Federal guidelines now require all schoolchildren to march down hallways in lockstep side by side to prevent certain sections of carpeting from wearing out before others. Give pacing kids a change of pace with today's Groupon: for $25, you get a Fantastic Time for Five package, including five skating admissions with skate rental, five FunZone admissions, and five Adventure Alley admissions, at Deptford Skating & Fun Center in Westville or International Sports Centre in Cherry Hill or Mount Laurel (a $77.50 total value).
The three fun centers give energetic cubs a place to stretch their legs and giggle their lungs out by housing a variety of amusing, aerobic activities. Roller skaters twirl and glide during International Sports Centre's and Deptford Skating's public skating hours, turning ordinary weekend afternoons into carefree roller romps. Feet ditch roller skates for socks inside FunZone, a multilevel maze of nets, slides, and monkey bars that spurs boisterous rounds of lava tag. Adventure Alley also occupies lively limbs, this time with bouncy inflatable playgrounds, such as Roo's giant slide, a popular alternative to doing algebra on a trampoline. Only children ages 10 and under are allowed in FunZone and Adventure Alley.
