A little expensive but fun! Only about 50 seconds but a few of the turns really help you recognize what the sport is all about....

A little expensive, but worth the thrill. This place tended to be busier the longer we were there so if your interested, go early to avoild long waits.

We took our 13 year olds, a boy and a girl, here on our vacation this summer and we had a blast. The bobsled ride is short, only half of the old track and it took only 45 seconds, but it was worth every cent. The force going into the turns nearly snapped my neck. After our ride we took... More

It's as advertised. You ride from the base to the top in an SUV; put on a helmet; get in a real bobsled behind a professional driver ... and then bye-bye Charlie. A lot of banging and shaking back and forth, so proceed with caution if you have a sensitive neck or back. Worth the money.

Was glad to find easy access parking. Guide for the bus tour was great. Had lots of experience and good stories. Very interesting. Would have loved to have taken the option to walk down the track if legs could have made it. Oh well...

If you go to lake placid and expect to ride the bobsleds call in advance. We were there june17 th -19 th and they didn't open until the 22 nd of June. This seems a little late to open up as there was a lot of people wanting to try the bobsleds. Nobody could give a reason for the late... More
