Jump for Joy's 27-acre grounds enchant urban farmers, equestrians, and nature lovers alike with a recreational organic farm, stables, and other natural-educational amenities. The full-service equestrian center, in addition to boarding horses, offers riding lessons and horse camps in which riders of all ages can master horse-powered transit and learn the slight dialect differences between speaking Horse and Donkey. Throughout the grounds, visitors can wander through a natural wetlands system, wild-bird habitat, and blueberry orchard in addition to other sustainable-homesteading amenities. Kids delve into the natural world at birthday parties on the farm and themed weeklong summer camps that impart skills on horse riding, organic farming, or ecology.

Inside both of JJ Jump's two locations lies 7,000 to 12,000 square feet of inflatable challenges and bounce-based entertainment for children. The jousting arena settles sibling rivalries in a civilized and laugh-filled fashion, and giant slides send little ones safely toward the ground. But there's more to JJ Jump than jumping: each facility also boasts a creative play zone that is ripe with construction toys and a stage where children can let their imaginations run wild.

From time to time, the Clackamas facility morphs into JJ Extreme, where a kid wearing a harness can be suspended from the ceiling by a rope to swing back and forth under neon lights. Harnesses also come in handy for a slightly more competitive activity, during which youngsters zip past one another, running toward a basketball hoop and hoping to make a shot before a bungee cord pulls them each backward across a soft, inflatable mat.

Players plugs gamers into a cavalcade of entertaining diversions while fueling competitive spirits with eats and drinks from a menu of pub mainstays. Satisfy pin-busting urges by bowling on one of 12 sleek lanes ($2–$4.75/game per person; $2.50/shoe rental). Each lane sports a massive flat-screen hovering above pins, helping bowlers catch the game while dominating their own opponents. Decamp to Players’ billiards lounge for lessons on trick shots, geometry, or the mating habits of eight-balls staged atop one of the contemporary pool tables ($8–$10/hr.). Players' bar and dining area basks under warm amber lights punctuated by the blue glow of 25 sports-affixed TV screens. Gab with old colleagues about advancements in office pranks over frothy brews (bottle $3.25–$4; draft $3.50–$4.50), goblets of vino ($5+), or one of 10 burgers ($8.99–$10.99). The under-21 set stays occupied in the 8 Ball Lounge, a youth-friendly hideaway packed with shuffleboard tables and sleek seating.

Milwaukie Bowl's lanes are enjoyed by visitor's for everything from bowling lessons and leagues to kids' parties and glow-in-the-dark bowling.

Portland Aquarium, a December 2012 addition to Milwaukie, introduces visitors to thousands of waterborne species. Guests can slide their hands along the smooth flesh of a stingray or the knobby arms of a starfish or engage in staring contests with a leopard shark. Other planned exhibits include a jellyfish exhibit, a cold-water tank filled with fish native to Oregon's coast, and a rainforest-themed jungle gym for children. The tropical touch-tank woos visitors with its displays of vibrant-color aquatic life while amphibious wonders, including poison dart frogs, thrill visitors. Those seeking bigger thrills may hoist various pythons species–including a15-foot reticulated or 9-foot albino burmese snake–upon their shoulders or get their picture taken with a lorikeet. Landing-loving iguanas and panther chameleons also lurch around in the mix.

The attractions at Jabbersons Fun Center present a variety of ways for kids to have fun. In the arcade, guests can hop on a motorcycle or skateboard at game cabinets in hopes of earning a course record or impressing Tony Hawk. During bumper card rides, kids 5 and older cruise the track, crashing into families in friends for laughs along the way. The fun center also features a laser maze that shows kids what it might be like to be a cat burglar or a super spy as they sneak around light beams to get to the finish line.
