Great-white sharks, silverback gorillas, and bengal tigers guard the nine holes of That Fun Place's phosphorescent mini-golf course. That’s where families tap neon golf balls through aquatic and jungle landscapes before kids holster putters to climb through the padded three-story playground. After slipping through tunnels and peering through portholes, groups reconvene at the bumper cars to slam into each other under more black lights. Meanwhile, in the laser-tag arena, kids and adults slink through rainforests and space ships to fire the same photons that render alien skin smooth and hairless.

Outside, carnival games and roller coasters envelop visitors in natural light, and children mine for gems and arrowheads at the wooden sluicing contraption. With a full-service pizza parlor on site and an arcade filled with more than 40 games, That Fun Place can also host birthday parties for up to 22 guests.

Beech Grove Bowl keeps white-bodied pins on edge with bowling lanes and a kitchen open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Available on every lane, bumpers provide pendulum-armed patrons and their orb-shaped counterparts a surefire way to knock down pins and evade gutters as effectively as arcade frogs dodge heavy highway traffic. Alley allies can also use this game pass for Beech Grove Bowl's weekly Rock 'n' Roll Bowl event, which showcases customer-controlled music, eye-enticing special lighting, and festive balls that launch commemorative T-shirts and glitter from their holes.

When drivers take to the track at Fastimes' Indoor Karting, they follow in the treads of professional racers such as Mario Andretti and Tony Stewart. Amateurs and visiting professionals alike race at up to 40 miles per hour on the 900-foot bi-level track, whose asphalt and epoxy-resin surface helps karts grip and make clean turns. Each of Fastimes' sleek Sodikarts is outfitted with roll bars and caution lights, which team up with seat belts and the facility's rentable helmets for optimum safety. Fastimes' onsite Italian deli, The Final Lap, bolsters drivers' strength with handmade pizzas and invites drivers to linger over beer and wine after the day's races are through.

For many years, the scariest thing about golf has been the Sansabelt pants. With today's Groupon, trade gentle golf claps for screams of putting panic: for $15, you get four rounds at Monster Mini Golf in Marietta, a $30 value. Come once by yourself and save the other three passes for when you have the hiccups, or bring three friends and see who has the strongest stomach for fun monster statues.

If you’re like most people, seeing another windmill boringly swooping its blades on a standard miniature golf course makes you secretly long for glow-in-the-dark zombies. Monster Mini Golf has heard those silent screams and created a fright-filled attraction perfect for couples, kids, adults with kids, and adults unafraid of sharing a fun evening with Dracula. Monster Mini Golf’s owners created most of the oversized monsters that stalk their greens and constitute the course’s obstacles. The creatures glow under ample black lights, and range in monstrosity from animated cuddliness to Bella-Lugosity. Kids of all ages are able to appreciate Monster Mini Golf's kitschy post-structuralist take on the play of difference between signifier and signified.

The links consist of 18 holes spread over 12,600 square feet, and the focus of the course is on challenging angles. Monster Mini golf offers just the right level of challenge to entertain both kids and adults. The Marietta branch opens its creaky doors from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday, noon to 10 p.m. Saturday, and noon to 8 p.m. Sunday. Check Monster Mini Golf's website for upcoming holiday hours.

Monster Mini Golf also offers themed party rooms, such as the Haunted Mansion; a quarter arcade; and traditional arcade challenges, including skee ball and glowing air hockey. Success at these monster-supervised games offers not only personal fulfilment, but also the thrill of having conquered death incarnate. Plus you win prizes. While playing, be sure to listen for Monster Mini Golf’s own in-house radio station, “W.I.R.D. (Weird Radio),” whose live, on-site DJ hands out prizes for goofy reasons on the links.

Escapades Family Fun Center offers a haven for familial delight where adults can kick back and release children ages 1–15 into the safe plastic jungles of kid-dom. A massive three-story play maze invites young mouse-interpreters to scurry through a series of twists and turns before exiting via slide. A sea of colorful orbs awaits in the ball pit, allowing future Olympians to perfect the plastic backstroke or float lazily as they sip invisible piña coladas. Toddlers will find miniaturized versions of both the maze and ball pit, designed for smaller-size thrill-seekers. While offspring frolic, adults can decompress in the Quiet Room and take advantage of free WiFi.
