  • Thunder Road Family Fun Park
    Summer carnivals arrive once a year to brighten up a dull parking lot and transform it into a seven-day wonderland. But when the week is over, they take away the flashing lights and excitement and leave behind nothing but vagrant scraps of litter and shattered milk jugs. To combat that feeling of emptiness, each of the four Thunder Road Family Fun Parks features family entertainment the whole year through. At their Sioux Falls location, families and groups gathering for a work outing or birthday party eternally zip around oval go-kart tracks that are slick and polished to recreate cinematic stunt driving on a small scale. An 18-hole mini-golf course offers a glimpse of what the world would be like if the Vikings had invented golf instead of coercing the Scottish into inventing it. Euro bungee jumping, meanwhile, combines straps and trampolines to induce a weightless sensation and enable flips and jumps dripping with adrenaline. Classic family activities such as batting cages and bumper boats flank a Thunder Road original attraction: Human Foosball. Recent upgrades have included the addition of a Tilt-a-Whirl, Screaming Dragon roller coaster, and laser maze, where players are challenged to navigate their way through a field of laser beams without tripping the alarm.

  • Clark Golf Club
    The rolling grass greens at Clark Municipal Golf Course lead players through nine challenging holes stretched across nearly 3,000 yards. The course saves its biggest tests for the end of rounds with eighth and ninth holes that measure the longest distances, by far. The par 5 eighth is especially difficult, as it features a sharp dog leg and checks in at 490 yards. To keep spirits high before, during, and after rounds, the facility also has weekly specials, including ladies night on Tuesdays and guys night on Thursdays. The clubhouse, meanwhile, features a fully stocked bar and can be rented for private events to celebrate birthdays or when a new ball develops its first dimple.
