We spent the time to do the bobsled run and would do it again in a heartbeat. You will get on a shuttle which will take you up to the top of the track. First you select a helmet with the help of the staff. Make sure they fit well. Then 2-4 people climb in. We had 2 adults. You... More

It was nice to have this option for our group as we had older folks who did not wish to walk much, while we were eager to walk through the grounds so all of our interests were met. The bus driver/guide was knowledgeable and really provided interesting insights regarding the olympic site preparation and ongoing training use. It really made... More

You'll get a real apprectiation for the term "G-forces" the next time you watch the Olympics. We moved at HALF the normal speeds and I thought my neck was going to snap on the last turn. Seriously, this is not a kiddie ride and even though you are warned in advance not to do it if you have any medical... More

Super fun, and I have a new respect for those athletes. The only down side was the cost. $75 per person for about 45 seconds of ride is a pretty steep price tag. But what do u expect for unique? We did get a tshirt snd a really nice photograph, though. Driver Chris was awesome!

Unlike other reviews , we did not feel rushed. It was a Saturday mid afternoon in early June. Staff was friendly enough. One of a kind experience.

I always wanted to try Bob sledding, but I had no idea that I would ever have the opportunity. I saw a brochure for this complex at the visitors center in Lake Placid. My son and I went for the experience, and I highly recommend this to anyone who likes roller coasters. When we arrived, we were taken by suv... More

A great way to get a bob sled experience without snow. A nice addition to a summer day. Wonderful family fun . Cool runnings.

We decided to check out this place when passing by on a cold and rainy spring day. It was worth the effort. At the visitor center / shop we learned that you can purchase a bobsled on wheels ride on the lower portion of the course. It's not cheap but a treat for a teen plus they get a photo... More

What an exciting and neat opportunity you have by being able to experience a ride in an Olympic Bobsled. It was well worth the cost when my twelve year old daughter told me it was the coolest thing she had ever done in her life.

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
