The good: when we went through it was free. If you go earlier in the day you are more likely to see the athletes training, and the tour is quite interesting. The bad: Apparently it is no longer free, but now they charge a small fee to take the tour. Still, it is pretty interesting and it may be a... More

My wife and I did a guided tour where they show you glimpses of workout areas and gymnastics. I was disappointed we didn't go into the pool area (instead of looking through the windows), but it still gave us an idea of how the athletes train. We did see some swimmers and gymnastics on the tour. I'm glad we went,... More

I live in Colorado springs and this has been a disappointment for every guest I've taken. Unless you time your visit to see summertime skiers jump into pools or time get admission to see skaters practice, this is boring. It's like seeing a college dorm.

I've been lucky enough to participate in guided tours buy staff and docents at the center. They have a great deal of knowledge about the entire center. It's always inspiring to visit and many times you'll find an opportunity to watch the athletes working out. Awesome and humbling experience.

Great way to experience the Olympic lifestyle right here in Colorado Springs. Several sports train year around at the training center and can be seen during the week, tremendous amount of Olympic history and factoids to be learned. Best part, FREE admission.

First of all I have to admit I'm partial, my daughter Nikki works in the gift shop, make sure you say hi to her. We did not go on the tour, instead our daughter gave us a private tour. Very nice facility be prepared for walking, wear comfortable shoes.

I expected to see something more than a video and buildings but that is about it. If you are really into the Olympics I would say to go visit but we didn't see anyone training or Olympians walking around.

The tour is $5 for adults. It starts with a movie that hypes you about the Olympics then you tour the "campus." We went in the afternoon and the area seemed dead. The tour is mostly looking into windows or going into an empty gym. Obviously the facilities are nice but you are really just going from a tennis court... More

Real nice overview of an Olympians road to the Olympics. Great movie, nice look at the main training sites and even possible to see athletes training. Go - it's even free.
