Scientists agree that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a kids' play package for one or two kids at The Sports Zone in Southampton (up to a $20 value). The package includes:
- Eight game tokens (a $2 value) and one entry to the space jump (a $4 value).
- Children ages 7 and younger receive admission to the Kids' Zone (a $6 value). Children ages 8 and up receive eight supertokens (an $8 value) to use at the batting cages, rock-climbing wall, or virtual-reality sports games. This Groupon includes age-restricted items, which may be shared between two kids, but substitutions can be made so that children can partake of age-appropriate activities.
A giant, action-filled playground for kids of all ages, The Sports Zone packs a frenetic phantasmagoria of fun into 23,000 square feet of games and activities. Game tokens serve as currency in The Sports Zone's arcade of neon lights and ringing bells, where classic games such as skee-ball and whack-a-mole dispense tickets to exchange for prizes. Meanwhile, the space jump transports future astronauts to a world uninhibited by earthly hindrances such as gravity or shoes.
The Kids' Zone opens its doors to children ages 7 and younger, allowing them to traverse a colorful labyrinth of pipe mazes and fun-house mirrors. The Zone also houses a miniature carousel that spins children around as they squat atop pygmy horses with toadstools for saddles. An arcade showcases games suited for younger children, and tykes ages 8 and older can trade in The Sports Zone's supertokens to attack the junior rock-climbing rock wall. The vertical fortress rotates on its axis as a tread laced with footholds constantly moves underneath, safely simulating the thrill of bouldering under a steep cliff face. Two supertokens also equal 18 pitches in the batting cages, which challenge batters to blast the baseballs or softballs out of the cage, forever losing them in the Kids' Zone's multicolored ball pit.
