I had been riding a lot of single tracks leading up to my first time heading to Bryce. "Bomb" the downhills and burn up the hills. I use the term bomb lightly because Bryce redefined my definition of bomb.
This is a lift-assisted MTB park. Everything is built for mountain bikers, by mountain bikers. There are progressive trail ratings from easy to advanced and the trails are well labeled. The intermediate trails are easily ridden by anyone comfortable with riding moderately technical single track. A lot of fun berms and jumps. It will make you work. The advanced/black diamond trails here are able to be ridden by the intermediate looking to progress, however, it would be wise to ride them a couple times with someone comfortable with it to give you some pointers. There are a number of places that you could get hurt if you don't fully commit. With that said, EVERYTHING wooden has options for either sending the bike a country mile off of a launch or the ability to just roll it and go. Some of the land features aren't so forgiving and just require commitment to safely clear or thought to back off and either roll or walk it.
Note, while they do rent DH bikes, you can get away with riding a ~5" FS trail bike here on all of the trails. Just drop that seat post all the way down for DH mode and don't try to clear the road gap unless you are truly an expert.
FYI, this is a full on resort in the mountains. Bring family or a S/O if it gets you out. You can find something for them to enjoy will you go have fun.
