The Chiller Ice Rinks are owned and operated by JMAC, the majority owner of the NHL's Columbus Blue Jackets, ensuring constantly chilled surfaces and a bevy of creature comforts. Public ice skating allows gliders to practice toe loops, triple axels, or the skating scenes from Saving Private Ryan, and then change in public dressing rooms, spectate from the 1,000-person seating section or an enclosed second-story viewing area at the Lewis Center establishment.

Unobtrusive servers slip in during the show to deliver orders, and can be called on for more drinks or dessert with the push of a button. Guests can even sip margaritas or signature cocktails at the full bar before heading in to the theater. The family-friendly establishment also serves finger food for kiddies.

As for the entertainment, audiences get to enjoy all-digital presentations of first-run films any day of the week, plus Retro Cinema every Wednesday morning at 11:30 a.m. as well as Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. Audiences also benefit from Movie Tavern's membership program.

With regular bowling rates ranging from $25 to $27 per hour, plus $3.95 for shoe rentals per person, a dedicated pin-pummeler could easily stretch this Groupon beyond its projected value.

Westerville Golf Center's lush driving range coddles golfers with first-rate facilities that landed it on Golf Range Magazine's 2011 Top 100 Ranges list. With the Birdie Frequent Hitter card in tow, golfers can whack, juggle, and comically trip over $36 worth of driving range balls while traversing 80 verdant grass slug-stations. A fleet of 40 covered tees, heated in winter, shelter stick swingers from summer sun and unseasonable chills, and loaner clubs are on hand for those still slicing the air with old mannequin legs. Ideal for sharing with a close friend or one of the staff's PGA instructors, orbs come in small ($5/40 balls), large ($7.50/75 balls), and jumbo ($13/175 balls) buckets.

Sunbury’s gleaming floors have been buzzing with the hollow thrum of spinning wooden wheels since it opened in 1965, with only occasional breaks to use the concession stand and play a few arcade games. Whether you subscribe to roller/in-line separatist ideals or embrace the skate solidarity movement, Sunbury Skate Club accepts all denominations under its mirror ball and offers $2.50 skate rentals for those who don't bring their own wheels. For even more rides to share among all the disco divas in your life, buy extras as gifts. Free skate is every Tuesday (6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.), Friday (7 p.m. to 10 p.m.), Saturday (11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.), and Sunday (1 p.m. to 3 p.m.).
