Renovated Olympic Freestyle Pool Showcases Olympians and World Class Athletes; Enthusiasts invited to try the water ramps through Fly Freestyle Programs

July 20 2015

Park City, Utah (July 20, 2015) – A must see event in Park City, Utah! New for the 2015 summer season, Utah Olympic Park will be hosting Flying Ace All-Stars Freestyle Show presented by USANA Health Sciences every Saturday at 11:00 A.M. and Sunday at 1:00 P.M., in July and August. The shows take place in the newly renovated Spence Eccles Olympic Freestyle Pool which boasts seven new water ramps and 1 million plus gallon training pool.

 

The Flying Ace All-Stars are composed of the world’s top Olympic-level skiers, snowboarders and acrobats who perform a half-hour choreographed acrobatic routine set to music. The performing athletes take off from water ramps with a ‘mountain like’ incline at speeds up to 35 miles per hour which launches them up to 60 feet in the air where they execute incredible flips, twists and turns into the Olympic Freestyle Pool. There can be as many as six athletes in the air at one time, demonstrating the various disciplines of skiing and snowboarding as seen in the Olympic Winter Games and Winter X-Games.

 

The family and visitor-friendly Freestyle Shows have become a weekend tradition in Park City. The one of a kind show features action-packed and human-powered performance from beginning to end followed by a chance to meet the athletes.

 

Tickets for the Freestyle Shows are available online at UtahOlympicLegacy.org or on-site at the Utah Olympic Park. Tickets for adults are $12; youth (ages 3 to 12) and seniors (65+) are $7; children two and under are free. Show organizers recommend arriving an hour prior to the show start time for best parking and available seating. The shows take place every Saturday at 11:00 A.M. and Sunday at 1:00 P.M. through September 6.

 

Through the support of the following organizations, Utah Olympic Park has been able to continually host the Flying Ace All-Stars Freestyle Shows and showcase Utah’s Olympic Legacy to visitors and locals alike: USANA Health Sciences, Park City Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau, Swire/Coca-Cola, Montage Deer Valley, Tanger Outlets of Park City, and Utah Media Group.

 

For those inspired by the athletics of the Flying Ace All-Stars, the Utah Olympic Park offers two introductory programs for ages seven and older that provide an opportunity to learn to water ramp and ski jump into the Olympic Freestyle Pool. Choose from the two-hour Freestyle Intro Session or three-hour Freestyle Signature Session, and experience the thrill of skiing into the pool with a dedicated coach. The Freestyle Intro Session offers a group environment, beginning instruction necessary to safely jump into the pool on the “Mini” Ramp. Freestyle Signature Sessions offer a smaller participant-to-coach ratio, dedicated trampoline time and the opportunity to jump on both the “Mini” and “Single” Ramps. Each session includes all equipment needed to ski jump into the pool. 

 

The Freestyle Intro Sessions is $95 per person and is available Friday to Sunday through August 30 from 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. Signature Intro Sessions are $195 per person and available daily with advanced reservation through September 27. Reservations can be made online or by calling 435.658.4206.
