I’m suspicious of any activity that requires a signature on a liability waiver.
I’ve gone years, in fact, finding plenty of things to do that don’t require a waiver. I’m rethinking that. Northeast Ohio has had an indoor recreation boom recently, and the activities look like a lot of fun.
Trampolines, rope courses, climbing walls, indoor cycling. All are great winter-busting activities and don’t require layers of clothing and boots better than the ones I already own.
Here are a few places to try, either with some friends, alone (if you’re self-conscious) or with a grandkid or two.
