Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $10 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (a $3.99 value).

Pump It Up's two indoor inflatable arenas bounce socked striplings high off the ground with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Trained, amiable staffers supervise fun-filled visits where parents can leap around with their kids through gargantuan, air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Attendees can also focus their free play for special events, such as custom birthday parties and themed, private team parties. These themed 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. Both giant arenas are climate controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by the well-trained staff and local police. Supplementing its thorough rule enforcement with expert installation and anchoring, Pump It Up holds itself to strict safety standards.

Soft play areas on floors of bright, padded tile. A slide filled with rushing water. A vibrant palm tree, suspending bouncing balls striped in neon yellow, pink, and purple. These are just some of the 10 attractions at Yu Kids Island, a year-round playground that lets children play inside, keeping them away from the elements and from establishing Lego empires. For parents and players in need of refueling, a vibrant blue-and-green cafeteria serves Lavazza coffee and hot chocolate. Playground staffers also set up complete party packages with playground access and all materials included, eschewing the need to book performing clowns or ponies dressed as clowns.

Elk Grove Park District's Rainbow Falls Waterpark beckons water lovers to its sprawling aqueous grounds—complete with slides, pools, a three-story funhouse, picnic spots, and bath facilities for the whole family. Lounge in Sunfish Bay, a tranquil leisure pool, or imitate amphibious travelers on the Lily Pad Leap, hopping across enormous, buoyant green lily pads while gripping an overhead rope bridge before three bullfrogs return demanding to know who's been eating their flies. The Raging Reptile River teems with transparent tubes, and the Calypso Twist twirls adventurists down four winding slides. During the course of a sun-splashed afternoon, families can disperse throughout the three-story funhouse of Pelican's Peak, execute the perfect pike from the Dolphin Dive, or let toddlers test the waters of Coqui Frog Pond's tot pool before committing to enroll them in a preschool of fish.

Through curls of fog lit by ultraviolet light, players find vantage points to take aim at their opponents in Lazer X's bilevel, 6,500-square-foot arena. Wearing computerized vests, players blast each other with phasers while avoiding distractions caused by pulsing strobe lights, animatronic creatures, and up-tempo music that begs them to stop and do the macarena. After the game, vests tally up points, and players can review their scores on a printout that will also detail the hits they made and received. Alternately, patrons can follow-up games with a trip to the arcade where they can keep their trigger fingers in tip-top condition.

Winner of the People’s Choice Award for best haunted house two years in a row from readers of Chicago Haunted House, Disturbia Torment of Fears sets spines to tingle with an arsenal of creepy attractions. Guests equipped with a V.I.P. speed pass skip to the front of the waiting line, receiving rapid entry and skipping otherwise-mandatory pat-downs from the house’s werewolf security guards. Upon entry, complete darkness envelops visitors as terrifying characters and nightmarish scenarios coerce screams out of hiding. Free parking keeps cars safe from the frights, and an indoor waiting area shields visitors from wind, weather, and jack-o’-lanterns that have developed self-awareness.
