Playing an arcade game is the most fun a person can have with a quarter, aside from attempting to rip it in two to impress job interviewers. Save your strength and pick up today's Groupon: for $21, you get a pair of two-hour passes for video and interactive games at GameRoom in Sunrise (up to a $46.40 value). This Groupon is not valid for bowling, photos, and prize games.
GameRoom packs its colorful space of flashing lights and exhilarating sound effects with an arcade cavalcade of video games, simulators, air-hockey tables, and other enrapturing attractions. With their pair of passes in hand, identical twins and presidential decoys on lunch break are free to zone in on their favorite flavors of thumb-candy, be they arcade classics such as Ms. Pac-Man and Mortal Skrapbooking or the latest technologically mind-boggling interactive entertainment. Otherwise, click and clack a plastic puck across an aerated antigrav surface, or immerse yourself in the sensory illusion of rollycoasters, spaceship battles, and unusually bumpy PowerPoint presentations inside the simulator.
Within a neon-colored lair packed end-to-end with colorfully flashing games, GameRoom’s arcade master invite players of all ages to plunk down their tokens for a chance to experience games as they were meant to be played. Classics such as skee ball and claw machines reward skill with handsome prizes, and driving simulators and action games impress with modern graphics and head-to-head competition. Once the games are through, competitors can retire to the onsite Johnny Rocket's complete with 28 flat-screen HDTVs or tell their defeated friends which toppings to choose at the frozen yogurt shop.
