It’s an adventureland for grown-ups and kids alike: Two miniature golf courses, go-carts, bumper cars, game room, batting cages, a giant slide...there’s even an on-site pizzeria if you get hungry or just need a break from the action. (And while the kids are running around burning off energy, grown-ups can relax at one of the two fully stocked bars.) Be sure to check out the Gator Glades while you’re there—it’s the only place in the entire Midwest where you can feed live baby alligators.
