In Draper, Utah, just south of Salt Lake City, theres a family fun park called Boondocks. There’s Go-Karts, Bumper Boats, Mini-Golf, LaserTag and a huge arcade. Costco sells discount unlimited passes and over the past few months we slowly collected 3 tickets and decided this last weekend would be the best time to go. We invited Rachel’s sister, Bekah, to join us. We got there about 12:30 and immediately started with the bumper boats! These are pretty cool as they include water cannons on each one. So we get to bump and spray! IT was fun and got us cooled off. Bekah arrived and we went to do our first lasertag game. This was the first time we all had played the game. It was great! You put on this vest that tracks your score and lets you get shot up. THen you run around the arena where there are pillars and its all dark with blacklights so it’s just a lot of fun. Even Wyatt had a total blast! We ended up playing lasertag 2 more times that day. We rode the go-karts and played some of the arcade games. There was a huge climbing/jungle gym thing where Wyatt had a total ball playing in.
We headed out at about 6:30 to get dinner and watch a movie. Rachel and I saw Get Smart and Wyatt and Bekah watched Wall-E. Get Smart was so good! It was so funny in parts we couldn’t hear the following lines! Great movie, go see it! After the movie got out around 9:30, we decided to head back and play mini-golf. We did this and found we had about 15 mins until closing time at midnight. They had one final game of LaserTag starting, we rushed in there and played. It was a great time and very fun. The only negative part was when some bigger kid trampled over Wyatt and never helped him up or anything. He is ok and just got a little scratch on his forehead.
We totally enjoyed ourselves and if you are ever around and looking for a fun time and not too costly, I highly recommend the fun and enjoyment of Boondocks!
