Sportsplex, groups of laced-up gliders soar across a 200'x85' rink during public skating sessions. After strapping on chartered hockey or ice skates over thin socks, guests arc in gentle figure eights, practice salchow jumps, and carve complex polyhedrons into the smooth, icy surface. Snacks from the concession stand (available for purchase) quell seismic tummy grumbles mustered up after speed skating across the rink's frozen tundra. Visitors can store their worldly possessions in coin lockers or tote along their own padlocks to take advantage of complimentary lockers. Centennial Sportsplex recommends wearing a jacket or sweater in the rink, which at times feels as chilly as the snub of a popular snowman.
