90 seconds and it's over, but what a 90 seconds. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. A real experience and something totally different. We had a driver but I understand new bobsleighs were coming in which you can drive yourself, if you're brave enough. Give it a go, you won't regret it. Oh and don't forget the video.

Is there a beer league? Sign me up. At first I was afraid, I was petrified. And then head first after a thorough training course and I am on the sled waiting for the push. Man, did that guy calm my nerves. The exhilaration of that first time is addicting. Feeling the G's press you against the wall is indescribable.... More

Check another one off the bucket list... this "ride" was awesome. The top speed of 124kph (77mph) was amaze-balls. The staff were excellent from start to finish and even though the weather (raining) didn't cooperate, there was nothing that could have dampened the thrill of hurtling down the track for ~42 seconds of sheer fun. Don't forget to purchase the... More

I want to thank the Whistler Sliding Centre for making this experience extremely unique and exhilarating. The bobsledding run was the activity I took part in and I would highly recommend it to others. If you don't try this whilst in Whistler your missing out - This is the fastest track in the world! The staff make you feel so... More

Super friendly, helpful and informative staff by phone. The receptionist helped us time our visit with a training run so that we could see bobsleds coming down the run. You can also take a course and get to skeleton down the track. Seems interesting, not sure if I'll go back to try; but sounds like fun and simple enough.... No... More

The people that run the centre are awesome. The service is good and we had a blast. We only got to do the summer run on wheels as we were there for mountain biking but it was still great. I would love to do one on ice. Al the profits from the sliding go back into running the centre.

This was a cool experience! A very easy way to gain an appreciation of what it is like to slide down one of the world's fastest courses. Super nice and passionate staff, too!

Offers a free self guided tour in Summer however disappointed. We drove up, couldn't locate parking there and later discovered its really meant to be hiked/walked up. Considering the drive I didnt see any scenic views nor the luge training I'm gonna guess Winter would be much more worth while.

I went to the the sliding center with a couple of friends while at Whistler and it was a definite must for all in Whistler! Too bad it was summer because the slides went at like 80 km per hour, I heard it goes wayyy faster in winter. Oh well. But it was still pretty fast and definitely worth the... More
