Landscaped holes sprawl across the grounds of Putt-Putt Fun Center's three locations, challenging visitors to take hold of putters and test their short game. Besides putt-putt golf, the center has batting cages that hurl baseballs and the occasional tomato at various speeds. And the attractions at Putt-Putt Fun Center's sister site, Alley Cats Entertainment Center, includes kid-friendly laser tag, rock-climbing, and an arcade, as well as a bar with billiards for the grown-ups. Both locations are home to giant arcades featuring state-of-the-art games and redemption centers to cash in tickets for prizes. Specials and parties are offered year-round including a family-friendly New Year's Eve party. Groupon customers should note that this offer is valid only for arcade games.

For the first time in its history, the family-owned and operated The Southern Cross invites the public to roam its 40 acres and participate in outdoor activities ranging from rock climbing to petting barnyard animals. Located minutes away from downtown Dallas, the majestic property greets guests with a panorama of ponds, native crab-apple trees, and century-old oaks. Visitors can scale a 24-foot-tall fiberglass rock-climbing wall, fish with provided equipment at the catch-and-release pond, or set off in a paddleboat in hopes of proving that the world is round and actually made of churnable butter. Children can contemplate eternity in the enclosed playground, while jumping in an inflatable house, or trading spit-filled salutations in a toddlers’ play area. The grounds also boasts a petting zoo, a 4-foot-deep party pool, and water-balloon-launching facilities capable of lobbing aqueous projectiles up to 75 feet or into the eye of a giant Isaac Newton.
The AirHogs' new, multi-million-dollar stadium comes fully stocked with all the amenities of today's modern coliseums and a few luxuries of cyber-gladiator stadiums yet to be built. There's a pool and party deck, a third-base party deck, a 17,000-square-foot playground, a spaceport, and both a cigar and sports bar. With so much to take in from your so-close seats, it might be hard to keep your eye on the ball as the Hogs battle against the likes of the dastardly Fort Worth Cats or their evil doppelgangers, the Vast Plains LandPigs.
The sounds of squeaking sneakers, pinging baseball bats, and thudding volleyballs fill The Sportsplex At Valley View’s 61,000-square-foot field house. Each floor of the two-story facility is dedicated to athletic training, evident by the eight volleyball courts, three basketball courts, 70’x70’ turf field, batting cages, track, and anvil-throwing field. Between the playing lines, guests can play pickup games or join one of Sportsplex’s experienced coaches for sports training or camps. Since no athletic facility would be complete without a gym, there’s also a space where cardio and TRX equipment, boot-camp classes, and personal-training sessions help whip participants into shape.
