Mini golf’s popularity has naturally led to a host of miniaturized copycats, including toeball and nano-marbles, which is played inside a particle accelerator. Engage in the most timeless shrunken sport with today's Groupon: for $13, you get two attraction combo passes and two ice-cream cones at Chuckster's in Vestal (a $26 value). Combo passes are valid for two of Chuckster's four attractions: mini golf, climbing wall, jumpsters, or aeroball.
Chuckster's 18-hole course casts balls along the humps and twists of elongated greens and optional watery passages, earning it the honor of hosting the 2010 National Miniature Golf championship, while three other entertainment options encourage climbing, bouncing, and twirling. Chuckster's rock-climbing wall grants geology-enthusiasts a 27-foot ascent, while jumpsters places guests in a bouncy harness to catapult, twirl, flip, and practice future moon landings. Aeroball pits gamers against each other as they bounce on a trampoline to make hoops, combining the hand-eye coordination of basketball with the restlessness of kangaroos in elevators. Delicious ice-cream cones await all golfers, climbers, and aeroballers after they finish putting their final hole or tearfully reuniting with gravity, and Chuckster’s also hosts live music every Thursday evening starting at 7 p.m.
