“Nice break from skiing, but a bit pricey”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We came to Gorgoza Park to take a midweek break from skiing/boarding at Sundance, about 45 minutes away.... I would've rated it a 4, but the snow was slow that day as it was sunny and in the 40's on the 1st of April.... But, i can see this being a thrilling ride on mid-winter snow.... Having said that, we paid 8 bucks for a single ride (a bit steep, IMO...no pun), with the option of upgrading to a 2 or 4 hour session (they advised us the snow was slow and gave us that option)..... Needless to say, our small boys thought their ride was lame and wanted to ride the mini snowmobiles instead.... It was 10 bucks for 10 laps around a tiny oval track, BUT our boys absolutely LOVED riding those snowmobiles! So, despite the priciness of the snowmobile riding, it was worth it for them.....

So, all in all, Gorgoza Park kinda reminds me of the little go kart tourist traps here in the Midwest.....nevertheless, it's good for a few hours to break up your ski trip. Just be aware it's pricey for what you get and be mindful of the snow conditions.....

“For those days off...”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

I lived in Park City for ~20 years and regularly had house guests who came during the winter to ski. On the third or fourth day when guests' legs needed a rest day, we'd drop them at this place for a day of tubing. As is the case with so many attractions in PC, it's a bit pricey. However, it's good for kids and super-controlled. The only disadvantage is that it's a bit out of town on I-80, so if you're staying around Deer Valley or PCMR, it's not just right outside your hotel.

“Great fun”
Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

We returned to Gorgoza park for the first time in 6 years and were pleased to find it just as charming as the first time. The night we went the lanes were super fast and we could hold onto each other and go down as a family of 5. My teens and 11 year old enjoyed it just as much as they did as young children. There are also mini tubing and mini snowmobiles for younger children plus some small runs for novice skiers and boarders. There is a warming yurt if you get cold and a magic carpet conveyer plus a hook conveyer to get you back up the hill efficiently. It was not terribly crowded when we went from 6:00-8:00 pm. They have one ride tickets and then 2 hour tickets and up. We find the 2 hours is just right.

“Great place to learn to ski/snowboard!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

While this is a great place to go tubing, it also has a learning hill for skiers/riders! We took advantage of the ability to teach our 8 yr old how to ski and our 6 yr old how to snowboard. For $10/child we had access to the conveyor and a learning hill. We stayed for almost 3 hrs! Ski school at most resorts is $200-250! This is a great spot and a very reasonable price to learn. You don't have to pay if you don't have skies on and are just helping your child. It is for kids 8 and younger.

“Call ahead & make sure they have good snow.”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

So very disappointed in this place. It cost $60 round trip taxi to get there from Park City and it's only 10 mine away. Rip off! We got there and they told us the snow wasn't good that day so we tried one run and didn't even get halfway down. Such a disappointment for our son. Advice is to call ahead and make sure the snow is good!
