I fully understand that we can't go down the full track, but it's a really short ride, which was interesting but nothing special. However the overall experience is made much better by the excellent staff and drivers who do all they can to give you the best time possible. For the cost I don't think the bobsleigh ride is value...

We had a great time here. My non thrill seeking wife was heard to say wahooo as we hurtled down the track. Great staff, great value. We puchased the optional video funny viewing. You don't need a camera on the run itself, they do walk you around the track for photo's . And you don't have to be Jamacian.

What a fun time! The staff was very happy and friendly. They definitely made you stoked for the ride. It was very interesting learning about the track and the different sports that happen there. I would love to try the bobsleigh in the winter to go faster. The great staff gave you a great experience! You gave team Poptart a... More

Did the summer bobsleigh with friends last week and we all thought it was fantastic - friendly staff, brilliant experience to do the bobsleigh and value for money. Special mention to Damian and Ben for looking after us! Will definitely recommend to friends going to whistler

Visited the sliding center with our family during vacation. Our children are younger than 12 so they were unable to participate. We decided to send the grandparents on an adventure of their life! Ages 63-70, these grandparents were given instructions and rode down a bobsled (with a driver) at almost 80mph! They all loved the experience and my 70 year... More

Thanks Snowy for an amazing bobsled at whistler sliding centre. All three of us loved it and will be back in the winter for the skeleton.... Amazing experience reached up to 91km an hour and not once felt like we were in any danger. Massive shoutout to Snowy from team "Just Peachy".

It was really fun, but was only a minute long. I'd say it was worth the money. The people who work there are helpful. Id recommend this if you're in Whistler.

Had the first run of the day and Crow, our pilot, was awesome. Pretty quick track for a Summer morning, cool souvenir picture to take home. Skipped purchasing the $30 video of me screaming profanities for 57 seconds. We'd definitely be back for the winter track.

Just arrived in whistler the week the bobsled opened for the summer season. We were greeted by some great guys who gave us a great introduction to the ride and the atmosphere of the 2010 winter games. Loved it, it's a one off ride and well worth doing. I would recommend it to try. The run took just under a... More

Enjoyed my one and only experience with summer bobsledding and my son survived as well. The organization and learnings were really good and my only regret is that the ride on the summer sled is a little violent. When it's on ice the sled slides up the sides but the rubber wheels on the summer sled catch and you're jerked... More
