Growing up, animals learn useful survival skills through seemingly innocent chasing games and nightly rounds of laser tag. Hone your family's wilderness skills with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a game card loaded with 120 points, plus 17 bonus points (a $0.25 value/point), good for mini golf, laser tag, arcade games, and more at The Sphere (a $30 value).
Whooping and bouncing across more than 225,000 square feet of The Sphere, patrons immerse themselves in both sporty spaces, such as two ice rinks (28 points) and a 21-foot climbing wall (20 points), and oddball attractions such as mini golf (20 points) and laser tag (24 points). Singular diversions also include trampoline basketball, which combines one-on-one hoops with the thrill of hydraulic kneecaps (20 points for two people). Players gaze into the glowing future of warfare amidst bright green and red columns during a round of laser tag (24 points), then head to the arcade (20 points for 125 games) to reenact the great skee-ball wars of the past.
Conceivably, you could visit Sports Plus for a week straight and partake in a different activity each day—you just might have to change your shoes. At 250,000 square feet, Sports Plus truly comes through on the plus part of its name as one of the largest sports facilities in greater Cincinnati. Inside, games unfold atop multiple basketball and volleyball courts and hockey rinks. Guests can also climb an on-site rock wall, bounce across inflatable structures, and join games of broomball. Sports Plus also features a bar and grill, meaning competitors can re-fuel on the spot instead of hoping for a semi-truck full of protein powder to overturn nearby.
