Best Fun Inc. creates party pizzazz with more than 20 inflatable bounce houses and obstacle courses available for rental. Ricochet in soft safety between the walls of a kid-friendly bounce house, such as the 4 in 1 module, which amps up jumpertainment with a climbing wall, basketball net, and slide in addition to a spacious 18'x15' bounce room ($370). Like a volleyball game conducted between two airborne dirigibles, sports-themed structures provide inflatable competition with baseball ($195+), jousting ($345), or an air-filled boxing ring, which includes large red gloves to pummel opponents politely ($295). Hoary and bearded partygoers can relate to the wizardry of the Merlin inflatable, a bouncy game full of magically levitating balls ($100). Through each buoyant step of the rental process, the helpful staff at Best Fun Inc. provides efficient service with setup, tear down, and providing a blower which inflates the gigantic bounce house with bags of wind borrowed from an accommodating sky deity.

The founders of Beach Tennis USA imported the volleyball-and-tennis hybrid sport from Aruba in 2005, bringing Americans of all ages and athletic abilities a fresh twist on beach-bound recreation. During the two-hour intro classes, instructors teach students how to bump, smack, or teleport de-pressurized tennis balls over lowered beach-volleyball type nets using nothing but stringless paddles. Like in volleyball and tennis, each team desperately attempts to keep the ball from hitting the ground on their side while using brute force and surreptitious bribery to convince the fast-moving orb to strike the opposing team's sandy surface. The gurus will impart valuable arm-swinging and sand-diving techniques for the first 30 minutes before letting pupils compete in match play for the remaining hour and a half.

A maker of quality billiard tables since 1910, Steepleton's wide range of entertainment furniture keeps a lively rec room from curdling into a dreary fun dungeon, or fungeon. A dartboard ($80–$199) and a couple bar stools ($25–$700) create a cozy habitat for pet Irishmen, and corn-hole bags ($40) provide twice the backyard fun of beanbag tosses, mostly from the game's name. Homebody hustlers, meanwhile, can take home a pool table ($999–$7,000) and pair it with high-quality pool cues ($22–$500). Otherwise, soothe sore muscles or reheat leftovers in a hot tub ($3,000–$13,000) on brisk Kentucky nights. Steepleton's showroom also shows off a variety of basketball hoops, air-hockey and foosball tables, safe outdoor playsets ($1,400–$12,000), and even safer Springfree trampolines—whose hidden frame and soft edges protect rugrats from spring gouges, broken bones, and double-bounces that send them crashing into passing cell-phone satellites.
