Maybe it's an untamed jungle, or a space ship where astronauts encounter alien life forms. Or perhaps it's a medieval castle under attack from evil knights. The multi-tiered play set, which stretches across much of the indoor center, can be anything kids want it to be. That’s probably why it’s Bonkerz Party Zone's most popular attraction. Young adventurers can unleash their imaginations as they climb, swing, and bounce their way across the sprawling red and blue levels. Parents, meanwhile, keep an eye on their little tykes through the see-through mesh siding— that is if they don't jump into the play set themselves.
The fun spills over into other attractions, such as a moon bounce and an ocean-themed climbing wall, which forgoes traditional handholds for ones that look like fish. Electronic beeps ring out at the arcade, where kids and adults can compete in air hockey or play non-violent video games. To fuel family playtime, an onsite snack bar churns out New York-style pizza, and staffers supply themed birthday cakes for special occasions.
Captain Brett Wilson once caught 60 giant bluefin tuna in one fishing season, a feat that’s more impressive when you realize that each fish weighed 500 pounds on average. Wilson, a second-generation fisherman who started casting at age 10, shares his expertise during half- and full-day fishing trips at Hindsight Sportfishing Charters. Aboard a 42-foot boat, he departs from Rock Harbor in search of bluefin tuna, striped bass, bluefish, and the elusive Poseidon family reunion.
Film buffs across six states stare wide-eyed at large cinema screens, losing themselves in first-run Hollywood movies and the smell of fresh, buttery kernels within Your Neighborhood Theatre's 17 locations. Though all theaters prioritize comfortable seating, old-fashioned friendly service, and high-stakes preshow trivia slideshows, each location encompasses its own distinct charm, be it through arthouse décor, 3-D screens, or Rhode Island's vintage 1950's drive-in setting.
With half of Cape Cod at its oar tips, The Paddler's Shop is a prime launching point for kayakers to safely explore the region in a 10-foot recreational kayak. Oar-wielding duos can cast off outfitted with top-quality life jackets and paddles in search of adventure or discarded tapes of Creed's basement sessions. The bicep-pumping voyage sets novice sea-strokers out in the sheltered waters of Toby's Island or traversing the autumnal beauty of the salt marshes. More advanced aquanauts can take on the waves of the open sea at Wings Cove or Mashnee Island, investigating the wiles of the Cape Cod Canal in its entirety or circumnavigating shores to avoid troupes of jealous bicycles.
After starting in 2006 with a single 17-foot Boston Whaler, All Cape Boat Rentals’ owners knew they needed to expand their fleet. In the seven years since then, they’ve welcomed 11 new Whalers to their watercraft family, which now includes boats ranging from 16–25 feet in length. They rent out their vessels to wayfarers of all stripes, from the weekender looking for a one-hour joyride to the salty veteran in search of a full-season rental. The boats can journey as far out as Lewis Bay for a sighting of the three-hour lifespan of the Egg Island sandbar, or stay close to home in Hyannis Harbor with a stop at Baxter’s Boathouse. For an extra fee, clients can attach a line and pair of skis or an inner tube, or use one of the boat’s rod holders to comb the waves for tuna or mackerel. In addition to its stable of Whalers, All Cape Boat Rentals also maintains a fleet of Yamaha WaveRunner VX Sports for riders who want to conquer the surf through sheer power.
