    Water ball fights. 3D maze races. Pool Surface Running. Ender's Game Laser Tag.

    There's a game in a novel I read that's basically low G paddleball, but bounced off the floor to lift yourself. First one to touch the ground loses.

    Highland Games but with excessively big/heavy pieces of equipment to toss around.
    With sufficient thrust, water towers fly just fine.

    That's already the design of Highland Games. Big Don had a good story about his attempt to toss the caber, though I can't remember if he told it here.

    Yesterday, we went to a park I hadn't been to before. It was called Avonlea Park, which already set my L. M. Montgomery fan senses tingling--and then I discovered it was on Ingleside Road. Avonlea is the town Green Gables was in; when Anne and Gilbert married, they ended up buying a house that they called Ingleside.
