NickelWorld hosts a selection of more than 100 games to entertain adventurous imaginations and quick-digited game wizards?and they all either cost just a nickel per play, or are free. While meandering through an arcade of more than 20 video games, patrons can slay aliens, henchmen, and the occasional evil cottontail along the way. Classics include Pac-Man, Galaga, and Frogger, in which amphibians halt oncoming traffic through persuasive arguments. After that, they can set off to visit more than 60 redemption games, in which sure-handed prowess translates to great prizes. And for those who just can't get enough of NickelWorld, the arcade also offers parties for up to 40 guests.

Contained entirely inside a 60,000-square-foot arena, CoCo Key Water Resort keeps its air temperature at a constant 84 degrees to complement its tropical-themed attractions. A trio of four-story waterslides dares bare feet forward, before the calm waters of the winding Coconut Grove Adventure River calmly buoy them. Parrot's Perch interactive play island and Coral Reef Cavern activity pool reel in splashers with an interactive hanging net and a tipping bucket, eschewing less popular activities, such as maritime trade negotiations. Guests can also pursue ample on-land activities in an indoor-outdoor spa or navigate 10,000 square feet of prize games at the Key Quest Arcade. In an effort to lessen energy consumption, visitors must bring their own towels, though staffers organize and provide supplies for children's birthday parties.

Between the dark, black walls at The Lazer Maze, green beams of light stretch from one wall to another, striking anyone willing to venture through their neon labyrinth. Levels of difficulty vary as beginners and pros nimbly crouch, tumble, and Macarena over and under laser beams, trying to beat the best time. The staff also equips a 3000-square-foot party room with party lighting, music, fog, and bubbles for birthday parties and other social events.

Volcano Falls Adventure Park's unlimited pass gives merriment-seekers a temporarily infinite supply of go-carting, laser tag, and miniature golf. The Lazer Zone allows young ones to grab light-shooting blasters and set out against their peers in futuristic battles or reenact the numerous laser skirmishes of Genghis Khan. A slick, bridge-laden go-cart track affords rubber-burners a six-minute spin around its lanes, and a kiddie track lets tykes join in on the zippy fun. Volcano Falls boasts two waterfall-flanked mini golf courses, including the 18-hole Palm course, which transplants putt-putt players to a tropical island setting surrounded by faux flora and fauna, as well as numerous marooned Tom Hanks wax figures.

Magic Waters' vast expanse of twisting slides, heated wave pools, and colorful attractions accessible to all visitors entertains entire families. While swimmers play, troops of lifeguards with extensive certification and training ensure safety, and mascots stand guard to pose for pictures with children and warn against the dangers of going down a water slide in a full-body costume. After careening through the mysterious darkness of the Abyss tube slide, guests drift down 1,200 feet of lazy river, sun themselves on the shores of the wave pool, or opt for more adrenaline with the Double Dare Drop, which plunges riders 75 feet in seconds. Younger aquanauts puff up their water wings in the interactive complex of Tiki Island or leapfrog over floating lily pads in Little Lagoon.

After exploring the twists and turns of rivers and waterslides, guests refuel with pizza, tacos, burritos, sandwiches or salads at Ocho's Cantina or indulge in cold treats at the Thirsty Turtle. A lineup of upcoming events entertains all ages with activities, while the park stays open until 9 p.m. on Friday Family Fun Nights and Magic Mondays.
