Great-white sharks, silverback gorillas, and bengal tigers guard the nine holes of That Fun Place's phosphorescent mini-golf course. That’s where families tap neon golf balls through aquatic and jungle landscapes before kids holster putters to climb through the padded three-story playground. After slipping through tunnels and peering through portholes, groups reconvene at the bumper cars to slam into each other under more black lights. Meanwhile, in the laser-tag arena, kids and adults slink through rainforests and space ships to fire the same photons that render alien skin smooth and hairless.

Outside, carnival games and roller coasters envelop visitors in natural light, and children mine for gems and arrowheads at the wooden sluicing contraption. With a full-service pizza parlor on site and an arcade filled with more than 40 games, That Fun Place can also host birthday parties for up to 22 guests.

1930 was a watershed year in the effort to preserve Indiana's state history. For starters, it was the year Julia Meek Gaar donated her personal effects to the Wayne County, Indiana Historical Society. That would have been enough to celebrate on its own, but then the Whitewater Monthly Meeting of Friends donated their historical Friends Meeting House as well. In the decades following those two gifts, local residents have filled out the Wayne County Historical Museum's exhibition halls with their own contributions, both small and large. When viewed together, these gifts paint a vivid picture of Wayne County from the pioneer era through contemporary times.

The museum itself consists of eight buildings, the most impressive of which is a log schoolhouse built in the early 19th century. These buildings house hundreds of artifacts from the museum's permanent collection, including everything from a 3,000-year-old mummy to a restored 1922 Pilot Speedster. More vintage rides grace the museum lawn during cruise-ins?just one example of the many events held here throughout the year. Others include a heritage festival and a haunted-house night, during which the aforementioned mummy comes to life and stalks visitors.

A chorus of giggles provides the soundtrack for the scene at Cicero Fun Factory, where sock-clad tykes dart and dash through an open floor populated by bounce houses. In between drops down the steep chutes of inflatable slides, tykes can army-crawl through tunnels or get big air inside a bounce castle. The play space also offers other sources of fun in the form of air hockey, pool, arcade games, and indoor ziplines, and it goes mobile with bounce-house rentals for birthday parties and community events.

The game of bowling hasn't changed much since Blue River Bowl opened in 1959, but the building's 16-lane alley certainly has. Rather than manually computing scores, for instance, players can sit back while an automatic system tallies each roll and flashes entertaining animations across its screens. The latest sports flicker to highlight-filled life on 16 televisions and one giant projector screen, while the lanes themselves glows during periodic neon-tinted rounds of cosmic bowling. The smoke-free alley hosts open bowling sessions every day, as well as several leagues for youths, adults, and colonies of ants that want to see if they can collectively lift the ball.

No matter their skill or competition level, bowlers can grab new gear at Blue River's pro shop, which houses shiny new balls and bags ready to report for pinbusting duty. They can also unwind at one of three on-site eateries, where cooks satiate post-game cravings for pizza, subs, and frosty drinks.
