Boredom is like a poltergeist: you can't see it, but if left ignored, it will rummage through cupboards and break all of the fiestaware. Overcome the crushing grip of ennui with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a three-hour unlimited attraction pass (a $24.95 value) to Adventure Park USA in New Market, MD, about 60 miles north of Washington DC. This Groupon is not valid on weekdays after September 5, 2011.
At Adventure Park USA, visitors amble, shriek, and laugh through a sprawling 17.5 acres replete with Old West–themed rides and attractions. Thrill-seekers of all ages can hunt down cyborg bandits during a round of laser tag, and little ones can slither, slide, and spring through the plush, four-level Prospector Playground. The steel Wildcat rollycoaster whips passengers around in an intertwining figure-eight design, rattling bones and eliciting screams of joy akin to Steven Tyler on Christmas morning.
Though Adventure Park USA offers a Saturday special, this Groupon is valid for the entire weekend and still offers the best deal available.
Adventure Park USA
At Adventure Park USA, visitors amble, shriek, and laugh through a sprawling 17.5 acres replete with Old West–themed rides and attractions such as the Wildcat roller coaster, which dips and curves around a track in order to elicit screams of joy. Outdoor diversions such as bumper boats and go-karts stoke competitive fires, and a collection of little tykes rides invite pintsize riders to spin in teacups or gallop on carousel horseback. Open year-round, a 22,000-square-foot indoor frontier playzone thumbs its nose at inclement weather with laser tag, an arcade, Spin Zone bumper cars, the Gold Rush playground, a ropes course, and a climbing wall. Owner Larry Stottlemeyer continues to expand this already extensive list of family-friendly diversions.
