Hey Sports Fans!

Got a kid into WWE? (In teen-speak, that's short for World Wrestling Entertainment.) Then you must have lunch at the WWE New York restaurant. You can eat a so-so meal (the food's not really the thing) and watch videos of past bouts. Live events with appearances by real-life wrestlers (but no actual wrestling) take place regularly. Kids will beg you to stop at the giant gift shop filled with WWE regalia. (Warning: You must pass through the gift shop to get in and out of the restaurant.)
Sports fans will also want to check out ESPN Zone, which shows live events on a big screen and TVs positioned everywhere (even in the bathroom). You can get a good burger here. But the real attraction is the top floor, which is filled with sports-oriented virtual reality games and games of skill. Play basketball, go parachuting (on a simulator), or scale a real rock-climbing wall. Note: You don't have to eat at the restaurant to visit the game room.
