Oodles kids' gym and learning center aims to help students of any age improve their physical or scholastic abilities in a fun, structured environment. Youngsters new to standing on their own two feet can fine-tune their gross motor skills in gym classes that combine games, songs, swings, and rides to induce smiles and confident movements. Older students in need of scholastic aid pair up with an Oodles tutor to tackle challenging homework assignments or arts-and-crafts projects. The learning center's curriculum also includes other brain-boosting classes, such as Korean languages, Bollywood dance, SAT study groups, and art-academy sessions. Classes run no longer than 45 minutes, which is long enough to help students grasp the day's lessons without reaching the limit of their attention span or jello-powered battery pack.

The Rinks offers both inline and ice skating for all ages and all skill levels. The Westminster and Yorba Linda centers boast NHL-size rinks, and Anaheim and Lakewood boast Olympic-size rinks. In addition, Anaheim's league-certified surface is used as the official training facility of the Anaheim Ducks. Skaters can take to the ice for classes on such blade-top pursuits as hockey, figure skating, public skating, curling, broomball, and more. For the ice-averse, The Rinks has three inline-skating centers in Corona, Huntington Beach, and Irvine which play host to youth and adult roller hockey leagues, skating clinics, public skates, and more. Open-skate sessions give aficionados the chance to take a few laps with friends and family, riding atop their own blades or donning a rental pair from the front desk. On Friday and Saturday nights, rinks morph into icy dance clubs, blasting hit music booming through the speakers and projecting music videos onto a jumbo screen. Birthday packages are also available at both locations.
