In addition to providing recreational enjoyment, riding in go-karts and playing miniature golf are excellent ways to prepare children for a future filled with high-speed car chases and malevolent windmills. Give tykes the tools to succeed with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get two hours of unlimited go-karting and mini golf for two at Zone Action Park in Lewisville (a $33.98 value).
Zone Action Park’s go-kart tracks and two mini-golf courses jump-start fun-engines of all ages with action-packed family entertainment. Adrenaline levels spike in time with speedometers as wheel-pods whiz around curves and fly down straightaways in the Speed Zone. Thrill-seekers 54 inches or taller fit safely into the full-size karts, several of which can seat a second passenger of at least 42 inches behind the driver to share the adventure and drop Looney Tunes –style holes into the paths of the competition. The neighboring Jr. Speed Zone requires drivers to be at least 3 years old and 36–48 inches tall to race kid-specific roadsters, which let little drivers live out their grownup fantasies. Meanwhile, colorful spheres relentlessly seek subterranean homes across fuzzy green expanses on the park’s two 18-hole mini-golf courses. Putter wielders thwack, tap, and nudge balls across twisting and turning paths, obstacles, and rifts in the fabric of the universe, aiding them in their quests to reach elusive burrows.
After a double-hour of outdoor amusement, famished stomachs can refill at the snack shop, noshing on hot dogs and snow cones or fanning mouths with a slice of pizza. A bevy of arcade games offers shaded entertainment for sun-soaked hands and feet.
