A lifelong small-scale-speedmobile builder and driver, Rapid Raceway co-owner Rick "Rapid" Raducha initiates aspiring 1:32-scale motorists into the ways of the controller with two massive slot-car courses. Racers can challenge the grooves of the 145-foot Grandstand track, where they’ll command their electrified speedsters through its tricky S-curves before flooring it on two 13-foot straightaways. Or, fast fingers can test their abilities on The Whip, which Rapid Raceway says is America’s fastest road course, featuring two 34-degree banked turns and an 89-foot lap length that leaves drivers little time to break for NASCAR’s traditional blueberry-scone halftime show. Today's deal provides a rental car and remote so that casual competitors don't have to propel cars through mind-control, though slot-car gurus are welcome to bring their own models. Rapid Raceway also sells scale racing parts and accessories and does repairs and custom design.

Windsor Mountain International Summer Camp hosts families on five-day rustic retreats on 365 acres of rural white-pine forest. Parents, accompanied by their children, can return to the days of bunking in cabins and dorms, roasting marshmallows, and kindling campfires with only a piece of flint and a smartphone. A daily activities schedule abounds with aquatic endeavors, such as canoeing, sailing, and swimming; adventurous challenges, such as zip lining and ropes courses; and creative activities, including music, theater, and arts and crafts. A winding network of hiking trails transports forest explorers along the shores of hidden lakes and through dense pine woodlands, where hikers can seek answers to the philosophical question of whether it’s possible to hear a falling tree’s cries for help.

At Club Kids, the idea that children possess boundless energy is shown—like the thought that life can survive south of the Mason-Dixon Line—to be a fabrication. Tots can clamber up a miniature rock wall and tube-filled playscape or visit the luxurious, exfoliating ball-pit to detox from a hard day of crayon-eating. Observe as youths develop their pupal pro-gaming skills on arcade machines or take twirls on the indoor merry-go-round and electric go-karting course. Club Kids also sells bounties of toys, tyke-sized clothing, and customized stuffed animals. Individual memberships net unlimited admittance to the 11,000-square-foot arena for kids ages 4–12, and the family membership lets siblings in on the fun as well.
