Since the popularization of the laser handshake, the laser hug, and laser diplomacy, laser warfare has ended and glow-in-the-dark space terrain has been recognized as an independent state. Eradicate holdout antinationalists with this Groupon: for $10, you get one day of unlimited bumper-car rides and laser-tag games at Happy Days Family Fun (a $20 value).
The sounds of good-natured score settling drift from a laser-tag arena and out across Happy Days Family Fun’s labyrinthine concourse, which hints at an endless trove of stories with vintage accents and décor. With unlimited admission, patrons outfit themselves for laser-tag battles with chest-mounted sensors and illuminated blasters. Inflatable floors and walls simulate a low-gravity atmosphere, and a series of obstacles and bunkers provides ample places to hide while setting traps or trying to remember to recite from Braveheart. At the helm of a rubber-reinforced hot rod, bumper-car drivers collide with one another in a glittery blur of shimmering backdrops and vehicles. Though not included in this Groupon, a full arcade at Happy Days Family Fun enables patrons to exchange tickets for prizes or to place tickets in a savings account to pay for skee-ball college.
Happy Days Family Fun
At Happy Days Family Fun, a cautious driver is the biggest maniac on the road. Seated behind the wheels of sparkly bumper cars—rather than the vintage pedal fire trucks used for everyday commutes—motorists crash into each other in a huge indoor space bordered with tinsel curtains shimmering under an overhead disco ball. Players also collide with cushioned pillars during laser-tag matches in a galactic-themed arena, housed behind a 3-D spaceship hovering over the entryway. Fender benders are discouraged, however, at the go-kart track, where patrons speed to the finish line under the influence of cotton-candy sugar highs. In the arcade, skee-balls land in target rings, triggering streams of tickets exchangeable for a variety of toys at the prize counter.
