Putting requires intense concentration, which is especially difficult when you have an elephant standing over your shoulder. At Sport-N-Fun, miniature golfers putt their way through three 18-hole courses adorned with statues of exotic wildlife such as gorillas and giraffes. These distractions are one of the many obstacles on the terrain, where bank shots and undulating hills stand between players and holes-in-one.
Sport-N-Fun's other exhilarating Activities likewise vie for visitors' attention. Thrill-seekers zip around the curves and down the straightaways of the Go-Kart track, or leap skyward while securely harnessed on the bungee trampoline. In 7 batting cages, machines pitch balls toward batters at speeds of up to 85 miles per hour, offering hard ball or soft ball and a range of speeds for different skill levels. Inside, classic games blip and bleep as players frantically tap arcade buttons. Amidst all the action, GG's Pizza renews energy with servings of Pizza and Fountain Drinks.
In the mid-20th century, gymnasts developed a training tool that allowed them to rehearse their flips without fear of gravity. The mini trampolines that they used had an unexpected side effect, however: elation.
Today, Jump Station of Michigan straps visitors of all ages into these springy apparatus, outfitting them with a safety harness that is connected to stretchy elastic bands. The cords simultaneously provide lift and negate a harsh impact upon landing while propelling jumpers into thrilling leaps and flips. The experience even constitutes a stimulating cardio workout as heart rates increase during each jump. Groups can reserve the air-conditioned space for a private party, which includes unlimited jumping and games, and then head over to the Zap Zone next door for rounds of laser tag, glow golf, and go-karting.
Zap Zone's eight locations in Michigan and two locations in Canada each feature a unique combination of attractions—anything from bumper cars to the Jump Zone's cushioned obstacle course. In the laser-tag arena, both kids and adults demonstrate their teamwork skills by outscoring opponents in fast-paced games that take place inside black-lit mazes of neon-tinged hallways. Arcades also round out every location's attractions, tempting passersby to drop a few tokens on racing games and skee-ball, or a lot of tokens on the claw game filled with Fabergé eggs.
