Jumpin' Bellies invites kids to explore a 5,000-square-foot indoor playground designed completely for them. After kicking off their shoes, sock-clad feet scurry around the soft playground, slipping down curvy slides, climbing up and down a play maze, and racing imaginary cars in the arcade. Come snack time, kids can take a break to enjoy pizza, cupcakes, and popcorn, which are available for purchase, though parents may want to bring their own airplane-powered spoons. To make special events feel even more special, Jumpin' Bellies also offers birthday party packages that include food and drinks, decorations, and unlimited play time for guests.
Country Club of Miami promotes the game of golf with 36 championship holes on two beautifully-manicured golf courses. Founded in 1961, the club has hosted notable PGA players such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, and Lee Trevino, as well as celebrities such as Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, and Bing Crosby. Carrying its commitment to quality, the course is complemented by a grass driving range with large pitching, putting and chipping areas. It is here where on-site PGA professionals assist golfers in private instruction, group lessons, golf clinics for juniors and adults, Get Golf Ready programs, and the after school program 2-Day Golf School.
With state of the art 4G synthetic turf soccer fields spread across Miami, Soccer 5 has become a premier South Florida destination for soccer, football, and f?tbol lovers alike. The program offers a variety of kids' camps, in which junior players up to 15 years old benefit from highly technical coaching, drills, and scrimmages. Adults can get in on the fun, too, with leagues and tournaments. The smaller fields allow for 5- and 7-a-side matches, which means players get more touches on the ball and opportunities to befriend the referee. Their fields are also available for rent for team practices, birthday parties, and private pickup games.
The Immortal Dash is designed to challenge the strength, stamina, reflexes, and guts of each racer. Obstacles such as mud pits and vertical walls pepper the course, putting each participant?s valor to the test as they race for prizes and bragging rights. Though the course is designed for the mighty, people of all fitness levels can participate, as the only real determinant of success is having the courage to tough it out to the finish. Despite the challenging nature of the course, everyone enjoys a few smiles, and each racer is encouraged to don their most inventive costume?a prize goes to the participant with the best getup.

When paintballers feel ready for action but aren't sure where they'd like to do battle, they point their browsers to www.paintballpromos.com. There they'll find packages for nearby paintball fields, so they don't have to litter their own backyards with empty oil barrels and fill tiny water balloons with tempera paint. Packages usually include the rental of a marker and mask; paintballs and air fills are an extra charge at the field.
