The family is the basic unit of society—yet statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the extra Arch Deluxe you've been saving for all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $26, you get two unlimited-ride wristbands, two Water Wars games, and two face paintings at Como Town, located inside Como Park in St. Paul (up to a $52 value).
Como Town amusement park packs in a passel of family-friendly activities and more than 18 rides targeted at kids ages 2–12 and their parents. An unlimited-ride wristband grants adventure-seekers infinite trips on rides such as the Frog Hopper, which hoists six kids and one adult 18 feet above the ground, then lets them bounce gently back to ground level as kids try to catch flies with their tongues. Thrill-seekers can test their mettle against Drop Zone’s dizzy 36-foot free fall or take a zip around the whizzing Tilt-a-Whirl. Then, during two games of Water Wars, combatants can launch buckets of water balloons at strategically placed slots and holes in enemy fortresses, trying to drench their rivals and win aquatic battle glory. Finally, face painters decorate two visages with brightly colored designs such as a butterfly, smiley face, or favorite member of Parliament.
Though not included in today’s Groupon, Como Town also replenishes empty bellies with cotton candy, fresh-fruit smoothies, and other festival fare.
