Kids of any age don’t have to go far to find fun things to do in the Cache Valley. From go-carts to bowling, amusement park rides to racquetball courts, roller-skating to laser tag, the bounty of attractions is bound to bring out the kid in you.

The Logan Celebration Centre, which opened in August 2006, offers big thrills on rides created by S&S Worldwide Inc., the Logan-based manufacturer of the world’s premier amusement park rides.

“The Sonic Boom is the tallest drop ride in the world,” says Josie Beth Archibald, LCC’s marketing and events coordinator. “It’s a drop of 357 feet – a huge thrill.”

Even so, it’s not LCC’s main draw. “Hands-down, our most popular attraction is the go-carts,” Archibald says.

Elsewhere in the valley, Funatics brings in the college crowd with larger-than-life X-Box Halo tournaments on floor-to-ceiling screens, air hockey and pool tables, black-lit miniature golf and live entertainment.

For the fitness-minded, the Logan Community Recreation Center has basketball, racquetball and tennis courts, a weight room, indoor track and a batting cage.

The Logan Aquatic Center has two water slides, a diving well, a leisure pool and a lap pool.

The Ultimate Sports Arena is the place for sports enthusiasts with its indoor soccer field, climbing gym and pro shops. And the Willows Golf Park in Providence offers 18 holes of miniature golf.

The Cache Valley Fun Park has roller-skating, bowling, laser tag and the largest indoor soft playground in northern Utah – grown-ups allowed.

For something less demanding, yet just as interesting, take a stroll through the Willow Park Zoo.
