Named by USA Today as one of the top 10 roller-skating destinations in the country, United Skates of America in Tampa provides indoor family fun with a spacious rink and various skating games. Jam skating combines dancing and gymnastic moves set to Top 40 hits, and skating limbo blends the formerly disparate joys of rollerblading and chiropractic therapy. When fatigued by the rigors of the rink, children can refuel on pizza and soda at the snack bar. Inside the arcade, they enjoy games of air hockey and Ms. Pac Man, which teaches kids the importance of a nutritious diet high in fruit and ghosts.

New Jersey Performing Arts Center stands firm as a bastion of live entertainment, opening the doors to its two distinct venues for a wide array of productions. Inside Prudential Hall, 2,700 seats fill the multitiered auditorium where ballets, symphony orchestras, and Broadway shows flourish beneath radiant lights and a domed ceiling. Victoria Theater, meanwhile, beckons visitors to its more intimate 500-seat confines for jazz concerts, contemporary dance performances, and monster-truck rallies.

As baseball season draws to an end, and the Newark Bears empty their lockers, specters hiding in the mist materialize to transform Riverfront ballpark into the Stadium of Screams. Daring explorers of the unexplained can traverse through the seasonally haunted attractions, which include haunted locker rooms, where undead actors lie in wait, ready to terrify unsuspecting visitors, and bubbling cauldrons brewing viscous vats of Gatorade. Just beyond the cursed confines, shrieks of terror become shrieks of glee at the Stadium of Screams Fun Zone. Visitors can participate in a free nightly treasure hunt, or spend up to $1 on prize-riddled amusement park games. Costumed actors greet guests for photos and stage fear tastings from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and again from 11 p.m. to midnight. Although not included in the price of this Groupon, a hayride ($5) is available to tote guests around the baseball field, granting sublime views of the night sky and an eerily moonlit home plate.

Harlem Globetrotters Playing Three-on-Five

Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating [roster](http://gr.pn/PHdb6w) of Globetrotter favorites?including three female players?takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard [TNT](http://gr.pn/rOe0P4) sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker [Quake](http://gr.pn/QTIGVh), whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 [Too Tall](http://gr.pn/PHdmPh) and 7-foot-4 [Stretch](http://gr.pn/1dYrbUt), the team?s tallest member. During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters? extensive travels haven?t gone unnoticed: they?re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.

A palatial playscape, Inferno Limits Paintball & Laser Tag spreads its activities across 30,000 square feet. And 7,000 square feet are dedicated to arcade games alone, from classic skee-ball to multiperson racing games. The laser-tag arena is so large that up to 48 players can battle one another in scenarios that change every three months. A versatile space, the paintball field can be adapted for smaller, faster games or more complex ones, and skirmishes can unfold both inside and outside. But the arena's most daring challenge is to avoid Justin Bieber, should he ever stop by again. To refuel gamers, whether they're tuckered out from shooting basketballs, lasers, or paintballs, the caf? doles out pizza, hot dogs, and chicken fingers.

Branch Brook Park Roller Skating Center is a kids' paradise. Usually, at least. On most days families and birthday-partiers roll around its large wooden rink and master video games or collect tickets from redemption games in the arcade. But the 18+ crowd also gets the occasional DJ night of its own to break out the combustion-powered grownup skates. In fact, the Center loves to throw themed events that appeal to all ages, ranging from gospel jams to '80s tributes to carnival days. The cafe serves pizza and hot dogs, and for newcomers there are also skating lessons.
