On 18 playing fields at two Wacky Warriors locations, players can storm a two-story castle, take cover behind barrels stacked in pyramids, and weave through red inflatables. Each 15-minute open-play game mixes novice and expert participants, who compete in matches such as hide-and-seek and capture the flag under the watchful eye of trained referees. Fighters take to the fields with their choice of more than 500 rental markers; spectators can monitor the action from netted areas next to the brickyard and airball fields.
Along with open play, Wacky Warriors hosts private parties and special events such as zombie-apocalypse scenarios. After bouts, players can relax in the pavilion, sign their artwork on opponents' gear, and grill up a feast in Wacky Warriors' massive barbecue pits.
Playtime Party Center encourages tykes to get their wiggles and giggles out in a sprawling, indoor playground with attractions for the whole family. An open space filled with inflatable slides and structures entices younger guests, who can split time between their cushy kingdom and the center's wide-open roller skating floor. Classic arcade games let guests compete for tickets to trade in for prizes, and private rooms foster birthday celebrations and family get-togethers.
Ten flat-screen televisions play sports, sports, and more sports inside Texas Smokehouse and Saloon, and on select nights, the bar treats patrons to live musical acts and haiku readings. Drinks pair with chicken and beef sandwiches and soft pretzels brushed with a Budweiser and garlic-herb seasoning.
As they enter the training circuit at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. Thirty seconds is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
