  • GoFly Water Aviation
    Some of us will never know what it's like to have superpowers, but a day spent at GoFly Water Aviation offers a glimpse into the magic of human flight. By harnessing water-jet propulsion, GoFly's equipment gives aquatic pilots the power to soar up to 30 feet above the surface with enough control to perform flips and twists or dive into the water with the same speed and grace as a caffeinated dolphin. GoFly's futuristic, airborne vessels take three forms: the flyboard, the Jetovator, and the hoverboard. All three of these vehicles derive their skygrazing power from a jet stream of high-pressure water attached via a long hose. For the flyboards, the streams shoot out from a pair of boots strapped to the feet, forcing pilots to maintain balance?and execute tricks?by flexing their legs. A trip on the Jetovator, by contrast, is like riding a flying motorcycle: after straddling the bicycle-like contraption, pilots steer with a handlebar as a rear jet provides enough thrust to sail through the air. Lastly, the hoverboard is like surfing above the waves; its surfboard-like platform shoots out water to lift a person high into the air, where they can execute tricks and accelerate to speeds of up to 25 MPH. For all of these adventures, GoFly offers photo and video packages, letting thrill-seekers relive their experience in HD footage instead of hiring an old Greek poet to narrate the tale every time.

  • Riviera Community Club
    Established: 1966 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 2?10 people Handicap Accessible: Yes Parking: Parking lot Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Executive golf course, lake-side dining Recommended Age Group: All ages Pro Tip: Be sure to purchase your ferry tickets to Anderson Island ahead of time for a stress-free trip. Though just a 20-minute ferry ride from the mainland, Puget Sound's Anderson Island is nonetheless a world away. It has few roads, no stoplights, and a single general store, but also plenty of reasons to stay. The 8-mile island, the sound's southernmost, brims with wildlife and scenery provided by rugged, untouched terrain and Mt. Rainier jutting from the horizon. The Riviera Community Club provides just enough civilization with its nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, campground, and 22-slip private marina. It also boasts a lakeside restaurant with picturesque views.
