After restful nights in their satellite-TV- and WiFi-equipped rooms, guests at Comfort Inn meander down to the hotel’s dining room to fuel up for the day ahead with a complimentary hot breakfast. Post-breakfast, they can be spotted splashing in the indoor heated pool or taking off to explore nearby attractions such as Timpanogos Cave or Alta Ski Resort. A pet-friendly establishment, Comfort Inn welcomes furry companions and sassy cartoon sidekicks to tag along for an additional fee.
A mere half mile down the road from Comfort Inn, aquanauts of all ages revel in the crystalline waters of Cowabunga Bay. The '60s-themed park keeps bathing suits hydrated thanks to its sprawling assortment of attractions, including Cowabunga Splash, a six-story water play structure replete with bridges, tunnels, and upwards of 300 interactive water features. A fleet of nine water slides helps adventurers to meet their daily adrenaline quotas, and the gentle Cowabunga River ferries inner-tube riders along its lazy waters. Chefs bustle about the onsite Cowabunga Island Grille, silencing growling tummies with pizzas and burgers, and shaded cabanas can be rented for private dining and lounging.
Sportations connects amateur adrenaline jockeys to certified professional adventurers, drawing from a nationwide network of aeronauts and speed demons to introduce habitual pedestrians to the wonders of skydiving, ballooning, hang gliding, and stock-car racing. Thrill seekers can zipline across a forest canopy, hollering like Tarzan or taunting nearby birds until they agree to race. Helicopter tours ferry patrons skyward over landmarks and cityscapes, whereas paragliding adventures get up close and personal with blue skies and clouds. For most sports, Sportations accommodates groups of any size, from physics classes empirically proving gravity's existence to solo ballooning supervillains declaring dominion over all they see.
When the sun breaks through the clouds over Utah, it's an extra-exciting sight for the team at Nice Sky Adventures. That giant star blazing in the sky heats up the land below, creating thermal pockets perfect for powering adrenaline-boosting outings. Those excursions take the form of paragliding and hang-gliding flights, during which pilots and passengers ride those thermals to unparalleled views of mountainsides covered in verdant trees, snowy terrain, and one very lost pizza delivery guy.
Nice Sky Adventures starts clients off with tandem flights that pair novices with experienced pilots. From there, newly crowned flyers can relive their trip via photos and video, then continue with lessons to become solo pilots themselves.
A trio of black-belted Moras sisters lead the diverse fitness curriculum at Amys Martial Arts. Melany, Amely, and Samy blend the disciplined technique they’ve displayed in national, collegiate, and international martial-arts competitions with coaching and referee experience as they teach students aged 3 and older. Children's tae-kwon-do classes develop motor skills, balance, and a positive attitude, and tumbling sessions develop the sense of balance needed to roll, cartwheel, and handspring. Adults can explore the physical and mental benefits of tae kwon do's full-body workout or jump-start their heart rate with kickboxing, or imagine how they’d use tae kwon do to fend off a pack of wild rabbits.
Dan McManus discovered early on that his path through life wasn’t going to be an earthbound one. It was 1977, Dan was in his teens, and he had just taken his first hang-gliding flight. Since then, he has dedicated his life to the sport, soaring from cliffsides in the US, New Zealand, Central America, Costa Rica, the European Alps, and the Pyrenees of Spain. At Point of the Mountain Flight Park–Southside, Dan and Hildegard leads passengers on tandem flights over the beauteous Utah landscape. Passengers enjoy a blend of relaxing views and exhilarating rides on each trip, along with instruction on how to steer the giant wing and use the CB radio to signal airborne truckers.
