Prepare yourself for heaps of Father's Day fun:
In a salute to dads and in celebration of Father's Day, dads will receive free admission to The Great Escape on Sunday, June 18, 2006, when accompanied by a child under 48" tall.
That sounds truly excellent ---provided that your kid is under 48 inches tall, right? According to the Centers for Disease Control's growth chart, kids usually reach 48" sometime between the ages of six and nine. You dads who have a tall six-year-old won't feel so proud when you're shelling out $40 for admission. And if your kid is ten or eleven? Fuggetaboutit.

But hey, aren't we missing the true spirit of Father's Day? If you were a good dad, you wouldn't mind spending the money. And if you were a great dad? You'd spend $449 for the family to stay overnight at the new Great Escape Lodge and Indoor Waterpark.
