As punishment for his child-shrinking crimes, Ray Moranis was ordered to find a way to downsize the game of golf until it was small enough to be enjoyed by normal people. Frolic through a fun-sized round of golf with today's Groupon: for $10, you get 36 holes of mini golf for two at Rainforest Golf in Stone Mountain (up to a $20 value).
Rainforest Golf immerses kids, parents, and first-date duos in 36 holes of small-size tropical wonder. Cloaked in greenery and monitored by stoic jungle statues, the mini golf center houses two divergent sets of 18 tee-time opportunities. Little Arnold Palmers can putt their way through a golfing scenario featuring bridges, waterfalls, and nonfake stone. Along the way, tired players can rest achy feet and strategizing brains on benches bathed in canopy-quality shade. Rainforest Golf's indoor facilities peddle plenty of sustenance so golf winners can toast their victories with a postgame milkshake, ice-cream scoop, or cotton candy.

- Very nice place; very well kept; beautiful grounds; looks much better than it did years ago; good value – englprof1, Kudzu
- Rainforest Golf near Stone Mountain captures some of the tacky authenticity of the mini-golf courses you remember. A jungle theme loosely unifies its 36 holes – Curt Holman, Creative Loafing
All American Skating Center
All American Skating Center's staff fills two separate rinks with colorful lights and upbeat music during skating hours as gliders of all ages roll upon friction-defying wheels. Anyone can take to the floor of the main rink during open-skate sessions; the second rink welcomes young or new skaters to practice. Participants can hustle to classic dance tunes on disco night, glissade to uplifting numbers during gospel skate, or measure the diameter of the rink and divide by pi during geometry-jam sessions. An arcade entertains visitors who are taking a break or whose skates have been booted for failure to pay speeding tickets. Party packages in several tiers celebrate birthdays with skating followed by a feast of popcorn, pizza, hot dogs, and cake.
