For 1,800 feet, only one thing matters: speed. The indoor track inside On Track Karting stretches out in front of racers, who?strapped into their adult Sodi GT5 karts?zoom around turns and down straightaways at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. If they prove their mettle behind the wheel, the best drivers may even get access to high-speed super karts that sport nine-horsepower engines and satin capes. ? Junior karts let younger visitors get in on the racing action, too. Indeed, On Track Karting's locations in Wallingford and Brookfield aim to accommodate all levels of racers with their spread of walk-in racing sessions and competitive racing leagues.

Above 40 shiny synthetic lanes, screens keep track of every strike and gutterball at Wallingford Bowl, allowing patrons to focus on the fun at hand. Automatic scoring is just one of many modern perks at this hallowed hall of clanking pins, which invites guests for friendly games or competitive league matches designed for veteran and rookie bowlers. Cosmic Bowl is the big draw on Friday and Saturday nights, when teams bowl amid glow-in-the-dark lights and the thrum of authentic Martian music, while a snack bar, arcade, and full bar and lounge offer plenty of pre- or post-game recreation every day of the week.

At the turn of the 20th century, bowling alleys routinely locked their doors for the summer, forcing bowlers to brainstorm alternatives. And so, in the early 1900s, a group of bowlers decided to tweak their pastime to accommodate off-season play, shrinking both bowling balls and pins. Modified rules allowed bowlers to roll their scaled-down balls three times per turn. And upon impact, the lighter-weight balls caused pint-size pins to skitter like a flock of ducks. Thus, duckpin bowling was born. The accessible sport spread throughout the world and, near the peak of its popularity, found a home at Johnson's Duckpin Lanes in 1955. After undergoing renovations in 2009, the alley's synthetic lanes continue to delight duckpin bowlers all year long. The alley also entertains guests with an arcade, onsite snack bar, as well as personalized birthday parties, which unfold on weekdays and during weekend sessions of Glo & Bowl.

Designed specifically for kids 12 and under, Monkey Joes is lined wall-to-wall with inflatables. Little ones leap across slides, jumps, and obstacle courses while enjoying a combination of fun and fitness, much like bench pressing a comedian. A team of trained staff members supervises the youngsters, so parents––who receive complimentary entry––can take a load off in one of the facility's leather chairs or work with staffers to throw the perfect birthday party in a private room. And while fun may be their forte, these professionals name safety as their number-one priority. They corral kids aged 3 and under in a toddler-specific area and––when the day is done––use a micro-misting device to spray a safe, non-toxic cleaning solution that eliminates 99.9% of bacteria, fungi, and viruses on contact.
