Recent studies show family activities improve familial relationships, so long as those activities do not include setting fire to Dad's toupee. Enjoy wholesome familial entertainment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get two admissions to the playground or the laser tag arena, plus one large pizza and one pitcher of soda at Rockin' Robin's Amazone Family Entertainment Center (up to a $34 total value), located in Medina.
Amazone offers thrill-seeking children a massive playground filled with forest surprises, a laser tag arena observed by temple gods, and pizza from the Amazonian jungles of Italy. The award-winning three-story playground delights young Indiana Joneses as they run across the bridge, swing over the dangerous alligator pit, and speedily skid down a waterfall slide. Socks are required to enter the playground, but adults are allowed free admission if they follow their child jungle-guide. There's also a toddler playground for children under age three. One admission covers unlimited play on either playground until closing. Alternatively, equip your kids with futuristic blaster technology at Amazone's laser tag arena, where players can take cover behind the mysterious remnants of a rainforest city. One admission equals one game of laser tag (about 20 minutes, including a pre-skirmish briefing). Afterward, depleted children can refuel with a large pizza (a $15 value), topped with their choice of cheese, pepperoni, sausage, or mushroom, plus a refreshing pitcher of soda (a $5 value).
The two admissions can be split between two people.

Amazone Family Entertainment Center
Winner of ParentsConnect's award for Cleveland's Best Indoor Playspace in 2009, Amazone Family Entertainment Center sets the stage for jungle-themed parties and open play sessions. Its three-story playground surrounds kids and parents in slides, bridges, and plastic trees, all accented by faux foliage that simulates the gorilla-run play centers of the Amazon. Elsewhere, the glowing eyes of temple creatures peer down at players within a black-lit laser-tag arena. An orchestra of laughter and electronic beeps emerge from within the arcade, which hosts 50 games, including air hockey, skee ball, and racing. To fuel playtime, Amazone's team slings pizza at a snack bar and hosts celebrations within five themed birthday-party rooms. The facility also caters to parents with comfy couches and free WiFi that lets them stream their favorite cartoons.
