Gatti-town’s all-you-can-eat buffet feeds the fires in gamers’ bellies with an unlimited downpour of more than 40 edible options. Pile tongues with aisles of entrees that include pizzas, pastas, salads, cheese sticks, cinnamon sticks, and desserts such as the dutch-apple-treat pizza. Big-screen TVs in the dining rooms begin stuffing brains with entertainment to prepare them for a smorgasbord of automated amusement.
HeyDay Family Fun provides activities, games, and family fun for all ages. On an indoor ropes course, harnessed climbers traverse balance beams and bridges suspended far above the large arcade. From that vantage point, patrons get a bird's eye view of their rivals' air-hockey strategies or watch slick masses of horsepower slip around corners on Need for Speed and Fast and Furious racing games. In the two-level, 7,000-square-foot laser-tag arena, walls of swirling fog close tightly around warriors as they hide under bridges and dodge behind illuminated pillars. The noise of good-natured combat drifts faintly out over 18 holes of mini golf littered with waterfalls, streams, sand traps, and rugged outdoorsmen trying to live off sand.
DoubleDave's Pizzaworks, an onsite family-friendly restaurant and sports bar, quells protesting tummies between games with a menu of strombolis, wings, sandwiches, and hand-tossed pizzas made with fresh-daily dough. HeyDay Family Fun also offers birthday party and group packages.
Clad in their families' colored tartans, members of more than 30 Scottish clans gather on festival grounds in Tulsa for the annual Scotfest, Oklahoma's largest Celtic music festival.

Scotch tastings will feature Rubright & Hardagain answering questions about different types of scotch, the distilling process, and why some whiskies are resentful about being locked in barrels for years. Meanwhile, vendors refuel visitors with authentic Scottish food before sending them off to dance to traditional folk and Celtic rock acts such as Celtica, Tullamore, Wicked Tinkers, Seven Nations, Murder the Stout, and Celtic-influenced Texas rock band Cleghorn. A designated children's area is available for youngsters to play in.

Andy Alligator's Water Park—next to its dry-land counterpart, Andy Alligator's Fun Park—laughs in the face of heat waves with its map of maritime attractions designed for cooling down on a hot day. The Riptide Racer's towering structure sends splish-splashers rocketing down colorful slides on their stomachs, while thrill-seekers cajole their buddies into two-person tubes before shooting through the spirals of the Banzai Pipeline. Island-themed walkways and slides festoon the play space at Cowabunga Cove, and the Paradise River lazily flows in a loop for relaxing tube rides and slow-motion reenactments of Speed 2: Cruise Control. Snorkels Café and Grill serves a menu of burgers, pizza, and sandwiches to replenish the energy spent by drenched diners.
Elevation Trampoline Parks' facility maximizes its bounces per square inch with 14,000-square feet of horizontal and angled trampoline surfaces, a foam pit to cushion the trickiest of tricks, and other elastic surfaces. Two trampoline sport courts set the stage for high-flying games, enabling players to jump out of the way of dodgeballs or perfect their dunks during trampoline basketball. A sectioned-off kids' court exclusively for young'uns 2–6 years old, keeps youngsters safe from being pounced on by ostentatious kangaroos.
Splash Zone submerges guests in a safe, lifeguard-supervised aquatic romping ground, encouraging swift gliding down a fleet of water slides and enjoyment of water-infused land activities such as volleyball. The Drop Zone features two side-by-side slides, where waternauts can perch atop a sled or hogtied friend and dart down into a refreshing pool. Little thrill seekers can splash about in Kiddie Cove, which brims with shallow-water attractions, and adults have the escapist option of grabbing a comfortable plastic tube and riding the water around a slow-paced river, relatively free of splashing water and children repeatedly shouting "Watch this!"
