For nearly fifty years, the wait staff at The Pancake House Restaurant has been dropping by tables to plop down hearty plates of American diner food and refill guests' mugs with hot pours of coffee. The diner has filled up patrons with mouth-watering, hunger-slaughtering breakfast classics such as omelets filled with bacon and cheddar, french toast, and a family-style, all-you-can-eat platter of endless country potatoes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and buttermilk pancakes. The restaurant stays open past breakfast to ride out its own coffee buzz and serve up lunch and dinner options such as deli sandwiches, fish ‘n’ chips, and pork chops.
Jungle Gym & Cafe combines children's activities, fitness classes, and a gourmet café complete with free WiFi and two flat-screen TVs that light up with NFL action on Saturdays and Sundays.

Meanwhile, group fitness-classes practice cardio dance, yoga, and aerobics. Inside the medical spa suite, a doctor helps parents regain their youth with chemical peels, Botox, and vein repair treatments.

Boomers! parent company, Palace Entertainment, maintains eight theme parks, 11 water parks, and 21 family-entertainment centers tucked into various corners of the nation, making it an expert on providing family fun and laundering towels.
