Utah Olympic Park at Park City & Winter Bobsled Experience

The Utah Olympic Park was home to the 2002 Winter Games Bobsleigh, Skeleton and Luge as well as the ski jumping events. Olympic sliding tracks are hugely expensive to build and maintain, hence there are just in North America (the other two are at Lake Placid, USA and fastest (98mph) at Whistler, Canada) and only 16 worldwide. Olympian four-man bobsleigh teams complete 1.3km (0.8 miles) the Utah Olympic track (15 turns) in just 45 seconds and the Winter Bobsled Experience for three guests and a professional driver, is a scary ride starting from one third of the way down and reaching speeds of 85mph and generating up to 4-5 times the force of gravity. An incredibly thrilling and scary journey of a lifetime, the ride lasts around 45 seconds and is a scary yet fun experience for riders aged 16+ and 100 lbs or more in weight!
