Political scientists believe the spread of amusement parks to more countries will soon allow nations to settle border disputes via multilingual games of miniature golf. Help make global affairs more family-friendly with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a family package at Egg Harbor Fun Park (up to a $52 value). This package includes a game of miniature golf for four people and eight admissions to other park attractions. One admission is worth 16 arcade tokens. This Groupon does not include go karts.
Egg Harbor Fun Park houses a multitude of yawn-busting attractions, from the whimsical 18-hole miniature golf course to a paintball target range and trampoline basketball court. Families test their ball-tapping mettle on the roundabout greens of the golf course, where hidden tunnels and watery obstacles spell doom for all but the craftiest balls. Springy trampolines launch basketball players toward highlight-reel dunks on the Jump Shot course and young kids expel some of their endless energy in the outdoor Bounce Zone. Those seeking splashes and splatters take cover in the waterlogged trenches of the Water Wars course, or create minor avant-garde masterpieces at the paintball target range. Outdoor go-karts placate preteens anxious for their drivers’ licenses and a 3,000-square-foot arcade promises shelter for limited-edition quarters featuring American heroes Big Bird and Ringo Starr.
A seasonal schedule running from May to October ensures abundant respite from the summer doldrums. Egg Harbor Fun Park also boasts a snack bar with made-to-order pizza and hand-dipped Chocolate Shoppe ice cream.
