Joking cries of “fore!” punctuate the convivial chatter, clinking glasses, and thwacking clubs at Beyond Golf Sports & Spirits, a full-service bar dotted with indoor golf simulators. From all sides of the bar, the simulators emit the glow of famous ocean, desert, and mountainside courses from around the world, including Pebble Beach and Spyglass Hill. The links come to life thanks to high-resolution photographs and GPS technology, and the simulators track drives accurately to within 1 yard. Though staffers stockpile a variety of clubs and putters, golfers may bring their own clubs or a collection of mannequin legs from home. Since players needn’t worry about chasing down balls, they can focus on improving their game with the help of the simulator’s swing breakdown, which targets the strengths and weaknesses of each player’s stance, arc, and swing.

Owners and chefs Roberto and Ana Meireles pile plates high with meticulously crafted dishes of beef, pork, poultry, and seafood made to order from fresh ingredients and traditional spices. Fried plantains, tropical fruit shakes, and Cuban sodas serve as plane tickets for the palate as lush foliage, cabana decor, and a working baggage claim evoke Caribbean climes. Libations from a brightly colored bar balance the subtle spice of the restaurant's signature red Cuban creole sauce. Gusto Cuban Cafe's patio bustles during the warmer months, and salsa dancing on weekends, like getting stuck on a slide, gives people an excuse to shake their hips.

During BounceU's parties, kids bound through inflatable play structures—and occasionally glow in the dark. At the center's Cosmic bounce parties, the main lights are replaced by special-effects lighting, which coaxes light from glow-in-the-dark accessories. The center's new location, in operation since May 2013, complements its shindigs with open-play sessions and more structured classes, appropriate for kids aged 2 and older.

Underwater World's Padi–certified staff helps gill-less humans to develop their sea legs through hands-on scuba instruction. The 90-minute, in-pool Discover Scuba Diving class caters to beginners. Before divers slip under the water's surface, an instructor imparts aquatic fundamentals, such as how to breathe through a regulator and make proper fish faces. Underwater World provides all the necessary gear for skillful submerging, including goggles and air tanks. Those who find themselves under the spell of the sea after the session can continue taking classes with Underwater World, eventually removing their flipper training wheels and exploring bodies of water without a dive-master chaperone.

At Defy Gravity, jumpers of all ages bounce, flip, and pirouette atop a massive 6,000 square-foot trampoline designed with NASA-developed rebound material and a laser-cut steel frame to support as many as 66 people. Though the trampoline?s most traditional uses include simple jumping or amateur gymnastics, Defy Gravity also uses it to introduce vertical feints to dodge-ball and volleyball matches and add a gently forgiving floor to fitness classes that burn as many as 1,000 calories in an hour. A flexible support system reduces the impact of jumps on delicate joints and flawless high ponytails, while angled walls alleviate worries of falling off the sides. Trained court monitors stay ever-vigilant, making sure jumpers stay safe with complimentary helmets and ankle-support shoes and size-specific jumping zones. Jumpers can also experience a state-of-the-art attraction with Prismatic Explosion, an interactive lighting system.

When visitors call a ceasefire with gravity, they can check out a laser maze. Inspired by Mission: Impossible, the maze challenges participants to climb, duck, crawl, and shimmy through a 3D web of laser lights. If they fail, a buzzer sounds and, somewhere, Tom Cruise begins to smile but doesn?t know why.

Aged six years, his bourbon whiskey recently received a double-gold medal at the esteemed San Francisco World Spirits Competition, joining the silver-medal-winning vodka on the boozy podium. At the wide-open, industrial-chic tasting room, visitors can sidle up to the bar to taste samples and cocktails, or gather around a table to stare deeply into each other's eyes.
