Pump It Up's Inflatable Party Zone balloons kids’ excitement with an enormous playspace that welcomes open-play sessions and private parties. Tots 34" and taller run and leap in huge bounce houses, soar down an inflatable slide, and practice for future zero-gravity triathlon events in a bouncy jousting arena and basketball court. Various open-play sessions give kids of all ages free rein to the fun zone while accompanying parents stand by to officiate bounce-house property-line disputes. Pump It Up also boasts myriad celebratory and special-event shindigs, with friendly staffers supervising jumpers, and serving pizza and favors in a vibrant party room.

Through the tree line at Adventure Zone Paintball, visitors can often hear the scattered reports of paintball markers and the thwack of their projectiles finding their targets. These friendly conflicts take place on seven fields, each ranging in size and configuration to encourage different combat situations. The largest is Hidden Valley, a heavily forested arena interwoven by trails and spotted with cover. The Outback encourages long-distance play with its central clearing, with players hiding in sniper towers, squatting behind plank walls, and standing awkwardly to pretend they are just trees. The small Urban Chaos field facilitates fast-paced games as teams duck behind overturned barrels and underneath the gate of a pretend car wash.

For more than 30 years, Raceway to Fun's grounds have offered visitors six outlets for their adrenaline. Two miniature golf courses beckon players to putt their way around large rocks and down angled fairways or traverse bridges to strike through loops and other obstacles. In a pool, participants as young as six board colorful bumper boats whose guns can spray off even the most severe of grass stains. Nearby, sharp turns on a winding go-kart track challenge drivers behind the wheel of single or double-rider karts. Golfers at the driving range launch balls over green fields while sluggers stare into the eyes of 16 pitching machines at the batting cages. Visitors can engage in each activity until dusk, when the sun setting on the horizon and the sky fading to dark blue signal both closing time and the start of the man in the moon's terrible stand-up routine.

As night falls, participants in the noncompetitive Rave Run pull on neon T-shirts, don glow-in-the dark glasses, and stuff their pockets with glow sticks. Spectators look on as the throng of illuminated runners, which includes kids and adults, make their way through a 5-kilometer course that winds through city streets.

The event culminates with an after party, where a DJ spin tunes and powerful lasers cast out beams that illuminate wide smiles and the secret locations of any lost arks in the vicinity. Fog machines and CO2 jets help create a high-adrenaline atmosphere as attendees dance with their glow-in-the-dark compatriots. All the fun is for a good cause; The Rave Run partners with a local charity in each participating city.

Action Packed Paintball’s arsenal of combat settings include two outdoor and two indoor locations. Each outdoor field features an urban combat course that conceals opponents behind plywood structures, and a speedball course dotted with inflatable obstacles. After differences are settled on the field, outdoor combatants can retreat to onsite grilling and picnic areas. For those who prefer indoor face-offs, Action Packed Paintball keeps its well-lit Maple Plain location, like the well-orchestrated battles of the Gallic Wars, at a steady 70 degrees year-round. The location’s course is set up for speedball, and it also boasts a private party room for friendly revelry. Alternatively, the indoor Minneapolis location invites paint slingers to spar on an urban combat field that dots green turf with stony structures. All locations offer free CO2 and compressed air fills.

The Stomping Ground's five coaches cultivate an environment encouraging creative exploration and experimentation in physical performance arts. Despite the studio's name, however, very little of this exploration happens on the hardwood floor. Instead, aerial fitness gear such as lyras, hoops, and slings hang from four rig points affixed to 13-foot ceilings. The equipment is used for beginner-through-advanced sessions in aerial dance fitness that introduce participants to the spectrum of foot knots and poses necessary to create aesthetically pleasing performances while keeping away from the floor in case someone claims it's just turned into lava. The studio is also outfitted with two poles for pole-fitness classes and has ample space for dynamic ashatanga yoga classes. A wall of mirrors allows students to watch their own progress during class, while a stereo system keeps them moving with upbeat music.
