Very well run, organized and an absolute blast! The entry fee includes a picture and t-shirt so there's none of that "added sell" nonsense. The boys had a blast although I must... read more

We were in Lake Placid for a hockey tournament in January. After the hockey was over, we thought we would try something different and all 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids (7 and 9)) wanted to try bobsledding. It is a very smoothly run operation, but like some other people said, you feel very rushed through the whole thing.... More

Simple question: How many chances will you have in your life to ride a freakin' 4-MAN BOBSLED down an OLYMPIC BOBSLED RUN??? None? Yeah, that's what I thought. Same here. So yeah, it was 90 bucks and worth every penny, at least to me. And apparently to a whole bunch of other ordinary (like me) people, since my 3 friends... More

After being told in spring of 2014 that Thanksgiving weekend is usually a good time to come to do the Bobsled run, we arranged for our house rental and called again in mid September only to find out that there was a major Luge event going on and that the Bobsled run would be closed. Fortunately we were able to... More

I'm 72 years old and riding a bobsled has been on my bucket list for as long as I can remember. It was everything I thought it would be and more. I just wish it lasted longer but it gives me a reason to go back!!

I had used several different sources including AAA, the internet, print media, the Visitors Bureau and calling directly on the phone to make my vacation plans. We drove almost nine hours only to find out when I got to the Bobsled and Luge Complex that we as a family (and willing to pay $90.00 each), couldn't take the Bobsled Ride... More

Chevy should be ashamed of their name being associated with this attraction. It is poorly managed and could be so much better. Your completely rushed by the employees. They don't talk to you, teach you about the history, facts about the track or even what your going to experience. You get into a Chevy truck that smells like smoke, a... More

The Bobsled experience is on the more expensive side of things to do, especially for the time invested, not including waiting for your turn, probably 5 minutes total, 3 of which are being driven from the waiting area to the top of the track, and then back down to the waiting area. That being said, it is a really great... More

Absolutely fantastic! We were here while an event was happening so it was a privilege to watch world-class athletes competing at the facility.

You'll never miss the bobsled event again after going on this track. It's the real thing, minus about 30 miles per hour. In the four man sled, we went about 60 miles per hour. Had a pro driver and brakeman. It's a quick ride, but a great experience, and well worth the $90US.
