While children spend all their days daydreaming about pushing paper, answering office phones, and filling out spreadsheets, adults long for the fragrant adventure-lands of their youth. Today's Groupon delivers sweet nostalgia to the old and novel excitement to the young: for $8, you get the Super Combo at Belmont Park (a $20 value), which includes unlimited access to the Sky Ropes Adventure, Mirror Maze, Laser Maze, Laser Evader, and Pirate Mini-Golf, as well as $5 worth of arcade tokens.
The historic attractions at Belmont Park have enchanted mail clerks and amateur parrots for more than 80 years, since the opening of the iconic Giant Dipper roller coaster and Plunge Olympic Pool. Refusing to remain static, the park has expanded and integrated new entertainment pulls over the years.

With putting secured under one's golf-belt, a sojourn at the funhouse world of the Magical Mystery Mirror Maze can aid in the embrace of altered perception as California’s only mirror maze of its kind, where long halls of mirrors unfold to the sound of '60s psychedelic music, and a million reflections of yourself unite to find an exit.

You will also have unlimited access to the Sky Ropes Adventure, which is a brand-new, obstacle-filled course suspended high above the ground.
