Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves. The crew also invites parents to join in on the fun, letting them bounce alongside their kids or make sweeping edicts from atop a bouncy-castle throne. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program, where instructors lead games and activities. Special events include family-bounce night, which lets parents join in the bouncing or relax in the party room and do grownup things, such as eat marshmallows with a knife and fork.

Frogs have evolved to be experts at jumping. Children are pretty good at it, too, though that?s more due to the supply of potential energy in their legs than anything else. Yet at Frogg?s Bounce House, tykes can ask advice from an expert as they bounce and play with Dancing Frogalina, a grown-up, felt-covered amphibian. Dancing Frogalina can show children how to jump with ease and breathe through their skin while they leap across 9,000 square feet of inflatable slides and fortresses.

Founded by a mom to give fellow parents a safe, fun place for their kids to play and exercise, Frogg?s Bounce House entertains all ages. Apart from its inflatable slides and obstacles, the jump emporium also boasts train tables, books, building blocks, a play house, fun cars, and a toddler gym for wee ones. Older siblings can play air-hockey, race through an obstacle course, or catch a flick in the movie lounge. Parents, meanwhile, can watch their progeny from the comfort of a seating area or they can surf the free WiFi or watch the game on TV.

The sight of a medieval castle surrounded by tall cacti may seem anachronistic at first, but it's hard to question the image when one is trying to putt a mini golf ball into a grassy hole off the circulating paddles of a windmill. It's whimsical moments like this that make Golf N? Stuff's name feel understated. Beyond the two lush 18-hole mini golf courses that draw year-round visitors, the entertainment center boasts go-karts, bumper boats, and more than 100 arcade games. Batting cages let both kids and adults perfect their swings. Visitors can refuel on hot dogs, Dippin' Dots ice cream, and soda at the snack bar.

People of all ages are drawn to the sensations of racing?the wind in their hair, the adrenaline coursing through their veins, the checkered flags fanning them while pit crews feed them grapes. So Go Kart World ensures everybody can find the racer's thrill in a safe environment. Its so accessible, in fact, that its raceways have been shared by families and celebrities including Jonah Hill, Jodie Foster, and Quentin Tarantino.

Six winding go-kart tracks give racers the ability to handpick their experience. One arena is designed just for bumper cars, whereas a polished-concrete slick track welcomes slide-intensive sprint-car racing. The park's biggest draw, however, is its two-story Super Track, which tests drivers' skills and stamina with a one-third-mile course set 15-feet above the ground and filled with hair-raising 26-degree turns. Each course even uses its own style of kart, from kid-sized machines to adults' champ and euro karts that can reach speeds more than 40 mph.

Blanketed in wall-to-wall trampolines, Sky High Sports delights barefoot fun seekers with springy terrain and an exclusive court for jumpers aged 8 and younger. Guests can hone front flips, backflips, and belly flops during intense free-bounce sessions. Each trampoline comes equipped with a specially designed spring-loaded frame and thick 2-inch safety pads that grant patrons a landing cushier than a corner office at a marshmallow factory. Stuffed with blocks of spongy, body-molding material, a foam pit dares treasure seekers to fling themselves in or scour its depths for the lost contents of bygone pockets. Pintsize aerialist posses can safely practice their synchronized salchows on 360 degrees of trampoline walls while court supervisors watch from the sidelines and award hard-earned praise with oversize scorecards. Sky High also offers AIRobics fitness classes to help jumpers explore the outermost stratospheres of trampoline possibilities.
