Gamin' Ride's signature rides are mobile theaters, in which groups of up to 24 kids play games for XBox 360, PS3, and Wii. This isn't typical video-game play, though—the trailer immerses kids in the games with realistic touches, such as vibrating seats that let kids feel the intensity of a car chase, and a Smell-O-Vision system that releases game-appropriate scents; Madden players, for example, smell freshly-cut grass. Each trailer's library features 70 of the most popular multi-player games also includes the latest sports releases, singing and dancing games, shooting games, and an extensive Mario collection.

Classes at La Piazza di Carolina marinate students in the language and culture of Italy, preparing families for vacations abroad and instilling a foundation of bilingualism in young children. The cooking workshop invites pint-sized sous chefs to gather around the table of a kitchen classroom to learn basic Italian cooking terminology while crafting classic Italian dishes and conjugating verbs to a golden brown. Tiny aprons and toques transform apprentices into confident spaghetti slingers as they knead pizza dough, blend ricotta fillings, and craft tiramisu, all while learning Italian translations for ingredients and techniques. Parting gifts include the day’s recipes and Italian vocab flashcards made out of pizza.

A lifelong acolyte of martial arts, native New Yorker and master instructor Joe Maurantonio discovered Bujinkan in the early ‘80s and trained under America’s top practitioners. An official member of the American Shidoshi Kai organization of Bujinkan teachers and the international Bujinkan Dojo, Maurantonio learned from international masters, including school founder soke Masaaki Hatsumi.

Comprising nine schools of martial arts, the Bujinkan tradition traces its roots to the styles used by ninja and samurai in feudal Japan. Classes eschew competition and artificial rules for exercises that recreate realistic combat situations. Students study attacks and defenses in slow exercises, perfecting rolls and disabling moves with a focus on personal growth, effective self-defense, and preparation for battles with armed closet monsters.
