Studies show that high levels of excess energy in children can lead to uncontrollable demands for Erlenmeyer flasks and overly aggressive hopscotching. Today's Groupon provides a safe, fun-filled space to deplete vivacity reserves. For $8, you get an adventure pack of six activities and 12 tokens at the Bayou Adventure Entertainment Center attached to Joe Dumars’ Fieldhouse in Shelby Township (a $20 value).
The 30,000-square-foot Bayou Adventure Entertainment Center boasts a bevy of swamp-themed activities for aspiring adventurers of all ages. Navigate turbulent ponds and real waterfalls during 18 holes of Bayou miniature golf, or dodge laser-wielding reptiles in the Gator Tag arena. Altitude-hungry thrill-seekers can tackle the 26-foot Cajun Cliffs climbing wall, the two-level ropes course, or the flip-friendly bungee trampoline. When activity fatigue sets in, haul your tokens over to the Redemption Arcade, a thrilling skill center packed with more than 60 challenging games. Visitors must take care not to wake Terwiliger, the18-foot-tall animatronic troll. This bayou-loving bridge guardian has been known to challenge unsuspecting patrons to hand-to-hand skee-ball games and philosophy debates.
Joe Dumars Fieldhouse
Founded in 1994 as a community-based recreation center, Joe Dumars Fieldhouse is a 100,000-square-foot facility that houses sports leagues and camps in addition to an arcade-equipped entertainment center and an indoor/outdoor restaurant. Dumars' value of sportsmanship lives on through league play and pickup games on one of nine basketball courts and in two full-sized hockey arenas. Camps and clinics provide activity-based instruction to little ones, and the entertainment center's mini-golf and mini-bowling areas host small-scale enjoyment without enforcing miniature-shoe rentals. After rigorous activity, guests can head to Joe's Southern Grill, an arena-themed eatery with tables made from the Pistons' NBA-championship basketball court and a kitchen supervised by head chef Bill Laimbeer.
