Things to do for Active Kids
Utah Olympic Park Park City
Where are we going today?
The Utah Olympic Park is a great place for those active kids to not only have a great day enjoying a host of activities to challenge them, but you never know - they just might be inspired to win that next gold medal!
Year round, those kids over 5 can enjoy some pretty fun activities, where they can zip, climb and slide!
Over summer, there is SO much to do! There is a Canyon Adventure Course to challenge those older kids, or the Discovery Adventure Course for those as young as 5 who want to try and achieve something great.
There are rope bridges on the Summit Adventure Course, and speed to enjoy on the Alpine Slide. For those thrills, there is the Extreme Summer Tubing, and even the Extreme Zipline for those who want to try and fly!
From drop towers, to bobsleds, to even scenic chairlifts, the Utah Olympic Park has something to really give you that incredible family day out.
If you want to keep it a little more relaxed, there are museums at the park where you can learn all about the Olympic history and heritage, and the role that utah played in it.
For those who love to really get stuck into a challenge over winter, the park has sports such as G-skiing and mountaineering where you can really embrace what makes Utah beautiful.
There are also trails and mini mountain challenge suited to all ages to relax casually with, but if the shows get the kids going there are Freestyle classes and courses are available too.
You can take a guided tour too if you want - it just never ends, so we better get started!

I went to the park because I was part of the aerial skiing tryout camp. Everyone was really nice. They have zip lines for tourists and a free museum. No park better!

Really fun kids rope course and zip lines. Museum small but nice for parents. Bring a picnic and watch the athletes practice jumping.

Great fun for all. It is very cool to see the olympic legacy and every place that it has been in. I saw the Austrailian Ski Jumping team, or something like that, when I was there. It happened to be by coincidence, but you should try to go when teams are practicing there because it will make an already good experience much better.

Kids do Axis Camp every summer, the most positive experience for kids I have been around. The ropes course is a great fun workout and activity. The bobsled is awesome, only place in the world the public can take an Olympic Bobsled ride. WOW! Don't forget Sunday Flying Aces show.
