At The Bay Water Park, patrons can go surfing in the Midwest. Or at least, simulate the experience. Dubbed The BayRider, the park's surfing simulator allows park visitors to try their hand at surfing or boogie boarding while standing atop a thin sheet of water, instead of a board. There's only one requirement: they must be 48+ inches tall. There's plenty of classic water park fun to complement the simulator, too. The park boasts three pools, and one, the Leisure Pool, works like a huge, lazy river, complete with rippling waves. That's where swimsuit-clad visitors zoom down two massive, tube-shaped slides. Alternatively, there's a play pool where visitors can swim or play pick-up water basketball, and a family pool: a watery playground complete with a giant dumping bucket.

Lash Pole Studio spotlights the intersection of fitness and femininity with a full schedule of saucy, women-only workout classes led by supportive instructors. Zumba sashays in on the tamer end of the spectrum, getting hips shimmying, hearts pumping, and muscles flirting to Latin-inspired beats, and Stretch-N-Stilettos, a signature Lash Pole Studio class, quizzes shoes on proper form while blending flexibility with claw-heeled feistiness.

At 280 Paintball, players who can combine speed and stealth will prove most formidable on the indoor and outdoor battlefields. Bracketed by towering trees, the outdoor theatre fills a field with wooden spindles, massive drums, and small platforms, favoring those who can turn the obstacles to their tactical advantage. Inside, splotches of paint blot the red and blue cover bags that serve as shelter for retreating platoons to hide from ambushes or pause to glue festive glitter onto their markers. 280 Paintball hands out both traditional and smaller, .50-caliber paintballs, which hit their mark with less impact and are a favorable alternative for young paintball warriors.
