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.

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.
Westerville Golf Center's lush driving range coddles golfers with first-rate facilities that landed it on Golf Range Magazine's 2011 Top 100 Ranges list. With the Birdie Frequent Hitter card in tow, golfers can whack, juggle, and comically trip over $36 worth of driving range balls while traversing 80 verdant grass slug-stations. A fleet of 40 covered tees, heated in winter, shelter stick swingers from summer sun and unseasonable chills, and loaner clubs are on hand for those still slicing the air with old mannequin legs. Ideal for sharing with a close friend or one of the staff's PGA instructors, orbs come in small ($5/40 balls), large ($7.50/75 balls), and jumbo ($13/175 balls) buckets.
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.
Scallywag Tag's arena dazzles eyes with a black-lit, neon-tinged pirate ship and 18th-century Caribbean village, which provides a labyrinth of fluorescent walls for marauding swashbucklers. After being split into two competing crews, participants receive a vest, a phaser, and instructions to tally as many points as possible by tagging opponents, swarming the enemy's home base, or holding a referee hostage until he or she doctors the score. The score itself is broadcast on wide-screen LCD scoreboards, but those who are too busy taking out the adversary to look at them can take heart knowing that at the end of the game, the referees announce the winning team.
Outside the fast-paced laser-tag arena, Scallywag Tag encourages visitors to recharge with a drink or a slice of pizza from the snack bar. The arcade sections also distract patrons by featuring perennial classics such as air hockey as well as new favorites, including Time Crisis 3 and Find That W2 Form.
The West-side location additionally lures younger passersby with a pirate-themed jump house and a 35-foot-long slide in the family entertainment center. The West-side’s black-light miniature golf tests hand-eye coordination skills, leading guests through a gauntlet of 18 holes that similarly embrace the pirate theme.
