Iceland Ice Skating Rink welcomed local skaters and hockey players for 70 years, until an arsonist’s match burned the facility to the ground in 2010. But, thanks to a committed community effort, volunteers got the facility back in operation in less than a year, clearing 1,000 cubic yards of debris, polishing and lacing 400 pairs of skates, and refreezing the rink’s icy surface. Today, the rink's instructors give back to the community that embraced them in their time of need, grooming aspiring figure skaters and teaching young hockey players to body-check dangerous-looking penguins.

Instructor Wendy Leduc trains students new to horseback riding with beginner lessons at Craigmont Equestrian Center. She instructs riding lessons that aim to make students as comfortable atop steeds as their decorated instructor. The Center also hosts lessons for advanced riders, teaching them how to ride safely and efficiently in the center’s covered arena, recently furnished with new sand, new lights, and a security gate to keep the school’s horses safe from antiquated horse rustlers looking to round up ponies and spirit them back to the 19th century.

Each summer, Sacramento becomes home to a giant dragon, slumbering deep in its lair. Anyone who steps inside vanishes from sight, and plummets through five stories of total darkness before reaching the mist-filled depths of a splash pool.

That wet, wild warren?known as the Den of the Dragon?is just one of more than 25 water attractions that sprawl across Raging Waters' grounds. The best way to survey all the options: drop a tube into Calypso Cooler, a lazy river that winds around the park's center in an 800-foot loop. From here, families can scope the landscape and plan out an exciting itinerary. For example:

  1. Start at the Den of the Dragon, then take a short walk to the Honolulu Half Pipe and attempt a few skateboarding tricks using an inner tube.
  2. Head to the other side of the park for high-speed slides such as the Cliffhanger, where two riders can race side-by-side.
  3. Explore the five-story Treehouse Reef?which surrounds younger kids in water slides and secret tubes?and submerge yourself in a 540,000-gallon wave pool that simulates the way the ocean swells whenever a whale tries to fly.

Some additional tips for first-time visitors: come before 1 p.m. for shorter lines; be sure to stop for a burger and fries at Coral Cove; and play a couple of games at the on-site volleyball court.

Fright Planet Haunted Theme Park's outdoor theme park acts as a library of the world's most potent phobias. Every year, cast members reimagine its catalog of haunted environs, crafting new sets, props, and characters to prey on guests. Its dedication to genuine scares calls for only the best actors and the most grisly scenery, which is constructed with the help of a former Disneyland artist and a bulldozer possessed by the soul of a 1700s architect.

The lineup includes eight attractions. Though the houses all have distinct themes and decor, they share two factors: a richly painted backstory and a population of live, ghoulish denizens. Staring toys line the shelves at Hobart's Doll Factory and tight passageways put the squeeze on those brave enough to enter Jatinga: The Forbidden Temple. Other experiences play on claustrophobic fears?for example, Buried Alive: The Ride shuts patrons into a coffin where they endure a simulated hearse ride, burial, and the chilling sound of worms calling dibs on their body parts.
