Children and adults find plenty of merriment in the Putt Putt Fun Center's three 18-hole mini-golf courses and fleet of exciting arcade games. Patrons can go putter-to-putter in a round of 18-hole mini golf, ideal for family fun and teaching children to pity their elders by letting them win. A satchel’s worth of arcade tokens promises a good time in the game gallery, which boasts the ultimate test of skill at skee-ball machines. Gamers can then redeem their tickets in the prize center for stuffed animals, electronics, or the grand prize, a lecture about fiscal responsibility. Though not included in today's Groupon, the center also sates fun-fatigued appetites with a variety of treats and eats at its snack bar.
Prime Time Family Entertainment Center houses a fieldtrip's worth of funtivities under one boredom-busting roof. With a $20 game card in hand, players of all life stages can enjoy Prime Time's sullen-smashing attractions, including go-karts ($5 per race), bumper cars ($3 per ride), shuffleboard ($6 per hour), billiards ($6 per table), arcade games ($0.50+), kiddie carts ($3 per race), batting cages (12 balls for $1 or 1 hour for $30), NASCAR simulators ($5 per race), bowling ($2.25 per weekday game or $18.50 per lane for 1 hour on weekends, plus shoe rental), and more. Likewise, active folks can unleash light-beam justice inside the neon glowing laser-tag arena ($5 per round) or enjoy stationary speed with the X-D interactive theater ($5 per movie). For those seeking additional sibling bouts, the mini golf course ($5.50 per person) simulates real putting surfaces while incorporating ponds, creeks, and shimmering, round-ruining waterfalls.
Created by a crew of local cowhands 26 years ago, the Western Heritage Classic has mushroomed into a three-day event bringing together thousands of lasso-loving Texans. The ranch rodeo ticket gets you inside the dirt-covered coliseum at 8 p.m. Friday, when rival ranchers test their mettle in a series of original events—roping calves, riding broncos, milking wild cows, branding cattle, and more recent additions such as team penning and bovine speed texting. Saturday's ground pass applies only to non-ranch-rodeo events, including the chuck wagon cook-off and the fiddler contest, in which bow masters pound out the jams to get cowboy boots shuffling. Those attending both days can hear the weathered verses of cowboy poets, the pastoral works of western artists and artisans, and witness rancher Charlier Trayer’s cowdog demonstrations.
