Park City, Utah is a place where families with kids will never run out of activities to do. There’s plenty to keep kids of all ages occupied, so “ennui” never figures into their vocabulary.
Take your kids to the five Park City attractions below for active and memorable quality time together:
Deer Valley Ski Resort – 2250 Deer Valley Drive South
Deer Valley is one of the most popular ski resorts for good reason. Its terrain spans six mountains, offering an endless variety of difficulties for kids and teens to develop their skills.
The ski resort also offers group programs for kids, so they can learn with peers and make new friends. The kids are grouped by age and rates start at $285 or the regular season rate.
Utah Olympic Park – 3419 Olympic Parkway
Built exclusively for the 2002 Olympic Winter Games hosted by Salt Lake City, the Utah Olympic Park is now a winter sports paradise. The park houses a 54-mile bobsled track and the infamous Nordic ski jump.
But even during the summer, there are lots to do here. The Olympic Park grounds are open to the public but the more thrilling attractions of the park require a day pass. Prices start at $70 for adults and $45 for kids. If your family wants to ride down the bobsled track, a separate ticket needs to be purchased for $80. Kids have to be at least 13 years old and 100 pounds to ride.
Flying Eagle Zip Line – 1310 Lowell Avenue
Get little ones to securely experience the thrills of zip line riding at the Flying Eagle Zip Line. Kids as young as three-years-old can enjoy the two-person ride – a one-minute-long zip down the line then back up to the starting point.
Online tickets for the ride cost $15 for kids 54 inches and taller, while smaller kids can hop on for $12. The cost for the ride is included if you opt for Park City Mountain Resort’s Adventure Day Pass, which is $77 for adults and kids 54 inches or taller and $47 for kids 53 inches and below if purchased online.
Park City Alpine Slide – 1345 Lowell Avenue
Another Park City Mountain Resort attraction, the Park City Alpine Slide, is a luge track that covers more than 3,000 feet and offers four different tracks to choose from. This structure was conceived with thrill-seekers in mind but carried out to put the hesitant at ease. Each rider slides down their chosen track on a cart, the speed of which can be adjusted according to comfort or daring. Aside from the adrenaline spike, the Alpine Slide also offers amazing views of the surrounding mountain resort.
Park City Museum – 528 Main Street
Before Park City was a ski resort town, it was a silver mining town. Its rich history is preserved within the halls of the three-story Park City Museum. This museum is an educational breather from the plethora of outdoor activities Park City offers. A one-hour tour through the museum is enough to discover the history on which Park City was built. Plus, kids can see the silver rush in context from the mining exhibits in the museum’s basement.
