  • Royal Pin
    Royal Pin’s four bowling centers boast a total of 270 gleaming lanes, but their widely varied facilities offer far more than games of tenpins. At all four locations, cosmic-bowling nights create a psychedelic atmosphere with fog, music, and black lights. The Woodland location, though, was voted Best Bowling in Indianapolis 2012 by CityVoter and ups the ante with flat screens above the lanes and cushy couches where players recline while waiting their turn to take a ride through the pinsetter. Its adjacent outdoor mini-golf course, Pirates’ Cove, sends putters on a salty adventure with 18 Lilliputian fairways populated by streams, waterfalls, and a pirate ship. In addition, the location recently received a makeover, with a new midway, lounge, bar and restaurant. In that same center, there's also the two-story Pirate's Quest laser tag, which combines the excitement of laser tag and swashbuckling. At the Expo location, the theme relates to another exciting frontier: space. In Laser Storm tag, players battle for rights to moon territories. Besides their alleys, Royal Pin also manages the 5-acre Greatimes Family Fun Park, where kids zip around a go-cart track, bounce through a multilevel playland, or pilot bumper boats equipped with blaster squirt guns and highly sensitive grownup detectors.

Select local landscapers create macro-landscapes with in-season botany as well as specialized microgardens, designed to showcase specific plant varieties and new design ideas that homeowners can easily incorporate into their own yards. Gardeners can stock up on tools, plants, and art at the Gardener’s Market, full of national and regional artisan vendors. The children’s area entertains youngsters with age-appropriate activities, such as filling flowerpots with soil and playing patty-cake with the limbs of trees.

  • Tibbs Drive-In
    In this day of DVDs and in-home, on-demand options, drive-in theatres are a rarity. But Tibbs Drive-In Theatre continues to provide what’s generally considered to be an old but cherished way to watch movies, particularly around Indianapolis. From early spring through mid-fall each year, Tibbs visitors can enjoy large-screen movies from the comfort of their own vehicles, or pull together an array of lawn chairs and other foldable furniture for strategically-positioned seats inside the facility’s parking lot. A variety of movies run across the four screens, usually as double-headers, making Tibbs an all-night destination. Concession stand options are plentiful and varied, and a large, grass-covered area is available near the main screen, where younger moviegoers often gather and play.

  • Fastimes Indoor Karting
    When drivers take to the track at Fastimes' Indoor Karting, they follow in the treads of professional racers such as Mario Andretti and Tony Stewart. Amateurs and visiting professionals alike race at up to 40 miles per hour on the 900-foot bi-level track, whose asphalt and epoxy-resin surface helps karts grip and make clean turns. Each of Fastimes' sleek Sodikarts is outfitted with roll bars and caution lights, which team up with seat belts and the facility's rentable helmets for optimum safety. Fastimes' onsite Italian deli, The Final Lap, bolsters drivers' strength with handmade pizzas and invites drivers to linger over beer and wine after the day's races are through.

    Wheels glide gracefully across Skateland Roller Skating Center's indoor rink to a soundtrack of popular music and gleeful shrieks. Guests don rolling shoes while capering to Disney tunes, which frequently inspire hand-holding, friend-making, and adopting a wisecracking animal sidekick. All ages stir and stomp as they skim across the hardwood to the sounds of Top 40 hits and hip-hop songs, and skaters can upgrade their skill levels at Saturday morning skate lessons. All-inclusive party packages are fun options for birthday, bachelorette, or office-related celebrations and safer than traditional icicle-jousting tournaments.

  • Ebash Video Game Center
    Established: 2004 Handicap Accessible: Yes Staff Size: 2–10 people Parking: Parking lot Reservations/Appointments: Optional Most popular offering: Three hours for $10 Pro Tip: Weekends are the busiest time, but also the most fun with more gamers all playing together. Good for Kids: Yes Walk-ins Welcome: Yes Q&A with Zack Johnson, Owner, Founder What sets your business apart from your competition? We are the only facility of our kind that offers fun weekend overnight events for middle- and high-school video-game enthusiasts. We are also [an] eSports tournament facility. What was the inspiration for starting this business? Zack Johnson, started this business after holding lock-in events at his church while he was the youth director. He decided it would be easier to set up the equipment somewhere permanently and charge by the hour for use. All of the stores feature lock-ins every single Friday and Saturday night, and there are major events every holiday. What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer? Parents are continuously thankful for creating such a family-friendly place to leave their kids, and the kids never want to leave. What’s your favorite part about your job? We love getting to know all of our gamers, both young and old. It is also great to watch situations like a college football lineman sit down next to a small, shy, high-school freshman and instantly they have a bond through the game they are playing together. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Many people ask why they would play at our facility when they own the games at home. We always explain that it is the social aspect that draws customers to us, not just the number of systems and games we offer. Instead of playing alone in your bedroom or basement with a headset, you can sit next to friends both old and new and give them a high five at the end of a game.
