What You'll Get
Superior hand-eye coordination enables people to text message while riding motorcycles and paint portraits of famous postmaster generals while eating funnel cake. Show off your own motor skills with today's Groupon: for $50, you and up to nine friends get 30 adrenaline-pumping minutes of WhirlyBall, a medium-impact sport that combines the best aspects of lacrosse, basketball, and bumper cars (up to a $101.65 value). WhirlyBall Atlanta is located in Roswell.
In WhirlyBall, participants maneuver free-range bumper cars and use a handheld scoop to collect wiffle balls to launch at the overhead targets located on either end of the court. You'll work together in teams of up to five at a time (up to 20 players are allowed on the court at once, and at least 10 are required) to crush your opponents in a whirlywind of scoops and balls. Surrounded by safety bumpers, your vehicle enjoys a complete range of motion with powerful steering that allows you to turn on a whim or a dime. If more than 20 Whirlers are in the party, players can be rotated in and watch from the comfort of leather lounge couches instead of gathering posterior splinters on the end of a rigid bench.
WhirlyBall levels the playing field between couch potatoes and accomplished athletes in a competition that replaces running with full-throttle maneuvers at blistering speeds reaching 3–4 miles per hour. A full-service bar is available to sate Whirled appetites, and customers are invited to watch the game, and hang out at WhirlyBall Atlanta's off-court pool tables and arcade games.
Sixteen Yelpers give WhirlyBall Atlanta an average rating of five stars:
