Go-karts allow people to experience the thrill of driving without having to hear radio ads for pungent soaps or look at four empty seats that remind them of the time someone stole their family of mannequins. Keep thrills pure with today's Groupon: for $6, you get two Thunder Road go-kart rides at Camelot Park (a $13.50 value).
At Camelot Park, families and friends careen around a racetrack in go-karts, hone accuracy at batting cages, and strive for below-par perfection on an 18-hole mini-golf course. Racers with at least 56 inches' worth of height can strap into go-karts for adrenaline-pumping competition, flooring the gas along the track's long stretches and squinting at road signs around wide curves to avoid missing the proper exit. Passengers 40"–56" tall ($2 extra per ride) experience the exhilaration alongside drivers 18 or older with driver's licenses.
Roars, growls, and clanking metal clamors from behind the castle walls. This is Camelot Park, where families can roar around curvy courses in growling go-karts and smack baseballs with aluminum bats at the batting cages. After chasing checkered flags and practicing their swings for the zombie apocalypse, guests take it down a notch to putt around waterfalls, a pink castle, and a painted pagoda on the 18-hole mini-golf course. Afterward, guests can play arcade and redemption games inside or fire streams of water at each other from aboard bumper boats. Party packages combine these attractions but throw in pizza and a personal party host.
