Much like a trip to Holland, an afternoon of mini golf is an easy way to find out if you're afraid of windmills. Discover more about yourself via putting with today's Groupon: for $18, you get a mini-golf package for four at The People’s Choice Family Fun Center in Waukegan, just three miles east of Six Flags (up to a $47.99 value). The package includes:
- 18 holes of glow-in-the-dark mini golf for four (up to a $30 value)
- One family pizza pack (a $17.99 value), which includes:
- One large 14" cheese pizza
- One large pitcher of pop
- 40 arcade tokens
Thrill seekers of all ages weave through The People’s Choice Family Fun Center's 43,000-square-foot entertainment arena. Throughout the 18 holes of Rocky’s Fun House Miniature Golf, putters tiptoe through a darkened wonderland of glow-in-the-dark circus shapes. Beyond the 16-foot moving ferris wheel, guests bounce their reflections around the wacky mirror room, distorting them into skinny, chubby, and samurai doppelgangers. At the final hole, guarded by a strongman bell ringer, those who sink a hole in one win a free round of golf for two and the lifelong friendship of triceratops mascot Rocky.
In the arcade, tokens jingle into 150 of the latest video games and classics including air hockey, rewarding winners with a selection of 1,000 prizes. Quartets can recharge with a large cheese pizza and a large pitcher of soda, sipping and munching while carnival music plays and occasional alarms sound to indicate that one of the elephants is cheating at skee-ball.
The People's Choice Family Fun Center
Located three miles from Six Flags, The People's Choice Family Fun Center's canary-yellow, 43,000-square-foot arena buzzes with the thrill of friendly competition across 150 arcade games and the 18-hole Rocky's Fun House Miniature Golf course. Styled to mimic a circus, the venue features statues of carnival barkers who challenge guests to step right up to skee-ball and air hockey. Players gather loot at the redemption center, where they can exchange spools of tickets won at arcade games for the more than 1,000 prizes, from candy and stuffed animals to electronics and a lifetime of self-satisfaction. Servers at the food court dish out festival eats including cotton candy and pizza, and vendors at Hershey's Ice Cream Shoppe fill cones, cups, and top hats with frosty treats. The center also plays host to holiday events and private parties throughout the year. Beyond the hustle and bustle of the carnival resides an 18-hole miniature golf course known as Rocky's Fun House Miniature Golf. Here, putters tiptoe through a darkened wonderland of glow-in-the-dark circus shapes. A phosphorescent replication of trapeze artists, elephants, and escaped monkeys running amok greets putt-putt posses in the circus-themed segment, challenging their ability to focus on deviously placed holes. A moving ferris wheel towers over players as they size up the unique challenges of each hole and read the grain of the AstroTurf; fun-house mirrors bend beams of light into goofy, distorted reflections. At the final hole, which is guarded by a strongman bell ringer, those who sink a hole in one win a free round of golf for two and the lifelong friendship of Rocky, the triceratops mascot.
