Members of the Pacific-12 Conference, the University of Washington Huskies athletic department boasts a rich history of triumphs. In 2001, their football team added a Rose Bowl victory to a trophy case that already contained the laurels of four national titles, the most recent of which occurred in 1991. In 2011, the men's basketball team claimed its third Pac-12 tournament title, and in 2005, the women's volleyball team steamrolled competition en route to its first-ever national title. Much of the Husky-related glory unfolds on the floors and fields of UW's lineup of pristine facilities, which includes the historic 72,500-seat Husky Stadium and raucous Alaska Airlines Arena.

From three locations, Family Fun Centers & Bullwinkle's Restaurant foster lifelong memories for kids and their caretakers as they bond over bouts of miniature golf, laser-tag shootouts, and bumper-car derbies. Visitors taller than 58 inches challenge each other to go-kart races, while smaller thrill seekers practice Napoleonic siege techniques at the indoor fun fortress. Outside, human slingshots hurl visitors safely through the air in harnessed flights, and indoor rollercoaster simulators re-create the twists and turns of amusement-park rides or malfunctioning monorails. After perfecting swings at 18 holes of mini golf or 25-pitch batting cages, visitors chow down at the Bullwinkle-themed restaurant, feasting on crowd-pleasing park fare such as pizza, burgers, salads, wraps, and corn dogs. Attractions vary by location. Valid only at the Tukwila and Edmonds locations.

Lynnwood Bowl and Skate has sprung from a history so illustrious that the city of Lynnwood awarded its owners with a certificate officially recognizing its impact on local culture. That history began in 1956, when Lynnwood Lanes first opened. Two years later came Lynnwood Roll-A-Way, which was a separate endeavor until Lynnwood Bowl and Skate's current owners merged the businesses in 2006 with a major revamp. In August of that year, a renovation team resurfaced the lanes and roller rink, updated the computerized bowling system to accommodate the entirely new post-Y2K numeric system, and installed a glass door between the bowling alley and skating rink.

In addition to structural renovations, a fresh staff worked out the kinks that previously plagued the Bowl and Skate; they abolished leagues in lieu of exclusively open bowling hours and further diversified the center's activities by erecting the Asteroid climbing wall, a space-themed expanse of glowing handholds. Once visitors have exhausted their energy stores at the climbing wall, bowling lanes, or skating rink, they can gear up for round two at The Roll Bar, where cocktails flow alongside burgers and pizzas and skate-clad visitors flatten out too-thick crusts by rolling over them.

The warm pro shop at Lynnwood Ice Center provides welcome relief for families chilly from loops around the rink. As a member of the Washington Ice Skating Association, the facility offers classes led by instructors with extensive teaching and professional experience, including former international competitors. The center is also the home of the Seattle Junior Hockey Association and the Seattle Skating Club, and it helps forge the hockey players of the future during Stick & Puck sessions. The rink's staff can host a birthday party in a private room, or design programs for homeschoolers or children who have been educated by a hologram of their future self.

Before Jordyn Palmer founded Edge Performing Arts and Dance, she unleashed her powerful pipes on the stages of Carnegie Hall and Avery Fischer Hall. These experiences, along with holding starring roles in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and Jane Eyre, readied Palmer to lead fledgling singers and actors toward their own performance goals. Along with dance teacher Sanna James, Palmer leads private lessons, group classes, and summer camps that focus on stage presence, self-confidence, and turning every Shakespearean sonnet into a dance number.

Q&A with Tamara Menteer Gonzalez, Owner And Lead Island Fun-time Hostess.

What is Challenge Island?

Challenge Island is based off the TV show, Survivor?but the good news is, nobody gets kicked off the island. Every island has a different set of challenges. We use recycled and green materials that can be found in most home pantries, so children can challenge themselves (and others) again. The program is designed to introduce intellectual challenges and encourage children to interact with others, rather than taking on each challenge alone. Children start by thinking through the experiment and drawing out plans by brainstorming with their tribes. Then they tackle the challenge once and determine if anything needs to be fixed before trying it again. Sometimes challenges have up to three opportunities for improvement.

This is scientific methodology at its best. The entire program is structured in a manner to address the child's thinking powers and improve social skills, team spirit, and public speaking skills. Many intellectually smart children have unique differences in the social spheres due to how their minds work. Our camp focuses on the child in a holistic fashion. Our teachers also undergo background checks, and campers may request to be placed in the same tribe as their friends.

I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience?

Children should dress comfortably. Snacks should be sent along for our four-hour camps; otherwise, we will offer popcorn and some vegetables and fruit. Children will be asked to be good team players and social skills are part of the regular curriculum. Just make sure your child is rested, well fed, and does not have a tummy full of sugar, and things will likely go perfectly. However, if a child becomes unruly, parents will be called in to participate with their child until the improper behavior stops.

Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part?

I did get training by being a "student" in both Las Vegas and Atlanta. The best parts of the experience were gaining a sense of belonging to a team, thinking confidently about engineering concepts, and having a ton of fun. I laughed and used my brain a lot. Who knew building towers from paper and tape would be so challenging? And studies show that laughter improves learning.
