Philadelphia Rock Gyms challenges climbers of all skill levels with 2,000 square feet of climbing terrain, 1,500 square feet of bouldering plains, and more than 30 top ropes. Initiates to the vertical sport can get the hang of climbing basics during the gym’s variety of lessons, which impart skills such as proper technique, safety, and the ability to tell which rocks open a supervillain's secret lair. The gym also features a variety of team-building opportunities and private room rentals, as well as a pro shop that outfits patrons with the proper climbing equipment available for rent or purchase.
Nationwide Bowling orchestrates a cacophonous symphony of clanking pins and cheering bowlers at 11 modern bowling centers located throughout New Jersey. Center size varies from the Hudson-Bayonne location where 60 lanes with automatic scoring, a grill, sports bar, and arcade games accommodate armadas of bowlers to Garden Palace, which houses 16 lanes, a bar, and a snack shop. At all locations, staffers host birthday parties and corporate events and organize leagues for competitive bowlers or people who just like to chuck heavy objects as hard as they can.
At Big Wheel Roller Skating Center, skaters have exercised, peacefully slow-skated, and spun around with friends and family members in a wide, air-conditioned rink for more than 30 years. Although pant styles have rotated from bell-bottomed to skinny, quad skates have remained the same—four wheels arranged in a rectangle, with a rubber brake and a signature ankle-hugging turtleneck. Big Wheel's rink hours accommodate weekend date nights, family fun time on Friday evenings, and early-morning sessions for pre-work nostalgia. Poconos Discothèque on Wheels infuses skate sessions with a high-energy soundtrack that fuels sprint-skating, twirling, or high-stakes hokey-pokey competitions. Although not included in this Groupon, skaters can also forage at the snack bar or take a break in the arcade.
The skilled instructors of Sundari Yoga stretch and flex aspiring yogis to more enlightened states of mind and body. A legion of ligament-loosening classes awaits students of all abilities and rubber compositions, including beginner yoga, which eases new students into the poses, intricate three-part harmonies, and breath work of the yogic arts, as well as the more advanced Ashtanga class, a physically demanding fusion of postures and strenuous flows to boost endurance and increase balance. Those looking to shed stress and fluff stiff think pillows can join Zen flow, a sinewy session focusing on dynamic stretch work and meditative Zen philosophy and techniques. Though some of Sudari Yoga's classes are for all levels, other sessions require a certain amount of proficiency; students can assess their skill level by consulting with Sudari's instructors.
