They explained everything in detail and were obviously extremely experienced - not... More

The entire experience was slick and well organised. The staff were professional and friendly and seemed to make everyone feel comfortable and safe. The actual Bobsleigh ride was fantastic - our pilot, Damien was happy to pose for photos and gave us a great trip. One of the best things we did on our holiday!

We watched Canadian's next medal winners 8-14 kids training on the luge. We did the 4man bobsleigh run. It was super organised and we had a blast!! 40:40seconds down the track at top speed of 89 mph along with 3-4 Gforce on your shoulders. Put this on your bucket list you won't regret it.

If bob sled is on your bucket list, that's the place to do it. Make sure your back is strong and can withstand G forces of 4/5G... It's like the most awesome roller coaster ride you have ever been on... On steroids !!!

It was fantastic! The staff were great at getting all of us organized. The safety training by Brendan (?) was entertaining and informative. If you want an adrenaline rush - this is it. Can't wait to do this again.

This is a once in a lifetime experience you must do. Although the actual ride itself is exhilarating, there are a few tricks the staff could learn whilst walking you up to the start position. They should ensure that all members of the paying public are present before they start giving their little talks at each stop. Some people missed... More

It was really great to be able to watch the athletes practicing!! Maybe we'll do this next time when the kids are older, as they are dying to try skelaton. It was easy to access as well, and we did the tube park on the way.

Great experience to ride the actual olympic track, fast and bumpy but lots and lots of fun. Well informed, professional and helpful staff make the afternoon very enjoyable.
