Up to 22 gas-powered go-karts at a time can hug the twists and turns of Skate Station Funworks' more than 800-foot track. While the go-kart course is the park's longest attraction, it's not the tallest?that honor goes to the indoor rock-climbing wall. Besides climbing and driving, fun at Skate Station ranges from hitting homers in batting cages to putting balls past a landlocked airboat on the swamp-themed mini-golf course. Children aged 10 or younger can explore the three levels of the Kid's Adventure soft play space, whereas guests of all ages can compete in classic games such as air hockey at the arcade. All these attractions share a home with Skate Station's namesake, an indoor roller-skating rink where visitors can groove to Top 40 hits or learn skating fundamentals during lessons.
Take Away Gourmet concocts an internationally based collection of fresh, health-friendly feasts to be noshed in the comfort of your home. Heat-and-serve meals, such as generous single servings of moroccan chicken with almond couscous or barbecued tofu ($6.99), require only the warmth of your oven or microwave to be ready for sharing with the family dog. Diners seeking a quick bite may order from a selection of cook-and-serve meals, and novice chefs can practice for their silverware operation permits on raw materials such as a peppercorn-crusted pork tenderloin with soy-caramel sauce ($15). Casseroles can fill six to eight plates or one communal bonding-bowl with chicken tetrazzini with prosciutto and peas ($36). Take Away Gourmet's crafty culinarians will gladly rework dishes to accommodate vegans or the gluten-averse upon request.
Framed Fun's photobooths snap a series of shots and instantly spit out a strip of prints to enjoy, but since they're brought to weddings, birthdays, corporate events, and other parties, there's no need to fumble around for a quarter like you would at the mall. And also unlike the mall booths, these boast a whole host of extra options to make the experience more memorable, such as props, green screens, a red carpet and velvet ropes leading to the red-curtained entryway, and even the ability to take short videos. A technician's on hand to set up the booths, and in addition to guests getting their own copies of the pictures, photos can also be added to a scrapbook or be shared instantly via social media.
Fun Time Bounce House Rental sets up colorful, inflatable castles for birthday parties and special events. During jump sessions, staff members split kids by age group before sending them into the bounce house to leap and flop across the puffy surface.
Located in the northern part of the state, Gainesville resides in the middle of several Florida destinations, about a two-hour drive from Orlando, St. Augustine, Tampa, and Jacksonville. Whether on store windows, car bumpers, or ubiquitous sportswear, the Gator logo is impossible to avoid in Gainesville, home to the University of Florida, the sixth largest campus in the country. Affectionately known as "The Swamp," the Ben Hill Griffin Stadium is electric during home football games, when more than 90,000 fans painted in orange and blue perform the Gator Chomp and flawlessly recite every word of the Florida Constitution. Two miles from the Inn, the Century Tower presides over the heart of the campus, a 156-foot-tall Gothic carillon that serenades students with the "Florida Chimes" bell tune every quarter hour. On the west edge of campus, the Florida Museum of Natural History tells the story of the state's history with an award-winning exhibit of more than 500 fossils and Native American artifacts. Dotted with lush, tropical trees, cascading waterfalls, and pedestrian walkways, the museum's Butterfly Rainforest nourishes hundreds of international butterflies species.
