BounceU welcomes kids to descend upon an inflatable, climate-controlled playground where they can bounce and ricochet in safety. Along with birthday parties and group outings, BounceU hosts open-bounce sessions that let sock wearers of all ages imagine they're synchronized leapers in a futuristic moon performance as they carom around the inflatable stadium, expending energy with every leap. Adults are welcome to act like 8-year-olds and join the vivacious youngsters in the playground.

The inflatable arena also opens its buoyant doors to day camps, where boys and girls ages 5–10 spend half their time with brain-bolstering projects such as painting or reprogramming the remote to skip all news channels. After stretching the limits of their imaginations, kids then spend the other half of the day stretching the limits of their limbs on the inflatable playground.

Situated at the foot of the Ellenville Mountain site, Mountain Wings has readied students for safe, engine-free flying since 1981. A staff of USHPA-certified instructors shares much of its knowledge on the facility's two training hills—a grassy, gently sloped concave for beginners, and a 180-foot hill used by intermediate gliders and a handful of pretty insane paper-airplane competitors. Sprinting, stumbling, and hovering across those hills, groups practice with Condors—slow-flying, easy-to-handle training gliders that work in zero-wind zones. Upon ascending to greater heights and skill levels, students can also snag their own equipment at Mountain Wings' full-service aero-sports shop.

Janet Jackson has delighted fans for nearly 30 years with a constantly evolving style of pop and R & B. The Number Ones, Up Close and Personal tour marinates eardrums in songs drawn exclusively from Jackson's catalog of 35 number-one hits, an illustrious group of tunes that includes "That's The Way Love Goes," "Black Cat," and "All for You." Pared-down sets and carefully crafted dance moves allow Jackson to connect directly to her dedicated fans, eschewing pyrotechnics for an experience as emotionally resonant as a baby's first push-up.

Visitors to Westfall Winery descend into the building's secret barrel room to taste fruit-packed potables from Westfall's extensive wine list, all crafted with Old World wine-making techniques amid the picturesque greenery of Sussex County. Inside French oak barrels, fermented grapes age into velvety cabernet sauvignon, local blueberries age into slightly tart blueberry wine, and young castaways age into colorful, barrel-dwelling philosophers. Sated oenophiles can step outside to Westfall Winery’s picnic area to relish a grilled hot dog and homemade chili, and tour the winery’s sparkling pond and white picket fences. At the end of the event, guests can take home a bottle or a case ($12.50+), then use the empty bottles to build a glass-bottomed lifeboat.

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.

With Orange County Airport (KMGJ) serving as their launchpad, the FAA-licensed instructors at Take Flight Aviation host introductory flights, scenic airplane rides, and private pilot certification programs. As future pilots earn their wings, they enjoy use of a pair of runways measuring approximately 3,660 and 5,000 feet in length and KMGJ's status as a non-towered airport, which means no waiting for Air Traffic Controllers to finish their sandwiches before giving the go ahead. When inclement weather keep aircraft grounded, students can train with the FAA-certified Redbird FMX simulator, which recreates a wide variety of flying conditions and portrays them on 200-degree wrap-around visuals inside a fully enclosed cockpit.
