Escape adult world woes and trek back to an era of popsicles, Pogs, and imaginary friends made out of variegated maize ears with today’s Groupon. For $9, you get all-day admission to Austin’s Park (an $18.50 value for anyone 44" or taller). Children and retired Christmas elves 40" to 43" are only $7.95, and those under 40" get in free. Austin’s Park is located right off exit 248 on I-35 in Pflugerville.
Modestly possessing and in no way boasting 55,000 square feet of indoor attractions and 22 acres of outdoor entertainment, Austin's Park has endless amusement options, especially if you and a bunch of meddlesome kids stay inside the park after it closes to investigate the case of the haunted funhouse. While inside the park, zap your friends with a rousing, hair-removing round of laser tag, come down with a case of incurable Nintendo thumb in the video arcade, or scale simulated peaks on the rock-climbing wall. Al fresco entertainment includes bumper boats, batting cages, go-karts, and oversized teacups designed to spin small ones into orbital-escape velocity. To stay energized between montages of merriment, you and your clan can carbo-load at the all-you-can-eat pasta, salad, and pizza buffet.
Everyone can buy up to eight Groupons to Austin's Park, so round up all the rug rats you know or accidentally caught with the vacuum cleaner and celebrate the next birthday party, post-game baseball victory, or commencement of manhunting season. Austin's Park is open Sunday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. These hours are subject to change, so please check the website before you go to the park.
Batting cages and redemption games are not included in the cost of this Groupon.
Citysearchers give the amusement emporium four stars:
- …it was fun acting like a kid again. The go carts and laser tag are great and you can ride as many times as you want. The food was included in the package and the beer is ice cold. – lowcostenergy
- We went with some friends and their kids this Saturday and had a blast! The place is huge and there were plenty of things to keep everyone busy all day. – austnchrssy
