I'm sat here trying to think of adjectives to describe the Bobsledding experience at the sliding centre and I can't find any to describe it. It's like nothing else I've ever experienced, no roller coaster even comes close and it's without a doubt one of my favourite life experiences. The staff at the centre are welcoming, funny and knowledgeable. Their... More

We took friends to the Whistler Sliding Center the second week of March. I don't think they were that interested, but they were good sports. We didn't go to slide. We went to the visitor center for a look around and were very pleasantly surprised. A very nice gentleman working there very patiently answered all of our questions and told... More

What did the reviewers get wrong? For me, I seriously hope this is not a "once in a lifetime experience" but something I get to do at least every year and only regret not living closer so I could be back on a skeleton more often than that. My wife and I went up to Whistler in February mostly for... More

Fantastic! The sliding centre is a product of the Vancouver Olympics in 2010 and still looks and feels brand new. Whats more you can partake in the Bobsleigh or Skeleton. I have done both and both are equally as good. Bobsleigh is insanely fast where as the Skeleton is extremely scary but both really safe and an amazing adrenaline rush!... More

Fiance wanted to do something unique to celebrate her birthday - so we did the bobsleigh experience! Totally fantastic to go roaring down the bottom half of the track and reach up to 120 kmh. Pretty reasonable price...even if it is only for 40 seconds of fun. The video after is worth it simply because we'll probably never end up... More

Watched as people slid down the track at some 100K speeds plus. They did a great job teaching and explaining before you ventured into the track. The track was designed for speed and speed is what you get. A fun and exciting adventure for all who participate and watch.

Rather than skiing on an average kind of day we decided to give the skeleton at the sliding center a go. Not really a natural progression I know... The staff there were really friendly, helpful very professional, and the way the spoke to our group was very reassuring. 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!
