Utah Olympic Park

 

 

About a 15-minute drive from the center of Park City is the Utah Olympic Park, a competition venue used during the 2002 Olympic Winter Games. Now open all year round, the site features a range of Olympic-themed sporting attractions. Whether you want to catch a cast of professional athletes in training, experience first hand the top-end speed of a bobsled, learn the ins and outs of the luge and skeleton, or simply take a guided tour of the Olympic competition locations, you’ll be well taken care of. During the summer you can soar sky-high on a 500-foot zip-line, rip down an enormous alpine slide, test out the Comet bobsled ride, and take in some truly entrancing views.

 

Alpine Coaster

 

 

The Alpine Coaster found at the Park City Mountain Resort offers a rousing combination of breathtaking scenery and a high-speed tumble down a steep mountainside on a toboggan-style car. It really is a rollercoaster with a difference: the elevated track weaves through more than a mile of gorgeous emerald green and sparkling white wilderness – depending on when you ride – with enough twists and turns to rattle even the hardiest thrill-seeker. Being in control of the speed at which you travel makes this a particularly unique attraction of its kind. The weather can affect the coaster’s opening times.
