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.
