Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During four fun-filled pop-in visits ($7 per child), children can leap around these gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like legless snakes through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate controlled and cleanly maintained according to rigorous guidelines by well-trained staff. Parents bounce for free during family jump time, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow their neighbor’s kid or just win one by collecting enough cereal-box tops. Alternatively, this Groupon can be used toward a private party package, which gets you and yours privileged access to the 12,500-square-foot facility and its equipment, which is designed to automatically deflate at the approach of anyone not involved in your party.

Laser Legend's black-lit arena surrounds players in a scene that seems straight out of a science-fiction movie. Glowing planets and stars backdrop the 5,000-square-foot space, where fog creeps out from behind neon-blue walls and 14 robots guard bases. Up to eight teams fire lasers across two levels, competing during match types such as capture the flag or tickle the flag until it says uncle. The phosphorescent ambience also extends to the Glo Golf course, where alien forests and caves surround golfers as they line up putts. The course employs a multi-hole system that allows Laser Legend’s intergalactic greenskeepers to change the cup locations each week. Elsewhere, more than 40 games, such as Sno Cross, Dirty Driving, Doodle Jump, and Juke-n-Box, create a symphony of electronic beeps in the arcade.

The aromas of fresh-baked breadsticks lure visitors into the onsite restaurant, Noble Roman's Pizza, where chefs fry chicken wings, assemble italian-beef subs, and slide pepperoni pizzas into the oven. This casual Italian cuisine also fuels stomachs within Laser Legend's party rooms, where guests can watch satellite TV and birthday kids eat a breadstick for every year they've had teeth.

Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $9.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (a $3.59 value).

At The Art Room Ltd. Co., there's a class to fit every budding artist. Kids can stretch their creative muscles while making paper puppets and masks with crayons and glue, or learning to paint self-portraits. Instructor-led parties for adults, on the other hand, may involve painting more grownup projects such as coasters or wine glasses. On Thursday and Friday nights, BYOB sessions throw wine into the mix, letting adults paint in a relaxed environment. And for those looking for more structured art instruction, weekly classes for both kids and adults focus on topics such as painting techniques and which paints are not edible.

Greek immigrant Louis Santikos founded his first movie theater in San Antonio in 1911, when silent moving pictures of train robberies and slapstick comedy were an exciting novelty. Today, the thriving regional theater empire continues the family tradition of dazzling audiences with attractions such as IMAX sensory journeys.

Santikos's expansive theaters house up to 19 screens of first-run cinematic entertainment at some locations. Equipped with popcorn and sodas, moviegoers can nervously munch and sip their way through every pulse-pounding car chase, tragic missed connection, or gripping montage of drying paint. Screenings in 3-D of select films are brought to life by the gloriously immersive illuminations of Xpand 3-D projectors.
