Safari Sam's virtual jungle of kid-friendly entertainment is densely packed, thoughtfully designed, and well maintained. The enormous jungle gym is built big and strong so parents can play along with their kids. The Black Diamond Challenge Course challenges older kids with more physically demanding obstacles. The indoor miniature golf course is well designed, with glow-in-the-dark paint on jungle-like details on the kid-friendly obstacles, including palm trees and Aztec-like temples. Gonzo's game room is an old-fashioned redemption arcade with more than 75 games in which kids can win prizes, from key chains and stuffed animals to glow-in-the-dark senses of superiority.
A competitive shooter since he was a teenager, Mike Wirth began teaching responsible firearms operations during college. Between bouts of studying for his degree in mechanical engineering, he showed friends and classmates the firearms basics, such as marksmanship fundamentals, proper cleaning and storage, and how to smelt each bullet by hand.
Now teamed with business partner Aaron Goodfellow, Wirth continues training clients in responsible armed defense. On the outdoor ranges shared with Parma Rod and Gun Club, he and Goodfellow lead classes focused on handgun operations, teaching guests skills from swapping magazines to courteous behaviors when on the range.
Born To Ride Cycle and Fitness is a spinning-only fitness center, meaning this is the place for anyone serious about cycle fitness. Inside this spacious, mirror-lined studio, state-of-the-art Schwinn AC Performance Plus stationary bikes are lined up and ready to be pedaled furiously during the Mid-Morning Motivator class, during which sprints, climbing, and intervals are propelled by heart-pounding music. Additionally, the Rider’s Bootcamp sessions, much like trying to carry a greasy anvil up a set of stairs, promise to “leave your legs shakin’.” Instructors here are passionate about the health benefits of spinning, and strive to make both their personal training sessions and their group classes fun, motivating, and completely addictive.
Play Boutique makes a thoroughly wholesome experience out of the classic childhood combination of snacks and playtime. Kids burn off energy in structured but creative educational play sessions, stopping for snacks made from ingredients such as Tillamook cheddar cheese, low-fat greek yogurt, and fresh fruits and veggies. Themed events often arrange for simultaneous parents' date-night entertainment and kids' activities.
