Hot on the heels of its own renovation, Fun Force houses a whole menagerie of family-friendly, indoor activities. Folks can get active and practice some friendly competition inside the laser tag arena, which includes an indoor "forest"—or fauxrest—and a complex labyrinth. Guests who wouldd rather shoot the moon can pop on over to the roller skating rink, where families can rent skates and take to the smooth surface to show off their moves. Birthday party packages are also available, as well as bounce-zone full of inflatable playscapes for younger kids.

What's better than an Olympic-size swimming pool on a summer day? One that doesn't send chills up your leg when you dip your foot in it. At Washington Township Swim & Recreation Club, swimmers don't have to worry about frigid waters because the pool is heated. On top of that, the club features a kids' pool, locker rooms with showers, and a clubhouse that can be rented for events such as shark rodeos.

The Garden State Rollergirls, New Jersey's all-female, flat-track roller-derby league, is comprised of local teams of strong, sexy skaters. The object of a game is for a player to skate around the track while offensively and defensively hitting and passing girls on the opposing team. This intoxicatingly entertaining sport plays by mottos such as "bruises are badges of glory" and "skate like the badass, tough-as-nails rollergirls we are," which is why each player has a pseudonym to reflect her style of play such as "Lady Vengeance," "I Don't Care Bear," and "First Derby, Might Have Just Wet My Pants."
