  • Valley Center Bowl
    Though still the same game at heart, the bowling competitions at Valley Center Bowl take on a sci-fi spin. The center's 30 lanes use flat-screen televisions to report bowlers' scores, play 3-D graphics, and display a digital clock counting down to the robot uprising. During events such as the Rock-N-Bowl, black and colorful lights dance along the walls and floors while videos pour from six 42-inch screens. Electronic entertainment coaxes visitors away from the lanes an into a newly remodeled, 3,200-square-foot redemption arcade that sits beside the Lazer Frenzy laser maze. Recently renovated with comfortable seating and flat-panel screens, Monterey Lanes entices bowlers of all ages to strive for a perfect 300 score while enjoying good company and crisp refreshments from the cocktail lounge. Weekend glow bowling and an onsite arcade keep gamers amused, and the pro shop caters to more serious bowlers. Monterey Lanes routinely lends its slick surfaces to charity events, such as Bowl Over Breast Cancer.

Even while visitors are standing in line or buckled into a ride, they are still surrounded by nature at Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park. Five waterfalls—representing the five major styles of waterfalls that occur in nature—gush with torrents of water. The grounds also feature 19 of Axel Erlandson's famous Circus Trees, which he created by grafting saplings so that they grew to form shapes such as hearts, lightning bolts, and basket weaves. In addition to touting the importance of animals such as monarch butterflies and honeybees, the park features six distinctive gardens brimming with informative displays and everything from conifers to tropical and subtropical flowers.

  • Shoot Zombies Now
    Normally, the grounds of Santa Clara Paintball play host to the day-to-day routine of all-out war between rival paintball factions. But for the month of October, a zombie outbreak transforms the fields and trees into a playground for the undead. As in a horror movie, they lurk in every shadow, waiting to steal unsuspecting kids' Raisinets. However, a few brave souls stand ready to prove their bravery armed with the ultimate weapons: paintball markers. During Shoot Zombies Now, Santa Clara Paintball's aptly named Halloween event, visitors can fight back against the zombie horde in one of two scenarios: Zombie Trailer Ride: a custom trailer carries up to 10 people through the infested fields, where they fire glow-in-dark paintballs at the monsters via paintball cannons mounted to the trailer (lasts approximately 20 minutes) Urban Zombie Hunt: wielding shotgun-style markers and a mere 15 rounds of ammo, you and a guide will venture out on foot through a zombie-infested town (lasts approximately 15 minutes)
