Dad’s Broadway Skateland's rink entertains feet bored of walking with some blissful smooth sailing. After lacing up their wheely-boots (a $1 value/pair), skaters can grab hold of the beat and roll contentedly through the hours, performing elaborate figure-11s or skating against the flow in order to change the past. Owner Randy "Dad" Dryk powers gilde parties with music spanning disco to Christian rock, with bass-heavier hip-hop and R & B on Friday nights from 7:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. On Thursday nights from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., parents skate free with their children to a Dad-curated selection of family-friendly grooves.

With paintball gear on, 10,000 sq. ft. can seem like a vast jungle. Specifically, one where the animals have figured out how to operate paintball markers. The outdoor paintball arena at Celebration Station hosts friendly competitions between players of all skill level, who fire salvos from behind obstacles. That competitive zone only makes up a small portion of the fun, however. Outside alone, visitors find a towering rock-climbing wall, batting cages, and a go-kart track that twists and turns across a quarter mile. Bumper boats collide nearby, while waterfalls cascade down the landscapes of an 18-hole mini-golf course.

Arcade tokens take over indoors, where 100 games present visitors with a challenging dilemma: should they master every one of the racing simulators, or take a break for a game of laser tag? Luckily, they can ponder their choices over a meat lovers pizza at the onsite restaurant.

At The Gentle Zoo, youngsters feed pigs, pat ducklings, and interact with the other fuzzy residents. Elsewhere on the zoo’s 10 acres, guests can leap about on the bounce house, blast corn from the corn cannon, navigate the maze, or enjoy a leisurely ride on the tractor train. Such attractions enthrall kids at onsite birthday parties, while the mobile petting zoo’s 12–15 staff-supervised animals offer nuzzles and create memories in children's minds. The creatures also hit the road for the animal-encounters program, which combines hands-on animal contact with educational 45-minute presentations. The Gentle Zoo donates its proceeds from the program to its Creature Connection, Inc. nonprofit, which rehabilitates rescue animals before they participate in outreach programs for foster children and at-risk youth.

The trusty team of Quarter Horses at Broken Bow Ranch escorts visitors over the sprawling pastures and winding trails that grace the 1,400-acre working cattle ranch. Their owner, Gay Leigh Bingham, draws upon 25 years of experience when teaching new riders the subtleties of proper horsemanship. During private and group riding lessons, she aims to teach riders the proper way to confidently command a horse so they can ride comfortably on trails or help equine companions practice self-control when trotting through apple orchards.

Though bowling is a timeless pastime, Rowlett Bowl-A-Rama keeps its lanes up to date. Players send balls gliding down 26 synthetic lanes, where their scores are kept by a computer, so no one has to brush up on their times tables before they play. Bumpers can be called into action at any lane, and on some nights the black lights illuminate the lanes. When it's time for a bowling break, players can escape to the 40-game arcade or grab a bite or drink at Splits Sports Grill, the onsite restaurant and bar.
