In 1948, Lester and Velma king took 10,000 square feet of property in Elk Grove and turned it into a place where friction has no control and people can coast in circles for hours on end. Today, the King family still runs the King's Skate Country roller rink. Here, visitors strap on classic roller skates or inline skates and coast across the floor, only stopping for a bite to eat or a soda at the snack bar. In addition to open skate sessions, the rink hosts birthday parties and events, including after-school sessions where kids can skate in ovals to fulfill a geometry requirement.

A selection of family-friendly arcade games fosters bouts of friendly competition throughout the playroom, which is also home to a variety of toys.

During private parties, parents can kick back and leave the planning to the staff, as invitations, snacks, and setup and cleanup are just a few of the perks included in Laguna's party packages.

Surfing indoors typically requires an open-face waterbed and a high-powered hair dryer, but not at Surf Xtreme. The recreation center?s automated surf simulator, the Flowrider, creates the illusion of surfing with shallow, fast-moving water, which flows at speeds of up to 30 mph. Constructed of a trampoline-like material, the floor cushions falls as effectively as the marshmallow floors of Candy Land?s retirement homes, and CPR-certified attendants ensure surfers cruise safely through the ride?s heated waters.

For a break from aquatic shenanigans, guests can bound about the 2,400-square-foot trampoline area that flanks the simulator. Kids and adults can cavort with unrestrained glee, ricocheting off the walls bordered by protective padding. Alternatively, youngsters can take to the paintball field, whose customizable bunkers can be configured for games of Capture the Flag or Last Man Standing.

My Gym, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 20 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level?starting as young as 6 weeks?and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6 to 9, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity, and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.

She passes on her passion to the next generation?including her daughter, the inspiration for Kindermusik?through music and movement classes for kids.

At Moore's Chinese Martial Arts, which is one of more than 20 affiliated martial arts schools on the West Coast, the instructors specialize in shou shu, a system of pure self-defense. Literally translating into "beast knowledge," the efficient fight system utilizes the motions of seven different fighting animals. Each animal specializes in a specific type of motion and relies on the laws of physics to generate immense powers channeled in different ways. A demonstrative video showcases the martial as a practical defense technique, which Al Moore Sr. brought to the U.S. from China more than 45 years ago. In some cases, the shou shu practitioners in the video show how the discipline's strikes and takedowns can subdue multiple attackers, which would be needed if you were at a super villain's cloning facility.
