Arcades of the future will provide gamers with virtual-reality helmets that can flawlessly re-create intense sensory experiences such as chin-strap chafing and top-heaviness. In the meantime, keep it real with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a $25 game card to All Play Des Moines, located one block south of the Wells Fargo Arena downtown.
Fun lovers frequent All Play Des Moines for its mix of popular games and novel attractions. Game cards can be used on a long list of games (listed here) from all-time classics such as air hockey and skee ball to new-fangled favorites such as Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero, and NASCAR Racing. Step inside Iowa's only laser maze, a light-beam labyrinth where players can indulge spy-mission fantasies ($3), or take the vertical aptitude exam that is the climbing wall ($3). Though food and drinks are not covered by today's deal, overzealous mole-whackers can replenish their strength filling up on pizza, burgers, and more inside Fanatics, a full bar and grill that shares the floor with All Play.
