  • 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.

  • Indy Parks and Recreation
    The 207 green spaces overseen by Indy Parks and Recreation aren't just oases of natural beauty in the middle of the city: they're also the setting for many of Indianapolis' most diverse cultural attractions. Parks throughout the city host events that range from basketball and league sports games to fitness and yoga on the grass to all-ages, hands-on art classes. In warm weather, sounds of outdoor film screenings and more than 80 live concerts reverberate through the hills and trees. Meanwhile, 20 indoor and outdoor water recreation facilities encourage splashing, and picnic shelters and open-air pavilions host events ranging from large-scale family reunions to children's birthday parties. The city's parks also inject their entertainment with a bit of education. The hilltop Garfield Park Arts Center organizes live performances and classes in visual and performing arts. Eagle Creek Park](http://bit.ly/1j2TWNp)—the parks system's crown jewel—celebrates nature. Its more than 4,300 acres of forested terrain take visitors out of the city, but attractions such as the aerial ropes course, Go Ape, and the live reptile and amphibian exhibits at the Earth Discovery Center convince them to stay.

  • Indianapolis Zoo
    Located in the heart of downtown, the Indianapolis Zoo allows visitors to immerse themselves in the natural habitat of a myriad of wildlife. The Ocean exhibit features the country’s largest smooth dogfish shark touch pool and a 17-foot underwater dome for viewing dolphins. Nearby, the Desert exhibit raises the temperature to appease the meerkats, iguanas, cacti and poisonous snakes that inhabit the space. The Plains exhibit allows kids and adults alike to check out the lions through thick-gauge glass, explore a pavilion overlooking white rhinos as they play in the mud, watch staff feed giraffes or feed them yourself and test your legs against a simulation of the zoo’s own cheetahs. Elsewhere, guests can gawk at tigers and fawn over brown bears, then ride the zoo’s mini-train for a faraway look at animals and behind the scenes pavilions, before taking in the sprawling, butterfly-filled indoor garden.
