Sky Zone fully embodies the concept of bouncing off the walls, as the facility is lined with gigantic trampolines on the floors and angled trampolines on adjacent walls. Ideal for people of all ages, shapes, and physical abilities, the trampolines unite to form one massive sea of bouncy terrain, upon which visitors can play or compete with hanging basketball hoops. Sky Zone is home to Ultimate dodgeball, an interactive twist on the classic playground sport that has teams jumping and dodging at new heights. Additionally, the park is great for birthdays and special events. Serious boot camps and aerobics courses allow guests to get into shape and have fun at the same time, unlike running from a stampede of buffalo.
Mulligan Family Fun Center's three locations surround parents and kids with sprawling smorgasbords of kinetic entertainment. Outside, each park's sunny grounds encourage healthy activity with putt-testing miniature-golf courses and the hairpin turns of go-kart tracks. In the batting cages, aspiring sluggers test their swing while recognized major-league sluggers test their disguise against the park's do-not-admit posters. Back inside, climbers scale the rock wall?s vertical challenges and friends battle friends in laser tag?s intense light-based combat.
Each location also has its own signature activities. The Torrance location's rookie go-karts, for example, enable younger drivers to take a turn down the track, whereas the Palmdale location boasts a longer, 1,500-foot track for children and adults alike.
The squash-savvy staff at Shawn's Pumpkin Patch flaunts a cornucopia of variously sized pumpkins to adorn fall festivities. Against a rustic backdrop of straw bales and cornstalks, pyramids of gigantic, medium, small, and mini pumpkins ($1–$80) sit ready to be taken home and carved to mimic the visage of a zombie or a beloved imaginary friend. Although not included in today's Groupon, Shawn's Pumpkin Patch also hosts pony rides, mini-train trips, and a petting zoo ($3–$6/person).
People of all ages are drawn to the sensations of racing?the wind in their hair, the adrenaline coursing through their veins, the checkered flags fanning them while pit crews feed them grapes. So Go Kart World ensures everybody can find the racer's thrill in a safe environment. Its so accessible, in fact, that its raceways have been shared by families and celebrities including Jonah Hill, Jodie Foster, and Quentin Tarantino.
Six winding go-kart tracks give racers the ability to handpick their experience. One arena is designed just for bumper cars, whereas a polished-concrete slick track welcomes slide-intensive sprint-car racing. The park's biggest draw, however, is its two-story Super Track, which tests drivers' skills and stamina with a one-third-mile course set 15-feet above the ground and filled with hair-raising 26-degree turns. Each course even uses its own style of kart, from kid-sized machines to adults' champ and euro karts that can reach speeds more than 40 mph.
Pacific Park’s attractions celebrate Santa Monica Pier’s history with classic rides that run with modern technology. The Pacific Wheel uses solar energy to circle 130 feet into the air, where fist pounds from the man in the moon and scenic views of the coastline await. The energy-efficient attraction is 1 of 12 rides, which include classics, a roller coaster, and a four-story tower drop. Visitors can earn prizes at midway games, refuel at the food court, and get their adrenaline pumping on the rock wall or beach bounce.
More than 200 games cover the 5000 sq. ft. Family Arcade. Here are just a few:
The classic arcade is open every day of the week from 8:30 a.m.?1:30 a.m. and open late on the weekends until 2:30a.m.
Family Arcade also rents a wide variety of entertainment equipment?including jukeboxes?to restaurants, movie studios, and other businesses. Over the years, the Pecks have supplied pinball machines and other games to be used as props in a number of films and TV shows.
The Peck Family, Circa the 1970s
Family Arcade lives up to the first word in its name. In 1971, Harry and David Peck founded the company, an arcade and supplier of coin-operated amusement equipment. Over the decades, they've amassed countless pinball machines, arcade games, pool tables, and much more.
The Peck Family, 40 Years Later
Harry and David are still at it more than 40 years later, now with the help of sons Robert and Stephen.
