Jungle Jumpers’ indoor play center expends kids' and parents' pent-up energy with five fun inflatable structures. Careen your little guppies down massive slides and ride alongside an inflatable fish, or test daredevilry by bounding through the open mouth of a squishy, lock-jawed alligator. Kids can frolic through a colorful blown-up walkway with a ladder and slide or practice minutemen tactics by traversing custom obstacle courses in fewer than 60 seconds.
With more than 50 years of experience in the nursery industry, Dana Pike and her staff of experienced plant professionals, horticulturalists, and landscape designers guide home gardeners through 5 acres of plants, supplies, and accessories. Prevent newspaper deliverers from shattering another lawn sculpture of Andre the Giant with a shrub ($5.99+) from lines such as the Southern Living collection. Patrons can inject style and oxygen into interior spaces with one of many houseplants ($3.99+) or reward branchless swings with a tree ($16.99+). Knowledgeable gardeners can advise planters as to which annuals ($1.59+) will grow best in difficult yard environments with little shade or mounting evidence of an underground rabbit-run kitchen, and for an additional fee will plant any greenery purchased. The Family Tree Garden Center’s stock changes weekly. After perusing plants, soil, and gardening tools, patrons can visit the upscale gift shop for home-décor items ($4+). Budding ornithologists can delight in the wild-bird section with a variety of feeders, seed, and bird bungalows, sold with or without squirrel security systems.

Footwear sizes range from 5 to 10 and include half sizes, as well as 11 in certain styles, ensuring each pair is doubly comfortable for those who walk exclusively while doing handstands.
Together, the Snellville indoor field and the Conyers outdoor field make up the paintballer’s paradise known as Wildfire Paintball Games. Within Snellville’s warehouse-like space, gunrunners dive behind walls of corrugated pipes. Overhead netting prevents errant paintballs from splattering the ceiling, and large bunkers akin to oversized beanbags offer temporary cover to players who need to tie their shoes or quickly finish a book report. At Conyers, ramshackle huts and fort-like edifices give snipers a spot to target their opponents. A forested area provides camouflage, and the speedball arena’s regulation-style obstacles stand tall on the grass field as players duck and run.
The sound of fans cheering the Atlanta Braves or the neon lights beaming from the nearby laser-tag course signals to guests entering Stars and Strikes' 55,000-square-foot facility that they are far from their neighborhood's bowling alley. At state-of-the-art bowling lanes, guests enjoy food and bar service while watching sporting events on large TVs. An adjacent room crisscrossed with a thicket of neon-green lasers joins a bumper-car arena where players raucously prepare for their workday commute. Complimenting the myriad activities and arcade with more than 100 games is a restaurant and bar boasting gourmet pub fare such as blackened-tilapia salads, popcorn-shrimp wraps, and green-bean fritters.
