The family is the basic unit of society—yet, statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the last soda from the fridge. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get an all-day video-game play pass at GameWorks, located in Newport, KY. Each pass purchased can only be used by one person; buy up to five and bring the entire family or a school of bipedal fish.
GameWorks, a gigantic entertainment destination constructed with flashy Vegas panache, ensures both children and adults have a delightful time fighting pixelated zombies. Choose from a windmill-factory’s worth (more than 200) of video games, including crowd favorites such as Guitar Hero, Razing Storm, and Midnight Max Tune 3. Race a raucous motion car game while imagining your head is bald with The Fast and the Furious, or pay a nostalgic visit to the old school with games such as Pac-Man, Mario Kart, and Space Wonder. Your card is also valid for virtual dance stations and shooting games. Although today’s Groupon does not cover the cost of food or drinks, you won’t have far to wander for sustenance thanks to an on-site restaurant and two bars with potent potables for the adults.
