This season, the Utah Grizzlies, fearsome ECHL vets, take to the ice led by the slicing skates of captain Nick Tuzzolino, who, along with assistant captain Cody Lampl, helms the ruthless checks of the team's newly acquired defenseman. As the brawny lineup pressures the Condors' defenses, goalie Andrew Engelage attempts to keep pucks from sneaking into the net, which fills with monarch butterflies after every team victory. The Salt Lake Tribune analyzes coach Kevin Colley's new roster, musing, "more size and more talent…beyond just scoring more, the Grizzlies hope to flat-out intimidate opponents." Since 1994, the ECHL premier AA hockey team has sent 200 players up to the NHL, a statistic nearly as delectable as the fresh-cut shaved ice for sale rinkside.
Run Jump-n-Play takes away Mother Nature's power to spoil a day of fun. No matter if it's hailing or raining, the haven gives kids a space to do all activities recommended in its name. Indoor playground sessions feature swings, slides, trampolines, and basketball hoops, whereas open inflatable play lets wee ones bounce and climb to their hearts' content. Not only can they play ball in inflatable arenas, they can also explore an inflatable ocean filled with sharks, dolphins, and treasure, or head to the Cosmic Glo arena for glow-in-the-dark bowling and golf. Taken as a whole, Run Jump-n-Play becomes not only a great place for children to burn off steam, but also a favorite spot to celebrate birthdays and work through an irrational fear of air.
