What You'll Get
Getting your family together for a game of laser tag is an easier way to keep track of the kids than ear tagging, which requires tranquilizer guns. Gather your herd sans violence with today's Groupon: for $9, you get two rounds of laser tag, 18 holes of mini golf, and one scoop of ice cream at Lazer Force Lazer Tag Zone in Caseyville, Illinois (up to a $19 value).
Named best site for adult birthdays by the Riverfront Times in 2010, Lazer Force caters to both child- and adult-sized mini golfers, laser taggers, and ice cream imbibers. Leave a trail of fluorescent crumbs to find your way around the two-story, 7,800-square-foot laser-tag arena, using your own infrared pea shooter to electronically inflame the vests of up to 30 shadowy opponents. Unlike the painful pellets of paintball and the stinging pans of pro pie fighting, lasers will leave delicate bodies undamaged and fragile pride mostly intact. At the end of the round, each survivor receives a detailed scorecard clinically evaluating his or her performance, notarized by Charles Hard Townes, inventor of the laser.
Eighteen holes of indoor mini golf prove that while laser and tag taste great together, they taste best when coupled with a golf ball amuse-bouche. After perfecting bank shots on Tron-esque set pieces, end a day of futuristic play the same way wasteland marauders in 2045 will: with a delicious scoop of ice cream in a cup or cone.
