5 Winter Fun Hot Spots

Gateway Parks: Tubing in Spanish Fork

Melisa visited a new tubing spot in Spanish Fork called Gateway Parks. It has several hills, each offering a unique twist. You can get adventurous and hit some jumps, or play it cool and just enjoy the ride down. Admission is $30-$35, but if you go in the morning, you can get cheaper deals. Gateway Parks stays open until March.

Ice Skating at the Plaza in Logan

Heading north to Cache Valley, Melisa says the outdoor ice skating rink in Logan’s new town square is a cool experience. It’s $3 for the littles and $5 for older skaters, Melisa says to be sure to book a 90-minute session online before you go.

Redline Racing in Orem

If it’s just too cold and you want to have fun indoors, Melisa says that Redline Racing is the place to go. They have five different tracks that cater to drivers of all skill levels. Melisa says you can get up to 45 MPH, so it’s a thrill, but not super scary. Kids 48 inches and above can drive their own cart. Use the code “Osmond15” for 15% off.

Bonsai Bai Me in Pleasant Grove and Provo

Melisa recommends a unique activity—sculpting your own bonsai tree. Bonsai Bai Me has locations in Pleasant Grove and Provo. These DIY bonsai classes are a hands on, artistic activity. Pick a tree, pick a pot, and replant it with help from the experts. Learn all about bonsai making, trim your tree into unique shapes, and take home your own, specially crafted bonsai plant!

Thirst Drinks in Midvale

Thirst Drinks has a new location in Midvale! They are the only ones that offer their must-try cinnamon rolls. Plus, the Midvale location offers a free popcorn with every order, which, according to Melisa, is better than movie theater popcorn.
