Surge through the misty haze, bumping bass lines, and fast flashing lights at Lazer Kraze, where Deerfield Township's three levels or Erlanger's multi-level arena of advanced flashlight tag await. Make it rain raygun ammo from an upper tier, earn a few power-ups, then storm your opponent’s base to deal them a game-changing strike. With as many as 40 taggers traversing either arena, you'll have no shortage of ducks on the darkened pond. After each game's dramatic conclusion, you and your fellow taggers can scope out the real-time scoreboard for accuracy rankings and more. Both the Deerfield Township and Erlanger locations host additional fun factory attractions (not included in this Groupon) such as arcade games, video-game tournaments, inflatable playgrounds, and laser-baked pizzas sliced generously by laser-wielding laser surgeons.
A black-and-red color scheme isn't the only thing Buckeye Bounce Club borrows from the Ohio State University. OSU cheerleaders and the university's mascot, Brutus, attended the trampoline club's grand opening to test the springiness of surfaces throughout the studio. The cavernous trampoline room features two distinct areas to practice tumbling techniques or just jump around. Kids can literally bounce off the walls that surround a court made up of 20 trampolines, and gymnasts can practice flips while leaping into the club's pit of soft foam cubes. Patrons bound to their heart's content during open-jump sessions and face off in organized games of dodge ball that add a nostalgic touch to elementary school reunions. Instructors help jumpers burn calories and increase coordination during classes, such as the boot-camp-style Fit Jump class for adults and Jump & Tumble classes for kids six and under. Between jumps, guests catch their breath in the lounge, where they can exercise their fingers with arcade games.

Though its name may conjure fantasies about sprinting down crowded streets or bench-pressing buses stalled in traffic, Urban Active Fitness grants its members abundant space in which to spread out and follow their workout proclivities. At dozens of locations across the Midwest and South, members can sculpt their bodies in whichever manner they choose—from personal training with resistance machines and free weights to group classes in cycling, Zumba, and Pilates. A number of group classes draw on the gym’s urban theme for inspiration. Urban Iron, for example, focuses on building muscles that resemble the cast-iron beams of skyscrapers, and Urban Yoga closely imitates the poses necessary to squeeze onto a subway train at rush hour.
Members at Curves, a fitness center designed exclusively for women, rotate around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with female bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and manage arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help to manage participants’ machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use your own body weight, fitness level, and aerodynamic water bottle to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lifting and lowering motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses pushing and pulling motions to develop toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
