When snow-angel making and endless rounds of cribbage get old, today’s playful Groupon will bring some wall-bouncing energy to the sluggish winter season. For $10, you’ll get a $30 Winter Fun package at Swing-A-Round Fun Town, a St. Louis amusement emporium that’s been delighting families for more than 20 years, though not literally, as demonstrated by the lack of Rip Van Winkle beards over unparalleled smiles. Round up friends and family and enjoy 70 game tokens, five frames of Bowlingo Bowling, two all-day kids’ passes for soft playland (much safer than nearby rival Scissorland), and your choice of either 9 or 18 holes of mini-golf.
The 12,000-square-foot indoor facility boasts 80 of the newest games, which are sure to swell your thumbs with bliss. Inside, you can also exhaust energetic kids with endless romps through the twisting tubes and tunnels of the soft playground, without fear of knee scrapage or fontanel bumpitude, or challenge friends to Bowlingo Bowling, Swing-A-Round Fun Town’s newest attraction.
Take matters outside at one of the Fenton location’s three professionally designed mini-golf courses (way better than mini-golf courses scraped together by summer interns). Waterfalls and rivers line the Lilliputian greens, making this a pleasurable activity for toddlers and seniors, allowing them to converse about their mutual love of soft foods and snappy rhythms.
Get this Groupon to indulge both inner and real children.
- If the kids are clamoring for something to do, I highly recommend Swing Around Fun Town. It is always fun as a family to play some miniature golf or hit the bumper cars! – John B., Insider Pages
- The equipment and everything seems to be in good condition and nothing is run down. It's in a handy location in the Fenton/141 area, so it's convenient for many St. Louis families. Parking is abundant. – B K., Insider Pages

Swing-A-Round Fun Town
Interactive bumper cars, 80 arcade games, and the tubes, tunnels, and slides of a soft playground all nestle within the 12,000-square-foot Swing-A-Round Fun Town facility in Fenton. Outside, waterfalls and fountains surround three professionally designed outdoor mini golf courses, and a mammoth pond accommodates 15 colliding bumper boats. The fun continues at the kiddie kart track for youngsters 3–8 years old or the more than 1,100-foot adult track, where kids can join a parent in a double-seat go-kart whose second steering wheel allows tykes to pretend drive and practice ignoring hitchhikers. Elsewhere, nine batting cages test players' homerun hitting skills with softball slow and fast pitches or baseballs flung at 35–80 mph.
