We really enjoyed seeing the facilities and athletes practicing. The gift shop is outstanding, with things you won't find anywhere else.

Spent a few hours with our nation's finest amateur athletes at the US Olympic Training Center (one of three in US.) The 1.5 hour tour includes a short film and visits to the multiple facilities (usually hosted by an athlete.) The gift shop provides an opportunity to show your pride.

Tour started with a smaltzy movie. Our tour guide was about 17 and a bit unrefined, but pretty knowledgable. The facility is very impressive and I would have liked to see more. We saw the pool, shooting range, wrestling mat and weight room. There were some great photo ops in front of the big globe, flags and fake barbell. Worth... More

It was interesting to see. The tour was ok. I would have like to see a better Olympic Hall of fame exhibit rather than just a few pictures But overall we enjoyed it.

We enjoyed a quick stop at the Olympic Training Center. It was fun to look at the exhibits and see pictures of past Olympics. We also saw torches and other Olympic memorabilia. This is a definite must see for any fan of the Olympics.

My husband and I came here on a recommendation. What a unique and interesting tour. We went during the week so we got to see some athletes actually training which was so cool. The facilities are beautiful and the tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this fun 30 minute free tour!

We weren't sure what to expect when we came to Colorado Springs and stopped here. Are we sure glad we did! We ended up being the only two people on the tour, so we got quite an intimate tour of all of the facilities. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any of our questions. We...

I don't know if our tour was long today because of the number of people in our group but it was an hour and 15 minute tour. Which would have been great if we had seen a lot of things but we saw very little of the center. We did like going near the Dormitories because then we could glimpse... More

My family of 4 stopped here for a quick visit. Pretty cool to see where our Olympic hopefuls train & live. All other reviewers give a great description. Only advice was that google maps took us into hospital area - Don't park here...keep going. Closer parking on Olympic campus.
