Visitors traveling through Challenger Learning Center's exhibits may feel they've fallen down Alice's rabbit hole. One moment, they're as tiny as a nanobot as they gaze at nanotechnology components developed for medicine, electronics, and space elevators. The next, they're giants who could bat the whole planet around with one well-aimed jump—that is, if the planet is the NASA projection globe across whose surface features of the sun, moon, and Earth flow in vivid color.

Other exhibits take visitors far out, with images snapped by the Hubble Space Telescope or deep inside, with the Body Plaza's skeletons, x-rays, and organ models. A wide slate of interactive programming engages youngsters' problem-solving and teamwork skills with activities such as simulated space missions, where they keep the astronauts entertained over the radios at mission control or assemble probes in the spacecraft while hurtling toward Mars.

The locations that comprise Paintball Tickets challenge hue-happy gamers to a range of combative revelry fought with air-powered paintbrushes. During games, referees maintain a fun and lighthearted wartime experience while competitors engage in capture-the-flag style strategy. As players navigate the terrain on a quest to invade the other team's territory and avoid epidemics of trenchfoot, they covertly scope opponents and peg them with bright-colored pellets to dull their chance at victory.

It's quite possible that many of the parents who bring their kids to RollerLand Skate Center spent their own childhoods at the rink. The Trevena family has run RollerLand for more than 30 years, long before America elected its first roller-skating president. In that time, the entertainment center has hosted countless parties, charity fundraisers, and regular skate sessions.

Today, RollerLand carries its past into the present. DJs play Top 40 hits as skaters roll across the 12,000 sq. ft. skating floor during open skates or Teen Nights on Fridays. Away from the rink, guests can find staple amenities, such as a concession stand that serves nachos and corndogs, arcade games that spew out redemption tickets, and colorful tubes that snake throughout a three-story play structure. One thing stands out, however¬—a large vault door that looks like something out of a heist movie. Inside waits the Laser Maze, an ever-changing game that challenges its participants to stretch and bend around bright green beams of light.

When founder Mirella discovered pole fitness, she realized it wasn't just a way to get in shape?it was also a way to express herself and feel confident. Pole fitness serves as Polesque Vixens's signature class, teaching the basics of spinning and climbing the pole through exercises that engage muscles throughout the body. As they get more experienced, students can move on to specialized sessions that focus on more challenging spins or inversions. Outside of fitness classes, the studio also hosts parties to celebrate special occasions and photo shoots that allow students to document their alluring moves without the strain of lengthy portrait-painting sessions.

When parents throw a party at Inflatable Fun, all they need to bring is the kids and a cake. A private party host serves up pizza and drinks, cuts up the cake, and even helps load presents into the family car. Meanwhile, all the parents have to do is kick back and look on as their kids bounce around the center's inflatable structures.

Inside the classic bounce house, kids learn what it would be like to live on a cloud or atop a giant's belly. In the 900-square-foot obstacle course, they ricochet through air-filled corridors as they search for the exit. Open play times never get too crowded, as the staff admits just up to 20 kids for each hour-long slot.
