Through pulsing music, a booming voice announces the score. The dim light flickers and the vest around your torso flashes your stats. Your heart thunders like the steps of a river-dancing giant as you scamper up two levels to four soaring platforms, blasting beams toward opponents with your DarkLight phaser along the way.
This scene is a common one at Laser Web Dayton, an arcade and laser-tag arena decked out with the latest equipment and effects.

The Beach Waterpark is a liquid paradise outfitted with palm trees, white sand, cascading waterfalls, and more than 50 attractions spread across 35 acres of rolling terrain. From May 21 to September 11, general season pass holders can escape sweltering summer days and land-locked doldrums by lining up for thrill rides.
Sprawling across an indoor arena, Pump It Up's giant inflatables beckon kids to slide and bounce during private parties and open play. Technicolor bouncy castles send their inhabitants soaring, obstacle courses foster good-spirited competition, and ceiling-to-floor slides let sock-clad kiddies pretend they're escaping a giant gumball machine. Occasionally, Pump It Up's staff dims the lights and turns up the music to transform their facility into a glow-in-the-dark party catered to tweens and teens.
Pump It Up's staff supervises the arena during parties, giving parents time to relax and play patty-cake uninterrupted. They can also help customers design personalized parties inside a private room with options such as pizza, drinks, goodie bags, balloons, and ice cream.
The hilltop views from Cincinnati's art-influenced Mount Adams neighborhood reveals an impressive skyline nestled against the Ohio River, an organic confluence of urban achievement and natural beauty. For a scenic metropolitan experience, the 126-year-old Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden encompasses more than 65 acres with its impressive collection of flora and fauna. Visitors can marvel at the zoo's exotic felines, which includes white tigers and snow leopards. In the multisensory Night Hunters exhibit, one experiences nocturnal predators such as vampire bats, Burmese pythons, and caffeinated teenagers. A variety of museums plus an Omnimax Theater are housed in an art-deco railroad terminal built in 1933 at the Cincinnati Museum Center. The interactive exhibits at the Duke Energy Children's Museum include a simulated farm and a woodland adventure. The Museum of Natural History & Science looks back 19,000 years to the Ice Age, and the Cincinnati History Museum features a replica of a 94-foot side-wheel steamboat.
Beneath glimmering disco balls and colorful graffiti murals, roller skaters of all ages and experience levels careen across the hardwood floors of Fun Factory Roller Skating's indoor rink. The kid-friendly melodies of Radio Disney serenade pint-size skaters each Saturday morning, and top pop ballads resound across the rink on Saturday and Sunday nights. Gearing up patrons for wheeled motion, the onsite shop equips patrons with skates for rent or purchase, though customers are responsible for feeding and watering them.
Beyond the rink, the facility's sizeable arcade engages thumbs, and a bounce house ricochets lively lads and lasses off colorful, cushioned walls. After an action-packed day of exertion, guests can refuel at the concession stand with pizza and snacks. The center opens its facilities for private parties, field trips, and fundraisers while frequently inviting costumed characters to interact with kids and talk Wall Street with adults.
Cherry Grove Lanes embraces the changing of the seasons with both indoor and outdoor areas dedicated to group recreation. During the warmer months, the alley raises the nets on seven sand volleyball courts. Primed for nighttime play, the well-lit courts rest beside an open-air lounge that accommodates groups with colorful parasols, shaded tables, and ample room for airborne chest bumps.
Indoors, Cherry Grove Lanes provides solace from summertime sweats and wintertime gusts with 34 synthetic bowling lanes and a pub equipped with dartboards and pool tables. The lanes host fall and summer leagues for adults, seniors, and children, as well as bowling instruction from four-time PBA national titlist Brian Himmler. The staff also fires up sandwiches, appetizers, and pizza to prevent guests from cracking open bowling balls in hopes of reaching the tasty nougat cores.
