At Adventure World Skate & Fun Center, kids and adults alike entertain both muscle and mind-matter in through a variety of heart-pounding activities. In the laser tag arena, players strap on receivers, holster a laser-emitting gun, and re-enact the galactic phase of the Crimean War on a phosphorescent battlefield. Competitors have the option of playing the four 10-minute games consecutively or spacing them out to fuel grudge matches or plan for potential roommate border disputes. With an additional admission fee ($3–$6), zapped compatriots can take backward victory laps around the skate rink ($3 skate rental) or purchase tokens to conquer the arcade room.
Hot Shots Family Fun Center enchants guests of all ages with four outdoor attractions that offer both terrestrial and aquatic recreation. Three streams, six ponds, and a waterfall line the par-40 miniature golf course, cultivating peace of mind as players grapple with creative hazards. Friends can douse one another with water cannons built into the cockpits of electric-powered bumper boats or attack one another with a barrage of cushy Nerf balls in the Cannonball Air Blasters bounce house. Atop the glassy surface of Hot Shots' outdoor pool, guests propel themselves inside buoyant, 8-foot hamster wheels, which enable them to traverse the waters immediately after eating at the Nineteenth Hole Cafe.
According to Pump It Up, air is essential for a successful rowdy romp. During three fun-filled open-bounce sessions, children leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like legless snakes through an air-filled obstacle course, losing themselves in a world of multi-colored inflatamania. Pump It Up’s indoor air arena is climate-controlled and cleanly maintained according to rigorous guidelines set by a team of well-trained staff members. Parents play for free, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow their neighbor’s kid or win one by collecting enough cereal-box tops. Open bounce times run during the day on Mondays and Fridays (10:30 a.m.–noon), and in the evening on Fridays and Sundays (5:30 p.m.–7 p.m.). Check the schedule and get ready to deck the walls with jolly bounces.
From the vibrant tubes and slides of the multilevel FunZone playground to the squeal-inducing Tubs-of-Fun and Red Baron Bi-planes, FunStation2000's rides and games engage youngsters of all ages. As the Himalaya Rollercoaster speeds around its track, the laser-tag arena accommodates bouts between phaser-wielding teams. In the indoor batting cages, balls hurtle toward future home-run hitters and team mascots who need to practice dodging the swings of angry players. FunStation2000 continues enticing guests with a massive arcade and snack station full of treats including cheese pizzas, spicy popcorn chicken, and corn dogs.
In addition to accommodating spontaneous days of revelry, the center's staff hosts private parties, complete with game tokens, playtime, and pizza and cake served in the animal-themed party room.
Green Ridge Recreation Center sprawls out over 76,000 square feet, giving muscle-molders, swimmers, and other athletes plenty of room to work up a sweat. The wellness center boasts a 1/8-mile walking track so security guards can practice wandering in circles. Strength-training equipment, free weights, and more than 60 cardiovascular exercise machines build muscle and raise pulses. While they run, exercisers can absorb the view of the surrounding hills or else turn to the personal television screens attached to many of the treadmills and ellipticals in case there are any good shows about hills on. Players pick and roll across two high-school-regulation-sized basketball courts in the air-conditioned gymnasium, which also hosts pickup and free-play volleyball sessions.
Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children looking to get in touch with their natural buoyancy. During three fun-filled pop-in visits, children can leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate-controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by a well-trained staff and local police. Parents bounce for free during pop-in play times, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow a neighbor’s kid or win one by collecting soda tops.
