Utah Olympic Park Ready For Summer

The Utah Olympic Park’s summer activities are open for the season.

Utah Olympic Park activity hours are 10:00 am to 6:00 pm through the end of summer. UOP Marketing manager Kole Nordmann says at the moment they have almost all their activities up and running.

“We’ll have extreme tubing running,” Nordmann continued. “Extreme zip line, freestyle zip line will be going. All of our rope’s courses are open. The drop tower is ready to go, our airbag jumps will be ready to go. 11 out of the 13 activities that we have will be a go for today, and we’ll add those other two very very soon.”

Nordmann says at the moment the Zipline Tour and Alpine Slide are not open yet but should be soon. He says they’re adding a shade structure to the entirety of the alpine slide.

“The reason that’s taking a little bit longer and it's not going to open up right away is just because of all the snow we've gotten this year,” Nordmann explained. “Just took a while for it to all melt away and get us some room in there so we could start working on it. We made some improvements to the zip line tour that will be coming online here in a couple of weeks. So, nothing really new but what's really great is we’ll have our full array of activities available here this summer.”

Nordmann says that people will be able to participate in multiple activities during a single day if they purchase a gold pass.

“With the exclusion of summer bobsled experience and guided tours, but you can come in and do things Ala carte so to speak,” Nordmann said. “You can come in and do any activity that you want. Just choose it and our guest services staff will help get you to that attraction. The best way to experience the park really is the gold day pass. Because that gives you access to everything for that day.”  

The Utah Olympic Park will also be home to a few events this year. On June 1st will be the Red Bull 400. The event is a 400 m race up the Nordic ski jump

Another recurring event is the Flying Aces showcase of freestyle Olympians and National Team skiers and snowboarders performing tricks as they jump into a pool. The show is every Saturday and Sunday at 1:00 pm Starting on Jun 22 through September 1st.

The first showcase coincides with another event, Olympic Day on June 22nd.

“International day to celebrate all things Olympics,” Nordmann continued. “There are celebrations that happen all over the world on that date. We want you to come out for that as well. We’ll have face painters, bounce houses, we’ll have our curling demonstration, we’ll do our laser biathlon demonstrations, the NAC's going to bring out some of their adaptive activities. So, that's going to be a really really fun day. That will be kind of the second official opening of summer, because once we start those pool shows then it really feels like summer.”

Nordmann reports that the popular Psicobloc climbing competition will not be taking place this year at UOP. Nordmann says the UOP and sponsors couldn’t work out a day to schedule the event, but he expects it will be back within the coming years.
