In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in go-karts and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with high-speed car chases and malevolent windmills. Give young ones the gift of preparedness with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get one Triple the Fun pass at All Fun Recreation Park (a $20 value). The pass includes:
All Fun Recreation Park multiplies park-goers’ joy-fueled adrenalin rushes with Triple the Fun passes. Pavement-peelers 57 inches and taller zoom around a 1,400-foot road course sporting an over- and underpass; drivers seeking a more leisurely ride that won’t ruin their freshly teased beehive can cruise around the smaller oval track (double karts available for parents and children 3–9 years old at no extra charge). After indulging dreams of being tiny enough to ride in a Hot Wheels car, 18 holes of mini golf take putters around the world by incorporating miniaturized iconic structures such as the Golden Gate Bridge and the Eiffel Tower. Eight batting cages then hurl pitches at 40, 60, and 75 mph to help hone baseball and softball swings, or reinforce survival skills in giant hail storms.
Triple the Fun passes are valid for the entire 2012 season, starting when the park opens for spring in March. During the winter, passes fit neatly into gift stockings, as well as into glove boxes to keep car registrations company. Though not included with today’s deal, buyers can check out All Fun’s other recreational accoutrements, including Mr. Tubbs Ice Cream Parlor & Family Fun Zone and RV park.
All Fun Recreation Park
After a trek down the Panama Canal, visitors stop for a brief sojourn under the Matterhorn before journeying on to the Eiffel Tower. This trip around the world comes courtesy of All Fun Recreation Park's miniature-golf course, whose 18 globally themed greens are littered with water traps and austerely dressed customs officials. Elsewhere, eight cages hurtle baseballs and softballs toward batters at 40–75 mph, and drivers accelerate across a 1,400-foot go-kart track's over and under bridge or hug the turns of a smaller oval track designed for parents and youngsters.
For more racing action, patrons can head over to Western Speedway each Saturday night in May–September for stock-car competitions on an oval track or drag strip. Westshore Motocross rents entry-level dirt bikes to riding and racing novices, and 75 RV and tenting sites give guests opportunities to yodel freely in nature. Guests can also explore the Swap & Shop each Sunday, where vendors dispense copious household goods and collectibles.
