When the ore vein beneath the mining town of Goldfield faulted, the once booming settlement dwindled. As the number of residents dropped, its fate seem sealed as a ghost town. However, as time marched on, and the historic structures endured, the ambience of the place became something of a tourist attraction. Locals saw an opportunity to transform the old town into a unique amusement park, paying tribute to the past with family-friendly fun, games, and rides such as The Dolly Steamboat and Gold Panning at Prospector's Palace.
Goldfield's skyline is markedly different today, thanks to the knowledge of renowned thrill-ride designer Stan Checketts. The expert—whose work can be found in Las Vegas casinos, Six Flags, and Disney parks—transformed the once empty air into an adrenaline-pumping ride: Superstition Zipline. Visitors safely strap into ski lift-like seats to ride two at a time. The ride propels people backwards, then sends them soaring above the old mining buildings.
Don't leave the kids in front of the TV this weekend. With plenty of rides, games, and attractions, Prospector's Palace in Apache Junction is sure to be a blast for the whole family!

Lauded by the Phoenix New Times as the best indoor skate park in town, Xtreme Air Jump 'N Skate captures 30,000 square feet of adrenaline-tinged family fun and transforms it into a high-flying jump park and a custom-designed skate park.The park's 54 connected trampolines, velcro wall, and Slamball courts provide ample entertainment for those without boards, and skateboarders and scooters can launch into the foam pit and rip the rails and ramps at the 10,000-square-foot park while attentive staff monitor them closely. Near the skate park, the Little Xtremers park pumps up inflatable castles where children aged 5 and younger can perform bouncing renditions of Hamlet. Parents can await playing progeny at the Grind Cafe, watch their kids on the large screen viewing TV, or just relax in the Parents' Lounge.
JumpStreet is an indoor trampoline park where taut floors and angled walls made of springy trampoline surfaces beckon children and adults to bounce back and forth or try aerodynamic flips and gravity-defying leaps. The arena is structured like a skateboard park, though bouncers don’t need any equipment to hop across the wall-to-wall planes or climb up, slide down, or spring off the tilted trampoline walls, which can also be used to recreate the summer Olympics’ popular trampoline belly-flop event. Guests can hop on over to the springy dodgeball courts, where safe, competitive play is enhanced with ample bouncing, and arcades and batting cages offer engaging activities for those who need to rest their feet. Scattered across JumpStreet’s various locations are an assortment of other safe, kinetic activities, including a bull ride, a multicolored maze, and a foam pit.
