Urban Air offers lots of activities for the kids and big kids alike. Most of us don't have a trampoline in our backyards, but you can enjoy some jumping fun at Urban Air. There's also a sky rider, spin zone bumper cars, laser tag, ropes course and more. Tickets are $14.99 to $34.99 per person.

Once you’ve experienced the adventure park for yourself, you’ll see what we mean when we say we’re more than just a trampoline park. Young or old, tall or short, athlete or armchair quarterback – our attractions will help you defy gravity. Test your skills in the Warrior Obstacle Course, compete with friends, or practice your own tricks freestyle. No matter how you choose to play, you can take it to the next level at Urban Air.

2. Spa 505

If jumping around and getting physical aren't your idea of "fun," you can relax and unwind while the kids do the fun stuff. Or maybe make it part of a date night or girls' weekend. I had a wonderful massage at Spa 505 this weekend. I chose the deep tissue massage for 30-minutes. It cost $45. They have other options like Swedish or even a foot massage.

3. 5 Wits

I've never been, but it almost sounds like if a "Choose Your Own Adventure" book and an escape room had a baby. You can enjoy 5 Wits with one other person or a group of up to 12. Its FAQs page says each adventure takes about 35-minutes on average. It's $29 per person, plus tax. Or, if you have a group of 8 to 12 people, you can pay around $200.

5 Wits Buffalo is a 15,000 square foot entertainment venue housing three of the 5 Wits adventures: Deep Space, Drago’s Castle, and Tomb. Each attraction is a real life, hands-on adventure story that places your team in the lead role. Along the way, you’ll encounter collaborative games and challenges, and how you perform will change the course of the story – failure IS an option!
