Families that play miniature golf together stay together, mostly because the parents' wills are written with eraser-less golf pencils. Celebrate such trustworthiness and unify loved ones with today's Groupon: for $8, you get one round of miniature golf, one go-kart ride, and 20 arcade tokens (up to an $18.25 value) at Gateway Park Fun Center in Boulder. Buzzing and beeping from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Gateway Park Fun Center features indoor and outdoor amusement for the whole family, class, or a well-behaved phylum. Two naturalistic, 18-hole minigolf courses challenge putters in a finely groomed jungle of purple gorillas and pink elephants that stands between you and miniature immortality (children under 3 get into the courses for free). Meanwhile, motorized thrill-seekers can cruise more than 2,100 feet of screeching turns and breathless straightaways, while pint-sized charioteers can hit the special kiddie kart track. Once fuel runs out, feel free to retire to the arcade with 20 tokens worth of skee ball, wheel of fortune, tower of power, and more, before redeeming tickets to adopt stuffed animals and stock up on extra finger traps.
Seven Yelpers give Gateway Park Fun Center an average rating of 3.5 stars:
- Feel like a kid again! Whack some balls in the batting cage, play a round of mini-golf, or, my favorite, peel rubber in the go-carts. Each cart is different so pay attention if you have to wait in line; you don't want to be stuck with the lemon. – Amanda W.
- We went mini-golfing, go-kart racing and ski-balling on a weeknight and found the place pretty quiet. Compared to other places I've been like Gateway Park, the prices here are really reasonable for the quality of the place. Service was great. – Allison S.
Gateway Park Fun Center
Located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, Gateway Park Fun Center combines the splendor of its natural backdrop with a variety of manmade attractions. Fresh mountain air courses through the two 18-hole mini-golf courses and whips the hair of go-kart racers on a track more than 2,100 feet long. Guests with unstable hairdos can retreat inside, where an arcade loaded with games such as skee-ball and NFL Throw—along with a batting cage, driving range, and human maze—make the park a year-round destination.
