Inspired by the La Tomatina festival in Spain, Tomato Dodge is a combination 5K run and food-fight extravaganza. During the fun 5K, runners skirt tomato pits and ambush zones. Once across the finish line they strap on goggles and arm their hands with juicy produce. The large-scale tomato-hurling exhibition exclusively makes use of tomatoes that are over-ripe and too old to sell, giving them a final hurrah rather having them wind up directly in the trash. Every participant will receive a T-shirt, sweatband, and decal upon check-in. See Tomato Dodge's FAQ page for additional information.
As an adult, its hard to see a bounce house without releasing a sigh and wishing you could be inside, leaping to your hearts content. Sky Trampoline Arena's response: why not? This indoor recreation center houses heavy duty trampolines that stretch from wall to wall, giving bouncers of all ages a place to spring on the floor and flip into the air. You can fly across the zipline and land in a foam pit, scale a rock-climbing wall, or challenge your friends to a game of bouncy dodgeball. Bouncing on a trampoline doesn't just provide fun, it's also a thrilling way to exercise and burn calories at the same time. Trampoline exercise can reduce your overall stress, increase muscle strength, and improve balance, while giving you a superior physical advantage over our cat lords.
The caring faculty at Syracuse Dance Academy helps students develop confidence and transform raw talent into stage-ready choreography during classes for ages 18 months and older. The 7,000-square-foot facility holds three separate studios—one for ballet, one specifically for children's classes, and one exclusively for tumbling. Prima ballerinas can stretch their legs on bars lining a hardwood floor that is suspended to cushion the body during graceful leaps and misguided trust falls. In the children's studio, parents gaze from observation windows during classes or pile in front of the purple-curtained stage to enjoy in-house performances. During tumbling classes for boys or girls, a pit trampoline and 50-foot rod floor help spring tumblers into the air, and the 16-foot vaulted ceiling ensures they come down before hitting the stratosphere. At the end of the year, dancers from every class sashay onto the Val A. Browning Center for Performing Arts' stage at Weber State University for the end-of-year recital that creates a professional dance atmosphere.

Between adrenaline escapades, racers can settle excited stomachs with a shared scrumptious selection from the snack bar, or take a break from the exhilarations of reality with a galvanizing video game in the arcade. If two 10-minute races aren't enough of a track-tearing session, this Groupon can be upgraded to 15 minutes (an additional $5 per race), a 40-lap race (an additional $10 per race), or a 60-lap race (an additional $20 per race) for uncontrollable cart cravings.
