Summer Fun in the Tri-State

Looking for some summer fun in the Tri-State?  

Here are some ideas to do w/friends. I’ve been doing research to find these for you and havent been able to check any out yet.  Lmk which one(s) you guys try!

http://escapetheroomchallenge.com/  What if suddenly you find yourself locked in a room with friends, family and even strangers! You have only one hour to figure out how to get out the room and you agreed to do this – FOR FUN! You would be part of the biggest new Entertainment craze in the world! A live, first person, interactive game called Escape the Room Challenge. Discover hidden items, solve challenging puzzles, and unlock amazing secrets to win your freedom. You’ve only got 60 minutes, so think quickly.  My brother and sister-in-law did this w/her fam and they had a blast!

http://www.americanlegacytours.com/queen-city-is-haunted/ Discover stories of grisly murders, ghastly deaths and other disturbing tales buried deep within Cincinnati’s storied past. Linger in the halls of an archaic building teeming with paranormal activity and walk around the grounds where human remains have recently been unearthed. Our guides will enthrall you with the heinous history of the Queen City that might just keep you up at night!  LOVE haunted house stuff!  Dave doesnt.  He likes to watch the stories on TV, but doesnt want to go for fear of them following him home.  

http://www.findlaymarket.org/  Would you believe I’ve never been to Findley Market?!  No idea why.  I will be putting it on my ’16 Summer bucket list.  Stay tuned 🙂

http://www.cincinnatiartmuseum.org/  Get some art-inspiration!  This is something else I’d love to do.  The Divine Felines looks so cool!  I know the Egyptians really had a thing for cats.  

https://arkencounter.com/about-the-ark/ How big was Noah’s Ark? How did Noah fit all the animals on board? How did Noah feed and care for all the animals? How did Noah build the Ark?  All of your questions will be answered on Noah’s Ark!  I’ve been asking these questions for FOREVER!

http://www.lazerkraze.com/ Located in Northern Kentucky just minutes from the Cincinnati airport, this location combines the exhilarating competition of World Class Laser Tag with the intense physical fun of the Indoor Trampoline Park , huge Arcade with redemption and video games, and a snack bar with fresh made pizzas

http://www.skyzone.com/springdale/About-Us/What-is-Sky-Zone  Sky Zone is the world’s first indoor trampoline park. We’re the inventors of “fun fitness” and the makers of trampolines as far as the eye can see. We give you one of the greatest workouts ever combined with awesome, healthy fun. We’ve been voted the number one “out of the box” workout and the “best party ever.” Experience WOW – the weightlessness of bouncing, flipping and landing in a pit filled with 10,000 foam cubes.  uhhh, sounds like fun to me!!

Newport Gangster Tour

Julie-G-Photography-Gangster  Explore the streets where the mob made their millions, gamblers lost their lives, and ladies of the night earned their reputations. Join our gangster guides for a raucous, high energy presentation inside an old casino to explain the historic significance of Newport, and discover how this little town gave birth to the modern day gaming industry.

 

http://www.americansignmuseum.org/ “Signs and sign making are a fascinating reflection of America through the years. If your experience at the American Sign Museum causes you to be more aware of signs in your travels and of their value to businesses and communities, we’ve done our job.”  – Tod Swormstedt, Founder.   We went to Vegas back in March…one of our photoshoots was at a sign museum.  It was badass.

http://www.skywardadventures.com/  10 thrilling Zip Lines and 4 challenging Sky Bridges!  We went on a cruise and went ziplining.  Holy moly it’s really fun (the zip-lining, not the cruise)!

http://holidayautotheatre.com/  How about an old fashioned drive-in!  This is on the cheap side vs some of my other ideas above.  I tend to go for the expensive (not intentionally. lol)  There used to be a drive-in on Harrison Ave where the Veterans Park is (past Diamond Oaks).  

Here are some cheaper places to go.
