Don’t you hate those cold winter months when the kids are cooped up inside? They need a place to burn off their energy, but the thermometer is stuck below freezing. We’ve rounded up some great activities for your kids that will get them out of the house. They’re sure to have a blast and sleep well at night!
**We are sad to share the Funtopia is coming January 30, 2020. Visit while you still can! This is one of our favorite spots because it is such a unique place. Funtopia is a huge climbing gym for kids, and the great thing is that the ropes are automatic belays. So they can climb as high as they want, then when they are ready to come down, they just push off the wall and down they’ll come. We also love how friendly and helpful all the workers are at Funtopia. Perfect for ages 5 and up. Located in Lehi.
Airborne has two locations in Utah, one in Lindon and one in Draper. We have visited the Lindon location, but they are very similar. This place is a trampoline obstacle course. There are lots of open trampolines, a dodge ball area, basketball dunking spot, but we loved that their was an obstacle challenge course for kids ages 12 and up. This makes Airborne great for kids of all ages.
Fly High Adventure Park is located in Ogden, and we loved how many fun things there were to do here for all ages. There is dodgeball, tons of different trampoline jumping areas, a few obstacle courses, and a foam pit. This is definitely an adventurous place and fun for everyone.
Obstacle Warrior Kids wears me out, as well as my kids. There are different challenges to pass off as you move through the courses, and we love that it pushes our kids to keep trying things that are hard. There are different areas based on age, too.
We love going to the Preschool Playtime at Get Air Hang Time because the little kids can jump everywhere and it’s not crowded. This trampoline park is fun anytime, though, and we especially love the big pits for jumping. There are 4 different places to try your flips and jumps!
Our younger kids love Kangaroo Zoo. This warehouse is full of bounce houses and bounce slides. They run through the large room over and over again trying all the different bounce houses. Our older boys have fun, too, but it doesn’t hold their interest quite as long as the 8 and under crowd!
Our kids are always worn out after swimming because they play so hard and have tons of fun! We have two favorite indoor pools that we spend a lot of the winter visiting when we need to get out of the house for a bit.
- Lehi Legacy Center Pool: We love the big splash cup, and the fact that the pool is mostly shallow. They have a great toddler area.
- Provo Rec Center Pool: We love the fun slides, climbing wall, basketball hoop, and cliff jump.
- Cedar City Aquatic Center: We love the sliding pillow, the slides, and the play area.
- We have also heard that the Layton Surf and Swim is really fun, but we haven’t been to visit yet!
