The attractions at Jabbersons Fun Center present a variety of ways for kids to have fun. In the arcade, guests can hop on a motorcycle or skateboard at game cabinets in hopes of earning a course record or impressing Tony Hawk. During bumper card rides, kids 5 and older cruise the track, crashing into families in friends for laughs along the way. The fun center also features a laser maze that shows kids what it might be like to be a cat burglar or a super spy as they sneak around light beams to get to the finish line.

Sprawling within the bustling confines of a shopping center, the Lloyd Center Ice Rink invites skaters of all pirouette proficiencies to careen across its slick surface, carving intricate lines through the thick, frozen layer of ice. Open-skate sessions allow amateur ice-dancers to hammer out routines, or frolicking families to test theories of friction. The seasonal vista can be rented out for private parties, and guests can amp up their Olympics resume during skating lessons for all ages.

Many traditional artists paint linen or sculpt stone. For an agri-artist such as Craig Easterly, though, a cornfield makes a perfectly good canvas. For more than a decade, Craig has been chiseling through the 12-foot stalks of his 5-acre field to create what is from the ground a maze of rustling green tunnels and from above a stunning tableau of Portland themes and images. "I like to create designs that resonate with Portlanders and our friends in the greater Portland area," he said in a 2011 press release. One year, his work cut the city's bridges and rivers into the corn; in another he incorporated the Portland Timbers insignia into his maze.

Each fall, these Sauvie Island fields birth both Craig's famous corn maze and its evil twin, the Haunted Maize, which spooks its visitors at night with costumed actors and eerie animatronics. Along with its mazes, The Maize at The Pumpkin Patch also sprouts fall-centric family-friendly activities. Overall-clad patrons bounce along on free hayrides, get crowned king of the hay mountain, or mimic the beastly accents of farm animals in the big red barn.

Inside Tac-Ops Indoor Airsoft's 6,000-square-foot arena, military and urban-warfare missions either succeed or fail. Either you capture the enemy’s flag or their stronghold remains. Either you disarm a deadly bomb or it destructively explodes. Either you snatch the secret documents or the classified details of Elvis’s location fall into the wrong hands.

Tac-Ops outfits each player not just with objective-based missions that call for occasional alliances and full-out battles, but also with the necessary airsoft gear and safety equipment. Once fully strapped, sharpshooters receive their mission orders and unleash themselves on a war zone swarming with jungle foliage and fluttering with red lights. Players test both their mettle and their aim as they plunge behind obstacles and slip between flittering crimson rays. To hasten their field time, each BB hurler can sign Tac-Ops Indoor Airsoft's waiver beforehand.

The recently renovated Hollywood Bowl, enchants guests with polished corridors and automated scorekeeping.

At Hollywood Bowl, guests can enjoy burgers and beers at Club Hollywood Sports Bar in the glow of 14 47-inch TVs. Both locations also boast their own arcade room, where players can compete in classic games such as Frogger, skee-ball, and seeing who can carve a marble bust of a Roman emperor the fastest.
