  • Strike Zone II
    The Strike Zone II gives parents a positive place to bring their whole brood for athletic, academic, or musical enrichment under one polymathic roof. While one child raises a joyful tune during music lessons, another can enlist a tutor for help with memorizing multiplication tables or searching the Gettysburg Address for hidden emoticons. For the athletically inclined, Mark Stevens—formerly a coach at the Division I, II, and III collegiate levels—heads up a staff of baseball and softball instructors who help cadets hone hitting, pitching, and fielding prowess during four-packs of lessons. The onsite batting cage lets hitters practice churning out frozen ropes within a safely confined space, and the practice pitching mound offers young hurlers a place to practice building moats for protection against charging batters.

  • Pirate Mini Golf
    Glowing waves lap at the walls of Pirate Mini Golf, an 18-hole indoor course brought to life by black lights. A lighthouse beckons golfers to holes in one, while windmills distract golfers from making perfect putts and noticing the tiny people living inside them. But mini golf isn’t the only source of fun—racing video games and pirate-themed pinball entertain in the arcade, and guests spar vocally at Karaoke Cove. Wii games and movies are often emblazoned across a huge projector screen, which keep kids engaged while parents enjoy free WiFi at nearby tables.

  • Mount Southington Ski Area
    Mount Southington Ski Area sprung from a dream. In the 1960s, its rolling mountainside contained not ski trails, but dairy cows, most of whom couldn't even snowboard. But then new owners bought the dairy farm with the hopes of creating their own slopes. In 1964, the park officially opened, launching 50 years of athletic achievements and family memories. Today, an old red barn?converted into a ski shop and caf??echoes the mountain's past. Outside, the park's 51 acres are covered with snow, thanks to the combined efforts of Mother Nature and artificial snowmakers. Four chair lifts, a handle tow, and two carpet lifts ferry visitors up this mountainside, where they can soar down 14 different trails during the day or under the night's twinkling stars. The snowy routes come in three levels of difficulty, and young skiers can learn the basics at The Glacier training area. Snowboarders can face the rails, boxes, and other exciting elements sprawl across two terrain parks. PSIA-certified instructors are on standby for advanced lessons, and athletes of all ages can rent equipment from the rental department. Mount Southington Ski Area is located off I-84 exit 30.
