Far superior to their outdoor counterparts, indoor amusement parks never shut down because of the weather, are open year-round, and are free of line-jumping seagulls that always sit in the front coaster car. Enjoy feather-free entertainment with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get two all-day ride wristbands at Jeepers! in Auburn Hills (a $23.98 value).
Jeepers! outfits its indoor theme park with five youngster-friendly rides and play areas for children younger than 12. Aerodynamic bananas soar surreally above the monkey-themed park's cartoonish colors and motion-blurred visitors. More daring mini humans squeal through a tilting, serpentine thrill ride on the snake-shaped rollycoaster or channel future fender-bending inclinations into a cavalry of bumper cars. Toddlers, meanwhile, can cavort in a giant soft play land without fear of knee-scrapes, and the Tiny Tot’s Train ferries small passengers with a minimum of daring robberies by mustachioed bandits. Jeepers! also sates stomachs with a smorgasbord of meals and drinks and twitchy thumbs with more than 80 arcade games (neither is included in the Groupon).
A miniature locomotive passes beneath the shadow of a towering monkey statue. Nearby, a python-shaped roller coaster zooms past oversized ferns and a yawning hippo. Tropical accents like these define Jeepers!’s frenetic, color-saturated space, which, in addition to five amusement park rides, entertains tykes aged 18 and younger with more than 80 arcade games. Once kids have expended their excess energy, families can retreat to the concession stand and refuel with a menu of pizzas and burgers.
