Bayville Adventure Park provides thrills and chills for visitors of all ages. Attractions such as a tree-top adventure zone and rock climbing wall encourage healthy competition, while a pirate-themed miniature golf course invites guests to practice their short game and best parrot impression. The park also has an arcade and an ice cream parlor. And while the environs at Bayville are generally swashbuckling, the arrival of fall heralds a change and decks every available hall to transform into a winter wonderland in November with attractions like Captain Bay's Yo Ho Holiday Lights Show (which opens at 4:00 p.m), Santa's Toy Factory Fun House, a holiday shop, a holiday express train, ice skating, and a chance to meet Santa Claus himself and other holiday characters.
In the middle of the floor, surrounded by 150 blinking and dinging arcade games, a 24-foot rock-climbing wall stretches to the ceiling. That's how jam-packed Sportime USA is with attractions. As if all those games weren't enough, there's the XD theater—a 4-D virtual ride that combines 3-D movies with specialized motion seats. Neon-lit laser tag continues the tech trend, and bumper cars and roller coasters provide old-fashioned fun. Batting cages, billiards, and a multilevel playground are only a few of the other attractions ready to entertain families and friends of all ages.
Pump It Up is a blissfully big space designed to help kids meet their needs for friendship, midair dance moves, and gravity defiance. Parents can watch as their bounce-prone descendants slide, scale, and moonwalk around Pump It Up’s inflatable arena. The party zone draws kids with its promise of afternoon hang time and offers a brief history lesson in its resemblance to King Louis XVI’s famous “jumpy castle.” Kids can bond with one another through the subtle physical fitness that comes with recreational jumping, and they’ll be glad to have a spot to discuss pressing kid-only issues, such as the superiority of the color blue to the color green.
Stretched in front of a black-lit backdrop of the New York City skyline, the neon-speckled bowling lanes at Spins Bowl entertain guests with bowling bouts inside the expansive Grand Prix New York facility. Brightly colored bowling balls barrel down the center’s 19 lanes and explode against pin formations, which echo into the lounge's plush seating area. Bowlers compare scores on their lanes’ large LCD projection screens while cheering strikes over beverages and American-style dishes from Fuel, the onsite restaurant and bar. In addition to its 12 public lanes, the bowling alley hosts private events, children’s birthday parties, and hamster-ball crash tests on seven VIP lanes.
Slides, climbing structures, and three inflatable jumpers and obstacle courses outfit Wood Kingdom's 5,000-square-foot indoor playground, while a separate snack area and private birthday room quarantine feasting children from frolicking ones. Elsewhere, knowledgeable staffers in the family-operated business' indoor and outdoor showrooms walk patrons through an extensive stock of home-playground equipment and outdoor furnishings, including trampolines with safety enclosures, basketball hoops, and gazebos. Wood Kingdom personnel subsequently delivers, installs, and maintains each piece of equipment, ensuring that sheds continue to reject move-in offers from portals to the underworld and swing sets are properly assembled.
