In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in go-karts and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with high-speed car chases and malevolent windmills. Impart vital life skills with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a Fun Card good for 10 attractions at FunPlex Fun Park in East Greenbush (up to a $40 value).
FunPlex Fun Park engages joy-seekers of all ages with a diverse array of family-friendly outdoor activities. Guests wielding the power of a Fun Card can select any 10 attractions from the recreational buffet. Familial compatriots can battle for control of the top bunk or first dibs on the classified listings over 18 nautically-themed holes of miniature golf or on the 25 vibrant and eclectically-oriented hoops of the bank-shot basketball court.
Enjoy solitary fun in single-person pursuits such as the tummy-twisting spaceball or the towering tangles of the spider mountain climbing structure. Senior members of the nuclear unit can vie for the pole position on the 1/8-mile road-course go-kart track, and their miniature associates can express youthful enthusiasm at Captain Hook's House of Fun, home to ball pits, slides, and other apparatus commonly found on pirate ships. The antigravity offerings of the bungee trampoline and bouncy house entice aspiring astronauts, and super-soaking bumper boats divert prospective mariners (at least 4 feet tall) too young to begin crashing larger craft.

Putt-putting through a pirate ship might normally result in the putter walking the plank. Not so at FunPlex Fun Park, where on the 18-hole mini-golf course, players navigate ocean-themed greens populated by alligators, a lighthouse, and one grounded speedboat. Thirteen attractions, including a bounce house and bumper boats, promise diversion for kids of almost any age. Go-karts spin around an eighth-mile track at up to 20 miles per hour, and kids aged 3–10 zip around at 6 miles per hour on the mini go-kart track. In Captain Hook's House of Fun, kids clamber inside the tunnels of a multilevel play structure, descending tube slides and diving into a pit filled with plastic balls, more fun than the ones at school that are filled with homework.
