Without dedicated bonding time, family members grow resentful of one another’s bad habits, such as cheating at Monopoly and warming socks in the toaster. Preserve familial unity with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get a bowling and bumper-car outing for four at Funway Ultimate Entertainment Center in Batavia (up to a $56.75 value). The package includes:
- Four games of bowling (up to a $17 value)
- Four shoe rentals (up to a $13 value)
- Four bumper-car rides (a $15 value)
- One cheese pizza (an $11.75 value)<p>
Funway Ultimate Entertainment Center’s five mirthful acres brim with activities to stir youthful excitement, including bowling, bumper cars, and a bustling arcade. Quartets clamber into rental bowling shoes before stepping onto one of 20 immaculately oiled lanes to fell pins and thus determine who gets provisional immunity from noogies. Meanwhile, circular, joystick-operated bumper cars spin and ricochet off each other in the arena. Bumped and bowled out, groups retire to the concession stand to demolish a cheese pizza, slice by slice. Numerous other activities beckon to fun-seekers, including roller-skating, mini golf, and virtual Supreme Court hearings in the arcade⎯though these pursuits are not included in today’s deal.
Funway Ultimate Entertainment Center
The designers of Funway Ultimate Entertainment Center built the interactive, 5-acre playground to give friends and family access to engaging activities any time of the year. During warmer months, kids and energetic adults transform into watery pinballs at the bumper boats and pilot speedy go-karts on a 700-foot outdoor course. Batting cages let guests knock the covers off balls and the rust off their swings, and soccer cages give footy fans the chance to test their kicking and trapping skills. Guests can also soak in rays while putting around a wagon-trail-themed mini-golf course sporting 16 tricky holes, and the trampoline-enhanced game of Jump Shot creates a whole new way to enjoy basketball. When the weather is not as favorable, guests can head to the indoor area at Funway, which is packed with a plethora of activities for family daycations, including a modern 20-lane bowling alley and an old-fashioned roller rink with a choice of quads or inline skates. Bumper cars provide a dry alternative to the wet-and-wild bumper boats, and Rock & Roll indoor mini golf glows under black lights. Rounding out the rollicking activities is the arcade, boasting more than 75 video games and pinball machines, along with the laser maze and hunger-quenching Big R Corner Bar.
