Miniature golf makes a great first date, unlike miniature dinner, which can leave companions grouchy and overly combative over unearthed stashes of stale mints. Keep courting civil with today's Groupon; for $9, you get one go-kart ride (a $12 value) and a round of 18-hole mini golf (up to a $6.75 value) at Statler's Fun Center in Greensburg (up to an $18.75 total value).
Statler's Fun Center dishes out full-sized amusement with its 18-hole mini-golf course and more than quarter-mile-long go-kart track. Rev up the day with a 10-minute one-seat go-kart ride on the 1,528-foot-long course, perfect for racing friends, honing NASCAR skills, and testing 1,528-foot-long tape measures. Riders can test reflexes with hairpin turns and a double over-and-under bridge, sure to race pulses and cause intense feelings of déjà vu. After the dust settles, break out the tweed-wear and head to the mini-golf course, which challenges green grazers with a play-through cave and a series of waterfalls, streams, and blinding camera flashes from mini-golf paparazzi. Though not included in today's Groupon, weary sphere smashers can refuel at the snack shop or put off laundry day by slinging quarters in the air-conditioned, indoor video-game arcade.
Statler's Fun Center
Rolling over the naturally hilly landscape, the bright-green turf of Statler’s Fun Center’s miniature-golf course winds around the center’s 1,528-foot go-kart track. Engines roar as racers 10 or older zip through the over-and-under bridge’s tight turns or give their lead foot free rein on the straightaways.
The soundtrack of purring motors underscores high-stakes games of miniature golf as players putt their way through deviously landscaped greens, expertly maneuvering the cave with a hidden waterfall and defeating the final hole guarded by squatting gophers. An air-conditioned snack shop provides respite from summer heat with cool drinks and an arcade full of excuses to hang out indoors, such as the classic air-hockey table and skee-ball.
