North Clackamas Aquatic Park's 400,000 gallons of H2O stream down two twisty tube slides and splash swimmers in three swimming pools housed within this waterlogged indoor playground. During Big Surf! recreational hours, divers plunge into 13-foot-deep water as swimmers on rental tubes crest the wave pool's 4-foot surf, whereas competitive swimmers hone skills in the 25-yard, six-lane lap pool. A drop slide sends adventurous aquanauts plunging, as climbers head the other direction on a 29-foot rock wall with three routes for scalers of all skill levels. As adults unwind in the hot tub, pint-size splashers flit about interactive fountains, coast down the Sammie the Seal slide into a kiddie pool, or organize their fellow tots into a filibuster until chaperones acquiesce to snack demands at the Surf's Up Cafe. Swimming lessons, complimentary life jackets, and inflatable submarines are also available to help guests swim safely.
At Gametime, interactive attractions fuse with made-from-scratch eats to create an excitement-packed tandem that raises the bar on family fun. Bowlers unleash spherical fury across 12 different lanes, including 4 lanes harbored by a private party room where leather couches, chairs, and random appearances from a mailman help to recreate the comforts of home. Inside the arcade, competitors ranging from pint-size to full-size test their skills on popular games such as air hockey or skee-ball, and throughout the facility, flat-screen TVs flicker with sporting events so eyes have an easier time diverting from heated stare downs with disobedient balls. Between unabashed sessions of point scoring, a newly remodeled kitchen serves up Pug's Restaurant's freshly crafted fare, highlighted by hand-tossed pizzas and burgers made with hormone-free beef.
Established in 2009, the Best of Oregon Food & Wine Festival supports the Beaver State’s thriving culinary industry every year with a lineup of local restaurateurs and vintners. The festival emphasizes the artisanal side of local cuisine, and every year proceeds benefit local charities that have included the Children’s Cancer Association, Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, and the Oregon Food Bank. Between bites and beverages, guests can catch live sets by local musicians, or bid on an exquisitely invisible mime box at the festival’s silent auction.
