Utah Olympic Oval and Utah Olympic Park
It's hard not to notice that the ice of the 400-meter skating oval is steeped in history. Eight world speed-skating records and 10 Olympic records were set on the Utah Olympic Oval's ice during the 2002 Winter Games. Now, visitors can glide over the same surface during public skating sessions while gazing at the blazing times immortalized on the walls. Inside the comfortable, 65-degree facility, guests can also race around the perimeter of the ice on the running track, cheer on hockey players at two rinks, learn to skate during lessons, or send stones hurtling toward their friends during cosmic curling games.
Over at Utah Olympic Park, which was built for the 2002 Games, visitors can take a guided tour of the park and see where athletes competed in everything from luge to Nordic ski jumping. They can also participate in seasonal activities, including scaling an adventure course, shooting head-first down the Rocket skeleton track, and riding with a pilot in a Comet bobsled, which reaches speeds up to 80 mph and lets riders experience what 5 G-forces feels like. Additionally, visitors can see Olympic and development-level athletes training and call out words of encouragement, such as "Way to be competent at sports games!"
