Ride the Comet Bobsled at Utah Olympic Park

Ride the Comet!

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.

Activities at Utah Olympic Park

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.

Great location, beautiful views!

We have stayed at Park Avenue Condominiums in both summer and winter. We have also stayed in various other properties in Park City. This is by far our favorite place to stay for many reasons. The first is the location. It is on a golf course with a lot of open space which is great for walking around. My kids like to hunt for golf balls. It is also next to the grocery store and great frozen yogurt spot. We walk to downtown most nights which is 3-5 minutes away and the ski resort is about the same. It’s also on the bus route if interested. We mostly walk around which is very easy. The second reason is the condo layout.  These are large units. They are large enough to separate parties out if desired (can be good with kids) but also has one large central area for gathering/cooking. A lot of condos we have stayed in are very dark and closed but these have a lot of natural light and are very open feeling. Our unit had a hot tub too which was nice. There are pool/tennis facilities which we use a lot….especially in the summer. We are so happy we found this place. Highly recommended!!!
