When Sunny Williamson’s son couldn’t find a satisfactory airsoft facility, his father decided to create one for him. Opened in 2006, Tac City Airsoft has since expanded to two indoor airsoft facilities totaling more than 60,000-square feet. Under the watchful eye of refs, players duke it out in the Fullerton field’s fully enclosed quarters filled with wooden walls and labyrinthine hallways or the semi-outdoor space in El Monte littered with barrels and haystacks. Personnel update the fields every few months to keep repeat guests on their toes as they compete in scenarios such as capture the flag and follow-up games of set the flag free. In lieu of combatting with Tac City Airsoft’s fully automatic M4 rentals, visitors can purchase their own weapons and gear at the pro-shop.
Upon stepping inside Hi-Tech Archery’s facility, you might think you’ve accidentally entered a king's hunting lodge. However, the sheer number of bows, mounted buck heads, and colorful bull’s-eyes tip visitors off that this is not just one man’s arsenal, but an entire shop of brand-name archery equipment. The store's staff stocks equipment for hunting, target shooting, and pro archery, offering advice on what works best when aiming at a house fly. In addition to equipment, they offer lessons that help clients learn how to properly handle their bow, as well as youth leagues to help kids build their discipline and find a fun, healthy hobby.

From toddler to teenager, kids find a way to have fun at Pumper Jumpers. The cavernous 17,000-square-foot space splits off into nine separate areas, each with a different way for kids to burn off some steam. As they navigate the Imaginarium playground, toddlers practice walking upright or running on their hands, while teenagers battle at XBox or Wii games flickering on 48-inch screens. Meanwhile, laughter bounces from the lofty ceilings as kids careen down the air-filled slide or visit the bounce house to imagine what it would be like to go back to a time when waterbeds were cool. Even parents unwind by visiting the cafe and sipping on coffee or a boba drink.
From 18 studios scattered around Los Angeles, Lori Moran Music Studios’ armada of instructors offers all-ages voice, piano, guitar, violin, and composition classes. With teachers who have worked on films such as Dreamgirls and Dance Flick, world-touring operatic productions, and Grammy-nominated choral CDs, the school can cater to virtually every musical taste—from classical to jazz to pop. Students choose the emphasis of their lessons, whether they want to work on their public performance skills, write their own songs, sight-read scores, or simply be able to play musical chairs during a power outage. Many will also get the chance to show off in recitals, concerts, and showcases.
Michael "Rocket" Blackstone was born into a family of pilots, and he began flying with his father at age 8. Now with 25 years of experience and 14,000 hours of logged flight time, Michael chooses to share his passion for flying with novice aviators and eager thrill seekers, taking them into the skies in one of four stunt aircraft, including a vintage-inspired, open-cockpit biplane.
After a brief safety talk on the ground, he and his pilots use these planes to take customers on adrenaline-pumping thrill rides, as seen on Eye on L.A.. These flights crisscross the skies over the California coastline, reaching speeds of up to 250 miles per hour. Passengers can even take the stick after takeoff, regardless of their experience level, and help the pilot guide the plane through basic aerobatic maneuvers, such as performing a loop, taking it into a roll, and skywriting a knock-knock joke within sight of downtown.
Michael and his pilots also lead flight-training sessions that teach students the basics of aerobatics over the course of several skyward outings with pre- and post-flight briefings. For a more tranquil excursion, they fly sightseeing tours of downtown Los Angeles or Long Beach Harbor and take passengers on chartered flights to Catalina Island.
