Again, only offer rides a couple days of the week, call ahead before making the drive. The staff were not impressed to let us get a view or picture without charging an admission fee to see a bobsled track that wasn't being used..............Unbelievable.

Try out the bobsled - the fastest 10 seconds you'll have in Lake Placid! Fly down the 1/2 mile track with a driver and brakeman. (With the bobsled ride, you also receive a pin, t-shirt, and a team photo.) Check out the tracks, and the great views of the High Peak areas. This venue is also great for weddings!

The ride on the bobsled was a highlight of our trip! It was so much fun that we can't wait to go back and ride again!

It was a thrill to go to all of the Olympic sites but we were most excited about this one. My boyfriend went on the bobsled run and said it was fantastic. I did not go because I have had back surgery and had heard it was rough on the neck and back. The history and information provided in the... More

Brad always wanted to visit the Bobsled & luge Olympic complex. It was very interesting. You get on a bus. The driver explains fun facts about the track for about 20 minutes. Then she takes you to the top after which you get to walk on the track which is about 3/4 of a mile. Very, very cool. When we... More

Walked in, bought tickets, (20% discount w/ Olympic Sites Passport) walked upstairs and were driven to start of track, fit for helmets and onto the bobsled. We weren't there more than 25 minutes and it was over! Definitely try once, not sure if I would pay to do again. My son can't wait to go back in winter to try... More

I didn't have the heart to take the bobsled but 6 members of my family did. I tried to take pictures of the sleds coming around the bend to the finish line. All reported it was fun but felt a little scary too! Thank goodness there is a professional driver.

We spent about an hour and a half here. The shuttle bus tour telling about the runs was interesting and the views are stunning. My kids (16, 13, 11) did the bobsled run and weren't blown away so I wish I hadn't spent the money on it.

The bobseld run at Lake Placid, NY is an absolutely unforgettable experience. Imagine sliding down an ice track at speeds approaching 70 mpg with nothing holding you onto the track other than a good driver and gravity. You try to sneak a peek as you head down into a turn and your head snaps uncontrollably to the left as the... More

We were lucky enough to do a bobsled ride. Expensive but VERY fun! My husband mounted a GoPro on his helmet so we have some good footage of our ride. The next day we went back and took the tour of the track. We really loved this too. Our guide works there year-round, and was very informative and gave an... More
