All rides closed for the season

Utah Olympic ParkAs of Monday, September 28th all summer ride operations at Utah Olympic Park are closed for the season. Xtreme zipline, Ultra zipline, Quicksilver alpine slide, and the Summer Comet bobsled will remain closed through the winter until next May. The end of summer operations always brings with it mixed emotions for park staff. The sadness of watching summer coworkers and friends take their leave is tempered by the relief most year-rounders experience knowing the big crowds and stressful days are once again behind them. Park Host, Bill Lesar says he’ll “miss the excitement of summer.” While fellow Host, Nancy Glagola is “looking forward to winter.” According to Host, Warren Allen, the end of summer ops always prompts the question: “Okay, what do we do now?”

Winter Comet bobsled rides are scheduled to begin in December. Reservations may be made starting in November by calling 435.658.4233.
