Featuring more than 20,000 square feet of play space, iJump's two locations delight pintsize adventurers with indoor attractions and all-inclusive birthday parties. After conquering inflatable slides and imaginary city-states, kids can hone their racing chops on two types of age-appropriate go-karts at iJump's original location. In addition, a 20-foot rock wall beckons explorers to strive towards its summit, and arcade games set kids on a quest for prizes. At the newer location in Crestwood, parents can relax in the lounge outfitted with a huge HDTV and free WiFi—amenities also available at the other facility—while kids safely submerge into the ball pit in search of lost wallets filled with prospective business clients. Committed to clean fun, iJump provides hand-sanitizer stations throughout its spaces.
Gleaming bowling balls rumble down 40 polished wooden lanes at Junction Lanes Family Entertainment Center, where clusters of bowlers lace up multicolored kicks and spend an hour waltzing to the tune of clattering pins. On weekends, regular lights and just-whitened smiles give way to the black lights, strobe lights, disco balls, and rousing music of cosmic bowling.
Mini golfers can head over to Junction Linx, a course awash in neon obstacles and vivid arboreal murals. Sculpted lions, rhinos, and alligators snap at passing putters in the jungle-themed portion of the course; homages to patriotic landmarks surround the other nine holes, featuring replicas of the Liberty Bell, the Lincoln Memorial, and Jack Nicklaus’s backyard.
At The Depot Grill, players sink teeth into piping-hot pizzas from Buchi Z Pizza, creamy scoops of Bruster’s Ice Cream, or steaming buns loaded with Nathan’s Famous hot dogs. This sustenance shores up gamers so they can hone their reflexes at the arcade.
More than 50 species of butterflies flit between the petals of an ever-changing array of exotic plants inside the greenhouse as sunlight streams in through the glass ceilings. Outside, experts launch owls, falcons, and eagles into the air to fly—and many come back down to land on the arms of the audience. Since 1952, the staffers of Callaway Gardens’ educational nature preserve have immersed visitors in their passion for wildlife management and conservation across more than 4,600 acres of demonstration gardens, arboretums, and outdoor sports attractions.
At the 5-acre Horticultural Center, visitors wander through three conservatories, a grotto, and an outdoor garden and stand at the base of a 22-foot indoor waterfall. They can also soar up to 30 feet above the forest floor on a five-zipline treetop course replete with ladders, logs, and netting or practice their lumberjack calls on a 10-mile discovery trail through the trees. Staffers regularly lead guided hikes through the woods, hold a range of butterfly shows and cultural workshops, and help facilitate seasonal events—including circus, music, and theater performances and a holiday light show. On overnight stays, they welcome guests into lodgings such as a rustic inn, 155 secluded pine cottages, and 57 stone and wood villas with balconies.
A tiger sits beneath the setting sun, her tail beating the ground as her gaze locks onto a man passing by. Luckily, the two aren’t deep in the jungle, but at Wild Animal Safari outside Atlanta, where guests view these majestic animals from the safety of slow-moving vehicles. During tours, personal cars and guided buses wind through 3.5 miles of the park’s territory, passing the habitats of 650 animals such as camels, zebras, and american bison. After the driving tour, safari groups set out on foot to spy smaller animals, including lemurs and peacocks, with opportunities to feed and pet some species. Afterward, pizza and burgers await the hungry at the safari café, and the Wild Animal gift shop offers mementos such as T-shirts and stuffed safari guides.
The thrilling courses at Daredevil Ziplines were originally built for the adrenaline junkies on the finale of the action series The Controller: Medal of Honor Warfighter. Happy shrieks now spiral out from members of the general public as they hit the 50 mile-per-hour speeds experienced by the stars of the show. The Dare Ya! ride whisks participants downhill for 600 feet before being stopped abruptly on the bungee braking system, which then sends them whipping out over a lake and stopping gently. They then glide down among sweet-smelling pine boughs and make a soft landing.
The Aerial Challenge combines a zipline with an aerial obstacle course, including a suspended log walk, ladders, a swinging bridge and platform, and rope walks. Riders can end the challenge with a short walk to a bridge overlooking the Tuck spring, which flows from the roots of a century old oak tree. Streams babble above and below the ground, carving the limestone into organic-looking curlicues covered with moss and ferns like somebody who won’t get off the Jurassic Park ride.
