  • Texas Jumping Beans
    From the grinning rainbow-colored caterpillar to the rainbow-spiraled bouncy tent and red knight's castle, Texas Jumping Beans envelopes kids in a kaleidoscopic fun house. While sock-clad tots tumble through a 12,000-square-foot supervised playground, parents sit back with lemonade from the vending machines. As guardians surf the Internet, kids slip down giant air-filled slide and commandeer the mammoth inflatable pirate's ship before retiring to the lobby to eat their brown-bagged lunches brought from home. After filling up their food vesicles, toddlers wade through the 12'x10' ball pond and explore tunnels, and their bigger brethren burn energy ricocheting off the plush yellow dinosaurs they will clone for research later in their home laboratories. The bouncy playground also makes for energetic birthday parties, which the center can host any time of day, any day of the week, accommodating anything from a three-hour fiesta to an all-night slumber party. Additionally, Texas Jumping Beans rents springy houses and picnic tables for at-home shindigs.

  • Lake Travis Zipline Adventures
    Beginning atop a 20-story cliff, Lake Travis Zipline Adventures's final zipline carries riders above Lake Travis for more than 2,500 feet at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. To reach the cliff, a pair of professionally trained guides lead 2.5-3 hour hikes through Texas Hill Country, affording panoramic views of Lake Travis along the way. Before the finale over the lake, groups stop at four other ziplines that snake through canyons and soar above inlets. Back on land, the company reserves more than 10 acres of Lake Travis shore for post-tour picnics and beach games. For guests embarking on a nighttime zipline tour or looking to linger in central Texas, Lake Travis Zipline Adventures rents out private cabins. Accommodations include a front porch overlooking the lake, as well as access to two private beaches.

  • Reindeer Manor
    If the words Reindeer Manor have you imagining sleigh rides, warm cocoa, and carols by the fire...you might want to stay home. Because this Reindeer Manor isn't out to make you sing?it wants to make you scream. Now in its 41st year of operation, Reindeer Manor Halloween Park facilitates thrills and chills with not one, but three haunted attractions in one location. Daring patrons must first brave the cursed hallways of Reindeer Manor Haunted House, it's setting inspired by the unspeakable horrors that occurred in the real-life Reindeer Manor around a century ago. Those who survive will find themselves forced to face the evils of the 13th Street Morgue, where an entire family was once murdered in cold blood. Then they'll make a descent into the Dungeon of Doom, which, in its heyday, was a saloon where several townspeople fell over dead after drinking tainted well water and finding out they were over-charged for it. If that description fails to send shivers up your spine, consider this: unlike at some haunted attractions, the spooks at Reindeer Manor can and may touch visitors at any time, meaning you may just find yourself one of the manor's newest residents before the night is through.

  • Santa's Wonderland
    The North Pole's most famous resident descends from his workshop to share the lights, fun, and food of the holiday with revelers at Santa's Wonderland. For 15 years, the larger-than-life Christmas experience has dazzled visitors with sparkling, colorful light displays that stretch more than 37 acres, following a path traversable by car, horse and carriage, or hay ride. Said to be one of the largest Christmas attractions in Texas, this yuletide haven has been delighting families for more than a decade. After gazing upon the 2.5 million twinkling L.E.D. bulbs, visitors can head over to Santa's Town to enjoy a bite of barbecue and continue the festivities. Trumpeted by the owners as a "Texas Christmas Village," the community invites guests to shop at an old Western ghost town and little ones to hop aboard a kids' train before meeting Santa and one of his reindeer. A walk-in snow globe makes for a great photo opportunity, and the newly opened dining and dance hall provides a venue for hours of merry-making. Marshall Frostbite, the park's smiling officer, encourages visitors to watch a nightly holiday movie on a large screen, run their fingers through the fur of the barn animals in the petting zoo, and try their hand at riding a mechanical bull.

  • Ellen's Amusement Center
    Since its opening in 1988, Ellen's Amusement Center has provided visitors with a full range of family fun, including mini golf, go-karts, and paintball. The 18-hole miniature golf course is littered with such whimsical obstructions as a diminutive oil rig, a mini rollercoaster, and the obligatory windmill. Racers negotiate hairpin curves on the tire-lined go-kart track. A crossfire of chromatic projectiles enlivens four paintball fields, where players dive behind bunkers on the speedball courses or camouflage themselves as commando squirrels on the woods field. The facility also boasts batting cages equipped for hardball and softball as well as a redemption arcade filled with two stories' worth of video games.

  • Dinosaur World Texas
    Dinosaur World lets modern-day adventurers see what the world was like when dinosaurs ruled the earth. More than 150 life-size dinosaurs peer imposingly from the hillsides, crane their necks up through native trees, and stomp through prairie fields at the theme parks that stretch out over 20-plus acres of land in Texas, Florida, and Kentucky. The fiberglass, steel, and concrete dinosaurs reach up to 80 feet in length, and are built according to the latest scientific discoveries about what dinosaurs looked like. Starting November 8, visitors will see 20 dinos come to life at the new animatronic dinosaur exhibit. Visitors who want to experience what it's like to be a paleontologist can dig for fossils at the Fossil Dig and uncover a life-size stegosaurus skeleton from under the sand in the Boneyard. The Dino Gem Excavation lets explorers uncover something entirely different?real minerals and gems?and a geode cracker lets them split geodes to reveal their beautiful crystals. Before leaving, visitors can play on the dinosaur-themed playground and check out the Prehistoric Museum to see a variety of cast and real fossils.
