Staten Island FunPark bills itself as the only facility within the New York City limits to offer all of the big three interactive amusements: go-karts, mini golf, and batting cages. Open daily in the summertime—with operating hours stretching to 11 p.m. on balmy Friday and Saturday nights—the park is an ideal spot for a wholesome date or fun-filled outing for the family.
- Race around a twisting and turning track in a brightly colored go-kart. Two-seaters are available for adults to chauffeur a young passenger who's not tall enough to drive on their own.
- Shoot for a hole in one on the verdant mini-golf course, where water hazards and irregularly shaped greens add to the kid-friendly challenge.
- Swing for the fences in batting cages equipped with pitching machines calibrated for baseballs, softballs, and different speeds.
- Take a snack break at the concessions stand, which stocks soft drinks, candy, Italian ice, and hot dogs.
