In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in bumper cars and playing arcade games are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with fender benders and mole infestations. Brush up their skills with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a $20 play card at the County Fair Fun Company in Brandon.
Guests at the County Fair Fun Company can bask in the glow of arcade games, bash into friends on bumper cars, or frolic through a host of other family-friendly attractions. More than 40 mechanical games of skill ($.30–$1.50/play) cajole merrymakers into trying their luck for strings of tickets, which can be used as currency at the huge prize wall or sold on the burgeoning used-paper black market. Put a lead foot to use during a collision-ridden spin in 360-degree bumper cars ($3/round), or let pintsize partiers loose in bouncy inflatables and multicolored tube tunnels ($3 for unlimited use). Alternately, older participants can hone their jump shot on a basketball court or show presumptuous cacti what’s what at a western-themed shooting gallery.
County Fair Fun Company
At County Fair Fun Company, kids excitedly tackle action-filled games and rides, then safely ricochet off the inflated surfaces of Technicolor bounce houses. A _Dora the Explorer_–themed inflatable packs slides, tropical trees, and huts into a cushy, educational wonderland, and inside a bounce castle, little ones can pretend they're inside one of King Arthur’s legendary bounce castles. Setting foot on solid ground, tykes make their way to the bumper-car arena, where circular vehicles offer easy steering, each crash eliciting shouts and laughter from drivers. Between bumper demolition derbies, children wander the labyrinthine tunnels and slides of County Fair's padded play dome, navigating tricky rolling platforms and shaky rope bridges to find a safe spot to exchange stock tips. Video games exercise hand-eye coordination for both kids and grownups, who can also lounge in County Fair's beer garden and sip on potent potables for an additional cost.
