Fodor's Expert Review Park City Mountain Resort
In the warmer months, the resort transforms itself into a mountain amusement park, with attractions such as the Alpine Slide, zip lines, Alpine Coaster, and a climbing wall. The Alpine Slide begins with a chairlift ride up the mountain, and then special sleds carry sliders down 3,000 feet of winding concrete and fiberglass track at speeds controlled by each rider. Two zip lines offer high-flying adrenaline rushes as riders strap into a harness suspended from a cable. The gravity-propelled Alpine Coaster (which operates year-round) zooms through aspen-lined twists and turns at speeds up to 35 mph. The climbing wall features five different routes from which to choose. There's also a miniature golf course, trampolines, an adventure zone for younger children, and some of the West's best lift-served mountain biking and hiking.
