Concealed by glowing dividers, combatants creep along the AstroTurf, hunting for a clear shot at an opponent's battle suit. Inside the 6,900-square-foot arena?one of the largest in Syracuse?lasers, black lights, and shadowy corners call to mind a real-life video game or a haunted discotheque. Skirmishes typically run for 15 minutes, pitting the red team and the green team against each other in a tactical contest. During cease-fires, laser combatants can fire quarters into an assortment of arcade games.

At Fun Junction, it's okay to battle with your friends?as long as you keep it inside the laser-tag arena. In fact, you can also battle it out with up to 42 strangers during intense games that unfold beneath glowing ultraviolet lights (hint: if you don't want to be easily spotted, don't wear a white shirt). High-octane music soundtracks the action as teammates hunt down opponents and attempt to deactivate their base. After the game, keep the competition going in the arcade.

Big Don is boredom's worst enemy. Located on a large chunk of land in Cicero, Big Don's Wild River Mini Golf wipes out monotony with nine different activities, including miniature golf on an 18-hole course that weaves through a wilderness setting. Groups can trade in their golf clubs for laser tag guns and charge into battle in a 40,000-square-foot arena, or attempt to navigate through the 5,000-square-foot Amaze'n Maze without help from GPS systems or cars that can smell their way home. Even treasure hunters can get their fix while panning for gems in the facility's mining sluice or digging through sand for keepsakes such as fossils, seashells, and exotic coins.

Here's a tip for getting acquainted with Enchanted Forest Water Safari, New York's largest water theme park: as soon as you get there, head straight to Sky Ride. The attraction's balloon-like cars soar right above the Paul Bunyan statue (which has stood tall at the park since the 1950s), cresting at a bird's-eye view of the entire grounds. More than 50 attractions, including 32 water rides, spread out in front of riders' eyes, all set amid the trees of Adirondack State Park. A quarter-acre tidal wave pool dominates a lot of that view, as does the Amazon, a 1,000-foot slide that send families soaring along, while other slides reach speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, but not everything here requires an affinity for H2O. Enchanted Forest Water Safari is also home to classic amusement park attractions such as squirt gun games, a scrambler ride, and a ferris wheel. But the most timeless draw here may be the park's performers, who put on circus acts, and Storybook Lane, where more than 20 classic storybook tales come to life.

At Clubhouse Fun Center, everything seems to be in motion. Go-karts zip and roar around an outdoor speedway, arcade games spit out streams of tickets, and dimpled balls roll over the greens of two 18-hole mini-golf courses. Visitors join in the commotion by hopping into single, double, or rookie go-karts to race each other or attempt to catch up with their own shadows on a track featuring a double-fly-over bridge. Nearby, the mini-golf courses lure putters with a sparkling cerulean waterfall, a giraffe stretching its neck high into the air, and the pink and purple towers of a lilliputian castle. Before hitting the arcade, guests can refuel with snacks or lunch at the Treehouse Cafe or the Sugar Shack, where they can plan out future birthday parties to take place in treasure-cove- or treehouse-themed rooms.
