When drivers take to the track at Fastimes' Indoor Karting, they follow in the treads of professional racers such as Mario Andretti and Tony Stewart. Amateurs and visiting professionals alike race at up to 40 miles per hour on the 900-foot bi-level track, whose asphalt and epoxy-resin surface helps karts grip and make clean turns. Each of Fastimes' sleek Sodikarts is outfitted with roll bars and caution lights, which team up with seat belts and the facility's rentable helmets for optimum safety. Fastimes' onsite Italian deli, The Final Lap, bolsters drivers' strength with handmade pizzas and invites drivers to linger over beer and wine after the day's races are through.
Beech Grove Bowl keeps white-bodied pins on edge with bowling lanes and a kitchen open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Available on every lane, bumpers provide pendulum-armed patrons and their orb-shaped counterparts a surefire way to knock down pins and evade gutters as effectively as arcade frogs dodge heavy highway traffic. Alley allies can also use this game pass for Beech Grove Bowl's weekly Rock 'n' Roll Bowl event, which showcases customer-controlled music, eye-enticing special lighting, and festive balls that launch commemorative T-shirts and glitter from their holes.
Within Buccaneer Bay Water Park Center’s sprawling 9,000 square feet of space, the delighted shrieks of frolicking children ricochet off the cavernous ceilings. Surrounded by ranks of slowly nodding palm trees, kids scramble up the sides of a replica pirate ship before whooshing down the slick red slides, landing feet-first in the clean water, or else skimming the surface like a smooth rock or a pelican thrown overhand. The churning warmth of a hot tub turns tension into soothed sighs, which drift toward an arcade full of flashing redemption machines. Gaggles of youngsters celebrating birthdays cannonball into the pool, fueled by slices of cake.
Indiana Beach, with more than 40 rides and attractions nestled on the shores of Lake Shafer, delights nearly 750,000 visiting thrill-seekers annually. Six rollycoasters challenge guests with spins, drops, and the mathematics of mentally computing children's heights into inches. Classic rides such as the tilt-a-whirl and bumper cars tickle youngsters with antiquated charm, and Dr. Frankenstein's Haunted Castle spooks families with ghouls, goblins, and ghosts. The Steel Hawg delivers daredevils 10 stories into the atmosphere before plummeting at a 111-degree angle, a drop designed to kick-start hearts and uncook chickens. Guests can dip their little piggies in the sand beach and swimming area or embark on aquatic adventures on six waterslides that twist swimmers through high-speed turns before plunking them into a splashdown pool.
