Like haunted candy stores, amusement parks provide an acceptable atmosphere in which to scream aloud with a mouth full of confections. Get a sugar rush and adrenaline fix in one outing with this Groupon.

Any number of people may use the 5-attraction pass for any combination of mini-golf rounds, visits to the bounce house, and rounds in the batting cages (each round is 17 pitches). The 10-attraction pass is valid for the same activities, but must be redeemed by a group of four or more people.<p>
In a 2011 interview with the Rocky Mount Telegram, George Millar reveals he has been a facilitating fun for a long time. "Soccer wasn't in existence when we started," he points out, and neither were home video games. Noticing a dearth of places in his hometown where kids and families could safely enjoy themselves, he put his skills as a professional contractor to work. In 10 outdoor batting cages, he installed pitching machines that sling baseballs and softballs from T-ball speeds up to 80 miles per hour. Next, he and his crew of five guys—all of whom are still operating the business today—built an 18-hole mini-golf course modeled after those in Myrtle Beach, designing a path that winds past waterfalls, natural plantings, and tricky bunkers filled with saltwater taffy. An arcade blares with games and the crack of pool balls ricocheting inside, and an elephant-shaped inflatable bounce house bobs with jumpers inside until they come zipping out down its slide.
