From corporate gatherings to sweet 16s to wedding receptions, Hyde's Professional DJ & Event Services knows how to start the party. A master of ceremonies can narrate and guide parties, and a DJ can create soundtracks of popular music. They also stock party rentals—tables, linen, fog machines—and photo and video booths, which come with props that may help guests in federal witness protection feel more comfortable about recording their birthday greetings.
After 40 years of enchanting families and youngsters at its original location, Treasure Island Fun Center relocated its abundant arcade games and tasty treats to a recently renovated 16,000-square-foot facility in 2007. Kiddie rides and games occupy toddlers, and older kids and adults compete in billiards and air-hockey bouts or zip through virtual tracks in racing games. Rekindle flames with classic arcade fixtures such as pinball, Centipede, and Ms. Pac-Man, or vie for tickets by playing skeeball or haggling virtual-reality scalpers. Once accumulated, those tickets can be traded for one of the arcade’s many prizes such as toys, lava lamps, and digital cameras.
With pizza by the slice, chicken nuggets, and ice cream, the full-service snack bar known as Pegleg’s Pizza refuels guests between games. Through its charity, the Bob and Jean Noell Charitable Foundation, Treasure Island Fun Center also reenergizes the community, having donated more than $125,000 to schools and youth organizations thus far.
Before Bogdan and Gosia Wienc founded Magic Dance Club, they had already cast spells across Europe with their elegant footwork. Having conquered the floors of their native Poland as finalists in the Polish National Championships, the couple perfected their craft in England under the tutelage of some of Europe's most esteemed ballroom dance coaches. By the time they made it to Florida, the dancing duo was unstoppable. They were named one of the twelve best couples at the U.S. National Championships in the standard ballroom division and earned membership in the National Dance Council of America.
Now, they're "in the business of making people happy" at their own studio, Magic Dance Club, where students master an array of joyous dances, including the tango, foxtrot, mambo, swing, and the cha cha. All lessons take a three part approach, as students start in private sessions, graduate to group lessons, and then field test their skills during dance parties.
The team of filmmakers at Video Valentines calls upon its experience in creating television commercials, independent films, and big-budget blockbusters to create tasteful clips of singles and couples in steamy scenarios. The female-owned service caters to men and women of all ages and showcases their most flattering angles while they dance, flaunt their physiques, and recreate love scenes from famous movies.
From outposts fashioned inside three different locations, Charlie's Pro Shop at Liberty Lanes upgrades the games of beginner bowlers and seasoned veterans alike. The shops cover their walls with a colorful array of balls, bags, shoes, and accessories–everything necessary to improve scores on the lanes or convince strangers you're a famous bowler named Strikes MacKenzie. Children's equipment readies pint-size pin crushers for battle, and custom drilling ensures digits of all shapes jive comfortably with their finger holes.
Revelers reel through Planet Jump's 11,500-square-foot bouncy empire, unleashing imaginations over eight inflatable playgrounds and obstacle courses. A 16-foot Superman guards the entrance to the Superman Challenge, where contestants bop and tumble their way through pop-up barriers before scampering up and gliding down an enormous air-filled slide. Aspiring pirates commandeer the Ahoy Matey's ship for a swashbuckling battle, leap around the 250-square-foot expanse of the Wall-E house, or fly down the Cars double-lane slide, just as the first Model T rolled off the line at Henry Ford's inflatable bouncy factories. Children three years old and younger have a dedicated play space away from older children, scampering through the under-sea themed Crab Cake. Since Planet Jump does not impose time limits, tykes can show up at 10 a.m. and cavort all the way to closing time.
Between bounces, visitors bolster brain power, aiming acumen, and earn prize tickets with video games, skee ball, and air hockey, or fuel more fun with treats and drinks from the snack bar, including chicken strips, soda, and juice (not included in this Groupon). Parents can relax in front of 65-inch TVs, watch their kids play, or carry on riveting conversations in binary code with the complementary WiFi.
