A trip to Park City wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Utah Olympic Park, site of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games’ ski jumping, bobsled, luge and skeleton events. It is located just 5 miles from downtown Park City at Kimball Junction and is now the training center for our athletes, and even our own Park City local kids.
The Park features the Joe Quinney Winter Sports Center, which houses both the Alf Engen Ski Museum and George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum. Parking and admission to the museums and venue is free.
Summer and winter, the signature Comet Bobsled ride is the Olympic Park’s defining activity. With a seasoned bobsled pilot, experience the official 2002 Olympic Sliding Track including speeds over 60 mph and notable g-forces. We challenge you to count all the curves as you take this amazing ride. The summer bobsled is a built on wheels and runs on the concrete track. In the winter, the modified bobsled slides seamlessly down the ice resulting in an unmatched ride.
The Flying Ace All-Star Freestyle Pool Shows shouldn’t be missed…
One of the most unusual and thrilling summer events at Utah Olympic Park is the Flying Ace All-Star Freestyle Shows held weekends during the summer. You’ll watch Olympic and pre-Olympic athletes train as they spin, twist and splash into the pool.

For the more adventurous, the summer Comet Bobsled ride will rocket you down the track at speeds of 60 mph. Or, scare yourself on one of two ziplines, including one of the steepest in the world: the Extreme Zip. Glide down the mountain on the Alpine Slide, test your skills on the adventure ropes courses or the well-named Drop Tower, if you dare. To cool off during the hot summer months, challenge yourself on the public climbing wall, but wear a swimsuit, a bad step will send you down to the pool.
