Children possess a natural level of energy not often found in adults, which may explain why so many politicians hire fourth-graders to run their campaigns. Cast a vote for youthful exuberance with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get two youth admissions (up to a $16.50 value) and a $5 voucher toward snacks at Escapades Family Fun Center in Muncie (up to a $21.50 total value). Adults get in for free.
Escapades Family Fun Center offers a haven for familial delight where adults can kick back and release children ages 1–15 into the safe plastic jungles of kid-dom. A massive three-story play maze invites young mouse-interpreters to scurry through a series of twists and turns before exiting via slide. A sea of colorful orbs awaits in the ball pit, allowing future Olympians to perfect the plastic backstroke or float lazily as they sip invisible piña coladas. Toddlers will find miniaturized versions of both the maze and ball pit, designed for smaller-size thrill-seekers. While offspring frolic, adults can decompress in the Quiet Room and take advantage of free WiFi.
The facility's menu boasts plenty of refueling opportunities, from quick fixes such as chips and cookies ($0.75 each) to freshly bundled mozzarella sticks ($4.95). Handcrafted pizzas ($5.50+) with an array of topping choices come in handy for quick meals or impromptu Ultimate Frisbee practices. With an emphasis on maintaining a safe and clean playscape, Escapades uses a high-tech sanitizing formula to keep all surfaces hygienic and youthful daredevils out of germs’ way.
Escapades Family Fun Center offers coupons online, but this Groupon still gets you the best available deal.
