Walking into Rolling Thunder Skating Center feels a lot like walking into an indoor carnival: there are rides inside, an arcade with video games and skeeball, and there's even a mural of a rollercoaster on the walls. Still, the center's core identity pulses on the groove of pure roller fun, boasting an expansive rink and its own pizzeria. Around the whole scene, skaters can glide and groove to Top-40 tunes. Parents can join kids on the rink, or watch from the booths in the seating area to ensure that their kids are safe and aren't mouthing any lyrics to Will Smith's Parent's Just Don't Understand.

Philadelphia is no longer safe. That?s because Fright Factory, a house of charnel horrors featured as one of America?s scariest Halloween attractions on the Travel Channel, is reopening the portal to its haunted attractions from September 19 to November 1. The sinister site traps unsuspecting guests within its walls, terrifying them through several haunted settings and a physical manifestation of fear itself.

In 1977, before becoming one of Philadelphia?s few remaining arcades, University Family Fun Center was a laundromat with a few pinball machines in the corner. Games soon drew more customers than laundry, so the family-owned joint quickly morphed into a full-fledged arcade. These days, it houses many classic games, including skee-ball, air hockey, and ?(of course) pinball. Contemporary favorites also abound, including Guitar Hero and a Batman game where caped crusaders pilot their choice of 10 Batmobiles through 36 missions. A majority of the arcade?s games take the redemption model, meaning they yield tickets that can be traded for prizes such as stuffed animals and maps that lead to the secret printing presses converted by Benjamin Franklin into pinball machines. Named a top late-night bar alternative by CBS Philadelphia, the arcade welcomes gamers until at least midnight; Thursday??Saturday, boss levels can be defeated until 2 a.m.
