Whirlyball becomes more intense when you introduce bumper cars, just as ping-pong becomes more intense when you introduce steaming hot paddles. Heighten the competition with this Groupon.
$125 for Whirlyball Outing with Refreshments (Up to $219.85 Value)
- One hour of whirlyball for up to 15 people
- One large, one-topping pizza
- Two pitchers of soda or one pitcher of beer
Up to 15 players take turns colliding in bumper cars while trying to sink a wiffle ball into the opposing team's goal. Each player takes to the rectangular indoor court armed with a ball scoop and a bumper car. The game combines the passing skills required to win at lacrosse, the strategy required to succeed in hockey, and the reckless abandon required to steer bumper cars. Groupon customers also receive $50 off their second hour if reserved at time of purchase. Discount applies to the retail price of $200 per hour.
Joe Dumars Fieldhouse
Founded in 1994 as a community-based recreation center, Joe Dumars Fieldhouse is a 100,000-square-foot facility that houses sports leagues and camps in addition to an arcade-equipped entertainment center and an indoor/outdoor restaurant. Dumars' value of sportsmanship lives on through league play and pickup games on one of nine basketball courts and in two full-sized hockey arenas. Camps and clinics provide activity-based instruction to little ones, and the entertainment center's mini-golf and mini-bowling areas host small-scale enjoyment without enforcing miniature-shoe rentals. After rigorous activity, guests can head to Joe's Southern Grill, an arena-themed eatery with tables made from the Pistons' NBA-championship basketball court and a kitchen supervised by head chef Bill Laimbeer.
