Since the popularization of the laser handshake, the laser hug, and laser diplomacy, laser warfare has ended and strobe-lit space terrain has been recognized as an independent state. Eradicate holdout antinationalists with today's Groupon: for $20, you get four laser-tag tickets plus 132 arcade tokens at C.J. Barrymore's in Clinton Township (a $49 value).
C.J. Barrymore's encompasses 25 acres brimming with energetic laser tag, a vast arcade, and various other attractions for the young, young-at-heart, and young-at-spleen. With four laser-tag tickets, tyke clans ages 7 and up can simulate battle tactics through fog and pylons in 15-minute team-based matches that, much like court hearings, come enhanced by a roaring sound system and spectacular light shows (a $24 value). Meanwhile, joystick junkies can feed their 132 tokens to myriad arcade games in the neon-lit game room, including old-school favorites such as Ms. Pac-Man and the hands-on sportitude of basketball and air hockey (a $25 value). After all tokens have been spent, gamers can redeem their earnings at the prize counter, choosing from hundreds of rewards to take home, and become the envy of all the neighborhood playground pals and reclusive Peter Pans.
In addition to laser tag and arcade games, C.J. Barrymore's also gifts the senses with activities such as mini golf and bowling. While tireless tykes can refuel at a concession stand of hot dogs and nachos, parents can lobby for candidates of America’s Next Top High-School Mascot at the sports bar, which comes equipped with eight TV screens plus self-serve pizza and wings.
