Chase Carpets overhauls foot space with toe-cuddling carpeting and carpet stretching for already-there rugs. Massage tired tootsies with a bevy of cushy carpeting, such as Shaw's Northern Parkway or Wish List floor furs, available in a variety of colors ($300 for 144 sq. ft. or $500 for 250 sq. ft., including pad, installation, and tax). These foot-tickling fibers arrive complete with a one-year warranty on their multistep installation process. Or give tired treads a facelift with whole-house carpet stretching (a $3/yd. value, up to 100 sq. yd. with this deal). Ideal for wrinkled, worn, or constantly frowning wall-to-walls, carpet stretching eradicates ripples from rooms by unfastening, trimming, and retacking a home's existing floor-coats.
Momentarily out of gravity's grasp, athletes of all ages perform midair somersaults and backflip off walls in Jump Street's vast trampoline arena, covered top to bottom in springy surfaces and safe padding. An open court and dodge-ball field invite hoppers aged 8 or older to practice high-altitude aim, and younger jumpers can frolic through a forest of inflatables set along a rubbery fault line in the earthquake zone. Measured in one-hour increments, all heart-pumping jump sessions begin on the hour or half hour. Jump Street's fun passes grant all-inclusive access to the foam pit, bull ride, inner-tube snow slope, and vinyl maze, which turns visitors into navigators and Olympic-level minotaur slayers.
