JumpStreet is an indoor trampoline park where taut floors and angled walls made of springy trampoline surfaces beckon children and adults to bounce back and forth or try aerodynamic flips and gravity-defying leaps. The arena is structured like a skateboard park, though bouncers don?t need any equipment to hop across the wall-to-wall planes or climb up, slide down, or spring off the tilted trampoline walls. Guests can hop on over to the springy dodgeball courts, where safe, competitive play is enhanced with ample bouncing, and arcades offer engaging activities for those who need to rest their feet. Scattered across JumpStreet?s various locations are an assortment of other safe, kinetic activities, including a bull ride, a multicolored maze, and a foam pit.
Taking a seat at an open easel, visitors at That Art Bar are presented with the many possibilities of the blank canvas that sits before them. Each session features a different work of art to be completed by the close of the three-hour class. Sipping on wine and other beverages brought from home, burgeoning artists use provided paints and brushes to daub their canvas following the step-by-step instruction?and live demonstration?of their teacher. Learning tips and tricks along the way, each painter will be able to take their masterpiece home at the end of the class to nail it up on the refrigerator.
Designed for kids under age 6, Giggles and Fun is a destination for tykes to explore, imagine, and interact with other kids. Tuesday through Friday, Open Play sessions welcome them to explore the center's Active and Imaginative areas of play, where they can climb, crawl, and jump, or dress up in costumes, read a book, and pretend to be an adult by paying their parents' bills. Then there are birthday parties, which accommodate up to 30 kids and can include play time, balloons, and a decked-out room decorated in a chosen theme.
Westend Boxing Gym has one simple focus: to get visitors in shape.

Those seeking some friendly competition can join the boxing team and spar, but members are welcome to train in the sport without fighting anything but a punching bag bearing a picture of a parking ticket.

Steve and May Chadick both grew up surrounded by American saddlebred horses, making their rounds as competitors in the southwest circuit before becoming trainers as adults. The pair channels more than 50 years of equine expertise into Vantage Point Farm. They and their highly trained staff devote themselves to priming green riders and steeds for recreational trots around arenas as well as struts in front of show judges. Riding instructors lead lessons for equestrians aged 5 or older on gentle, reliable horses.
At day camps held during winter and summer breaks, kids enjoy daily rides and tackle responsibilities in the barn including grooming and tacking. Overnight camps for advanced riders culminate in an end-of-week horse show. The farm also boards horses in stalls spacious enough to also accommodate the ventriloquists who speak for them.
