Amazing!

If you want to experience what an Olympian does, you have to try this. One of the best thrills and it's not like you're going to be able to experience this just anywhere!

Seriously a must a do if you are in Whistler! Worth every penny! Most awesome experience of my life and the staff make you feel like you are part of a real bobsled team! I can't wait to do this again and I'm totally going to try the skeleton next time!

Cruising down the worlds fastest Bobseld track at 125 km/hr is pretty amazing, would totally do it again, and am looking forward to going back and trying the Skeleton (Think a tiny sled you lie on your stomach and go down face first ;) Few things... 1) If you can, go in the winter, the actual Bobsleds go faster than...

This is truly a once in a life time experience, and where better to do it than the worlds fastest track! You might think its a little bit pricey, but its a non-profit organisation so suck it up. You'll have a great time

I bought 2 tickets to do bobsledding for my boyfriends birthday, not knowing what to expect. What a cool experience! The training is quick, then you are put in groups of 3. Thankfully they put my boyfriend and I together but the girl with us got split up from her group. We were one of the first sleighs to go... More

3 of us had a run on the bobsled whilst we were here on holiday. Was an amazing experience. You don't fully realise what it would be like trying to steer one of these things at full speed until you're on it.. luckily we had an incredible driver and we also came first on the night and pulled the highest...

I originally bought my boyfriend a public skeleton race for his birthday. There was a great offer on GROUPON for this (as well as bobsleigh experience) for $129.00 I have been told it was extremely fun and safe to do. When we arrived, they had my name written down also, but I hadn't paid yet. They offered me a good... More

we took the gondola ride (free) to get up here. You have to walk up a set of winding stairs to get up to this spot , so if you have trouble w walking..beware..but once you"re up there..it was so much fun to watch! you can rent the tubes..i think they were 5$, and watch them go down the mountain....

I put my 2 teenage kids in the 4 man bobsled and they really liked it. It's a real bobsled. They launch from the "lady's start. They say that if they launched from the top no one would have a good time becayuse they would pull 6Gs. The pros can only handle 3 rides a day at that pressure level.... More

I can highly recommend this trip as it is something you are unlikely to ever experience again. The price tag is high for a 40sec ride travelling at 127kmh, but I believe well worth it. The ride, speed and g-force you will experience is unique. We did the bobsleigh and purchased the $45 video at the end. If we visit... More
