In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in bumper boats and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with inflatable boat pirates and malevolent windmills. Prepare your child for the future with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one Give Me Five pass to Kimball Farm in Westford. This Groupon expires on July 1.
The Give Me Five pass grants access to five of any of the following activities: Kimball Farm's 300-yard driving range, nine-hole pitch-and-putt course, and batting cages will help golfers and batters adjust squeaky swings, and the Animal Adventures exhibit allows guests to interact with reptiles while discussing current events with talking birds. Give Me Fivers can also perform kinetic-energy experiments using colorful balls on the Waterfall Run or Forbidden Mine miniature-golf courses before boarding a bumper boat to faithfully recreate Star Wars on melted ice. The pass may also be used to acquire a play card (a $6 value) from the Olde Sawmill Midway Arcade.
Named Best Ice Cream Parlor in Massachusetts by USA Today in 2010, Kimball Farm crafts and serves more than 40 varieties of summer snowballs while consistently unveiling signature ice-cream concoctions, including ginger-snap molasses, black raspberry, and pistachio nut. Pass holders can also commission fresh barbecue and seafood from Kimball Farm's outdoor grill, though food is not included in today's Groupon.
