Adventure Quest Laser Tag feeds fun glands in a futuristic facility that houses a 6,000-square-foot, multi-level Mayan-ruin laser-tag arena that provides ample obstacles to duck and dive behind while avoiding the crosshairs of fellow competitors' phasers. You can also choose a session of bumper cars, in which children learn the tenets of seatbelt safety and the lifelong importance of owning a superabundant bumper, or cosmic golf, with nine holes of ancient obstacles illuminated by black light. Adventure Quest Laser Tag provides a customizable day of family fun, supplanting wrestling sessions for the remote control, greased-up chicken-chasing races, and greased-up wrestling sessions against remote-hoarding chickens.

Glee-seekers can present their Groupon at the admission ticket booth before spinning on the Tilt-A-Whirl, knocking bumper cars, or gliding down the 40-foot fun slide in addition to enjoying more than 10 other timeless amusement-park rides. Hop on the Ferris wheel for sky-skimming panoramic views, or climb aboard the miniature train for a leisurely tour through picturesque City Park. Stop by the historic wooden carousel to ride on the well-known “flying horses” and reminisce about simpler times when animals were all carved from gilded logs before coming to life. Next to the amusement park, smaller children can wander in wonder around Storyland, which brims with more than 25 larger-than-life playground pieces inspired by well-known children's stories and rhymes. Little ones and non-Lilliputian folk alike can climb aboard Captain Hook’s pirate ship, step into the mouth of Pinocchio’s whale, or dash up Jack and Jill’s hill without losing costly crowns.
