During the spring and summer, laughter fills the air at Adventure Zone, where rollicking rides and challenging outdoor games keep spirits high from April to September. Visitors bond over friendly races at the go-kart track, compete for the ownership of plush toys at the center’s arcade, or hone their sporting skills on the miniature-golf course or within the batting cages. The park’s concession stand stocks a range of salty and sweet snacks, which help quell cravings or prevent midrace pizza runs.

Upon departing from Chautauqua Choo-Choo Train Station, trains chug past the abundant attractions sprawled throughout the park during four-minute rides. Had the train existed at Midway State Park when it first opened as a trolley park in 1898, its 15-mile-per-hour jaunt would have surveyed a landscape dotted with playing fields, tennis courts, bathhouses, and a dancehall. These days, America's 16th oldest continually operating amusement park shelters the spinning and twirling cars of a Tilt-A-Whirl and other rides. A three-sided, 24-foot climbing wall challenges participants to spite gravity's tyrannical reign before ringing the buzzer at its peak, and guests in the helicopter ride can adjust their height with a bar attached to the aircraft. Elsewhere, youngsters captain a kiddie boat or steer retro-modeled cars past a miniature roadway's street signs. Between rides, visitors can munch on cotton candy while peering out toward the shores of Chautauqua Lake from one of several picnic areas.

From bungee trampolines that launch people up to four stories in the air to fast-paced rounds of outdoor laser tag, kids get their first taste of adrenaline while exploring Adventure Village's three acres of family attractions. If the trampolines aren't enough, guests can slip into a harness and scale a 25-foot climbing wall. Kids can also have fun planted firmly on the ground. Baseballs buzz through the air in nine batting cages that serve up both softballs and baseballs at up to 90 miles per hour. Kids also carom off of one another in round bumper cars that give drivers the surreal thrill of piloting a giant hockey puck.

A more laid-back form of recreation awaits at the miniature golf course, where guests navigate through tricky corridors lined with five waterfalls and six ponds. Perched atop a swinging wooden bridge, players can study the wooden ruins of two partially sunken ships that rise above the glassy waters or the fish swimming around the murky derelicts. The course also features trivia about South Ontarian history and geography, giving guests all the information they need to finally impress the ghostly teacher that haunts their dreams.

Jungle Jam Indoor Playground's space supports interactive, clean, and safe play for children of various ages. Pre-adults and mature babies swing and slide down the three-level, three-run slide fashioned in the waterfall aesthetic. Jungle tunnels, tube slides, and a suspension bridge all provide locales for imaginative discovery and a zip line previews potential flying abilities lying dormant within unexpected wing growths. A special quiet space for especially small ones is available for baby geniuses to exchange mathematical proofs in peace.

At Summer Wind Stables, instructors lead students through safety-centered lessons and rides in large indoor and outdoor arenas as well as along several wooded acres. During tack lessons, novice equestrians learn to saddle and bridle a horse, building confidence and comfort before they can qualify to tack horses unsupervised. The experienced instructors also host private and group classes, which teach pupils proper riding techniques and help them work toward personal goals such as showing, performing synchronized drills set to music, and competing in Transatlantic races. After lessons, students can unwind in a heated lounge area or peruse the selection at Summer Wind’s gift shop. The shop features whimsical gifts such as mugs and jewelry, along with painted ponies and Breyer horse figurines capable of decorating a kid’s bedroom without leaving hoof prints on the wallpaper.
