In America's early days, the only way for children to get unlimited playtime was to sneak into a gym and play hoop and stick on a treadmill. Play all day in a safer way with today's deal: for $13, you get an unlimited-ride wristband (up to a $16.95 value) plus a $10 game card at Fun Station USA in Lynbrook. Grab up to three Groupons to maximize the fun factor, and swing through during open hours (Fun Station USA is closed Monday-Thursday until June 27). Accessorized by an unlimited-ride wristband, youngsters spend the day driving bumper cars, riding carousels, going on automated jeep safaris, and pretending to be a pilot by whirling around in kiddie helicopters. Pint-sized people can explore the sock-friendly stretches of the mighty maze, and nearly grownups or oversized man-children can use their $10 game card to exercise twitchy trigger fingers in the arcade. In between honing steely-eyed race reflexes, swing through the food court to refuel stomach tanks. With a variety of rides, a full range of arcade games, and a safe, family-friendly environment, you and your short-stacks will have no shortage of activities, and by day's end, you'll have an ample supply of memories to hang on your cranial fridges. Some rides require rider to have socks.
Fun Station USA
Fun Station USA fills its indoor space with the scaled-down amenities of an amusement park, such as mechanical rides, a multileveled maze, and a large concession stand stocked with carnival cuisine. At all hours of operation, the air buzzes with excitement—a byproduct of jingle-jangling machines, flashing lights, and splashes of color at every corner. After acquiring tickets from myriad arcade games that include skee-ball and air-cannon shooting galleries, revelers head to the redemption counter to exchange their winnings for prizes and foreign currency.
