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 $15, you get a $30 game card to Golf & Games Family Park on Summer Avenue.
Golf & Games Family Park boasts a 100-game-strong arcade rife with prize-winning opportunities. Play a round of air hockey ($0.89) and show a punk puck who's boss, or try a game of Terminator ($1) to impress constituents in gubernatorial campaigns. Gamers can also find virtual mirth in Deal or No Deal ($1.10), Dead Heat ($2.08), and Super Bikes ($2.08). The array of virtual and hands-on digital games covers all the bases of the modern entertainment, from skeeball and pinball to driving and dish-washing simulators. Golf & Games' colorful décor keeps eyeballs as engaged as the button-pressing fingers and taunting, outstretched tongues.
Golf & Games Family Park opens at 8 a.m. and stays open late seven days a week.
Golf & Games Family Park
Thrill-seekers of all ages weave through Golf & Games Family Park’s 40-acre mini metropolis of indoor and outdoor attractions. Scampering legs can dart and dash through the neon-clad, 6,000-square-foot indoor laser-tag arena. A burbling waterfall streams through the park’s 54-hole mini-golf course, hemmed by lush landscaping and statues of various jungle-inhabiting creatures. Bumper boats bob in cerulean waters churned by colliding vessels as they circle a central, life-size elephant statue, and two go-kart courses cater to future and present-day adults. Guests can engage in more conventional contests such as volleyball, basketball, and horseshoes within the bucolic tree lines that frame the open picnic pavilions or hone various swing types at the park’s batting cages, 120-stall driving range, and spacious putting green.
