Zonkers enchants youngsters and guardians alike with its gargantuan indoor amusement park and arcade. Rides abound, including the Python Pit roller coaster and the Banana Squadron—a fleet of small, controllable planes in the shape of bananas, just like Pan Am’s aircraft in the 1970s. The bustling activity center makes a fun destination for field trips and birthday parties.
Designed by golf great Raymond Floyd, The Legacy Golf Course incorporates rolling hills, woodland terrain, and water features into a challenging 6,776-yard layout. Throughout the round, grassy mounds create awkward lies as golfers strive to keep balls away from water hazards, which come into play on most holes, and ankle-high grasses that hug the course's more remote edges. Golfers must show off their best power-draw, fade, or spitball drive to tame the course's fifth hole, which doglegs sharply to the left and has flummoxed enough players to earn the distinction of the course's most difficult hole.
Players can prepare for their round at the club's practice facilities, which include a grass-tee driving range and practice greens for chipping and putting. The Legacy Golf Course is an Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary that works to preserve its ecosystem's delicate balance between flying balls and flying squirrels.

Burgers reign supreme at Fred P. Ott's, gracing the extensive menu donning both classic and specialty cloaks of accouterments. The hickory burger comes topped with barbecue sauce and smoked bacon, and the Texas variety charms tongue buds with thick accents of chili, cheddar, and onion bud (both $7.99 for 1/3-pound, $9.60 for 1/2-pound). "Ott" dogs, prepared with Black Angus beef, offer an upscale take on the ballpark classic. Try the original Ott with lettuce, tomato, and pepper relish ($6.29), or the Spanish Flyer with chili, nacho cheese, and scallions ($7.29). If you'd like to keep your meal as light as a globetrotting eccentric's hot air balloon, opt for a garden salad with eggs, onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, cheddar, scallions, and bacon ($6.59). Sandwiches and barbecue bites round out the menu.
