Best Three Must-Experience Outdoor Outings In Mesa

By Blake Jacobs

The city of Mesa has a lengthy listing of awesome areas to see if you are on a vacation-in fact, this is not the third major city in Arizona for nothing! If you are sick and tired of going through the typical tourist activity of walking, sight-seeing, shopping and eating, then Mesa is the excellent place for you with its various physically-inducing activities. Make sure to give yourself and your loved ones at least a day for each of these spots for a full experience.

From the months of May to September, it is perfect to take full advantage of the waters of the Salt River for you and your children to go tubing down its waters. Tubing down the Salt River is a tradition in Mesa primarily because it does not have any beaches. For about $15, you can rent a tube for the day and float along the river for roughly 2 to 6 hours. It is advisable that you hop on a weekday as weekends are very congested and could even be riotous.

To reach the destination, drive your car to Beeline Highway 87 toward Fountain Hill then pass Shea Boulevard to the Saguaro Lake turnoff, turn right and you are headed right at the Salt Lake River Tubing. From Saguaro Lake, it would take around 10 miles before you get to the Salt Lake Recreation Area so be sure that your automobile is in perfect condition by having it checked at any of the Mesa Auto Repair shops.

Second on the list is a visit to the Stratum Laser Tag. Here, you can carefully shoot your close friends with a laser gun inside a tag arena. You will not need any specific equipment as this will be supplied when you go for a session.

Players are given with a vest that contains particular shooting target areas as they roam the massing 13,000 square foot laser tag arena. Up to 60 people may possibly participate in at any with time for a game of 20 twenty minutes. With 15 different levels, towers, bridges and ramps, there is more than enough space to break free from the shooting and to open laser fire on any player. After each recreation, you will be supplied a score sheet of your status, the number of times you were hit not to mention the hits that you have done. Soon after the pastime or in between games, the arena includes a snack bar and an arcade.

In the Fighter Combat International, you can take your shot at becoming a pilot as you man your own plane into the skies. Based at the Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa, you can twist through air stunts without any prior flying experience. With a coach, you will be guided through a number of flying menu options to choose from. You can go for the aerobatic stunts or enlist for an air combat maneuvering in which you will find out about the concepts associated with aerial aerobatic combat. Yes, combat. Associated with a second ‘pilot’ you will be involved in addition to your instructions, in an aerial ‘combat!’

Be sure that you have stored enough for this flight experience as the Power Rides and Super Rides start from $450 with Air Combat Missions starting from approximately $750. This does not appear in a bargain but yet is in truth an event of a lifetime. Just don’t forget almost everyone may have ridden a plane although not a handful have flown one-specially a combat plane!
