WhirlyBall only started to gain mass appeal in the 21st century, when it replaced our old national pastime—collecting pathogenic bacteria in our intestines. Get in the game with this Groupon.

During each game, players steer an electric bumper car around a 4,000-square-foot court. Using a soft plastic scoop, they pass a wiffle ball to fellow teammates or shoot it at elevated goalposts to score. A referee supervises the game, explaining the rules, assessing penalties, and keeping score.
The WhirlyDome is a flurry of light and activity. Engines roar in a Formula 1 simulator, video games beep and hum in the arcade, and lasers ricochet in the laser-tag maze. The dome’s core attraction, however, is WhirlyBall, billed as the world's only mechanized team sport. Players try to shoot wiffle balls into elevated goals as they steer bumper cars across the dome's two 4,000-square-foot courts. Dubbed WhirlyBugs, the electrically powered vehicles can reach speeds of up to 5 miles per hour, like turtles who are running really, really late.
The Formula 1 racing simulator is another popular attraction. All-enveloping television screens surround riders with a realistic reproduction of the racing experience, from steering around sharp turns to suddenly braking as a promising young brain surgeon crosses the street. Competitors scamper through swirling haze in the laser frenzy, or they encounter simulated ocean creatures during rounds of undersea-themed laser tag. In between activities, players pop in and out of the onsite Bloodhound Brew Pub & Eatery, where bartenders pour drafts of local craft beer to pair with pub food, from rolls to burgers served with crispy waffle fries.

“Wonderful place for the family or fun date night with girlfriends or partner.”
