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 Gameworld, located on Overland Road. Choose between the following options:
- For $9, you get four games of bowling, one shoe rental, a drink, and a slice of pizza (a $18.25 value including taxes).
- For $20, you get a Playercard loaded with $40 plus an $18 bonus (for a total gaming value of $58).
Part of the family-friendly Boise Spectrum complex, Gameworld whisks bowlers and gamers of all ages and skill levels away to an exciting fantasyland of fun. Swipe your Playercard at any of Gameworld’s dozens of video-game machines, which range from classics such as Pac-Man to new-fangled driving simulators, skee-ball lanes, and more. Try out the virtual rollycoaster ride inside the Max Flight machine. Alternatively, bowl four furious games while noshing on a slice of Perky’s pizza and sipping a 24-ounce soft drink. Gameworld offers both vintage-styled lanes and miniature, Route 66-themed lanes for little ones and sentient My Size Barbies. To further the fun for adults, a lineup of beers and wines is also available (not included in this deal).
At Gameworld, fun materializes in a variety of forms, from bowling to arcade games modeled after sporty endeavors and amusement park rides. Bowlers launch spheres down regulation-size lanes or the abbreviated alleys of a replica of Highway 66, featuring mini lanes striped with a highway median that cater specifically to toddlers, but can entertain competitors of all ages. After lifting bowling balls, gamers can cool down in the arcade, a haven for a veritable timeline of electronic adversaries from yesteryear's Pac-Man to modern Daytona racecars, as well as air hockey and a small climbing wall. The MaxFlight Simulator reigns supreme among its peers, emulating the jolting twists and turns of a rollercoaster ride without the annoyance of picking bugs off of teeth. Players refuel at Perky's Pizza with crispy slices or entire pies made to order, which can also power kids through bowling birthday parties that include bowling, gaming, and goody bags.
