Outdoor playgrounds are all fun and games until basketballs deflate, milk cartons spill, or Red Rover sends rabies right over. Embrace indoor explorations with today’s Groupon for family fun at The Hollywood Connection in West Valley City. Choose between the following two options:
• For $5, you get a one-day wristband (up to a $19.95 value) good for unlimited rides, mini golf, and skating, as well as 12 arcade tokens (a $4.00 value) (up to a $23.99 total value).
• For $29, you get a three-month season pass good for unlimited rides, mini golf, skating, and 12 arcade tokens each visit (a $287.40 value). A season pass also includes two Buddy Passes for half off a guest's day pass.
Merrymakers romping through The Hollywood Connection's lush scenery and miniature sets discover an abundance of indoor amusements, including a dragon coaster that snakes ferociously around a to-scale version of the Hollywood hills. Mini-golfers play through myriad themed courses, putting tumbleweeds through the Wild West, firing dimpled cannonballs in a nautical set, and plugging prehistoric volcanoes, a function once served by tar-coated pterodactyl eggs. Bumper cars sow controlled chaos amid colliding motorists; the soft play area's tubes, towers, and slides afford young clamberers gentler thrills. Groupon customers can use their 12 arcade tokens on Hollywood Connection's more than 100 games, which entice players with the promise of prize tickets and a deeper understanding of Pac-Man's fears and desires. Should legs grow restless again, the skating center lets roller and in-line skaters make the rounds as they react to dancing lights and DJ beats.
While not included in today's Groupon, a 50s-themed diner, laser-tag arena, ice-cream parlor, and 15-screen Carmike Ritz movie theater also share space in the 160,000-square-foot facility.
The Hollywood Connection
Bumper cars collide, mini roller coasters swerve along tracks, and tubes weave around slides at a soft play area inside The Hollywood Connection's 160,000-square-foot facility. Roller or inline skates glide to pop and rock tunes in a rink illumined with cyber lights and IntelliBeam, and the laser-tag arena glows in neon paint, black lights, and fireflies that carry demands across enemy lines. Elsewhere, golf balls tumble down greens toward 18 holes with themes such as the Old West, an underwater cove, and the prehistoric era. An arcade hosts more than 100 driving, racing, and combat-simulator video games, and a 15-screen Carmike Ritz movie theater treats up to 2,000 viewers to new releases on digital, 3-D-capacity screens. Visitors can reenergize between attractions with popcorn or snow cones from the snack stand (open Friday–Sunday), nab cones from the ice-cream parlor, and shape stacks of nachos into pompadours at the '50s-themed diner.
