As the summer sun dips lazily into the horizon, the air fills with an orchestra of buzzing go-karts and humming ziplines punctuated by floods of laughter. The revelry lasts into the night only to start anew the next morning, a cycle that will continue until Labor Day’s arrival sends Kentucky Shores Family Fun Center’s attractions into hibernation. Guests of all ages romp around the park’s verdant grounds, orchestrating aquatic collisions in the bumper boats or hopping aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a trip back in time without the hassle of having to arm-wrestle your past self. The 36-hole mini golf course adds a touch of the majestic to putting outings thanks to its two waterfalls and stainless steel sculptures forged by renowned artist George Bandarra. Indoors, an arcade beckons guests to video games and rounds of skeeball, and a snack bar staves off hunger pangs with frozen treats and gooey pizzas.

It's easy to get lost in Two Bit Bandit Family Fun Center's massive arcade, and even easier to spend the entire day aiming for the high score on everything from air hockey to Jurassic Park pinball. But do yourself a favor and save a few hours to explore the non-virtual fun zones, which include eight batting cages and four one-on-one basketball courts. The family fun center is a popular place to celebrate a birthday or office MVP award, as two-hour celebrations include a thematically decorated party room.

Whether you're bobbing in the 18,000-square-foot wave pool or screaming down the Dueling Demon speed slide, there's never a dull?or dry?moment at Venture River Water Park. But the park's attractions aren't just for thrill-seekers; smaller family members can head to the kiddie pool, which features mini slides, a mushroom-shaped waterfall, and plenty of lounge chairs for parents. Party packages make a splash with kids of all ages with snacks, drinks, a birthday cake, and a ceremonial procession down the Old Man River.

Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During fun-filled pop-in visits, children can leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, slip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate-controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by a well-trained staff and local police. Parents bounce for free during pop-in, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow a neighbor’s kid or win one by collecting soda tops. From expert installation and anchoring to insurance coverage and rule enforcement, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards. Since jumping is an exciting method for burning calories, a lively lark through Pump It Up’s inflatable fun houses will cause youthful energy to melt off faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player.

The gauntlet of ramps, windmill blades, and dastardly drawbridges at Midget Links Golf has been challenging players for more than half a century. Originally opened in 1947, the 18-hole course is most famously known for the goldfish-filled, 1,500-gallon aquarium that serves as the focal point of the course’s circular layout. Other noteworthy course features include the unofficial 19th hole, which gives players the chance to win free rounds, prizes, and the polite applause of onlooking goldfish. With so much history embedded in its greens, Miget Links Golf even plays host to the annual Indiana State Open, a tour event for the putt-putt pros of the United States Miniature Golf Association.

With classic replica airsoft guns aimed, teams navigate a 25,000-square-foot indoor battlefield. Within the battlefield's three playing areas, gun-toters conceal themselves behind stacks of tires, stationary vehicles, and small wooden buildings. As combatants slink behind crates and boxes in the shadows, opposing players ferret them out using the light affixed to their weapons and a streaming fire of plastic BBs zipping at speeds up to 375 feet per second. Game play in the radioactive room commences under the glow of black lights that turn the graffiti-laden grounds phosphorescent and opponents' teeth bluer than their songs about battles lost. Adjacent to the battleground, airsoft enthusiasts mingle in the lounge space equipped with a retail shop, party area, and arcade for parties and group events.
