BounceSpot's pint-sized citizens romp through a colorful panorama of inflatable entertainment. With feet clad in socks or stuffed into willing sock puppets, kids can frolic through a labyrinth of inflatable moonwalks, slides, and obstacle courses. At the end of each day, the BounceSpot staff sanitizes every inch of the inflatable obstacle courses and ticket-arcade machines that span the 11,000-square-foot play space. These meticulous scrub-downs are part of BounceSpot’s policy to foster a safe, cheerful environment. Staffers also supervise bounce houses to ensure kids play gently and haven’t smuggled in performance-enhancing pogo sticks.

As kids clamber across colorful inflatables, parents can lounge at nearby tables and cruise complimentary WiFi or stop by the concession stand for pizza and ice cream.

Twenty-five-year-old Jamie Stevenson has been working her entire life toward making horses the focus of her career. When she was just knee-high to a pony’s tail, Jamie started saving her pennies inside her "horse money box." Though this fund never got big enough to help Jamie buy her own horse, she was eventually able to achieve this goal and more thanks to the engineering degree she earned at Purdue University. Jamie’s day job as an operations process engineer bankrolls her equine interests and makes it possible for her to maintain the riding facility where she first learned how to ride—and where she met the four-legged love of her life. Today, Jamie and her trusty sidekick, Dart, help riders of all ages and abilities overcome their fears, fine-tune their riding techniques, and succeed in riding competitions.

The game of bowling hasn't changed much since Blue River Bowl opened in 1959, but the building's 16-lane alley certainly has. Rather than manually computing scores, for instance, players can sit back while an automatic system tallies each roll and flashes entertaining animations across its screens. The latest sports flicker to highlight-filled life on 16 televisions and one giant projector screen, while the lanes themselves glows during periodic neon-tinted rounds of cosmic bowling. The smoke-free alley hosts open bowling sessions every day, as well as several leagues for youths, adults, and colonies of ants that want to see if they can collectively lift the ball.

No matter their skill or competition level, bowlers can grab new gear at Blue River's pro shop, which houses shiny new balls and bags ready to report for pinbusting duty. They can also unwind at one of three on-site eateries, where cooks satiate post-game cravings for pizza, subs, and frosty drinks.

There are plenty of chances to grab a lane at Beech Grove Bowl. That's because the alley is open 24/7, letting guests squeeze in a game after dinner, before breakfast, or during an important business meeting they'd rather skip. In addition to organizing league games, setting up bumpers for kids' parties, and re-lacing every bowling shoe, the facility is known for their pizzas and large calzones, among other menu items, such as burgers and fries.
