Friday: Adventure Park USA

Even with a free ticket for my son while my daughter stayed home with Mom, last year's <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORCRP013991" title="Six Flags Inc." href="/topic/business/six-flags-inc.-ORCRP013991.topic">Six Flags</a> expedition cost me more than $100 for bad park food plus innertube and locker rentals. Huge fun, but too hefty a price. This year, we saved a bundle at <a href="http://findlocal.baltimoresun.com/listings/adventure-park-usa-new-market">Adventure Park USA</a>, off I-70 near Frederick.<br>
<br>
For the 10 and under set, this place is heaven. It felt safe enough to let my 8-year-old son wander outside with his buddies, choosing among mini-golf, spinning teacups and water-squirting bumper boats. Inside, my kids loved laser tag, but my 5-year-old daughter found the rope course too scary -- it was 10 feet off the ground. Choosing from a limited menu, the three of us lunched for $20. Friends brown-bagged it that day, and nobody objected.<br>
