Park City is a ski resort, but we were there in June. Not wanting to lose revenue in the summertime the Park City Mountain Resort has been very innovating in drumming up new business. They have developed what is known as the Alpine slides. In addition to the Alpine slides there is also a Alpine coaster, mini-bungee jumper, a rock wall, mini-golf, mini-carousel, mini-train, and a children’s airplane ride. An all day pass for adults is $70 dollars ($35 for kids up to 46 inches). Depending on your time there is a definite argument to just buying individual ride tickets.
The coaster was my favorite ride, but for most of the day it was broken. In fact in the end AJ and I ended up hiking down the mountain because the life broke down. The ride that we spent the most time on was the Alpine slide. To get to the top of the slide you ride up a six person ski lift. It takes about 15 minutes to ride to the top. It only takes 5 minutes to ride the tobbagan back down. You completely control your speed down the mountain by way of a little red pulley. Needless to say it can be very harrowing. Luckily AJ and I didn’t have any spills, but we did see two other people fall off the track (not very advisable).
All in all it was a fun day, my biggest suggestion is to use sunscreen. It might not seem very hot, but you can and will get sunburned.
