From the 88 Olympics, now an activity area there are: a go cart like luge run, Bobsleigh run with the bobsled on wheels piloted by former Olympians, mountain biking including lessons and equipment rental. More that we didn't get to see or try.

Contrary to other reviews on here, I can honestly say I had the most amazing run on the summer bob sled. I suffer from terrible car/motion sickness (i cant even read a map in a car) but I was determined to take the opportunity to go where Olympic athletes had been before me, and of course the film Cool Runnings...

We stopped here to take photos of the 1988 Winter Olympic site. We were there near closing and due to power outage couldn't go inside. We got to see the flags and flame cauldron. The Jamacian and Canadian bobsleds used in Disney movie are there. We could see at least three ski jumps and current training facilities. Nice visit in... More

It was a great day out. Park is quite big. There is a lot of thing to do. We started with the luge. took 3 rides. Each of them was great. Really easy to drive. Suitable for kids. Nice track with few hairpin turns. Then we went for Zipline. That was a great experience. It is huge, fast and they... More

Winsport is an interesting place with mountain biking, luge runs and a bobsleigh ride at the old Olympic site for ski jumping, luge and bobsled. The luge was a lot of fun and very easy to do. The bobsleigh on the other hand was expensive ($65pp) and they tell you if your pregnant or prone to motion sickness or have... More

The Olympic park was FUN!!! The Luge was crazy fun. It seemed a bit expensive 10 rides for 70$, that was for a family of 4, 2 rides each...but as the sign says "once is never enough"!!! But it's worth the experience. They also had zip lining off the 90 meter jump, and bob sledding. All the thrill seeking adventure... More

I am a huge Olympics fan, so it was a treat to visit this location. It's wonderful that the facilities have been maintained and opened to the public. We skipped the expensive tour and bobsled and played mini golf. It was an extremely challenging, "Olympic caliber", mini golf that was both fun and offered beautiful views.

The Olympic Park was just a lunch stop for our group as we had just gotten off a flight from EWR to YYC. As far as food goes, eww. Overpriced and not very healthy for a place that otherwise wreaks of health. There seem to be a bunch of summer campers here as the place is wall to wall kids.... More

We pulled in for a look as driving past, went on the luges and this was fun. Looking around the park it is very run down and looks like a grave yard kinda, its not well maintained. Also tried the Bob sled, was fun but I came out with a throbbing headache as it is really rough and you get... More
