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.

Park Avenue Condos Unit 229 by Identity Properties

Best thing about Park Ave condominiums is location! it is adjacent to the free city shuttle bus stop and very close to Park City Mnt for skiing, and only a short ride to the Main street activities and restaurants. It is also located right across the street from Fresh Market grocery and Rite Aid and Starbucks and McDonalds, and just a short walk to the state liquor store and Squatters Grill and Pub, which is very tasty.

Our condo was perfect for us.

We stayed in Jupiter Inn condominium #11 from Jan 31- February 4 and it was great. We stayed at the Jupiter Inn 2 years ago and chose it again because we remembered how nice it was.  The shuttle service was exceptional. Brad was outstanding! The jacuzzis were very clean and felt great after a day of skiing. Our condo was perfect for us. We loved the bedding and the full kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances! We will stay at the Jupiter Inn again next year when we return to Park City!
