Completed the rolling thunder bobsled today and was one of the best experiences. Was a great rush. Staff were helpful and put everyone at ease. Our group aged between mid 20's to mid 70's so they cater for all. Highlight of our trip.

This was an absolute favorite of our recent trip to Whistler! My hubby and I had an absolute blast trying this out! The staff is all very friendly and they give you a full background on the Whistler sliding centre before you go for your ride. Watching the bobsleds come down, it really doesn't look like they are going all... More

The Whistler Sliding Centre is a must do activity if you are in this very picturesque village. The 3 girls took to the fastest track in the world and started at turn 7 (because no-one except the Olympians do the whole 16) what a spectacular ride; 91.49 km ph I have a new appreciation for the Olympians who do it...

I have never been so terrified in my life, but at the same time I have never been so thrilled! We visited to participate in the Olympic Bobsleigh experience and it is one of the best things we've ever done! The staff were friendly & helpful, the facilities are fantastic and the safety briefing was professional and informative. Not only... More

We had an amazing time - what an experience! The staff were super friendly and very informative. All the money for the rides goes to support our Olympic athletes, so get up there and take the ride of your life!

Sure it's a bit spendy, but when will you get another chance to ride an Olympic bobsled? That's what we asked ourselves. We had a great time. The ride itself is just over a minute, but it is exhilarating. I would love to do it again on ice. The summer bobsled has wheels. It is "piloted" by a centre staff... More

We visited on a Thursday and had arranged a reservation (highly suggested since they are closed Tuesday and Wednesday for slides in summer months). We arrived early so had plenty of time to check in and watch a few runs before our ride. Our debrief with Phillippe in the main centre was very informative, both about the history of the... More

This was an awesome experience! I love that they time you and you can race against your friends if you're in a group. Fun photos and certificates were also part of the experience. I wish we could do best of 3 because it goes by SOOOO FAST and was so exhilarating I wanted to experience it again. Definitely worth it,... More
