It's unlikely that any historic kingdom had batting cages and water slides, but to be fair, Knight's Action Park is a lot more fun than an actual castle. On one side of the park, guests can don swimsuits and hop aboard bumper boats, slip down slides, or set out in paddle boats. Seven mini slides teach smaller children the fun of water-park attractions, while statues of giant sea creatures teach them that life is terrifying. Across the way, a 50-tee driving range lets golfers hone their swing, and an 18-hole mini-golf course caters to putters of all ages. The park's assortment of land-based amusements also includes a Ferris wheel, an arcade, and go-karts.

Gateway Fun Park delights visitors year-round with a range of entertainment attractions for all ages?from group outings and birthday parties to packs of friends wiling away the afternoon. Mini golfers aim for the green amid two 18-hole courses' babbling brooks, stone partitions, and miniature buildings. Drivers safely let loose their suppressed road rage by bouncing into each other in bumper cars. A full-scale go-cart track gives lead feet of any age a taste of the open road, and the kiddie track lets kids ages 4?9 finally take the wheel their parents normally refuse to let them eat.

Cool water gurgles, sprays, and rushes at Splash City Waterpark. Here, water slides and swimming pools abound. Dash through the playground as a massive bucket tilts and drenches you in chilled water, or float down the crystal creek on a relaxing ride. Surf or bodyboard on the FlowRider, or scramble up the AquaClimb climbing wall. When your fingers turn into prunes, dry off at the sand castle cove or recline on a beach chair and let the vitamin D soak in.
