Its name may imply a singular attraction, but The Big Event actually features myriad entertainment opportunities. The expansive Cherry Hill fun center has something for nearly everyone, whether they're bowlers, gamers, or ping-pong players. Read on to for a taste of the fun The Big Event has to offer:
Bowling alley: The alley caters to groups with 36 lanes, automatic scoring and bumpers, and wheelchair ramp access. For a more private bowling excursion, groups can head to the Memory Lanes VIP bowling suite. The room features private bowling lanes, mid-century-inspired furniture, and screens that can play photo slideshows of the time the guest of honor found a parking spot at Trader Joe's.
Arcade games and activities: The Big Event's Game Mania is home to everything from air hockey to arcade games, such as Down the Clown. Nearby, visitors can play pool on one of the six billiard tables or a few games of ping-pong.
Walls upon walls of fun: Guests can tackle an entertaining challenge in the form of an 18-foot rock wall, complete with a buzzer to announce when they've reached the top. Or they can launch themselves at a sticky velcro wall after donning a special suit.
My Gym Children's Fitness Center, which currently has more than 200 international locations, began more than 30 years ago as a structured place for children to safely play, acquire new skills, and romp off a sugar buzz. All classes are organized according to age level—starting as young as 4 months—and designed to incorporate the latest physiological and psychological research. Tiny Tykes gets babies moving with help from their parents, Mighty Mites teaches toddlers self-reliance and beginning sports skills, and Champions, a class for kids aged 6–8, emphasizes the importance of using teamwork to master more complex sports skills and achieve group goals such as building a human pyramid to reach the cookie jar. My Gym's energetic instructors are experts at using music, dance, and gymnastics to build youngsters' strength and self-esteem while stimulating their giggle-plexes. The noncompetitive environment fosters creativity and hands-on activities boost children's learning retention and fun quotient.

You wake up in an unfamiliar room, with no idea how you got there. What's even more puzzling is that the room is filled with locked boxes, strange doors, and clues that need to be solved if you want to escape. To add to the pressure, a timer ticks down from 60 minutes. Luckily, you're not alone—others are there to help you solve the puzzles and find a way out of this sudden amnesia without resorting to reading everyone's diary entries from the day before.
That's the basic situation behind one of Amazing Escape Room's several themed room-escape games. In other scenarios, players search for the identity of a double agent, infiltrate a famous martial arts dojo, or solve riddles in a room shaped like a human-sized 3-D chessboard. All the while, they hope they don't run into one of the dead ends in every room.
Since opening in 1975, Candlelight Dance Club has chased a single, unwavering mission: to curate an appreciation for ballroom dance while teaching its many styles. Six instructors stand ready to lead dancers through training to conquer foxtrot, swing, tango, waltz, and rumba steps. By offering both private and group lessons, Candlelight combines one-on-one attention from an instructor with group sessions that provide more camaraderie than a firefighting team moonlighting as a cheerleading squad. A bright, wood-floored studio hosts classes as well as the club’s weekly dance parties, which allow participants to try out learned moves in real time before debuting them in public. Many dance enthusiasts note a handful of dance-inspired benefits as their confidence shines, stress fizzles, and cardio endurance boosts.
