The family is the basic unit of society—yet statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the extra Arch Deluxe you've been saving for all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $13, you get a one-day Karts Plus pass to Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park in Olmsted Falls (a $25.99 value).
During the sunny outdoor season, beginning on April 22, Swings-N-Things hosts active outdoor attractions including mini golf, batting cages, bumper boats, and go-karts, which let road warriors drive low and fast without real-road hindrances such as traffic lights, speed limits, and banana peels.
During the colder months, the indoor attractions at Swings-N-Things entertain and delight families who wish to escape the chilly wetness of winter-spring. Two floors of arcade games boast pixilated challenges, which–when bested–spit out tickets that can be exchanged for a bevy of prizes. Video gamers can try the Ground Zero Laser Shoot Out, wielding virtual lasers to vaporize and collect holographic crystals or enjoy real-life plastic tubing adventures at the Kids Korner, a sinuous indoor playing field with slides, climbing, and more.

Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park
Happy shouts float across Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park, whipping out of the mouths of drivers racing around go-kart tracks and captains ricocheting off one another in bumper boats. The satisfying clunk of colorful spheres falling into holes on the mini-golf course perks up ears in the sprawling complex of indoor and outdoor attractions. Go-kart drivers whiten their knuckles behind the wheel of 9-horsepower Honda engines, tearing through a quarter mile of twists and turns on the Grand Prix track as if it were a high-school principal’s lawn. Alternatively, patrons frolic across the park’s two outdoor mini-golf courses before practicing their aim in a laser shootout game, and children ages 10 and younger scramble their socked feet over slides and rides inside the Kids Korner indoor play area. Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park is easily accessible from the area's major highways.
