My wife and I were in Whistler on our honeymoon and upon hearing you could still visit and participate at the sliding track during summer season made it the top of our to-do list while in town. Snowy and co. did an amazing job both on and off the track to create an unforgettable experience in total. Worth the visit... More

Went with a group of 8 adventuresome seniors, what a blast we had! The staff was so friendly helpful and reassuring to our nervousness. The downhill run went quickly but what a ride. I would highly recommend it.

Went up with a group of 8 not so young adventure seekers and we all had a great time. The drivers were terrific (Snowy was ours) and made sure everyone enjoyed the experience. Would recommend it highly to all.

Just get in and enjoy the thrill - it's over before you know it. Sit in the front if you can - you can't see the others in the video. Book ahead because it's so popular - not open Tuesdays or Wednesdays.

Wow! Amazing staff and sliding centre. 85 km/h for 53 seconds of exhilaration! Video cams and official photo for every participant. All of the dollars spent at the centre go back into the Bobsleigh centre and support for the athletes.

With so many great outdoor activities to choose from based in and around Whistler, my husband and I opted for the Rolling Thunder as a unique opportunity to somewhat experience the Olympic bobsleigh track (the fastest in the world apparently!) The summer ride isn't as fast as winter and we could only start from 2/3 up the track, but it... More

This was so much fun! 91 km per hour feels waaaaayyy faster in a bobsled than it does in a car! The staff were all very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a unique and totally memorable experience! Would highly recommend it.

An amazing and unique experience! It was really exciting to slide on the original Olympic bobsleigh track. We had a genuine warm welcome at the visitor centre and the instruction was clear as well as fun. We could tell that the people who were working there really enjoyed what they were doing. It was a once in a life time... More

The kids really enjoyed this although the day we were there only half the lines (4 of 8) were open so lineups were long.
