Concierge.com's insider take:

This 389-acre facility is an official U.S. Olympic training site (several 2002 Olympic events were held here), but it's also a playground on steroids that includes swooping ski jumps and a twisty, turn-y bobsled, skeleton, and luge track. While athletes are still seriously prepping for Gold here, virtually everything is open to the public, either for gaping or for participating. In winter, you and two pals can feel 5Gs as a pro bobsled pilot zooms you down the track at up to 80 mph. Or try a 50-mph skeleton ride—belly down, face first—by your lonesome. Come summer, visitors can experience the world's steepest zip line and rocket down the alpine slide. True adrenaline junkies can sign up for introductory clinics in aerials (now there's a cool way into the pool) and other sports. The more mild-mannered can safely peruse the park's museum, watch films of Olympic events, and see costumes, medals, and the giant buffalo made of off-white silk used in the 2002 opening ceremony.—Updated by Sarah Tuff
