Park City Mountain Resort

Park City Mountain Resort Review

In the warmer months, the resort transforms itself into a mountain amusement park, with attractions such as the Alpine Slide, Zip Rider, Alpine Coaster, and Little Miners' Park. The Alpine Slide begins with a chairlift ride up the mountain, then special sleds carry sliders down 3,000 feet of winding concrete and fiberglass track at speeds controlled by each rider. The Zip Rider is 60 seconds of adrenaline rush as riders strap into a harness suspended from a cable for a 500-foot vertical drop along 3,000 feet of track. The gravity-propelled Alpine Coaster (which operates year-round) lacks the inversion of traditional roller coasters, but zooms through mountainous twists and turns at speeds up to 35 mph. The Little Miners' Park has children's rides. There's also a miniature golf course, climbing wall, horseback riding, trampolines, a human maze, and lift-served mountain biking and hiking.
