When Eisenhower designed the Interstate Highway system, he envisioned a lawless death-race arena where only the fastest could avoid being killed by mechanical gulls. Experience a thrilling fraction of his racing dream with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a 20-punch activity pass (a $99 value) to Ironbridge Sports Park, good for trips to the driving range, mini-golf course, batting cage, and go-kart track.
On a family-friendly concourse, Ironbridge Sports Park treats golfers, racers, and ballplayers to standard and miniature versions of their favorite activities. Swing-smiths enjoy 60 covered and heated hitting stations on the driving range, and the miniature golf course challenges golfers to 18-holes of Technicolor terrain filled with ponds, fountains, bridges, and tunnels. Speed solo around Ironbridge's quarter-mile adult go-kart track (you must be 54" tall to drive), or hop into a double-seater, which can accommodate one licensed driver plus a pre-adult passenger (you must be at least 40" tall). Nine batting-cage stations with adjustable height settings launch baseballs and softballs at 35–80 mph speeds, preparing bat wielders for ballgames and spontaneous battles with unusually aggressive oranges.
As spring approaches, leaves start to fly back from southern retreats, bringing back live musical acts and classic-car shows to Ironbridge Sports Park. Visit the events page for details.
Ironbridge Sports Park
Most miniature golf courses have greens that are actually green, but not Ironbridge Sports Park—the Park's 18-hole course trades the faux-grass for pastel purple, yellow, red, and blue, adding some color to the already whimsical game. The course's vibrant personality extends throughout the park, where guests crack baseballs and softballs in batting cages, dodge phosphorescent bullets in the outdoor laser tag field, and practice parallel parking in go-karts. A two-tiered driving range hosts swing practice across 60 hitting stations, which are covered and heated for year-round use.
