Utah Olympic Park
Home to the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, the Utah Olympic Park is open to sporting fans of all ages. Guided tours let you explore the top of the highest Nordic Jump, the world's fastest bobsled, luge and skeleton track or even watch aspiring Olympians train for the next Games. Tours are offered every day on the hour, first tour at 10a, last at 4p. All tours include admission to the Alf Engen Ski Museum/2002 Legacy Gallery featuring interactive and virtual exhibits including an Olympic downhill course. If a tour isn't exciting enough, jump into the action at 80 mph on a bobsled ride down the Olympic track with a professional driver, dropping 435 feet on the world's steepest zipline, or taking a luge, skeleton or Nordic jumping introductory camp.
While in Park City, we chose to visit the Olympic Park.
Suited for tourist we chose to do a "Gold Package". This was $75.00 pp and included the following. A guided tour and entry to the museum. A ride on the Comet or bobsled sled ride, Extreme Zip Line, Unlimited rides on the Ultimate Zip Line.
The Comet (Bobsled) ride was $65.00 pp so the purchase of the Gold package is a great value. The bobsled ride alone is worth $65.00. The bobsled holds three riders and a professional driver. We got up to 70 mph and hit corners in excess of 3.5 g�s.
The Extreme Zip line was also worth the money. Ride a chair lift from the Base of the Olympic Ski Jumps to the top of the 120K ski jump. Slip into a harness connected by a pulley wheel on a large steel cable. When all is secured and strapped in� they let you fly. At speeds up to 60 mph and zooming down the face of the ski jump the 450 ft ride goes by in a flash.
