3.5 stars Actually, my ratings should be in two different sets: one for the center itself (four stars), one for the staff working within the stores/guest center (1 star). It was beastly hot and incredibly uncrowded the day my cousin and I showed up for a quick look-see and the self-guided tour. We drove up the long driveway, with the... More

The self-guided phone tour wasn't working. So, we walked the mile path with only a map. You have to stay on the path. In the far distance, we could see soccer practice. At the end of the trail, we could hear gunshots, at targets??? Only people we saw were groundskeepers, besides soccer players that were very far away. There wasn't... More

We walked around the training grounds to see what there was to see. We saw people on a couple of the fields but could not tell if they were Olympic competitors or students hoping to someday be competitors. It is a relaxing site with wonderful views of the nearby mountains. Well worth the time for a pleasant relaxing walk.

This was one of the most enlightening tours I've ever been on. Our volunteer tour guide was a wealth of information. He escorted us around the training center by golf cart. We stopped at each event center and he explained what went on at each site and what improvements were being made to accommodate more sports. We were ably to... More

I like to bike to the Olympic training center but to be honest there is not much to see. They have a nice center but it is really for the athletes and not for visitors.

Really a neat place. The facilities are top notch, and you can go on a guided or self-guided (cellphone) tour. There's a BMX hall of fame in the main building, and a small museum that will bring back memories for anyone who was into BMX in the 70's.

We read about this Olympic training center and we thought we might go there. It was great. There were maps guiding you on a self guided tour. You get to see Olympians practice. It was cool for all ages. Go to ARCO Olympic Training Center.
