KJ's ReBall Arena](http://www.kjreball.com) houses a field of play filled with adrenaline on which players fire soft rubber balls in quick-paced games where strategy counts but quick reactions reign supreme. In the arena, players wield paintball guns without creating colorful messes and or the need for subsequent dips in a bleach jacuzzi. Reballers utilize strategy and catlike reflexes to negotiate the terrain populated by big, yellow and black inflatable obstacles placed over an enclosed space and multicolored patchwork carpet. KJ's hosts open play, during which teams of friends can face off against each other, as well as league play for those wishing to take the competition up a notch.
Scott Sarkozi and his training staff groom their students for basic proficiency or state and national competition. Along with private instruction, the bustling Sarkozi Training Centre hosts private stables for more than 50 horses, who train in an expansive outdoor arena or a well-lit indoor training arena. After a long day of galloping, guest horses enjoy free time in one of Sterling Meadow’s turnout pastures, where they snack on grass and share betting tips for this week’s greyhound races.
The brainchild of veteran wedding DJ Shawn Cox and wedding coordinator Carolyn Stark, The Boardwalk Photo Booth Company sets itself apart from run-of-the-mill portable studios by offering vintage-style booths with classy wood-grain exteriors. A winner of The Knot's 2012 Best of Weddings award, Boardwalk fortifies each booth with a high-resolution Canon digital camera and professional flash system, capturing subjects as they mug on comfy benches built for two or three.
Behind the booth's velvet curtain, partygoers model licensed props from movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean and Harry Potter, along with feather boas, glittering crowns, and spectacles. A high-speed digital printer churns out smudge-resistant memories as a booth specialist lurks nearby to fix technical problems, encourage participation, and serenade the booth for a job well done.
Kangaroo Jac's avenue of inflatable structures bustles with giggling swarms of children 10 and younger. During walk-in play, youngsters milk the all-access admission by repeatedly plummeting down the safe but steep fortress slide, hurdling over obstacles in the Millennium combo, and exploring the 1,000 square feet Adrenaline maze, elaborate enough to house a balloon animal Citizen Kane. Staff members help organize and clean up after parties, hosted in a private room where each child can gorge themselves on pizza, drinks, and birthday wishes. The parent area's WiFi keeps adults up-to-date on national news, whereas the toddler-only Dino Lake inflatable area keeps tots up to date on local gibberish.
The Quilting Bee delights needle workers of all abilities with an assortment of stitch-ameliorating merchandise and a variety of classes. Expert instructors schedule the individualized 2.5-hour table-runner class around students’ busy timetables, allowing seam assemblers to craft a 16”x40” table runner for bare-midriffed buffets in between meetings, family outings, or sustainable needle harvesting. No previous sewing or thimble-modeling experience is necessary to attend the table-runner class thanks to adroit thread tutors who answer any questions and guide pupils through the perils of needle-based fabric taming. Since The Quilting Bee provides a pre-cut fabric kit to all class takers and lends sewing machines to those who don’t have their own, students can leave their spinning jennies and gold-plated bobbins at home.
Guarded by pirate statues perched atop treasure chests, gripping pistols, and wielding hooks instead of hands, the 18-hole course at Pirate's Paradise Miniature Golf challenges players with rolling greens and winding waterways. In addition to a bounty of buccaneers, the mini-golf course is decorated with flowering plants, waterfalls, and tranquil ponds. After rounds of mini golf, players can reenergize with hot dogs, funnel cakes, and milk shakes whipped up at the snack bar. Elsewhere, youngsters can celebrate birthdays with two hours of unlimited golfing followed by two hours on the pirate ship, where they can feast with friends and force piñatas that won't break to walk the plank.
