Open 364 days a year, Kart Ranch entertains Baton Rouge– and New Orleans–area families with a variety of outdoor games and activities. Engage in family-friendly adrenaline pumping by zipping around the tire-laden go-kart track, or test the buoyancy of your brood by squirting each other to splashy submission on the outdoor bumper boats. Batting cages are smartly covered to allow players to practice pitches through rain, shine, and plagues of squirrels, while the adventure golf course sports soothing waterfalls and fountains as players go head-to-head for par-gaining rights. Activity tickets can also be used toward kiddie karts, water wars, and playground admission, while game tokens can be used toward arcade and skill games, which in turn reward tickets that can be exchanged for prizes such as toys, candy, or self-propelled laser doomsday howitzers.

Love Swimming's team of talented teachers turns landlubbers into merpersons with their 30-minute swimming lessons for students of all ages and skill levels. In Water Babies classes, designed for children between 6 months and 3 years of age, parents dive in along with their children to help them develop motor skills, confidence, and nascent sitcom plots. Beginners can sign up for the level 1 and 2 classes, which impart water-safety basics such as floating and introductory swim strokes, and experienced water treaders can opt for level 3 and 4 sessions, which introduce the butterfly, back, breast, and freestyle strokes. During the even more advanced Stroke School class, Love Swimming's water whisperers bridge the gap between casual and competitive swimming with drill-based instruction. All classes are held in one of the facilities' warm and inviting saltwater pools, and feature an intimate five-to-two student-teacher ratio, ensuring everyone gets plenty of advice, personal instruction, and turns to host underwater tea parties.
