Although family reunions can provide valuable bonding time, overly competitive sack races often drive cousins to ingest dangerous levels of performance-enhancing potato salad. Safely reunite with nuclear relations with today's Groupon: for $10, you get four rounds of mini golf and 15 arcade tokens at Ben & Ari’s in Fishers (up to a $23.75 value).
Voted one of the top-five spots for family fun in Indy by CityVoters in 2010, Ben & Ari’s is a magnet for fun-seeking families and friends of all ages, boasting a menagerie of indoor and outdoor games and mouth-watering snacks. Test steady-handed mettle with games of mini golf on two well-manicured outdoor courses, refreshingly free of chipped nails and unsightly cuticles (up to a $5 value). Miniature club-wielders can enjoy a solitary outing by playing each of the courses twice or invite along three friends to partake in the golf adventure, as the four rounds of mini golf man be divvied up amongst multiple players. Those with fresh-air allergies can find healthy fun indoors at the arcade, using 15 tokens toward a plethora of thrilling games, such as racing on wave-runners or filing taxes for a nonprofit improv troupe (a $3.75 value).
Although not included in today's Groupon, avid gamers can refuel kinetic energy levels by visiting the café, home to tasty treats such as the meat-lovers pizza ($5.95 for a 7" small), hot dogs ($1.75 each), and soothing grilled-cheese sandwiches ($1.75 each). Cure common maladies such as cabin fever and boredom-induced pneumonia by stopping by during one of the spring breaks or summer vacations that coincide with good golfing weather and the sun’s return to the solar system.
Ben and Ari's
Ben and Ari's accommodates competitors of all levels with a full arcade and pizza kitchen flanked by two 18-hole miniature-golf courses. Both courses mimic the terrain of their larger long-game counterparts, but eschew the giant windmills in favor of dips, bends, and wandering streams that swallow wayward golf balls. The fairways also wind around the centerpiece with bands which trickles in the background during summer festivals and fundraisers.
