Adding water results in less floury biscuits, larger foam dinosaurs, and slides that won't give a shirtless cousin friction burn. Douse yourself in smooth-moving good times with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a Utah Pass of All Passes at Seven Peaks Water Park, with locations in Salt Lake City, Provo, Trafalga Fun Center in Lehi, and Trafalga Fun Center in Orem (up to a $59.95 value). Click here for a full list of the outings, activities, and events included in the pass.
The water kingdoms at Seven Peaks' multiple locales thrill hydrosplorers as they cascade down water slides, frolic through wave pools, or lounge leisurely on lazy rivers. Scan the attractions at Seven Peaks SLC then plummet off the Cliffhanger, a quick, curvy slide that ends with a sudden 5-foot drop into a crystalline pool followed by a frenzied hunt for the sandwich you accidentally rode down with. The Provo location's hydro playground scoffs at summer heat with more than 10 unique slides and relaxing, shade-dealing cabanas. Trafalga Fun Center doubles the fun with double the locations, entertaining guests with the Lehi location’s go-karts and laser tag or helping fans tell which baseball players are actually holograms with the Orem location’s batting cages and sense-sharpening XD Theater.
Groupon holders can also dust off wintertime transportation with a trio of snow-aided activities. Peaks Ice Arena in Provo beckons skaters to glide atop the same ice traversed by Olympians and the animatronic replica of Dick Button during the 2002 Winter Olympics. Downhill thrillseekers can chase mach speeds at Wolf Mountain, where skiers and snowboarders of all levels tear through green-square or black-diamond trails, or catch air on the pipes at the snow park.
Today’s Groupon also entitles holders to athletic enjoyment at the hands of five area teams. Thrill to the arcade-style action of three Utah Blaze arena-football home games or sate baseball desires with a season pass to the Ogden Raptors’ home games or unlimited admission to the Orem Owlz's 2012 home games. Cheer on Utah Valley University’s athletes of tomorrow and steam-powered referees of yesterday at home games for any of the Wolverines’ teams or the Utah Grizzlies during four games.
