At Boomers!, thrill-seeking families and fun-enabling friends can attack a variety of appealing attractions, including mini golf, batting cages, bumper boats, and the button-mashing joys housed inside the exhilarating game room. The Vista location entertains families of sharpshooters with a blacklight-illuminated laser-tag arena before little ones climb and crawl through the Kidopolis play area. The El Cajon and San Diego locations let rivals celebrate the spirit of competition as they fly past each other in speedy go-karts or have a snail-paced Ferris wheel race at the kid's county fair. Unlimited pass holders at the El Cajon location can also scale the 32-foot-tall climbing wall, which, like America, enables citizens to climb to the top via myriad routes.

While zipping around Xceleration Indoor Kart Racing's indoor go-kart track, there's only one thing drivers have to worry about: the competition. That's because the Italian-made go-karts are completely electric-powered, from their 48-volt engines to the lightning bolts that turn each kart on, which means they never release emissions.

Still, the speedy karts easily burn rubber inside Xceleration's 50,000-square-foot air-conditioned center, whose track is modeled after those used in Formula 1 races. Drivers can stop by for some quick laps or, in groups, partake in grand-prix-style competitions—after which the top three finishers receive trophies and pose for photos on a winner's podium. Drivers then unwind with soft drinks from Xceleration's concessions stand or games of pool inside the arcade.

People looking for a quick dip or dramatic splash have plenty of options at Wet 'n' Wild Palm Springs. Not only does the water park feature two chutes that send riders on a high-speed trip from the peak of a seven-story tower, it also harbors a massive, 800,000-gallon wave pool. This is because Wet 'n' Wild Palm Springs strives to cool off people of all stripes?whether they're looking for an adrenaline boost or hoping to work on their driftwood impression. For the former are slides for children of all sizes, while the latter can chat and tan as they effortlessly float along a 600-foot lazy river.

The water park stretches onto land, too. Lounge chairs let visitors soak up the sun while snacking on ice cream and pizza, and canopy-covered cabanas wait for groups seeking a private place to regroup between rides.
