Inside Texas Rock Gym, over 14,000 square feet of climbable surface wait to be gripped and clambered over by novice and expert climbers, who navigate routes that are regularly altered to keep things fresh. The gym’s mandatory orientation ensures that each visitor observes proper safety measures during their climb. Following orientation, climbers can strap themselves to a harness at one of more than 40 rope stations and begin top-rope climbing up lofty heights, while more advanced climbers lead trips up over complex courses or the stone faces of former presidents. Climbers can also skip the harnesses altogether and try their hand at bouldering across height-restricted surfaces, or head to one of the gym’s Tai Chi or Yoga classes.
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.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
After having children of my own, I discovered how difficult it can be to find a nice, secure place for them to play and release some energy. Seeing the faces of the kids light up when they enter the inflatable room is the best part of this job. They enter the facility thinking it is just another business?until they see the inflatables and that's when the excitement begins.
What is one fun, unusual fact about your business?
We have an indoor inflatable room where kids can run around and have some fun without being outside in the heat.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Arcade room is also part of the weekday play, and it doesn't require coins. On weekdays only, unlimited play runs Monday?Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Kids also receive a drink and a snack with their entrance during these times. Weekends are reserved for private parties.
Friendly hostesses welcome in parties of little princesses or grown-up empresses for enchanting themed celebrations within Posh Tea Parties' frill-filled pink-and-white tearoom. Parties for young ones begin with girls sifting through the theme-specific outfit finery that turns them into princesses, 19th-century ladies, or world travelers replete with pink passports stamped for every country's tea they taste. Once dressed, girls can practice their manners or check for homework-completing genies while topping off compatriots' cups of tea and snacking on an array of artfully presented sandwiches, cupcakes, and chips.
Parties can be upgraded with a slew of exciting extras, which can augment parties with a dessert-filled snack bar, extra themed activities, and sashes or tiaras that let the birthday girl flaunt her special status without ordering all the kingdom's dragons to light her birthday candles. Meanwhile, adults can put on their own lace-lined shindigs, which eschew the dressing up and playtime activities for each attendee's own fanciful attire and a bevy of more mature amusement.
