Whether painting pottery or fusing together bits of glass, students at Paint'n Parrot leave the studio with a keepsake of their own design. With tons of ceramic pieces to choose from, artists can daub color onto plates, cups, and figurines during pottery-painting sessions tailored for kids or adults. Or they can create the surfaces themselves during fused-glass classes, which enable students to conjoin colorful slabs of glass into decorative dishes and Christmas-tree ornaments.
Hot Wheels Skate Center gives speed aficionados all the room they need to jump, roll, and race around the rink with ease. Once outfitted with a pair of freewheeling skater shoes, head to the gleaming 20,400-square-foot hardwood arena to showcase your award-winning roller-funk routine. Although this Groupon includes regular skate rental ($2), speed skates ($4) and inline hockey skates ($4) are also available, allowing skaters to glide on the foundation of their choosing to the boogey-friendly beats of top 40 tunes. To cool down after a sweaty roller-derby match or calm nerves frazzled by skating against the flow, visit Hot Wheels' snack bar and select from a stockpile of soft drinks, pizza, hot dogs, candy bars, and other stomach-friendly fare. Check out the skating schedule for a list of convenient public skate sessions ($5–$7).
