Within Skatebarn's 45,000 square feet of skating space, half pipes and launches patiently perch and wait for the skateboards, rollerblades, bikes, and skates that glide over their surfaces. During two-hour sessions, skaters can freewheel throughout the area, jumping and coasting over rails, verts, ramps, and drops as smoothly as a family of olive-oiled seals. Skatebarn hosts a variety of events and skateboard, BMX, scooter, and rollerblade contests. All skaters must sign a waiver before officially entering into skate territory.

Some of us will never know what it's like to have superpowers, but a day spent at GoFly Water Aviation offers a glimpse into the magic of human flight. By harnessing water-jet propulsion, GoFly's equipment gives aquatic pilots the power to soar up to 30 feet above the surface with enough control to perform flips and twists or dive into the water with the same speed and grace as a caffeinated dolphin.

GoFly's futuristic, airborne vessels take two forms: the flyboard and the Jetovator. Both vehicles derive their skygrazing power from a jet stream of high-pressure water attached via a long hose. For the flyboards, the streams shoot out from a pair of boots strapped to the feet, forcing pilots to maintain balance—and execute tricks—by flexing their legs. A trip on the Jetovator, by contrast, is like riding a flying motorcycle: after straddling the bicycle-like contraption, pilots steer with a handlebar as a rear jet provides enough thrust to sail through the air. In either case, GoFly offers photo and video packages, letting adventurers relive their experience in HD footage instead of hiring an old Greek poet to narrate the tale every time.

Glider-Rides.com’s FAA-certified pilots propel Grob Motorglider planes skyward, treating passengers to astounding aerial views of Washington's verdant landscape. One passenger weighing up to 200 pounds rides along in a streamlined, self-launching motorglider, which can comfortably fit people up to 6'2" tall. When the plane reaches a suitable altitude, the pilot shuts off the engine, leaving the aircraft completely silent except for the occasional scream of clouds. Passengers may specify sights and landmarks to view along the way, snapping panoramic photos of regal Mount Rainier, the inspiring Seattle skyline, and the Puget Sound. Each side of the plane sports a window, facilitating clear, crisp photography and gesticulations for truck drivers to honk their horns.
