At Rainier Speedway, amateurs and pros battle it out in high-velocity races around a flat, outdoor dirt track, as a roaring crowd of families, racing enthusiasts, and hopelessly lost Avon salesladies cheer on the motorcycle and quad racers from the grassy knoll. The track offers enticing eats for famished race-fans, and though pit access is not included in the price of this deal, daring first-daters can pay $2 at the gate to gain access to the pit, where the motor-powered jockeys zoom about at a dizzying speed.
When the staff at Charlie's Safari claims to have the largest indoor play structure in the area, many will find it hard to argue with them as they look around the 22,000-square-foot jungle-themed facility. Here, kids scamper in, on, and around five levels of brightly-colored mazes and slides, air-filled bouncers, and a two-story laser tag arena. As kids unleash their imaginations, parents escape to their own lodge, secure in the knowledge that their children are being protected by the facility's Code ADAM safety system. Families can refuel at the on-site restaurant, which boasts housemade pizza sauce and corn dog batter. Charlie's Safari also hosts parties to celebrate children turning one year older and one year closer to being able to do their parents' taxes.

Both classes run 50 minutes and are limited to two or three students, ensuring each student receives individualized attention, and there's enough oxygen available to prevent gasping.
