Adventure PARKS

UTAH OLYMPIC PARK  |  3419 Olympic Pkwy  |  Park City

The Utah Olympic Park offers endless options for summertime adventures, from tubing and slides to ziplines, airbag jumps, and rope courses. The best way to enjoy the UOP offerings is through the Gold Pass, which provides wide access to most of their courses, rides, slides, etc. Single-activity tickets are available in person only as venue capacity allows.

ALPINE SLIDE  |  The Alpine Slide is one of the most thrilling tracks imaginable, offering breathtaking views of the Snyderville Basin as it moves through countless straightaways, drops, and banked curves. 

AIRBAG JUMPS | Visitors can experience the thrill of being a stunt person in the movies with Utah Olympic Park’s Airbag Jumps. Choose from three different platforms — 5 feet, 10 feet, and 15 feet — and leap onto your back into the giant airbags below.

ACTION TOWER | Introducing UOP's latest attraction: the Action Tower! This tower offers a thrilling variety of activities, including tubing, an airbag jump, and a slide. The Action Tower is sure to keep young adventurers coming back for more.
