Saturday activities in Lewis Center
Find a way to spend your day in and around the Columbus area!
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Everyone knows Columbus is full of fun things to do, and one of the pros of the Lewis Center area is its close proximity to the capital. As you shop for houses, consider taking a few hours out of your weekend to participate in one of these popular activities, all of which are kid friendly!
SkyZone Trampoline Park
SkyZone Trampoline Park boasts plenty of activities for people of all ages. A popular chain often used for birthday parties and group get-togethers, the Columbus location offers some heart-pumping attractions: a freestyle jump, a dodgeball arena and a “Foam Zone” where visitors can jump into a massive pit filled with foam. Other special programs feature “Toddler Time” where younger children can safely play with others their own size, along with a “Skyfit” exercise class. The workout combines common gym moves and trampoline jumps--consider replacing your usual yoga or morning jog with this class!
Like SkyZone, LazerKraze in Lewis Center offers fun for all ages and is a great activity for your group in the Columbus area. The arena features a futuristic theme, with visitors saying the laser center made them feel like they were “transported into a video game.” Individuals can purchase a single “mission” or game for as low as $8, making for a cheap afternoon excursion. The facility also offers an inflatables room where kids can jump and race in mazes, along with wait in line to duel in the inflatable wrestling arena. Lastly, a complete arcade offers a mix of both classic and modern games, where you can earn winning tickets to cash in for prizes.
Columbus Zoo & Aquarium
The Columbus Zoo & Aquarium is perhaps one of the most well-known attractions of the capital city, as made popular by longtime director Jack Hanna. Located near Powell, Ohio--just a short thirteen-minute drive from Lewis Center --the zoo houses thousands of animals, ranging from the African Gray Parrot to the Zebra Shark. Tickets can be purchased in advance, and be sure to look out for special events such as Boo at the Zoo and Christmas lights if you are visiting around the holidays! Finally, if you care to trek farther out, consider making reservations to drive through The Wilds, where animals roam free in protected land.
Along with the animals at the zoo and The Wilds, the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium offers a fully-functioning water park known as Zoombezi Bay. During the hot summer months of June, July and August, consider getting tickets to cool off in attractions such as the Baboon Lagoon and Croctail Creek. Like many parks, Zoombezi Bay offers both crazy rides such as the Cyclone water slide and a calm kids corner. Season passes can be purchased for both the zoo and Zoombezi Bay if you plan on visiting often!
Center of Science and Industry
If the weather is cold or rainy, you should think about visiting Columbus’s other main attraction COSI, or the Center of Science and Industry. A science museum and a research center, visitors can explore all of the major exhibit areas: Ocean, Energy Explorers, Space, Progress, Gadgets, Life and the Dinosaur Gallery. Special exhibits often include special shows in the Planetarium, along with events such as Family Fridays and COSI After Dark. Open most days from 10 am to 7 am, COSI is a great day trip to learn something new.
