  • Rothko Chapel
    The 14 massive purple-black murals by Russian-born American artist Mark Rothko that fill the cavernous space at Rothko Chapel don't just contribute to the building's name, but also to its nature. "Stepping back, waves of subtle color difference appear across the broad surfaces—leading to an unmistakable impression of physical depth," says NPR's Pat Dowell about staring into one of the colorful canvases. The experience is often a transformative one, creating within some viewers the sensation of gazing into infinity. Commissioned by John and Dominique de Menil and designed with the input of Mark Rothko himself, Rothko Chapel was dedicated in 1971 as an independent, intimate non-denominational sanctuary. Since then, its renown has only grown; it now occupies a coveted spot on the National Register of Historic Places. Outside the Chapel, Broken Obelisk by Barnett Newman serves as a starkly elegant memorial to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And yet, for all of its inscrutable beauty, the chapel is also a place of action—a value echoed in the chapel's mission statement. Throughout the year, public programs including concerts, storytelling, lectures, and guided meditation tackle issues of injustice and human struggle. The Chapel serves as a place for a range of interfaith services for religious communities in search of space, hosting everything from holy days and spiritual celebrations to memorial services and wedding ceremonies. Groupon Celebrates Pride Month Over the last 50 years, the gay-rights movement in America has overcome tremendous obstacles to become a powerful voice for inclusion and diversity. Even as it has grown, the movement—like Groupon—is local at heart, and we applaud the commitment to real change that improves everyday lives. At Groupon, we are happy to add our voices to those celebrating PRIDE, their achievements as a social movement and a continued march to equality for the LGBT community. Plus, we love a chance to dig that rainbow wig out of storage. This month—and throughout the year—we salute our merchants and customers who support PRIDE and all efforts that promote dignity, respect, and equal opportunity. We're highlighting these merchants' deals with a special badge to show Groupon's pride in working with people who share our values.

  • Children's Museum of Houston
    While many children learn by performing hands-on tasks, school systems have yet to figure out how to incorporate gardens, imagination workshops, and towering aqueduct mazes into their budgets. With 90,000 square feet of hands-on exhibits, the Children's Museum of Houston, sparks creativity by allowing kids to explore 14 learning stations. Ranked No. 1 among the 10 best children's museums in the nation by Parents magazine, named one of the 12 best children's museums in the country by Forbes.com and one of the 10 best by USA TODAY, and voted Best Museum in 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 by the Houston A-List Poll, the museum has accrued a lot of praise. Exhibits include the interactive EcoStation, a solar-powered outdoor utopia with activities such as stream creation and leaf rubbing that inspire kids to think about environmental responsibility. At the Invention Convention workshop, kids can explore engineering possibilities with building blocks, propellers, and even basic robotics. The sprawling cityscape of Kidtropolis invites children to participate in a simulated economy. The experience requires them to earn paychecks, budget money on pretend debit cards, vote for political candidates, and learn how to obsessively check milk expiration dates at the onsite grocery store.

  • Track 21
    With the sound of fast-approaching engines roaring in your ear, you jam your foot down even harder on the gas pedal and narrow your eyes at the upcoming left-hand turn, determined not to let up even for an instant. If you do, there’s a good chance that your new view will consist of your competition gloating triumphantly while they zip past you on the track. You may only be driving a GT-5 Sodikart, and not a tricked-out racecar, but you absolutely refuse to let any of the other adult or—gulp—junior drivers beat you. Track 21 lets speed-demons careen around one of three indoor go-kart tracks at speeds of up to 40 mph as they try to edge past other karts, competing with fellow birthday partiers or coworkers to reach the finish line before it decides to become a finish wall. In case competition gets too fierce, the karts are surrounded by heavy nylon bumpers and rubber blocks designed to absorb impact from all sides. Friendly rivalries continue on foot inside Area 21, a two-story laser-tag battleground beset with fog, obstacles, and space-age scenery. Sharpshooters zap each other's targets in pursuit of a grander mission, such as capturing the opposing base or stealing the enemy's supply of light, before matches end and scores are tallied on a stats sheet. Glowing decor also illuminates a jungle-themed nine-hole mini-golf course, where gorilla and lion statues bask in the black lights. Track 21’s arcade demands timing and button-smashing dexterity from gamers, and a track-side casino sets up rounds of blackjack, poker, and craps.

  • Kids Party Zone
    Reservations/Appointments: Required Established: 2010 Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: Kids Pro Tip: Make sure children have socks so that they can enjoy the inflatables. Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Bounce houses Q&A with Sue, Manager When and how did you first develop a passion for your work? After having children of my own, I discovered how difficult it can be to find a nice, secure place for them to play and release some energy. Seeing the faces of the kids light up when they enter the inflatable room is the best part of this job. They enter the facility thinking it is just another business—until they see the inflatables and that's when the excitement begins. What is one fun, unusual fact about your business? We have an indoor inflatable room where kids can run around and have some fun without being outside in the heat. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? Arcade room is also part of the weekday play, and it doesn't require coins. On weekdays only, unlimited play runs Monday–Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Kids also receive a drink and a snack with their entrance during these times. Weekends are reserved for private parties.

  • Screamworld
    A bloody slaughterhouse. A strobe-lit maze patrolled by clowns. A zombie-infested bog. A room full of overdue utility bills. These are the most terrifying scenes humans can imagine, and many of them confront visitors to Screamworld, an attraction that stretches the haunted house experience across five uniquely spooky settings. Here, animatronic scares and disorienting lights lie in wait for groups, as do costumed actors seeking the perfect opportunity to spring from their hiding spots. Screamworld's performers don't shy away from offering an intense, frightening experience, and though the shrieks are all in good fun, the experience isn't recommended for children. Inspiring those thrills and chills is practically an art form for Jim Fetterly, the mastermind behind Screamworld. Fetterly has designed annual haunted houses since 1989, so he and his team pride themselves on their ability to leave visitors with racing pulses, sweaty palms, and thoroughly spiked adrenaline levels. And their dedication has not gone unnoticed—America's Best Haunts continues to select Screamworld as one of the top haunted attractions in the country, while the Houston Chronicle hailed it as "Houston's longest-running and arguably best haunted house."
