Forced to cut its cultural budget or face a total loss of its nation's heritage, Scottish Parliament settled on miniaturizing golf—a fortunate last-minute substitute for miniaturizing kilts. Celebrate the Scots' pared-down pastime and other fun activities with today's Groupon: for $9, you get your choice of three attractions at Zig-E’s Funland (up to an $18 value) in St. John, IN. This Groupon expires September 30.
Zig-E’s Funland entertains families with an array of outdoor games, events, and activities. Customers may choose three of four available attractions in any combination, with the exception of mash-ups such as batting karts and bungee golf. Click the clasp of your seat belt and rev a horsepower engine toward a flash-photo finish on the go-kart track or exchange six batting-cage tokens for a chance to face 90 pitches from a robotic ace. Eighteen holes of mini golf under shady trees present a leisurely endeavor for golfers of all ages, and the new bungee trampoline sparks adrenaline and euphoria in equal measure as tethered customers bounce high enough to pluck quills from passing birds before gravity wrests their bodies back toward terra firma.
Each year during early spring, the frost clinging to Northwest Indiana thaws, clearing the way for drivers to careen over the gently banked turns of the go-kart track at Zig-E's Funland. Its friendly staff is on hand to point visitors in the direction of other attractions as well, including a bungee trampoline and the waterfall-flanked greens of the 18-hole mini-golf course that blankets the 3.4-acre property. Inside, a year-round arcade is packed with more than 50 video and redemption games that buzz and blip as players pass virtual levels and amass redemption tickets. Throughout their visit, these fun seekers can stop at the snack shop to reenergize while reveling in the staff's tales of the heroes and heroines of tactical laser tag.
