  • Roving Imp Theatre
    Roving Imp Theater & Coffee House—the only improv venue in Kansas—showcases the madcapped, off-the-cuff antics of improvateurs culled from across the U.S. and abroad. Comedic illusionists conjure one-act plays, making characters, scenes, and plots appear out of thin air using a complicated system of smoke, mirrors, and audience suggestions. The schedule changes as regularly as the star performer in a one-man adaptation of Cats, but recurring acts include Serial Cereal, an improvised sitcom that follows a family of wrestlers through weekly episodes, and RI Spectacular, a Whose Line Is It Anyway?-style game show.

  • Thunder Beach at Aaron's Family Fun Center
    The thwap! of wrists connecting with volleyballs might have you sniffing the air for salt and sunscreen at Thunder Beach. Though the latest addition to Aaron's Family Fun Center is landlocked, its sand volleyball courts and outdoor patio bar could easily convince you otherwise. Here, players can set up their teammates for a spike without ever having to stop the game to shoo away seagulls or move a beached whale. Thunder Beach gives players the option to join a league or just show up and rent an open court. Bright lights enable hours of evening play, and workshops led by professionals help players hone their skills. And if the volleyball doesn't catch your interest, no matter? the courts can be reconfigured for soccer, football, or ultimate frisbee. Between sets, refuel with some food from the bar or escape to Aaron's Family Fun Center for a round of skeeball or go bowling at Park Lanes Family Fun Center .

  • Kansas City Ice Center
    The ice in Kansas City Ice Center's newly renovated rink accumulates blade scratches from skaters of all stripes, including hockey players and two of the most revered figure-skating clubs in the U.S. Throughout the year, the facility acts as a practice arena for those clubs as well as a classroom for nonprofessional skaters. Both children and adults master techniques during Learn to Skate programs, and aspiring slap shooters strengthen their grasp on competitive fundamentals during Learn To Play Hockey programs. In addition to lessons, the center also hosts special events, such as birthday parties and on-ice reenactments of The Great Banana Peel Spill of 1908.
