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 all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one all-day pass to Timber Falls in Wisconsin Dells, including unlimited access to the log flume, bumper boats, and mini golf, as well as five rides on the Hellcat roller coaster and 50% off the Skyscraper thrill ride (up to a $19.99 value).
Four adrenaline-pumping rides, 72 holes of mini golf, and bumper boats entertain visitors to Timber Falls. The Hellcat ride, which can be challenged up to five times with an all-day pass, tests vocal-cord volumes with 70-degree banked turns and 10-story drops, and the Timber Wolf "Howling" Log Flume sends passengers on vertical plunges as steep as those used to train astronauts before they ride logs into outer space. Child helmsmen and adult captains collide with rival crews in high-seas bumper-boat wars, or put their 50% discount on the 60-mph, 160-foot-high Skyscraper thrill ride to good use (normally $22). Mini golfers can putt across four different 18-hole courses, each sporting a lush tree canopy, thundering waterfalls, and politely clapping squirrels.
Knucklehead’s Bowling & Indoor Amusement Park
Knucklehead's Bowling & Indoor Amusement Park's 80,000-square-foot facility is bursting with a dozen family-friendly attractions. In the bowling alley, a light show illuminates pins and balls to the tune of festive music and a black light adds an eerie neon glow to cosmic bowling. You can also bowl under conventional lighting, of course, opting for automatic bumpers to prevent gutter balls and marshmallow pins to muffle noisy strikes. Elsewhere, go-karts zoom around a track, bumper cars collide, and visitors swing hand-over-hand through a weblike ropes course. A roller coaster zooms throughout the space, and the arcade whirs and flashes with video games such as Dance Dance Revolution and Madden, as well as traditional games that award prize tickets to their deftest handlers.
