Utah Olympic Park played host to the bobsled, skeleton, luge, ski jumping and nordic combined events at the 2002 Winter Olympics. Today the facility houses both the Alf Engen Ski Museum and George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum. Visitors can learn about the history of skiing and see memorabilia from the 2002 Olympics. With very few bobsled tracks in the world open to the public, this is one of the few places where visitors can experience the thrill of riding down an Olympic bobsled track. With a seasoned bobsled pilot, experience the official 2002 Olympic Sliding Track, including speeds over 60 mph and notable g-forces. The summer bobsled is a built on wheels and runs on the concrete track. In the winter, the modified bobsled slides seamlessly down the ice resulting in an unmatched ride.
