Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 16 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.

Beneath a tangle of ivy and vines, a giant python slithers past a giraffe and his rhinoceros chum. As youngsters rush toward the clutter of creatures, what sounds like a scene from the jungle transforms into a day of indoor amusement at Go Bananas. In addition to the miniature python-themed roller coaster and a train ride circling the giraffe and rhino, tykes defy gravity in the bounce castle, collide into other bumper car drivers, and calculate friction coefficients while pummeling down the slide. After scaling the multilevel climbing structure and navigating its tunnels and tubes, kids can return to terra firma to dispense tokens into the arcade's abundant machines, which include classics such as Centipede, skee-ball, and air hockey, and newer games such as Big Bass Wheel and Deal or no Deal.

At the snack bar below a mock thatched roof, staffers reenergize guests with treats such as pizza and Hershey's ice cream before they revisit rides with their parents, who can ride along for free.

Adapted from the popular animated film by DreamWorks, Madagascar Live! brings to life the furry adventures of the familiar cast of on-the-lam zoo animals as they break out of New York's Central Park Zoo and return to their ancestral homeland in the African isle of Madagascar. This frenetic fusion of music and dance celebrates friendship with original songs, imaginative sets, and vivid costumes, leaving audience members clamoring to stage their own inspired midmorning escapes from the carpool lane. With more than 4,000 seats—each with unobstructed views—Rosemont Theatre provides a much more stately venue to witness a dancing-animal show than the neighborhood dogs' backyard production of The Sound of Music. Seats will be located in balcony level A through S or floor level AA-HH. Ticket pick-up is available starting an hour before the performance. Groups should plan to pick up their tickets early for best chance of sitting together.

Couched in the stadium seats of luxury, patrons at Muvico Theaters enjoy the latest blockbusters in crystal-clear Sony 4K digital projection. Moving D-Box seats in certain movie houses take the motion-picture experience to the next level, and huge armrests in the Premier section leave room for midmovie dining and premovie thumb wars. Muvico also shows golden oldies in addition to new releases and live events, such as live comedy, sporting events, and beer and wine tastings
