WHY WE LOVE Blackbeard’s cave

Thrill-seeking kids can zip around in Go Karts around a quarter-mile long track featuring a bridge and a tunnel. Younger drivers can go with mom or dad in a two-seater to join in the fun.

The pirate-themed miniature golf course is a fan favorite, featuring bridges, cool caves and pools to challenge players with 20 holes.

Land-lubbers stay away from the Bumper Boats. You will get wet. These air-filled boats come equipped with water-guns and watch out for the water booms from the pool.  Another water activity is Water Wars, where opponents man launching stations to hurl water balloons at opponents.

Let the little ones explore the Kiddie Park and they’ll love the C.B. Huntington Train ride, the dragon roller coaster or the Lollipop Swings.

Baseball lovers can spend some time at the batting cages. With 10 cages, there’s rarely a wait and the pitches start off slow, then move up to 92 miles per hour.

Other activities include a 30-foot Rock Wall, a driving range, an archery challenge, a Euro-Bungy jumping ride and a paint ball arena.
