This year, the Summer Olympic Games are taking place in London, England. If you can’t make it to see the games in person, it can still be exciting to watch the events unfold in the comforts of your own home. But if a ticket to London just isn’t in the works and you’re left craving some live Olympic action, come to Park City and enjoy the Flying Ace Freestyle Show.
Although the Olympic games taking place this year are the summer games, seekers can still find the same Olympic spirit and excitement at the Utah Olympic Legacy. One of the exciting events that you can watch is the Flying Ace Freestyle Show. Described as a “human fireworks show” Olympians and national-athletes in skiing and snowboarding soar up to 60-feet in the air to perform flips and tricks before coming down and splashing in a pool – all choreographed to music, of course. The show is about thirty minutes and runs every Saturday at 5 p.m. from June 9 – Sept. 1. The trip is a must see for families looking for a weekend activity.
Utah’s Olympic Legacy
Utah was the site of the 2002 Winter Olympic games and many events took place in Park City. So as to not forget the amazing event that graced Park City, the Utah Olympic Legacy was created. This is a non-profit organization that runs and maintains the Utah Olympic Facilities and gives the community a chance to participate and learn about winter sports and run family activities throughout both summer and winter.
Tickets can be purchased at the Utah Olympic Legacy museum.
