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 (up to a $3.99 value).

Established in 1908, Lakeside Amusement Park maintains its turn-of-the-century charm while embracing modern amenities and attractions. An adrenaline-pumping drop tower and a slew of neon-hued, spinning rides contrast the classic joy of a wooden roller coaster, which rises from its perch near the lake.

The all-ages park also comprises Kiddies' Playland, a place where tots can get their fun fix on boats, animal-themed rides, and pint-sized motorcycles. The facility also accommodates large groups with on-site picnic grounds perfect for birthday parties or applesauce fights.

It was 1890 when the first people arrived at Elitch Gardens, then a zoological park. Those early Denver citizens would likely be taken aback by the park's current collection of thrill rides?including one that looks like the world's largest hula hoop balanced on its side. The Brain Drain is no hula hoop, however. It's a ride towering seven stories high, with back-to-back seats that allow its riders to stare into each other's eyes as they go upside-down in high-speed revolutions.

Elsewhere in the park, there are more adrenaline rushes to be had on the tracks of wooden and suspended roller coasters. Those who enjoy a slower pace would do well to visit the ferris wheel, children's rides, and an 83-year-old carousel whose horses don't even know what email is. There's also a water park with open and enclosed slides, some of which plunge from heights of up to 75 feet.
