  • Fort Hill Bowling Center
    Fort Hill Bowling Center rings the bell between balls and pins as competitors unleash rotating jabs across fully automated lanes. Each day of the week, the facility resonates with the unabashed point scoring of friendly matches or league play. A snack bar keeps fingers properly fueled, and a video jukebox volunteers to cast a tuneful tone across otherwise thunderous frames. After final point totals are tallied, teams can continue to feed their cravings for spherical competition on a pool table, which is far safer than stealing a rottweiler's tennis ball during games of Steal the Rottweiler's Tennis Ball.

The sound of clattering pins and congratulatory high-fives echoes as bowlers roll strikes down the alley's 32 gleaming lanes.

Every Friday and Saturday, a DJ spins tunes to soundtrack cosmic bowling sessions with requests dominating after 9 p.m. At King Pin Cafe, King Pin Lanes' snack bar, bowlers gather all week long around plates of tater tots or freshly grilled burgers for conciliatory snacks after intense games or bowling shoe insults, while a full-service restaurant and lounge, Midlo's Bite is also available.

  • Central Park Funland
    It's an impressive achievement. Somehow, Central Park Fun-land has figured out the exact formula for fun for the whole family. Take more than seven acres of indoor and outdoor space. Add more than 20 rides and attractions?and then find even more room for 100 video and redemption arcade games. The end result: more than 100,000 guests a year of all ages and 364 days of nonstop laughter and glee. Outdoor attractions welcome visitors to the park during warmer months, and oftentimes that includes the heart-pumping roar of go-karts, which zoom around tracks at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. Other areas contain carnival classics such as the Tilt-a-Whirl as well as a souped-up, adrenaline-packed take on the ferris wheel: the Rock-O-Plane, where each rider's gondola spins upside down. While mini golf and the other outdoor activities take breaks for snowy weather or the occasional meatball storm, the fun never stops indoors. Here, a futuristic landscape spreads over a laser tag arena, and rock climbing walls stretch toward the ceiling?yet that's still only the beginning. Perhaps it's best to grab some pizza at the cafe and plan out the day's agenda.

  • AMF Bowling
    "You're up." At more than 200 AMF Bowling locations across the U.S., that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Now synonymous with bowling, the AMF Bowling Co. was founded in 1901 as American Machine and Foundry. It wasn't until 1946 that the company made a splash in the bowling world, when it introduced the automated pin spotter to the public. Today, AMF's nationwide network of bowling centers is a source of year-round entertainment for people of all ages. Outfitted with a classic bowling alley design, the centers also feature advanced scoring systems, upgraded interiors, laneside video walls at select locations, and a delicious menu of traditional American dishes and snacks.

  • Swaders Sports Park
    Swaders Sports Park fuels friendly competition between friends and family members with an endless series of sports and gaming opportunities. Guests jump into one of four different go-karts and zip around two tracks or guide golf balls past challenging obstacles and serene water features?such as waterfalls, streams, and nymphs holding water guns?on two 18-hole mini-golf courses. Golfers can also head to the driving range or smack a different kind of ball in the batting cages. Inside the facility, a whirring collection of lights and sirens ricochet off the walls from more than 70 arcade games. A multilevel laser-tag arena conceals players behind towering glow-in-the-dark obstacles, and the Route 66 bowling alley allows guests to bowl on highway-themed lanes without the risk of potholes that comes from playing on regular highways.
