If you’re a mountain biker, or perhaps are thinking of becoming one, there is an awesome bike park at Calgary’s C.O.P. for you to explore.
Whistler’s Gravity Logic designed the park with a variety of terrains from beginner (green trails with small features) to advanced (serious jumps and obstacles), and even expert only black trails featuring gigantic drops.
With a high speed quad chair lift and 100 more of vertical terrain coming soon, the dirt jumps, pump track and obstacles will all be combined into one mega area.
Test out the brand new fleet of Norco bikes on the upcoming new bridges, drops, wall rides, and roller coasters.
Another option for those with a need for speed is the quick 60 second Bobsleigh ride. Albeit it a short ride, the memory will be long lasting.
The summer Bobsleigh Ride at Canada Olympic Park is not on ice, but rather it’s a ride on wheels. You plus three are accompanied by a professional driver as you soar down the official 88’ Winter Olympics Track around 14 wild twists and turns at speeds of around 11 km/hr and experience up to 4G’s of force! Weeeeeee!
