Growing up in North Las Vegas, Tracy Eliason discovered that time spent bouncing on a trampoline can take a person places beyond the yard. Tracy's bouncing talents took him to the Junior Olympics, where he competed in the Trampoline and Tumbling event as a teen. The accomplished athlete knows well how trampoline bouncing can be irresistible to kids. He opened his multifaceted jumper's paradise, FLIPnOUT Fun Centers, in 2010 to serve as an outlet for youngsters and adults alike to have an enjoyable time while contributing to their fitness. The indoor gymnasium is comprised of large trampoline arenas, inflatable bouncy houses, and a video game arcade. A staff of energetic young trampoline tutors advises tykes on the art of safe jumping, supervises trampoline-enhanced games of dodgeball, and helps show gravity it's not the boss of anyone. Fundraisers and birthday parties are often held at the bounce headquarters, and the team at FLIPnOUT Fun Centers also offers Monday Night Air-obics classes.
As a mother, Missi Winter faced the typical dilemma of balancing her career with the lives of her two children. As a solution, she started Celebrate Kids as a small business dedicated to the happiness of little ones, and today—more than 20 years later—a staff of more than 20 entertainers host both intimate and large-scale events with a variety of characters and activities, including clowns, face painters, and balloon artists. For parents willing to handle their own diversions, the company also rents out bounce houses and carnival games complete with prizes.
Sun Buggy Fun Rentals’ dune buggies shred the sand all around the Las Vegas area. Designed and built in-house, these buggies are ideal for exploring off-road locales—including Vegas’s dunes and Valley of Fire State Park—without getting stuck in the sand or pulled over by the sand police. Customers can choose whether they want to ride with a guide, or maneuver a dune buggy themselves. Sun Buggy also organizes signature chases, during which visitors pursue one of Sun Buggy’s expert “dunies” through more than 15,000 acres of dunes, gravel, hills, valleys, and trails. Other rentals include ATVs and exotic cars, ranging from Mini Coopers to Ferraris.
Before heading to The Las Vegas Motor Speedway across the street, many people, including famous race car drivers, stop by for comfort food classics at Mo's Race Day Cafe. The brunch and lunch spot specializes in American fare served with a slight Asian influence. Chefs cook up dishes ranging from chicken cordon bleu to chicken curry and Asian chicken salad with a lime cilantro vinaigrette, tempting diners to do the opposite of the race car drivers who visit: go slowly, savor the moment, and use their blinker when changing tables. Another tempting treat is one of Mo's Race Day Cafe's most popular items—Thai tea, which comes topped with a pillowy dollop of whipped cream.

European Formula EK20 karts whiz by on Pole Position Raceway’s quarter-mile track, cruising at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. Spectators crank their heads to keep up. There’s no wind to battle against, no sun blinding the drivers’ eyes, and no birds rigging the race by dropping smoke bombs because all of Pole Position Raceway’s competitions happen inside. This is thanks to a fleet of electric-powered karts, which accelerate more quickly and hug curves more smoothly than gas-powered karts without dumping out clouds of exhaust.
To sate speed cravings, drivers simply arrive and drive—show up and nab one of 13 spots in the next race. Then with a DOT-approved racing helmet, they push the pedal to the floor for roughly 10 minutes, drafting their opponents to fly past them near the finish line. At the end of each race, drivers receive a SpeedSheet that displays their race results, fastest lap time, and the likelihood of getting their own action-movie franchise. For those seeking to dive deep into the world of racing, Pole Position Raceway offers driving clinics and youth racing camps, where younger racers pilot EK10 karts that peak at 20 mph.
