Finally have a night off but can't think of anything to do? If movies make you yawn, the theater leaves you comatose and nightclubs give you the heebie-jeebies, you do have another option. If you live in or near Seattle, Las Vegas or Ontario, California, head to the nearest GameWorks, which lets the kid in you go crazy with more than 250 high-tech games and videos.
Test your driving skills at white-knuckle speeds in the Indy 500 Formula video simulator or take the plunge on a virtual water scooter. Then race over to the classic video arcade for a go at PacMan or Missile Command. For the decidedly low-tech, there are also games like billiards, foosball and air hockey. And the Las Vegas location features the world's tallest free-standing rock-climbing structure. How's that for a night on the town?
Each GameWorks also boasts restaurants and bars--the Seattle location even has its own brewpub. The brainchild of a joint partnership between DreamWorks SKG, Sega Enterprises and Universal Studios, GameWorks could become the new "nightclub" of the '90s. If you don't live near an existing GameWorks, don't worry. New locations will be sprouting up soon in Dallas; Tempe, Arizona; and São Paulo, Brazil.
