Featured on ABC's Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in 2011, Bouncin Bins sells and rents colorful inflatable bouncers of every ilk, from giant slides to obstacle courses. An online catalogue helps party planners select and rent a range of high-grade vinyl inflatables for their celebrations. In addition to themed bounce houses, it also offers dunk tanks, water slides, and interactive inflatable games, such as boxing rings, bungee runs, and oversized sumo suits for wrestling or forcing people to respect your personal space on the train.
It can be tough to visit dinosaurs and outer space in the same day without a time machine and a rocket ship. But Visit Salt Lake's Connect Pass provides a loophole. It grants access to 13 Utah attractions, encouraging families to explore Salt Lake City and beyond. Those using the Connect Pass can see savings of up to 80% on combined admission costs.
At Clark Planetarium, for example, visitors go far beyond the Great Salt Lake and Earth itself, becoming dwarfed by the cosmos inside the Dome Theatre. The Leonardo Museum brings them back to civilization by merging science and creativity with exhibits such as Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out and a Pixel Playland where kids can manipulate electronic artwork.
Other venues emphasize the beauty and fun found in the natural landscapes of our home planet. Red Butte Garden's 100 acres of local flowers, plants, and trees includes scenic hiking trails, whereas the Utah Olympic Parks lets you choose one of three outdoor adventure courses. And, for those intrigued by animals, Utah's Hogle Zoo presents wildlife that ranges from big cats to sea lions who nuzzle their keepers, similar to the dinosaurs at The Museum of Ancient Life.
InflataPalooza brings an extra dose of fun to outdoor bashes with its colorful inflatables. Turrets with red tops rise around the perimeter of the castle bounce house, whereas a slide, climbing wall, and basketball hoop surround the castle-combo bounce house. And inflatable jumbo boxer gloves make for fun, safe sparring outdoors or indoors.
Classic Fun Center's Sandy location boasts a water park with four super-long slides helps kids cool off, while a dimecade lets visitors play more than 50 video arcade games for only ten cents per play. Big inflatables allow hours of bouncing, and 3D laser tag invites adults and kids ages 7 and older to chase each other in a glow-in-the-dark arena. The Layton facility shelters its various attractions in a pirate-themed playground. Guests can rack up strikes on the mini-bowling lanes or ascend a three-story rock wall. The park also hosts a bounce area with inflatable slides and obstacles courses, as well as an arcade with more than 50 games such as skee-ball and Deal or No Deal, where kids teach the computer how to pinky swear. Guests at Classic Fun Center's Riverdale location can cool off on the water park's four 300-foot slides, super-sized "fat" slide, kiddie splash ground, or inflatable slip-n-slide.
From birthdays and family reunions to school functions, All In Fun fosters excitement at festivities with large inflatables such as Moonbounces, castles, and slides.
