When drivers take to the track at Fastimes' Indoor Karting, they follow in the treads of professional racers such as Mario Andretti and Tony Stewart. Amateurs and visiting professionals alike race at up to 40 miles per hour on the 900-foot bi-level track, whose asphalt and epoxy-resin surface helps karts grip and make clean turns. Each of Fastimes' sleek Sodikarts is outfitted with roll bars and caution lights, which team up with seat belts and the facility's rentable helmets for optimum safety. Fastimes' onsite Italian deli, The Final Lap, bolsters drivers' strength with handmade pizzas and invites drivers to linger over beer and wine after the day's races are through.
Monster Mini Golf welcomes guests of all ages with 18 holes of spooky, glow-in-the-dark fun. Fog machines, colorful lasers, and special effects lighting surround the custom-designed indoor course. Meanwhile, an energetic soundtrack of 70s, 80s, and 90s party music keeps spirits high as the visitors conquer each hole?s monster-themed obstacles and hazards. In between songs, the course DJ pumps up the crowds with interactive games and trivia questions, rewarding lucky winners with take-home prizes. Groups of family and friends can return to one of the private party rooms once they finish the course or they can visit Monster Mini Golf?s arcade and play on the glowing air hockey tables, skee ball machines, and other games.
There are plenty of chances to grab a lane at Beech Grove Bowl. That's because the alley is open 24/7, letting guests squeeze in a game after dinner, before breakfast, or during an important business meeting they'd rather skip. In addition to organizing league games, setting up bumpers for kids' parties, and re-lacing every bowling shoe, the facility is known for their pizzas and large calzones, among other menu items, such as burgers and fries.
Great-white sharks, silverback gorillas, and bengal tigers guard the nine holes of That Fun Place's phosphorescent mini-golf course. That?s where families tap neon golf balls through aquatic and jungle landscapes before kids holster putters to climb through the padded three-story playground. Visitors can slip through tunnels and peer through portholes at the Greenfield location or slam into each other under more black lights in bumper cars at the Greenwood location. Meanwhile, in the laser-tag arena, kids and adults slink through rainforests and space ships to fire the same photons that render alien skin smooth and hairless.
Outside, carnival games envelop visitors in natural light, and children mine for gems and arrowheads at the wooden sluicing contraption. With a full-service pizza parlor on site and an arcade filled with more than 40 games, That Fun Place can also host birthday parties for up to 22 guests.
Encompassing 5 acres of family-centric fun, Greatimes Family Fun Park's attractions provide safe jollity for children and adults. While most outdoor attractions—such as bumper boats and mini-golf—require agreeable weather, the center's 22,000-square-foot indoor play haven grants rain-or-shine merriment, as well as an arcade and prize-redemption games that include classic skee-ball. As pintsize family members ramble through the playland, three ball pits urge energetic jumping, and slides and tunnels add varying terrain to afternoon play. Pizzas and sub sandwiches from the play center's restaurant also supply noshes for family meals celebrating go-kart victories or the long-awaited engagement of Pac-Man to Ms. Pac-Man.
The staff at Hanna Haunted Acres knows that there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all nightmare. That's why they've curated a lineup of five different haunts, each with their own spine-tingly style. Inside Saw (an attraction approved by Lionsgate), visitors find authentic props and more than 7,000 sq. ft. of winding rooms and hallways that recreate some of the franchise's most terrifying scenes. Other attractions include haunted hayrides around the farm and a twisty corn maze designed by a vengeful scarecrow. Those whose greatest fears include standing in line can skip straight to the screaming with a VIP pass, while snacks and mugs of steaming hot chocolate keep patient patrons warm between haunts.
