Comet Bobsled Ride at Utah Olympic Park
Relive the 2002 Winter Olympics by riding a modified bobsled that rolls on the track’s concrete surface. Join a professional pilot and race speeds up to 60 mph, all in less than a minute. The bobsled track was used for bobsled, skeleton, and luge events during the 2002 Salt Lake Winter Games. Riders must be 13 years of age or older and at least 100 lbs to ride. Are you ready for your Olympic minute?
Alpine Slide at Park City Mountain Resort
Park City Mountain is home to one of the longest slides in the world. With over 3,000 feet of luge-like track, race friends and family as you glide side by side. With four tracks to choose from you can slide all day long. It’s like your favorite roller coaster but with beautiful mountain scenery. Visitors must be 48” or taller to slide by themselves.
