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.

Sun Hills Golf Course, which is ensconced in the shadow of its surrounding hills, unfurls over 18 holes of bentgrass greens and lush, rolling fairways to challenge club-wielders on its par 71 course.

For technique tips, guests can stealthily spy on the competing clubbers traversing the fairways and can browse the on-site pro shop for clothing, equipment, and golf blooper reels with optional caddy commentary (shop items not included with today's deal).
The Junction City Roller Dolls—a four-team Women's Flat Track Derby Association league—whip fans into a frenzy, earning kudos from In This Week along the way. With playful costumes and sassy names, three local squads—the Trainwrecks, After Shocks, and Hilltop Aces—will turn the Davis Conference Center into a playground of rebel yells and impromptu games of Red Rover. Groupon holders can grab trackside seats to watch blockers, such as Dominique Trix, rattle rivals with fierce hip-checks and shiver-inducing laser vision, or point-scoring jammers, such as Malibu Harpy, weave through packs of oncoming skaters as they waggle their tongues at the opposing team.
Gangrene Film Festival has been ground zero for the short-film community for 15 years, showcasing comedic vignettes from independent filmmakers from around the world. And each year, the festival gets weird with live entertainment that coalesces around a single theme. While 2013, for example, featured rock-and-roll hits played on tubas, the 2014 edition of Gangrene celebrates a space-lounge motif with a 20-piece big band playing the Latin-tinged, space-age lounge pop of composer Juan Garc?a Esquivel.
After the film festival itself triggers its last giggle fit, the Gangrene Film Festival Creative Symposium takes over. Leaders in a variety of media, including writing, music, filmmaking, and visual arts, host seminars about how to make money in their industry. Presenters include fantasy novelist Paul Genesse, who wrote The Golden Cord, short-film screenwriter Blake Casselman, and filmmaker Ali Barr.
