A classic 80s aesthetic immediately envelops folks as they walk through the door of Elite Cafe & Billiards. Or rather, the 80's version of the 50s. A primary-colored art-deco bar, complete with rows of red bar-stools, chrome, and neon pink stands as the centerpiece of the cafe. The main attraction lies just past the bar: rows of pool tables lit by hanging red lamps. The 17 pool tables?all nine feet long?come surrounded by plenty of room to maneuver, giving players enough space to pull off trick shots and Charleston celebration dances. Back at the bar, pool players can sit and enjoy beer, soda, chips, and beer nuts.

Say you're bored with dashing frantically through the same old battle zone as the sounds of war drum around you. In that case, it's time to head to Red Star Combat, where no two games ever have to be alike. First, players can choose from eight settings for their laser weapons, so they can simulate firing a rifle or a battle cannon depending on the situation. Then there's the 30,000-square-foot field itself: stacks of tires, empty barrels, and even the walls are all moveable, so the space can be reconfigured regularly. Between games, players can kick back at the onsite bar, Base PX, for a bottle of beer and some snacks while lesser, non-laser-enhanced sports play on the big-screen TVs.

The roar of engines bounces off 20-foot ceilings as go-karts zip by at up to 42 miles per hour. The track winds through the 138,000-square-foot space as up to 14 racers compete in eight-minute sessions, their lap times recorded on projection screens for spectators to keep track of or use for their next lottery ticket. At Melrose Park Indoor Grand Prix, drivers first undergo a 15-minute safety briefing before racing, and afterward, go home with a boast-worthy printout of their lap times. Each of the facility's 37 single-seater carts is powered by eco-friendly propane gas and goes through regular rigorous testing to prevent malfunction or acquisition of an English accent.
