Cavorters of all ages caper about Joker's Family Fun and Games's massive indoor play zone, which is stocked with games and attractions that inspire climbing and sliding. Kids can scramble into the three-tiered A-Maze-Zing playhouse to navigate tubes, web bridges, and conference rooms, and toddlers can maneuver through the mini maze or hop aboard the train ride for a sightseeing jaunt around the tracks. Future adults can challenge one another in sundry classic arcade games such as skee-ball and air hockey, and more than 50 video games await thumbs desperate to win garlands of exchangeable tickets. Whippersnappers achieve liftoff in lieu of jetpack overalls on a Jolly Jump air bounce then safely glide down a 22-foot inflatable super slide. At the 14,000-square-foot Portland location, youngsters can also blast comrades in a space-age laser-tag zone, scale a towering rock-climbing wall, and master putting skills on an 18-hole mini-golf course. After extreme bouts of frolicking, families can quell tummy rumbles with slices of housemade pizza slathered in Joker's signature sauce or peek at the menu to peruse sandwiches, burgers, and chicken tenders.

5,000 square feet of indoor rock walls outfitted for top-rope belaying and bouldering entertain guests of all experience levels at Maine Rock Gym, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2014. Suitable for ages four and older, visitors can partner up to climb meandering problems across varying angles and overhangs. Indoor, onsite clinics instruct climbers at introductory or advanced levels, and guides lead outdoor excursions to Maine's granite cliffs and New Hampshire's White Mountains.

Opening in December 2014, Evo Rock Gym will be decked in over 16,000 square feet of climbing space on its 42-foot-high walls, with a large top-out bouldering area. A separate climbing area for kids will also be tucked away in the facility, along with rooms to host birthday parties for young revelers. In addition to an aerial silk yoga room and cardio machines, visitor amenities will also include changing rooms, showers, and lockers on-site.

As a child, Jason Litalien watched Cheers with his dad; even then, he knew that in the future he wanted to open a neighborhood sports bar inspired by the hit television show's signature watering hole. Duty came first, though; Jason enlisted in the United States Air Force and served for 13 years, keeping his dream alive all the while. Three years ago, he returned from service and opened The Frosty Pint, a friendly pub decorated with Boston sports memorabilia, including a neon Celtics sign and framed Red Sox and Tom Brady jerseys. Cooks curate a menu of American favorites such as chicken wings drenched in teriyaki or thai honey sauce, jalapeño poppers, and deep-fried baseballs. Bartenders, meanwhile, fill glasses with 20 types of draft beer, pour a handful of wines, and mix spirits into cocktails. The Frosty Pint also has an outdoor seating area with umbrellas to protect them from the elements.

After years traveling the globe and working in the fitness industry, Stephen and Antonia Anderson wanted to design a fitness facility that was as beautiful as it was functional. The duo eventually realized this dream, opening The Body Architect within a lofty building with wooden beams, exposed brick walls, and wall-to-wall windows that proffer spectacular views of Portland and Mount Washington. In front of these windows, rows of professional Precor and Cybex machines bustle amid the clang of strength and TRX suspension training equipment. Meanwhile, up on the roof deck, certified instructors conduct a variety of fitness classes beneath the sun, including boot camps, yoga, and personal-training sessions. Additionally, an onsite massage therapist stands by to help untangle muscles or knotted gym socks before or after members unwind in serene spa-inspired showers.

A mural of a radiant sun painted in oranges, reds, and yellows covers one of the walls at Portland Power Yoga, mimicking the warmth of the heated room where yoga instructors show ranks of students the proper way to extend their arms as they crouch on their mats. The heat helps facilitate deeper stretching and detoxification as students flow through sequences in 90-minute Basics, All Levels, or Intermediate classes. Instructors condense the same experience into a shorter session during Hour of Power classes and help groups hold extended poses in Yin Yoga, awakening students' connective tissues and convincing nearby deer that they’re actually statues. In addition to regular classes, the studio hosts community workshops with guest instructors and often works in tandem with the bodywork experts at Hara Holistic Health.
