Walking into Rolling Thunder Skating Center feels a lot like walking into an indoor carnival: there are rides inside, an arcade with video games and skeeball, and there's even a mural of a rollercoaster on the walls. Still, the center's core identity pulses on the groove of pure roller fun, boasting an expansive rink and its own pizzeria. Around the whole scene, skaters can glide and groove to Top-40 tunes. Parents can join kids on the rink, or watch from the booths in the seating area to ensure that their kids are safe and aren't mouthing any lyrics to Will Smith's Parent's Just Don't Understand.

Children do a lot of learning in school, but many of today's classrooms aren't properly equipped with blow-up slides and bounce houses that are essential to teaching lessons about fun. Monkey Town picks up where schools have failed, giving kids the freedom to stick themselves to a Velcro wall or frolic on the jungle gym. Under close staff supervision, obstacle courses challenge kids to use their wits to overcome impediments and solve the riddles of an obstructive sphinx. A snack area and four private party rooms provide an oasis for celebrating birthdays and refueling from the day's fun with pizza and sodas.
