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 $10, you get $20 worth of mini golf and arcade tokens at Putt-Putt Fun Center. Choose between the Roanoke or Lynchburg locations.
Putt-Putt Fun Center's arcade games and putt-putt courses entertain family units with a combination of whimsical style and skill-challenging designs. Golfers can showcase their steady swings during a round of mini golf on one of Putt-Putt's courses ($6 for one player/course). Roanoke visitors may traipse through two 18-hole courses, zinging balls past cheerfully swaying palm trees and towering elephants on an animal-themed course. Lynchburg putters meander through 36-hole championship courses dotted with gushing waterfalls that produce rainbows in the form of Tiger Woods.
Both locations sport arcades where tokens ($0.25 each) unlock indoor diversions and lead to prizes. At Lynchburg’s arcade, bodies slink between laser beams in the black-lit Lazer Frenzy maze, and the Roanoke game room tempts visitors with booty such as stuffed animals, plastic toys, and high-yield hedge funds. Lynchburg thrill-seekers may linger outside to careen around 650 feet of go-kart track or escape gloating putt-putt victors in the blaster bumper boats.
