The family is the basic unit of society—yet statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the extra Arch Deluxe you've been saving for all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $13, you get a one-day Karts Plus Pass to Swings-N-Things Family Fun Park in Olmsted Township (up to a $27.99 value).
During the sunny outdoor season, beginning on April 22, Swings-N-Things hosts active outdoor attractions including mini golf, batting cages (six tokens for $4.75 with the Karts Plus Pass), bumper boats, and go-karts, which let road warriors drive low and fast without real-road hindrances such as traffic lights, and banana peels.
During the colder months, the indoor attractions at Swings-N-Things entertain and delight families who wish to escape the chilly wetness of winter-spring. Two floors of games boast pixilated challenges, which–when bested–spit out tickets that can be exchanged for a bevy of prizes. Video gamers can try the Ground Zero Laser Shoot-Out, wielding virtual lasers to vaporize crystals or enjoy real-life plastic tubing adventures at the Kids Korner, a sinuous indoor playing field with slides, climbing, and more.

Children ages 10 and younger scramble their socked feet over slides and rides inside the Kids Korner indoor play area. Swings-N-Things Fun Park is easily accessible from the area's major highways.
