Built for the 2002 Winter Olympics, the Utah Olympic Park is now a multi-use facility for both Olympic hopefuls and recreational tourists.
Construction of the park began in 1994, with the intention that it would be used for whatever Olympic Games Salt Lake City won – they didn't yet have the 2002 Games. Once their bid for the 2002 Games was chosen, plans for the still-under-construction park were altered and expanded. The park was host of the bobsled, skeleton, luge, ski jumping, and Nordic combined events during the 2002 Winter Olympics.
Today, athletes still train at the Utah Olympic Park, using the original ski jumping and bobsleigh facilities, but it's also a major draw for recreation in the area. There is an adventure ropes course and a bobsled ride to keep you entertained during the winter, and summer activities include a summer bobsled ride, a stainless steel alpine slide, and the world's steepest zipline. There are also two museums at the park as well as a day lodge.
The Utah Olympic Park is free to enter, and the museums and hiking trails have no admission fee, either. Guided tours of the facilities are $10 per person ($5 for students/seniors), bobsled rides are $200 (must be 16 or over), zipline rides are $20, and the adventure courses range from $15-20. The park and museums are open daily from 9am-6pm.
