Why it's fun: Strap into MaxFlight and feel like you're on a roller coaster. The orb twists from side to side and rolls upside-down. "It's pretty wild," says manager Donald Dalia. For the younger kids, there's an enormous maze painted with jungle scenes of a gorilla, panda and elephant. A kiddie train chugs underneath. If Mom and Dad get weary, check out the back-massage lounge chairs.
