Trying to capture the ghost of Ulysses S. Grant is a popular family activity, however, it puts each member at risk of tripping over invisible shoelaces. Experience slightly more assured wholesome entertainment with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 toward any activity at Wildwood Highlands family fun center in Wildwood.
Wildwood Highlands serves an all-ages buffet of adrenaline-filled rides and fun-soaked activities. Many of the park's multitudinous activities run on a ticket system, including go-karts, bumper boats, Woody's Den, Kiddie City indoor playground, Water Wars, and Laser Extreme. Tickets are $1 each if purchasing 10 or fewer tickets, or you can get 25 tickets for $20 or 67 tickets for $50. Give rival brothers the chance to safely duke it out over the course of 15 to 20 minutes on the laser playing field (six tickets per game), or take a five-minute wiz around the 1,000-foot go-kart track in a single-driver kart (six tickets) to blow rogue cookie crumbs from your follicles. Or declare water war by heaving water-filled balloons at loved ones or hiring nearby lackeys to do your bidding (three tickets for a bucket).
With activities for young children, medium children, and adult children, Wildwood Highlands is like being in Neverland—no matter how hard you try, growing up is out of the question. Make sure to bring your camera, and don't forget to grab some extra digital film to capture every hole-in-one, laser blast, controlled boat collision, and the rare swarm of albino locusts that sometimes roams the grounds.
Wildwood Highlands serves an all-ages buffet of adrenaline-filled rides and fun-soaked activities that visitors can access with fistfuls of tickets. For five-minute intervals, go-karts whip through a winding, 1,000-foot course that challenges mini-motorists' reflexes, hand-eye coordination, and familial bonds with each cutoff to the inner rail. Visitors can captain bumper boats through the 5,000-square-foot Wildwood waters, thumping vessels as they pass fountains and circumvent the island. Four levels of soft playground in the Kiddie City keeps kids hopping and Woody's Den enchants small children with calliope music and magical animals who steer tots toward the spinning slime-bucket ride and old-fashioned train. The 28-person Laser Extreme laser tag system can grab the attention of older kids (and adults), while two 18-hole miniature-golf courses school putters in the principles of geometry and psyching out competitors with inopportune coughs and cackles.
Wildwood's arcade entices button smashers with more than 70 games that they can play to win tickets, which can be redeemed for prizes such as stuffed animals and action figures. While bouncing from attraction to attraction, thrill seekers can recharge their energy with pizzas, wraps, pretzels, and cotton candy at the snack bar.
