Whether sinking a putt or demolishing a high score, Walther's Golf & Fun surrounds visitors with the trappings of the tropics. On the dual miniature golf courses, one indoor and one outdoor, waterfalls and banana trees give the feel of golfing through a vibrant jungle. The laser-tag course is similarly themed, with tangles of neon lights washing over palm trees and weathered ruins. Jungle-print carpet coats the floor of the fully stocked arcade, and golfers practicing on the driving range wait impatiently for one droopy toucan to collect and return their golf balls.

It's easy to get lost in Two Bit Bandit Family Fun Center's massive arcade, and even easier to spend the entire day aiming for the high score on everything from air hockey to Jurassic Park pinball. But do yourself a favor and save a few hours to explore the non-virtual fun zones, which include eight batting cages and four one-on-one basketball courts. The family fun center is a popular place to celebrate a birthday or office MVP award, as two-hour celebrations include a thematically decorated party room.

Big Splash Adventure immerses visitors in an environment rich in swashbuckling-themed aquatic attractions, onsite restaurants, and family-friendly accommodations. Under the protection of a retractable roof, the park's 40,000 square feet of pools, fountains, and aqueous playgrounds include a giant, water-dumping bucket in Buccaneer Bay and a twisting, enclosed water slide dubbed Pirate's Plunder. In the Palm Cove oasis, swimmers 18 and older can soak away tension or belly flop regret in the 99- to 101-degree bubbling hot tub.

Games covering 6,000 square feet await visitors in the Treasure Chest Arcade and three restaurants fuel entertainment with steak and seafood entrees, pizzas, and sandwiches. Each room features a 32-inch flat-screen television and wireless internet, and upgrades can grant guests amenities such as a microwave, refrigerator, and dining area, providing respite after a long day of dog paddling.

As the summer sun dips lazily into the horizon, the air fills with an orchestra of buzzing go-karts and humming ziplines punctuated by floods of laughter. The revelry lasts into the night only to start anew the next morning, a cycle that will continue until Labor Day’s arrival sends Kentucky Shores Family Fun Center’s attractions into hibernation. Guests of all ages romp around the park’s verdant grounds, orchestrating aquatic collisions in the bumper boats or hopping aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a trip back in time without the hassle of having to arm-wrestle your past self. The 36-hole mini golf course adds a touch of the majestic to putting outings thanks to its two waterfalls and stainless steel sculptures forged by renowned artist George Bandarra. Indoors, an arcade beckons guests to video games and rounds of skeeball, and a snack bar staves off hunger pangs with frozen treats and gooey pizzas.

The gauntlet of ramps, windmill blades, and dastardly drawbridges at Midget Links Golf has been challenging players for more than half a century. Originally opened in 1947, the 18-hole course is most famously known for the goldfish-filled, 1,500-gallon aquarium that serves as the focal point of the course’s circular layout. Other noteworthy course features include the unofficial 19th hole, which gives players the chance to win free rounds, prizes, and the polite applause of onlooking goldfish. With so much history embedded in its greens, Miget Links Golf even plays host to the annual Indiana State Open, a tour event for the putt-putt pros of the United States Miniature Golf Association.

Whether you're bobbing in the 18,000-square-foot wave pool or screaming down the Dueling Demon speed slide, there's never a dull?or dry?moment at Venture River Water Park. But the park's attractions aren't just for thrill-seekers; smaller family members can head to the kiddie pool, which features mini slides, a mushroom-shaped waterfall, and plenty of lounge chairs for parents. Party packages make a splash with kids of all ages with snacks, drinks, a birthday cake, and a ceremonial procession down the Old Man River.
