Laser Quest's mazelike, multi-level arena lets up to 39 players weave through the clouded fog with the grace of a skydiving basket-maker—taking cover behind barriers, swooping around corners, and raining beam-bolts down from the upper decks. Players can compete either as friendly teams or as lone wolves. Once they are surrounded by intense crossfire rarely seen outside of stormtrooper raves, players must use strategy, stamina, and well-timed hand-mirror shields to defeat the opposition.
Harmony Bowl caters to ten-pin proclivities with fully kitted-out alleys. Today's deal can be redeemed for solo strike practice, shared among a group of up to 10 friends, or used to calm one terrified, time-travelling caveman with a familiar form of recreation. The option of bumper-equipped lanes allows gutter-ball-prone players to compete against more seasoned opponents. Though not included in this Groupon, hungry bowlers can avail themselves of the on-site snack bar and lounge, wetting mouths left dry from valiantly trying to blow over pins.
The highest suspension bridge in America straddles the Royal Gorge as patrons gaze out across sweeping vistas from an aerial tramway, a steep railway, and a Skycoaster ride. Jaws drop on the bridge, a National Register of Historic Places structure that dangles above millions of years' worth of rock layers to delight amateur geologists like a volcano full of candy. Guests cruise 1,178 feet above the canyon base during the aerial tram ride and learn about the Native Americans who hunted and camped in the region. Granite walls tower above the incline railway, a conveyance built in 1931 that carries the adventurous on a 45-degree trip to the bottom of the canyon, where visitors feel cool river spray without insulting a trout. The one-hour terrain trail ride carries riders into Royal Gorge country on mule back to ogle mountain-range panoramas, and the Royal Rush Skycoaster plunges gleefully screaming guests in free fall at up to 50 miles per hour before dangling them over the canyon's lip. Park-goers romp through a variety of other attractions, including the plaza theater, a historical display, and a wildlife park.
