Southern California Interactive Fun
Leave it to the Southern California destinations to send you into air combat or careening around a race course. For tamer activities, there are mini-golf courses, waterslides, arcades, lazer tag, rock walls, batting cages and a host of fun hands-on action.
There's no denying California's reputation for fulfulling your fantasies when you schedule an authentic combat plane flight. Air Combat USA makes you a "Fighter Pilot for a Day" as you take to the skies for your once in a lifetime experience. The flight options are far from inexpensive, but for the adventurer who wants to be John Wayne for a day, there's nothing that compares to this.
If you're looking for some hands on fun, head to Boomers at nearby Irvine. Here you can go on the Bumper Boats, try your skills in the batting cage, play laser tag, traverse the mini-golf course, climb the rock wall or have the kids take to the road on the kiddie go cart course. There's a kid's playland, King Arthur's carnival and a gameroom with the latest video games. Parking is free and there's no fee for admission.
With five mini-golf courses, lazer "joust" tag, an arcade and waterslides, Camelot Golf in Anaheim is a fun destination for the family to enjoy.
It looks like sitting in freeway traffic jams has sprouted an industry where you can fulfill your need for speed. Speed Zone is another attraction where you can race around the course. Speed Zone isn't as hard core as Dromo One and also offers mini-golf and a fun arcade.
