At The Party Zone USA—a 44,000-square-foot indoor-recreation center that has recently changed hands to a new owner—guests satisfy their need for speed during hours of active play. Youngsters and adults alike accelerate through twists, turns, and vertical drops on a dragon-themed roller coaster or test their mettle on other amusement-park rides. A Lazer Runner arena and an aeroball court let patrons improve their dodging skills, whereas bumper cars give wee ones a chance to bash into their friends and safely practice parallel parking. Kids can also accrue long strings of prize-earning tickets inside the center's huge arcade.
The assortment of activities and live performances makes the entertainment complex an ideal spot for birthday parties and other group events. The new owners are also planning to add a food court with snacks such as Nathan's Famous hot dogs, Hershey's ice cream, and Starbucks coffee.
Masteringcentral's technicians have spent the past 30 years helping musicians and performers fine-tune their songs. Inside the mastering facility, they run tracks from hip-hop, country, pop, metal, reggae, and worship artists through modern software and hardware systems that modify the slightest sounds. Powerful solos and thumping drum beats ring out with crystal clarity after technicians amplify their pitch and volume. Along with polishing musicians' sounds, the studio also eases their stresses by enabling clients to email their tracks for mastering, saving them the hassle of mailing in hard copies or performing over a walkie-talkie.
Each day, Healthlys’s chefs prepare three healthy meals and two snacks using low-fat, kosher ingredients. Instead of being handed to a server and whisked out to a table, the gourmet food is placed in an insulated bag and delivered to customers’ homes no later than 5 a.m. When customers open the bag in the morning, they may see a spinach-and-egg wrap for breakfast, a large garden salad for lunch, and grilled salmon with cauliflower soufflé for dinner.
By using nutritious ingredients and high-tech delivery spaceships, Healthlys hopes to popularize more modest portions of food that lack potentially unhealthy ingredients such as white flour, sugar, MSG, and unnatural additives.
Joker Photobooths' attendants haul their booths to pump up the festivities at weddings, bar and bat mitzvahs, and graduation parties across the east coast. Each booth is outfitted with a camera that snaps high-resolution images (more than 10 megapixels) as subjects strike poses. Logos and captions add a personalized touch to photos, which can be assembled as classic photo strips or grids. The booth can be customized to suit various color schemes, welcoming up to four guests at a time to pose before one of 11 backgrounds. After each event, Joker Photobooths' staff will assemble photo albums that contain a copy of every photo taken at the event.
