Gorgoza Park is one of the most popular family attractions in Park City, especially for visitors with young children. The park features seven lighted tubing lanes, a Fort Frosty playground for children younger than 6, mini-snowmobiles and a small hill for little tubers. Individual ride tickets, as well as two-hour and four-hour passes are offered; Fort Frosty is free with a valid tubing ticket.
Families that visited said Gorgoza Park provided a nice break from the slopes and offered a fun way to entertain young kids for a few hours. Most recommended purchasing the two-hour or four-hour tubing passes and also said it was a good après-ski activity since the park is open until 8 p.m. Some reviewers found it costly – about $100 for a family of four for two hours – but most found it worth the money.
Gorgoza Park is not located along the free bus route, so you'll need to drive or take a taxi. If you're driving, the park is located 2 miles east of Parleys Summit off of Interstate 80. The park is open Monday through Friday from 1 to 8 p.m. and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, with extended hours during the holidays. Individual ride tickets range from $6 to $10, dependent on age, while two-hour passes range from $17 to $28. Mini-snowmobile rides cost $12 for 10 laps around the track. Entrance to the Fort Frosty playground costs $10 if no tubing ticket is purchased. Note that the park closes near the end of March or early April, depending on the snowfall at that time of year.
