Miniature versions often present significant advantages—take the TV version of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, the running time of which perfectly matches the average time between sour gummy-worm cravings. Shrink your golf game down to size with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of miniature golf or Jump Shot basketball at Putting Plus. Trade your Groupon for a gift card at this fun emporium on the corner of North 90th Street and Maple. Like an employee punch card, the gift card can be redeemed across multiple visits until its value is depleted, at which time your entertainment will be outsourced.
Open since 1967, Putting Plus is a beloved Omaha leisure facility that brings out the inner child of adults, the inner teen of adults, and the inner golf-baller of any-aged folks. In all, there are three family-friendly miniature-golf courses ($5–$6 per course), featuring 18 holes of challenging curves, drops, water hazards, and mysterious holes that, when you reach in to retrieve your ball, cause your hand to pop out of another hole 20 yards away.
You can also use today's Groupon toward Jump Shot, a two-player trampoline basketball game ($6 for 10 minutes). Jump with a mesh-screen divider and try to score more points on your opponent's basket while defending your own, just like medieval knights used to do. Though the main objective is to make baskets, the secondary mission is to dazzle bystanders with graceful airborne movements capable of impressing even the most pretentious of peregrine falcons. Today's Groupon gives families an outdoor outlet for hours of charging up boisterous, safe fun, while providing long-lost Siamese twins the opportunity to finally determine who's better at basketball, trampolines, mini-golf, and fun in general.
