Forced to cut its cultural budget or face a total loss of its nation’s heritage, Scottish Parliament settled on miniaturizing golf—a fortunate last-minute substitute for miniaturizing kilts. Celebrate the Scots’ pared-down pastime with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get a putt and play package for five at Lazer Port Fun Center in Pigeon Forge (a $55 value). This package includes the following:
- Five individual rounds of 18-hole mini golf (a $10 value each)
- $5 worth of arcade tokens to share
Open until midnight or later, Lazer Port Fun Center enchants party hoppers with indoor mini golf played across a neon moonscape, as well as a sprawling 10,000-square-foot arcade. Quintets of club swingers traverse a neon odyssey of black-light blues and greens as they tame the 18-hole course aglow with asteroids, aliens, robots, and professionally staged moon landings. Jostle and compete with four other mini-golf combatants until the final hole, and then amble over to Lazer Port’s sprawling arcade to chug tokens into all manner of interactive games.
Lazer Port Fun Center
With guidance from the friendly staff at Lazer Port Fun Center, spontaneous family adventures can begin with laps around the three-story go-kart track. Visiting racers and thrill-seeking spools of twine wind around corners, maneuver along helixes, and plunge down a 40-foot hill, before seeking out indoor adventures. 14,000 square feet of laser-tag landscape invite photon-fighting visitors to participate in 30-minute skirmishes, speeding across black-lit terrain and taking refuge behind alien figures while cosmic landscapes flicker in the background. After an engaging battle, visitors can settle into a 30-minute groove through the outer-space-themed mini-golf course. Cratered asteroids throw neon-yellow light on green fairways as they navigate between crashed spacecrafts, maintaining focus despite the heckling of gravity. The mesmerizing haze of LEDs and bells beckons visitors onward toward the arcade for ticket-churning rounds of prize games.
