A great place to take your visitors! The adults and kids equally enjoyed it! Make sure you go along with a tour, otherwise you miss quite a bit!

You do get to go in a few of the buildings, but most of the time is spent outdoors walking between buildings. On a lovely day, I am sure it would be better, but we were there on a cold, snowy day. We had an terrible guide (volunteer) which impacted our tour, but the potential to learn about who sponsors... More

The free tour is interesting, you can see where the athletes train and learn interesting facts about why the training center is located here. You'll only need an hour or two to see the whole facility, so it's a nice short stop.

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit. The history of the games was very interesting. I loved actually seeing the athletes training. They're so dedicated.

The tour was really well done. I felt bad that all these corporations and so called sponsors make millions off the atheletes while they give the best years of their lives for a dream. Nevertheless, our tour guide was awesome and we learned a lot.

Kind of interesting, but not much to do. If there were athletes around it might be interesting to hear their stories. Otherwise it is a bunch of gyms and workout facilities. At least you don't pay for admission and they don't press you for donations!

We expected more. I mean Colorado Springs is home of the US olympic committee. Its really a small campus with some outdated buildings. The inside of which didn't seem to be able to inspire anyone to Gold. That said, they have a nice video and its a leisurely tour that makes for a nice stop in between destinations.

Most people come to Colorado Springs for the Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak and a way stop for the Rocky Mountains. But the Olympic Training Center five minutes off I-25 is well worth the time to drive thru the little town of C'Springs and actually see Olympic athletes in training! Your tour guide will be an athlete too.

We brought our two teens and two college kids here to get them excited about the 2014 Winter Games. Most of the tour is outside walking around so dress accordingly.They also have a variety of sporting events there. The USOC Hall of Fame is small, but good if you are a fan of the Olympics. They also have Bob Beamon's... More
