Founded in New York City during the 1960s, the Improv Comedy Clubs has since grown to host a multitude of celebrity comedians, including Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, and Jim Carrey. Standup chucklemeister Dean Napolitano—known for his appearances on the Internet sitcom Hollywood Handyman and TV series What About Brian?—rouses crowds with flaming-pie fights and gut-busting insights on everyday situations. An appetizer platter stocked with potato skins, mozzarella sticks, and other finger foods sates the appetites of two audience members in between bouts of guffawing and scouring the comedy club for dissolvable sutures.
Attentive staff ensure the safety and cleanliness of Jump!Zone's inflatable indoor play center, which facilitates frolicking with its moonwalks, bouncers, and giant slides for children aged 2–12. With a pass good for six open play sessions, mini humans can slip on a pair of socks and experience all eight of the facility's bouncy attractions. An 18-foot fire truck makes a great slide and provides an excellent career idea for kids who still haven't decided what they want to be, while the playplace's giant alligator and the Jurassic Adventure help grade-schoolers explore the softer side of everyday predators., Meanwhile, growing minds can strengthen problem-solving abilities and lab-rat impressions by navigating the bouncer maze. A toddler area occupies tinier hands with toys and activities, and tuckered-out tykes can set up shop at the air-hockey table, leaving their adult counterparts free to recite the periodic table of elements backward in peace.

Mud oozes through fingers, toes, and other places mud should never ooze through during Mudathlon, a challenge that puts 3 miles and more than 40 obstacles between racers and the finish line. With multiple stops across the country, Mudathlon transforms its destinations into messy, muck-riddled swamplands, where participants ascend walls, zip down slides, and always end up in the same place—back in the mud. Course marshals stationed along each route keep feet moving in the right direction, and at the finish line, the top three male and female competitors receive Top Mudder awards for finishing fastest while ingesting the government’s daily recommended serving of mud. After the race, individuals and teams gather to celebrate at a country-themed party, which continues the festivities with live music, costume contests, and an abundance of food and beer.
