Amusement Parks & Adventure Activities

Whether you're in the mood for flying down a zip-line at 8,000 feet or it's time to beat the heat at one of the state's fantastic water parks, you can easily find spills and thrills for the whole family at a variety of amusement parks in Utah. The largest amusement park in the Intermountain West, Lagoon, offers 45 electrifying rides, a water park, and is complete with a lazy river and a lounging area to relax and soak up some rays. During the summer season, Seven Peaks Water Park in Salt Lake City will cool you down while you speed up on your way down one of its hair raising water slides during the summer season. If your family would like to have some out-of-the-sun fun, consider an afternoon of laser tag at Boondocks. Their 4,000 square foot two-story arena themed with massive galactic space murals, star troopers, and black light illusions is sure to send you away on a mission to save the universe!

Another idea to consider: maybe the Utah Olympic Park will scratch that itch as it sends you spiraling off its freestyle jumps with just a fraction of the worry. The venue offers a "Summer Freestyle Jump Intro Clinic" where you can get your feet wet in the sport of aerial freestyle skiing into its Olympic Freestyle Pool. If you visit the Olympic Park in the winter, maybe you'd like to take the ultimate ride in a bobsled with a professional pilot and reach speeds up to 80 MPH down the entire length of the Olympic track. If you work up the nerve, you could also try your hand at luge, skeleton, or a number of other wild winter sport activities.

With all of these great options for amusement parks in Utah, there is no shortage of scenery, recreation, family fun, and adventure! Purchase tickets to one of these awesome theme parks today for a family outing you’ll never forget.
