Three Rivers Fencing Center’s head coach Iana Dakova, a national champion fencer, and her foil-wielding staff enable deft swordplay during Wednesday-evening fencing lessons. Coaches outfit fencers in modern safety gear before covering basic footwork and blade work, such as parries, ripostes, and using sabers to skewer fresh vegetables. En garde students reap the additional benefit of included instruction in the noble history, safety rules, and health benefits of fencing. In the event of classes reaching capacity, alternates should check back often for additional classes and advice on how to appear more swashbuckling.

More than 50 years ago, Mr. John E. Connelly set his sights on cleaning up Pittsburgh's polluted three rivers and returning them to their former glory as the Steel City's heart and soul. As then-treasurer of the Allegheny County Sanitary Authority, John was in a prime position to complete his ambition. With the belief that he could get the public engaged and committed to a cleanup, he decided to give the local people access to the rivers via boat tours, knowing the city's characteristic architecture as viewed from the rivers would engender a genuine appreciation for the region's waterways and environment.

After getting his nephew, Captain Jack Goessling, on board, John purchased a 100-passenger fishing boat they would christen the Gateway Clipper, which would later launch from Monongahela Wharf for the first of its many pleasure cruises. Today, with Gateway Clipper Fleet, his dream of engaging locals and visitors in the city's history and waterways thrives with a fleet that has grown to five boats capable of accommodating 2,500 guests. Through the years, the fleet has ferried more than 25 million passengers, treating them to dinner cruises, sightseeing tours, and entertainment jaunts along the clean, blue waters of Pittsburgh's three rivers.

Adrenaline flows freely inside Laser Storm Pittsburgh's laser-tag battleground as teams of players wage infrared war over objectives and bases. In addition to hosting laser battles, Laser Storm offers an arcade filled with skee-ball, three big-screen arcade games, and other ticket-spewing machines. Any tickets won in the arcade can be used to purchase prizes from a well-stocked booth or attached to a fishing line to lure laser-tag enemies out of their hiding spots.

At Fun Fest Entertainment Center, friends and families come together for everything from bowling and birthday parties to games of pool or karaoke crooning over a few drinks. Five days a week, a cosmic bowling experience enhanced by neon lights, thumping music, and fog machines transports guests into a parallel universe where people must knock down pins before they sprout legs and start to dance. Adjacent to the bowling lanes, the Center?s arcade lures thrill seekers with novel amusements including air hockey, a giant Connect Four game, and a karaoke machine that can record performances on DVD. Incandescent murals of planetary systems and supernovas surround guests as they take aim at intergalactic enemies in the darkened corridors of the Cyber Quest Laser Tag arena. In between gaming, players can refuel on draft and bottled beer and food such as pizza, burgers, and chicken wings.

Wildwood Highlands serves an all-ages buffet of adrenaline-filled rides and fun-soaked activities that visitors can access with fistfuls of tickets. For five-minute intervals, go-karts whip through a winding, 1,000-foot course that challenges mini-motorists' reflexes, hand-eye coordination, and familial bonds with each cutoff to the inner rail. Visitors can captain bumper boats through the 5,000-square-foot Wildwood waters, thumping vessels as they pass fountains and circumvent the island. Woody's Den enchants small children with calliope music and magical animals who steer tots toward the spinning slime-bucket ride and old-fashioned train. Two 18-hole miniature-golf courses school putters in the principles of geometry and psyching out competitors with inopportune coughs and cackles.

Wildwood's arcade entices button smashers with more than 70 games that they can play to win tickets, which can be redeemed for prizes such as stuffed animals and action figures. While bouncing from attraction to attraction, thrill seekers can recharge their energy with pizzas, wraps, pretzels, and cotton candy at the snack bar.
