Fort Hill Bowling Center rings the bell between balls and pins as competitors unleash rotating jabs across fully automated lanes. Each day of the week, the facility resonates with the unabashed point scoring of friendly matches or league play. A snack bar keeps fingers properly fueled, and a video jukebox volunteers to cast a tuneful tone across otherwise thunderous frames. After final point totals are tallied, teams can continue to feed their cravings for spherical competition on a pool table, which is far safer than stealing a rottweiler's tennis ball during games of Steal the Rottweiler's Tennis Ball.

When the swirls of smoke clear, the 22nd century appears in all its neon glory. Well, not the actual 22nd century. But FunQuest certainly evokes the future with its multi-level laser tag arena, where players clad in vests dodge incoming beams while firing their own. Colorful obstacles glow in the dark and provide cover throughout the space, which is big enough to fit 20 competitors.

The rest of FunQuest contains equally family-friendly attractions, including a hardwood maple skating center. After optional lessons for all ages, visitors glide along to upbeat tunes on quad or inline skates, and participate in classic games like the limbo and hokey pokey.

Even more games can be found at the arcade. These ones dispense tickets, and once players have collected enough, they can exchange them for prizes, such as an oversized bow for the family giant who had to wait in the parking lot.

Finally, for youngsters under the age of 10, the PlayQuest indoor playground has plenty of slides to ride, bouncy floors to traverse, and tubes to crawl through.

The chefs at Rivermont Pizza regularly take a creative bent with their wood-fired pies, such as The Hutcherson, which arranges caramelized onions, cheddar, granny-smith slices, and virginia country ham over a layer of red sauce. Upscale ingredients such as pancetta, cremini mushrooms, and goat cheese regularly top crusts, and hoagies hug fillings of locally made tofu, cherry peppers, or thinly shaved roast beef. Committed to local harvesting, the basement-level eatery plucks nearby ingredients whenever possible, and though its wood-burning oven only holds five pizzas at a time, guests are invited to pass the time listening to live local bands, participating in trivia contests, or playing tiddlywinks with the roasted sweet-potato medallions on the wilted-spinach salad.
