Located inside of the Atlantis Casino Resort Spa, Atlantis Family Fun Center is stocked to the gills with games and entertainment suitable for players of all ages.

The center also features classic arcade games such as Galaga and Ms. Pacman, which imbue thumb-twiddling fun with a vintage retro aesthetic. And the Chicago Dogs! Eatery, which serves its namesake dogs in addition to pizza and ice cream fuels revelry.
LaZerCity gives laser lovers an exciting venue to practice blaster tag tricks during its Unlimited LaZertag (valued at $20 per session), a three-hour excursion through a neon-lit darkness filled with fog. LaZerCity provides the lightest available laser-tag equipment, allowing both adults and future adults to play with ease while dodging each other’s faux bullets in faux slow motion. Beyond the city of lasers’ brilliant gates, a network of dark passageways houses distant planets, neutral-for-now transformers, and skirmishing space cruisers illustrated in bright greens, oranges, and pinks. As players sneak through the corridors flinging sparks of light from their weapons, a bluish, shimmering floor and highlighted pillars mark the path to lasery illumination.
Roller King?s family-owned facility has given the community a shiny wooden surface to roll around on since 1977. The rink?which has undergone several upgrades and withstood three Visigoth raids since its construction?hosts training sessions that teach youngsters how to skate on Saturday morning and Tuesday afternoon and also serves as home turf for the Roseville speed skating team and the Roseville artistic skate club. In addition to the rink, the building also houses a snack bar that slings pizza, hot dogs, and soda, and an arcade to entertain guests who accidentally packed a pair of ice skates.
Pump It Up of Reno/Sparks is a private, indoor recreation facility that houses all things bounceable and specializes in both private parties and public open-play sessions. Parents can promote social development and physical fitness as wee ones jump around like pint-sized pinballs in any of the many bounce houses, obstacle courses, and inflatable slides.
Inside Bouncerz Indoor Party Center, kids can plunge down cushy slides, vault off of springy bounce-house floors, or reign over pumped-up castle turrets that are spread over a 6,000-square-foot, climate-controlled facility. Bouncerz also keeps tykes occupied with an arcade and dodgeball games, and parents can kick back with free WiFi. Each day, staffers clean and inspect the facility to ensure safe, sanitary conditions and to rescue abandoned action figures. It's also possible to set up parties at Bouncerz, or you can turn your own front yard into a mini carnival by renting inflatables from the facility.
The designers of Zip Yosemite, Experience Based Learning, focuses on adventure and safety in building their courses, but they also take care to look after the environment. The company uses Professional Ropes Course Association–accredited builders, who anchor single cables to trees using the Eco-Wrap system, a bolt-free method that doesn't pierce the tree and invite criticism from its grandparents. Using this system, the company can string six ziplines up to 1,000 feet long at heights of up to 80 feet through the aromatic canopies of incense cedars and ponderosa pine trees. Guides take visitors darting down these single-cable paths and across three suspension bridges. Then, they rappel toward the forest floor at one of two rappelling stations. As visitors glide through the forest, they can catch glimpses of wildlife as well as the Fresno Dome and other natural rock formations.
