Without modern entertainment centers, recreational pastimes would gradually morph back into games using the cup and ball, hoop and stick, or spear and armored mammoth. Relish contemporary activities with today's Groupon: for $6, you get a choice of three attractions at FunQuest in Lynchburg (a $10.50 value). Eligible attractions include roller-skating, skate rental, admission to PlayQuest for children 10 and under, one game of laser tag, and 12 tokens for the game room.
FunQuest packs a rush of exciting, family-friendly activities into its expansive facilities. Glide across the hardwood maple skating rink on traditional quad, modern in-line, or futuristic blade skates, enjoying lively games and wheel-tapping tunes. For those without organic rollers, skate rental can be selected as one of the three options or purchased separately for $3. The soft confines of PlayQuest invite kids 10 and younger on an epic crawl over bouncing floors, swings, and web mountains, with easy supervision available to parents and imaginary friends. Laser tag invites up to 24 older guests inside the dynamic Galactic Arena, featuring state-of-the-art sound. The on-site arcade offers siblings, frenemies, and escaped whack-a-moles 12 game tokens to settle scores with swift wits and thumbs and then trade ticketed winnings for prizes at the Stuff Shop.
When the swirls of smoke clear, the 22nd century appears in all its neon glory. Well, not the actual 22nd century. But FunQuest certainly evokes the future with its multi-level laser tag arena, where players clad in vests dodge incoming beams while firing their own. Colorful obstacles glow in the dark and provide cover throughout the space.
The rest of FunQuest contains equally family-friendly attractions, including a hardwood maple skating center. Inside, visitors glide along to upbeat tunes on quad or inline skates, and participate in classic games like the limbo and hokey pokey.
Even more games can be found at the arcade. These ones dispense tickets, and once players have collected enough, they can exchange them for prizes, such as an oversized bow for the family giant who had to wait in the parking lot.
Finally, for youngsters under the age of 10, the PlayQuest indoor playground has plenty of slides to ride, bouncy floors to traverse, and tubes to crawl through.
