  • AMF Bowling
    "You're up." At Bowlmor locations from coast to coast, that message is passed between friends as they heft a ball, step to the line, and take aim. Glow-in-the-dark lanes complete with lane-side servers and banquette seating up the style factor on traditional games of bowling. These snazzy bowling lanes might be where the competition starts, but they're certainly not where it ends. That's because Bowlmor offers more than just bowling—laser tag, arcade games, mini golf, bocce, and even ropes courses make appearances at various Bowlmor locations across the country. Likewise, soda and chips fall by the wayside in favor of more upscale American fare and specialty cocktails.

  • Kayo Boxing
    As fitness enthusiasts stroll into Kayo Boxing's gym, they?ll see red heavy bags rocking with the force of kicks and punches, groups of people doing knuckle pushups or jumping rope, and a ring at the back occupied by boxers trading jabs. The scene is welcoming, but intense?and that's exactly how the USA Boxing?certified coaches intend it. New guests can take advantage of classes intended for nonfighters, including group training sessions that help attendees get fit like a boxer?burning up to 1,000 calories per class. Like fighters, class participants execute footwork and reflex drills, and perfect their hand-eye coordination at the speed bag. For the competitive boxer or kickboxer, the center offers one-on-one training that incorporates modern boxing skills and techniques while building up strength, stamina, and agility. The instructors work with all ages and body types: they train kids by mixing sports conditioning with boxing and kickboxing to instill confidence and discipline while teaching self-defense techniques.

  • Cradle of Aviation Museum
    Flanked by seven other aircraft, a Grumman F-11 hangs suspended in a shallow dive over the main entrance to Cradle of Aviation Museum’s four-story glass atrium. Three viewing levels on wraparound balconies afford views of the aircraft that only fellow pilots in close formation ever saw when it was in service. The 150,000-square foot facility’s eight exhibits grant similarly intimate glimpses of more than 75 aircraft and spacecrafts that trace the historic path of Long Island’s aviation contributions since 1870. Those artifacts include a replica of the Wright Brothers’ 1899 kite, five aircraft made in Long Island for World War II, and the Grumman Lunar Module LM-5 “Eagle,” which transported Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin to that soundstage that looked like the moon. Patrons also get a chance to soar skyward in the X-Ride Theater, a 30-seat motion simulator whose “Fly with the Blue Angels” film mimics the piloting of a U.S. Navy squadron jet. Over in the JetBlue Sky Theater Planetarium and the National Geographic Dome Theater, the immersive screens bring to life subjects such as National Geographic's Mysteries of the Unseen World. After riding the Historic Nunley's Carousel, which was built in 1912, guests can reenergize over a meal in the Red Planet Cafe, whose space station décor evokes a Martian cafeteria in the year 2040.

  • Long Island Children's Museum
    An entire city can be built within Long Island Children's Museum. All it takes is a little imagination, and a basic understanding of architectural principles like balance and proportion. Luckily, the "Best of Long Island"-winning museum's Bricks & Sticks and Building Boom with KEVA exhibits teach those very concepts. Museum educators and interactive software provide inspiration as kids (and adults) design and shape skyscrapers, castles, bridges, and more out of blocks. Those building activities are just two of the 14 hands-on exhibits that take families across the museum's grounds. The TotSpot area lets the youngest visitors slide and play on age-appropriate equipment, while other galleries let kids explore outdoor gardens, step inside giant bubbles, and film mock-newscasts, complete with hard-hitting expos?s on just who is the real John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt. Even the onsite theater has an interactive element. Here, actors and musicians often invite kids on stage to join in on the performance.
