With hands gripped to the wheels of karts capable of cresting 45 miles per hour, up to 12 racers hum around the hairpin turns and straightaways of K1 Speed's indoor track during adrenaline-spiking sprints toward the podium. This brand of excitement can be found at all 20+ locations, where racers eschew the fumes and inflammatory skywriting of gas kart exhaust for European, eco-friendly electric karts designed to instantly accelerate out of curves, which are bordered by safety barriers that absorb impacts.

Sky Zone fully embodies the concept of bouncing off the walls, as the facility is lined with gigantic trampolines on the floors and angled trampolines on adjacent walls. Ideal for people of all ages, shapes, and physical abilities, the trampolines unite to form one massive sea of bouncy terrain, upon which visitors can play or compete with hanging basketball hoops. Sky Zone is home to 3-D dodgeball, an interactive twist on the classic playground sport that has teams jumping and dodging at new heights. Additionally, the park is great for birthdays and special events. Serious boot camps and aerobics courses allow guests to get into shape and have fun at the same time, unlike running from a stampede of buffalo.

AdventurePlex has developed an easy recipe for lifelong healthy habits: an early start, plenty of space, and plenty of fun things to do. They've also discovered that this recipe works just as well on parents as on children.

Outside AdventurePlex's 16,000-square-foot facility, a 35-foot-high rock-climbing wall stretches across 1,630 square feet of climbing area so that families of grapplers can train to scale mountain summits or tickle the Statue of Liberty's chin. A ropes course similarly fosters teambuilding and confidence 20 feet above the ground, while a flourishing garden of herbs and vegetables helps kids understand the origins of what goes into their bellies. The Courtside Café completes the food's life cycle with a menu of leafy greens, wraps, juices, and American staples. Indoors, a five-level AdventureRoom play structure preps wee ones for a future of healthy living and boardroom obstacle courses with its network of mazes, tunnels, slides, and ball pits. In 2013, the play structure won a Best of the Beach award from Easy Reader for Best Indoor Play Facility.

The AdventurePlex crew curates a variety of activities, including birthday parties, fitness classes, and summer adventure camps that keep muscles and minds engaged in a fun, safe environment. Parents, meanwhile, can surf the Web on AdventurePlex's WiFi—but adult-only yoga and body-sculpting classes let them find some "me time" without taking clones out for a romantic night on the town.

Under the Sea fosters children’s learning and growth in an underwater-themed yet water-free indoor play stronghold. Throughout the socks-only facility, kids of all ages bounce, climb, slide, and negotiate raises from their child bosses under the watchful eyes of the painted mermaids and sea life that fill floor-to-ceiling murals. The Moon Bouncer combines the mystique of the subaquatic realm with the gravity-snubbing freedom of outer space, letting kids jump and stretch for starry heights, and the Turbo Slide facilitates rapid reacquaintance with terrestrial surfaces. Filling much of the vast playspace, brightly hued climbing structures and a sea castle invite children to refine their clambering and crawling skills, useful for future careers as brachiating gibbon impersonators.

Mulligan Family Fun Center's three locations surround parents and kids with sprawling smorgasbords of kinetic entertainment. Outside, each park's sunny grounds encourage healthy activity with putt-testing miniature-golf courses and the hairpin turns of go-kart tracks. In the batting cages, aspiring sluggers test their swing while recognized major-league sluggers test their disguise against the park's do-not-admit posters. Back inside, climbers scale the rock wall’s vertical challenges and friends battle friends in laser tag’s intense light-based combat.

Each location also has its own signature activities. The Torrance location's rookie go-karts, for example, enable younger drivers to take a turn down the track, whereas the Palmdale location boasts a longer, 1,500-foot track for children and adults alike.

Palos Verdes Bowl has been open for more than half a century, but just because it's reached middle age doesn't mean it lacks modern amenities. On Wednesday and Saturday evenings, the alley's karaoke hours turn civilians into celebs as they rock out and star in music videos in front of a greenscreen. The stage also plays host to professional musicians on Thursdays and Fridays. Throughout the week, bowlers can take a break to engage in winner-takes-all conversation over sliders, wings, and pizza from the onsite cafe, Maxine's, or a tall brew from the onsite bar, The Cove.
