With a huge array of go-karts, mini-golf, bumper boats, arcade games, and birthday parties, it seems the only thing you can't do at the Zone Action Park is get bored. In the Strike Zone baseball enthusiasts can practice their swing in the batting cages, the Speed Zone allows drivers to blast around the course in a single or double go-kart, and in the Splash Zone, they practice nautical combat with bumper-to-bumper thrills. After all that excitement, pizza, wings, chili cheese dogs, and Frito pie help drivers refuel, which contrary to some beliefs, is not the same way go-karts refuel.
Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. The 7,500-square-foot indoor children?s recreational center features super-sized inflatables for playing, jumping, bouncing, and sliding. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through the gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course. Occasionally, the staffers switch off the lights, arming the roomful of players with glow sticks and bracelets as they navigate the air-cushioned obstaclescape.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the wall by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards. In addition to parties, Pump It Up plays host to field trips, camps, fundraisers, and other special events.
Funtrackers summons fun-seekers with a mother lode of scintillating attractions for guests of all ages. Drivers in tiny cars vanquish fellow racers with expert passing maneuvers and cloying drive-time radio jams across four different go-kart tracks, which range from a kiddie track built for drivers 3 aged and older to a pro track reserved for motorists with a valid driver’s license or permit. Floating in a 3-foot-deep pool, guests can douse each other with water from a squirt-gun turret built in to bumper boats, engaging comrades in a friendly rivalry to be continued at the 18-hole, tropical-themed miniature-golf course. Inside, buzzing sounds and whirring lights emanate from more than 50 arcade games, including skee-ball and air hockey, many of which reward success with tickets that can be redeemed for an assortment of fun prizes.
Funtabulous fosters year-round wintertime activities with boisterous bouts of skating and coasting across an open field of synthetic ice. The durable, melt-resistant material provides a welcoming surface for practicing graceful spins and triple axles without the dangers of ice-cold insults from wandering yetis. In the interest of safety and comfort, skaters are asked to arrive wearing long pants and tall socks.
The three main acts of baseball—pitching, batting, and catching—all require a firm grip. But that's impossible on The Diamond, a baseball-themed spray deck where cool H2O jets from each ball, bat, and glove. Like the USS Dusty—a replica aircraft carrier equipped with slides and water cannons—The Diamond is one of two play areas that cater to younger kids at Hurricane Alley Waterpark.
Older guests can compete on Storm Chaser, a four-lane racing slide, or plummet down the six-story Cat 5, a winding slide more than 65-feet high. Waves crash across the 12,000-square-foot Storm Surge wave pool, while more gentle waters await those lounging in the park's 750-foot lazy river, the Gulf Stream. For adults, Hurricane Alley even houses a swim-up bar where of-age guests can enjoy a libation while relaxing in the water.
