We did the summer bobsled ride. The employees were absolutely wonderful. They did a great job explaining safety procedures, the history of the track, etc. Our driver "Snowy" was so wonderful about answering questions about the sport in general. You could feel his positive energy and passion the whole time. The whole ride took us 54 seconds. They told us... More

We bobsledge the Whistler Olympic Track and it was great, although I'm sure it's better in the winter on ice. The people are great at explaining everything, safety, history, what to expect and background on the track (all very interesting). We got picture certificates at the end of our ride, which was a nice touch. The actual ride goes by... More

We went to the opening day of Rolling Thunder - bobsleigh on wheels for the summer! It was fantastic! The staff were friendly and professional, taking you through the safety aspects first and fitting you with a helmet before driving you up to the start of the track. There were only two of us plus our driver, Matt, but the... More

Don't know the sliding centre is open to public and they have public bobsleigh and skeleton that you can try and it's fun to try for >100 km/hr run. They have told me they might have bobsleigh on wheel for this summer. Looking forward to try that in summer.

This attraction sealed the deal when deciding what foreign country to visit in 2014. We are both adventure junkies and the Bobsleigh Olympic Experience was right up our alley! I'm not going to lie, I was nervous and second guessed myself as we watch people fly down doing the Skeleton ride. People of various ages and sizes took part in... More
