  • West County Lanes
    Since 1965, bowling buffs have decimated the pins at West County Lanes. Slip into a pair of piebald loafers ($2.75 for a rental) and practice perfect follow-throughs as you hurl sporty spheroids down any of the 24 lanes ($3.25 per person each game, $3.75 weekends and holidays; $15 per lane each hour, $18 weekends and holidays). Powered by a savvy system, hanging monitors display scores as well as embarrassing childhood photos of any player who rolls a gutter ball. On Fridays from 6 p.m. to 1 a.m. and Saturdays after 10 p.m., the futuristic lights and glow-in-the-dark lanes of cosmic bowling ($19 per lane each hour) comfort homesick time-travelers trapped in the ancient present.

  • Brunswick Bowling
    Bowling is the great social equalizer—a common ground where grizzled undercover clowns, blue-collar English lords, LARPer librarians, big and tall lingerie models, hordes of hive-minded hipsters, and the other two social demographics that comprise America can unite in common cause and topple a gaggle of stuck-up, inanimate wooden pins. Brunswick has been a household name in this egalitarian pastime almost since the beginning, with a company history that dates back to the 19th century, providing classic American good times to all manner of patrons across the country. And with today's Groupon tying the room together, you'll get to play two games (up to a $7.98 value) in its hallowed halls wearing a pair of freshly disinfected bowling shoes (up to a $3.69 value).

  • Chesterfield Family Aquatic Center
    When the summer heat is too much to handle, the Chesterfield Family Aquatic Center becomes an outdoor oasis of cool water and play. Surge down three water slides, practice your backstroke in the competition pool, or let the currents carry you as you float down the lazy river. The center also houses changing areas, showers, lockers, and a sunny deck. In the aquaplay unit, a massive bucket dumps a waterfall on frolicking groups below and a shallow pool tricks little kids into thinking they're in an endless puddle.

  • Butterfly House
    The tri-pronged value of the Triceratops tickets guarantees daytime admission—rain or shine or airborne toxic event—to the DinoQuest exhibit in the Missouri Botanical Garden's Climatron, a half-acre geodesic dome filled with pools and waterfalls, along with tropical rainforest florae and faunae. You'll also enjoy admission to the Doris I. Schnuck Children's Garden, as well as the coordinated Jurassic Bugs exhibit at the Butterfly House. The Climatron and Children's Garden must be visited on the same day; when you redeem your Groupon at the Botanical Garden and Children’s Garden, you will receive a pass to the Butterfly House, which may be redeemed on a separate date from the first two exhibits.

  • Pemberley Equestrian Center
    Each expert equestrian at Pemberley schools riders ages 6 and up on the essentials of good horsemanship and welcomes them to pick his or her brain of its abounding horse knowledge. The first horseback-riding lesson will be a one-hour evaluation that surveys guests on their previous riding experiences to be paired with the appropriate horse and trainer ($60). The next two lessons are 30-minute, horse-handling sessions ($55 each), in which riders will learn how to entice graceful gallops out of their faithful steeds, properly tack their four-legged partners, and sleep standing up.

  • The Neutral Zone
    Recently voted Best Arcade St. Louis 2013 by the Riverfront Times, The Neutral Zone may have started out as a small retail store for video games, trading cards, and collectibles. But the biggest draw was always the handful of classic arcade games in the back of the space. Now it holds more than 100 machines, from new games like Tekken, VirtuaTennis, and Star Wars Trilogy to classics such as Galaga, Ms. Pac-Man, and Donkey Kong. Four-person games such as X-Men, NBA Jam, and The Simpsons make it easy to play as a group, and rarities such as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time impress arcade connoisseurs. The owners constantly add new machines to their carefully curated collection; recent acquisitions include Atari's Asteroids from 1979?in its own original dedicated cabinet?and Marvel vs. Capcom 2, which lets players choose from more than 50 different playable characters. One thing is missing from the retro feeling, however?players never run out of quarters and tokens. Instead, players simply pay one price for admission and enjoy unlimited arcade play. The Neutral Zone also has arcade games for sale, and the space can be rented for private parties on Sundays.
