Park City hosted tons of events for the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games. The Olympic spirit lives on at Utah Olympic Park—a unique year-round destination for high-speed thrills, world-class sports facilities, and historical exploration.
Events and activities are available during both the winter and summer seasons. You can explore free exhibits and partake in one-of-a-kind adventures any time of the year.
A unique gravity-powered roller coaster, the alpine slide is a huge stainless-steel track equipped to provide you with a smooth, scenic, and exciting tour of some of the most beautiful landscapes in Park City. Speed through straightaways, drops, and turns as you descend from the mountain in style. It’s the best slide you’ve ever been on.
Looking for even more information about the alpine slide? We have an entire page dedicated to it. You can find it here.
Test your strength, agility, problem-solving skills, and courage on a suspended obstacle course. Guests are secured to safety lines and then presented with a series of nets, bridges, wires, and other features designed to give your body and brain a full workout. For the daring, Utah Olympic Park offers courses up to 55 feet off the ground. They aren’t all so intense, with child-friendly courses appropriate for little limbs and tiny hearts that only take youngsters a mere 10 feet from terra firma.
You can’t go bungee jumping at Park City’s Olympic park, but you can get pretty close. The drop tower starts with a fun zip line excursion before strapping guests to a 65-foot resistance cable and letting them drop safely to earth. It’s a little less intimidating than a full-blown bungee jump while still offering the feeling of a controlled fall.
Get in touch with your inner stuntman. Leap into a large, puffy airbag from the height of your choosing to get a taste of action-movie excitement. You can leap from five, 10, or 15 feet onto your back in total safety. Get a taste of pure gravity and walk away without a scratch. Just remember, no flipping allowed here. It’s safer for everyone that way
Other Summer Options:
Many of your favorite winter activities are also available during the summer. The bobsled trades its blades for wheels to run on concrete once the ice melts. The extreme tubing jumps are adapted to glide without snow thanks to innovative track material and water. And the zip lines work just as well in any weather. Museums are open all year round. You haven’t missed out on these Park City Olympic adventures just because of sunny days.
