Miner's Maze Adventureland is peppered with numerous exhilarating and family-friendly attractions, including a new multi-level ropes course where guests can climb and swing at up to three stories in the air. The course features challenges easy through difficult, and participants are fully secured to a track to ensure safety at all times.
Down below, a whistle shrieks as the Rio Golden Railroad train chugs around the park, and children shout as they navigate the park's namesake maze, a 5,000-square-foot, two-level labyrinth that occasionally hosts squirt-gun contests. At the Water Walkerz attraction, people climb inside big, inflatable spheres to zip across the surface of a pool without sinking or bumping into an oil tanker. Both the Magic Mountain Climbing Wall and the Silver Spring Bungee help guests reach new heights, the former with a three-story rock climbing wall and the latter with a bungee cord and a trampoline, along with the Magic Mountain Mine Shaft vertical webbed maze.
In addition to its year-round activities, the park features seasonal activities, including an annual Easter golden egg hunt and kid-friendly Halloween events.
It's hard to make room for nearly 8,000 wagging tails, 16,000 wandering eyes, and 32,000 batting paws, but Foothills Animal Shelter always finds a way. Due to its open-admissions policy—which means that no animal is turned away—the shelter welcomes roughly 8,000 homeless animals per year, treating them to housing and the attention of its professionals and volunteers. Once inside, the animals are given sanctuary, shots, and the chance to steal the hearts of potential adopters with their puppy-dog eyes.
But the caretakers at Foothills Animal Shelter don't just wait for needy pets to find them. They also perform such preventive measures as neutering, spaying, licensing, and vaccinations in order to ensure that pets with homes remain healthy and out of harm's way. This motive also drives the shelter's microchip services, which provide electronic identification should pets become lost, and training that teaches animals to follow commands and avoid white outfits after Labor Day.
