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.
Laguna's Awesome Party Palace immerses kids into a world more vibrant than their imaginations. Here, five colorful, themed bounce houses host sessions of sock-clad cavorting. Beloved cartoon characters, including Winnie the Pooh, Mickey Mouse, and Tweety, decorate the inflatable houses, alongside a bouncy slide and a train. 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.
As soon as children are old enough to walk, they are old enough to begin honing their coordination, body-awareness, and basic motor skills through engaging and age-appropriate gymnastics lessons. That's the central philosophy driving the instructors at Byers Gymnastics, which has four locations, and a 40-year legacy of providing both basic and competition-level training for boys and girls ranging from toddlers to teenagers. While youngsters learn the fundamentals of jumping, balancing, and rolling, older students can master more challenging routines and learn to safely use various pieces of traditional gymnastics equipment, such as the balance beams, floor, vault, and tumble trak, and the slightly off-kilter stepladder. These year-round programs cater to visitors of virtually all interests and levels, and share the common goal of building stamina and flexibility, while also teaching students the value of perseverance and self-determination.
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.
There's nothing routine about teeth cleanings at Laguna Village Dental. Amir Shad, DDS and his dental staff use a customized mix of medicated gels, prescription mouth rinses, and vibrating Ultrasonic scalers, when necessary, to lift plaque and restore oral health. Performing these regular cleanings, as well as keeping patients informed about at-home care, is the foundation of the staff's preventative care. When cosmetic or restorative treatments are in order, however, Dr. Shad channels more than a decade's worth of experience in perfecting smiles with technologies that range from Lumineers veneers to Invisalign treatments.
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.
