Riley's Farm recreates the convivial, rustic atmosphere of an 18th century public house, serving up farm fresh comfort food including barbecue, baked bread, Scottish beef pies, and cider-baked ham alongside mugs of ale and glasses of wine. In the nearby orchards and berry fields, visitors can pick their own bushels of apples, pears, and strawberries, and a schedule of living-history reenactments sends audiences deep into America's past to witness scenes from the Revolutionary War and Gold Rush. Located in a 1880's packing house, the farm's theatre company offers up dinner events that feature staged drama, improvisation, and a premium on guest interaction. Many shows include live music and dancing, as well as outdoor activities like country hayrides or tomahawk-throwing competitions.
At the recently opened SkyTown Trampoline Park, kids and adults find plenty of ways to burn off excess energy in a clean, safe environment. Jumpers ricochet off various padded surfaces, including the very walls themselves. A rebound might send them hurtling toward a cushy foam pit or a basketball hoop poised for a perfect slam dunk. Youngsters can also exercise their throwing arms on the dodgeball court, and wee ones who are too small for the main court find their own fun in the tamer Jump-A-Roo area.
Because the trampoline-filled center is a part of Splash Kingdom water park, kids are only a few steps away from go-karts, mini golf, and bumper boats; water slides and other aquatic attractions keep things cool during the summer months. While tots refuel with pizza, adults can head to the Upper Deck Sports Lounge to count their favorite quarterback's pores on one of five massive 15-foot high-definition projection screens.
