It is a unique opportunity to bobsled. It is pricey but only available here in the world. It is professional and safe.

This was an amazing experience .... With a real adrenalin rush, however at the same time physically hard (3-4 G force for a couple of seconds at 140km/hr) and quite frightening ! Don't get me wrong, it is a great experience, just don't expect a leisurely ride down the track ... It is a rough and very fast 40 second... More

We did the bobsleigh experience in Early January 2015. It happened to be heavily snowing that day. We took the Blackcomb Gondola to the first stop and then had a very snowy walk across a parking lot and up a road to the facility. Everyone there was great. I have to admit that I was expecting a little more upscale... More

This was the most incredible experience, and the best way to see out 2014. The staff were friendly, helpful and informative, and being piloted by Pat was awesome.

We had a groupon for bobsledding here and it was by far one of my favorite parts about our trip to Canada. Seriously though. Best 42 seconds of my life. They're very safe and make you feel secure even though you're racing down the track at 122 km/hr (~75mph). I would recommend this to everyone. It's not every day you... More

We did the bobsleigh with the guy who coached the team for Cool Runnings and hit second place going down. Just amazing - you have to do it! 45 seconds of pure speed!

We decided to visit the Sliding Centre and we signed up for the Bobsled ride. I don't know where to start. It was the coolest and most exciting thing any of us have ever done!! We got... More

My friends and I rode the bobsled course. It was one of the coolest 41.88 seconds of my life! Not cheap, but well worth it for a once in a lifetime opportunity.
