  • Skateland Roller Skating Center
    Wheels glide gracefully across Skateland Roller Skating Center's indoor rink to a soundtrack of popular music and gleeful shrieks. Guests don rolling shoes while capering to Disney tunes, which frequently inspire hand-holding, friend-making, and adopting a wisecracking animal sidekick. All ages stir and stomp as they skim across the hardwood to the sounds of Top 40 hits and hip-hop songs, and skaters can upgrade their skill levels at Saturday morning skate lessons. All-inclusive party packages are fun options for birthday, bachelorette, or office-related celebrations and safer than traditional icicle-jousting tournaments.

  • Indy House of Terror
    At Indy House of Terror, visitors creep down a shadowy outdoor trail that winds through five acres and dead ends before a manor full of frightful and occasionally comical chambers. Tiptoe through a labyrinth of ghosts and grim décor before navigating the haunted house's rooms, which teem with costumed actors, deranged black cats, green-faced ghouls, and snuggly tax attorneys. The Indy House of Terror's staff tone down the frights by keeping the lights on for kids ages 5–10 during a 6:30 p.m.–7 p.m. showing, while the full experience for ages 11 and up runs from 7 p.m.–11 p.m. Each fearsome journey typically takes 25–30 minutes to complete, after which guests restore energy levels by gobbling down hot dogs, sodas, and chips or by tucking 9-volt batteries into their armpits.

  • Ebash Video Game Center
    Established: 2004 Handicap Accessible: Yes Staff Size: 2?10 people Parking: Parking lot Reservations/Appointments: Optional Most popular offering: Three hours for $10 Pro Tip: Weekends are the busiest time, but also the most fun with more gamers all playing together. Good for Kids: Yes Walk-ins Welcome: Yes Q&A with Zack Johnson, Owner, Founder What sets your business apart from your competition? We are the only facility of our kind that offers fun weekend overnight events for middle- and high-school video-game enthusiasts. We are also [an] eSports tournament facility. What was the inspiration for starting this business? Zack Johnson, started this business after holding lock-in events at his church while he was the youth director. He decided it would be easier to set up the equipment somewhere permanently and charge by the hour for use. All of the stores feature lock-ins every single Friday and Saturday night, and there are major events every holiday. What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer? Parents are continuously thankful for creating such a family-friendly place to leave their kids, and the kids never want to leave. What?s your favorite part about your job? We love getting to know all of our gamers, both young and old. It is also great to watch situations like a college football lineman sit down next to a small, shy, high-school freshman and instantly they have a bond through the game they are playing together. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Many people ask why they would play at our facility when they own the games at home. We always explain that it is the social aspect that draws customers to us, not just the number of systems and games we offer. Instead of playing alone in your bedroom or basement with a headset, you can sit next to friends both old and new and give them a high five at the end of a game.

In warm weather, sounds of outdoor film screenings and more than 80 live concerts reverberate through the hills and trees.

The city's parks also inject their entertainment with a bit of education. The hilltop Garfield Park Arts Center organizes live performances and classes in visual and performing arts. Eagle Creek Park](http://bit.ly/1j2TWNp)?the parks system's crown jewel?celebrates nature. Its more than 4,300 acres of forested terrain take visitors out of the city, but attractions such as the aerial ropes course, Go Ape, and the live reptile and amphibian exhibits at the Earth Discovery Center convince them to stay.
