As featured on the Travel Channel, Castle of Chaos conjures screams and scares for all those who enter its nightmarish realm. Spooks await visitors within the mansion, asylum, and dungeon at the Friday the 13th-themed Taylorsville location while the Riverdale facility coaxes guests into its creepy 3-D carnival and a haunted house modeled after the seven deadly sins. Riverdale participants can also settle into a coffin for a simulated journey from mortuary to graveyard or explore a menacing midway's games, live entertainment, and concessions. Continually rearranged rooms at both houses ensure that feng shui is maintained and repeat scare-seekers will frequently embark on new trips of terror.

Salt Lake City Guided Tour's brainy guides back up historical accuracy with a collective 30 years of experience, leading inquisitive sightseers and lore-hungry locals on educational promenades through Wasatch Front. A fleet of new vans transports sightseers through city streets as guides illuminate patrons with knowledge of the architecture, history, and primatology of old Fort Douglas, the olympic stadium, and pioneer trails during Salt Lake City Grand tours. Organ symphonies waft into auditory canals in the Mormon Tabernacle, and eyes set sights on the state capitol and old Union Pacific station, Disney's inspiration for its own train port. Alternatively, the Great Salt Lake tour lets craniums absorb the history and ecology of Great Salt Lake's sodium crystals and brine shrimp as eyes rove over Utah's wetlands, a refuge for migratory birds. Guides explain the flow of mineral salts that lends the sodium-rich lake its name, as well as fill in travelers on a competing theory that postulate its origins as Poseidon's kiddie pool.

For more than 60 years, the staff at YMCA Camp Roger has been developing programs that get kids and teens off the couch and in the great outdoors. In doing so, its aim is to help the kids develop social skills that can foster confidence, independence, and leadership. In addition to traditional sleepover camps—where 6–10 kids stay in cabins at night and practice mountain biking, archery, hiking, and arts and crafts during the day—the camp offers focused programs such as creative arts or horseback riding. And if the clan needs a break from the housecat’s despotic demands, it can attend a family camp over Labor Day weekend.

US Bus Utah's namesake vehicle is a common sight on the streets of Salt Lake City; in fact, it's almost impossible to miss. The open-topped bus snags sightseers from around SLC for hop-on, hop-off tours of local landmarks such as the Cathedral of the Madeleine, Hogle Zoo, and Clark Planetarium. The bus runs a continuous circuit from 9 a.m. until 5:30 p.m., seven days a week, giving sightseers a chance to catch a ride back from their adventures once they're done exploring.

Morning Star Balloons ushers cloud hunters toward their quarry, navigating the skies as transfixed guests float high above Utah's pristine mountainscape. The seasoned, FAA-certified pilots employ experience flying military jets, winning numerous hot air balloon competitions, and establishing dominance over out-of-control umbrellas as they confidently steer the colorful vessels to heights of between 500–1,500 feet. Groups of up to 12 soar above Park City’s lush landscape and during early-morning flights, with a complimentary champagne or nonalcoholic toast welcoming passengers back to solid ground. Despite its burgeoning fame through the TV shows The Amazing Race and Nitro Circus, Morning Star Balloons keeps a level head as it donates its services to local schools and charities.
