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.
For more than a decade, The Hitting Zone has helped baseball and softball players hone their slugging skills with top-notch batting cages. Its newly renovated facility includes seven new batting cages, new token machines, professional-quality turf, and enhanced lighting. While three cages devour tokens and spit out speedy pitches, schedule-savvy batters claim one of four regular cages for a designated hour of ball-pummeling against a Cy Young android lookalike.
Funigan’s livens up family outings with an arsenal of attractions, including mini bowling, a 17-foot rock-climbing wall, and one of the largest Soft Play fun zones in North Carolina. The Family Fun Pack #2 grants any size group 12 individual attraction admissions and comes with 75 tokens to indulge the appetites of arcade games such as skeeball, whack-a-mole, and mini hoops. After summiting indoor mountaintops and uncovering the secret button combo to turn Mortal Combat characters into Greenpeace volunteers, famished gamers can power up on the large cheese pizza and pitcher of soda included in the Fun Pack.
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.
The alligator's enormous jaws remain gaping, large white fangs ready to chomp as child after child voluntarily scampers down its gullet. It's not feeding day at the zoo—it’s a day of bouncing and exercise at Bumper Jumpers’ 14,000-square-foot indoor playground packed with mammoth inflatables and games. Loping across the padded, multicolored floor, kids bound in a giant purple inflatable to play basketball or punt footballs through air-filled field-goal poles. Big yellow slides beckon tots before they frolic through inflated landscapes of orange dinosaurs, oversize mushrooms, and jump-roping imaginary friends.
After working up an appetite, kids can gnaw on healthy treats at the refreshments area before slipping into inflatable sumo suits or tossing balls at the mini bowling game. Bumpers Jumpers offers weekly programs so parents can drop kids off for three hours of play while they go about their day, and party packages help parents to organize memorable birthdays.
Bumper Jumpers keeps kids safe by closely monitoring them with both an attentive staff and an electronic surveillance system. Additionally, regular cleaning of purple sea serpents and twisty obstacle courses with Purell sanitizer keeps the venue free of 99% of germs.
