My husband and daughter did it together. They loved it, better than any roller coaster. Need to make reservations ahead of time, it fills up fast. Not cheap, I think around $90 per person. My younger daughter (age 8) was scared, and did not want to go. For that price, I really was not going to try to convince her.

Cost clearly overpriced by 1/2. What is worse is the fact that the folks working there did nothing to create or make the event more of a fun exciting experience...especially for the kids. We interfaces with 5 different people stations...upon check in, shuttle to top, drivers at top, pitcher taker, checkout person giving photos. Not one individual went out of... More

We made reservations, so that was a good thing. You wait in a nice lobby and are shuttled right up to the ride. people are very friendly. The kids loved the ride (ages 11 and 8). I found it a bit rough on the head and neck, but heck, I'm old. I wouldn't pay to do it a second time,... More

I came to see the Women's Luge Race in December 2014. It is amazing to see a luge race in person as they move so fast, and you can stand so close to the track. I watched the first run at the starting area. It was interesting to see the look of determination on the young women's faces as they... More

We were in Lake Placid during a snowstorm, but that did not deter us from taking a trip up to the bobsled and luge complex, where we found a group of dedicated luge-ers training. We discover that they go much faster in person than when watching the Olympics on TV! Very interesting side trip.

I finally didn't do the bobsled. The young man was not friendly at all and I fell I was bothering him trying to get information. When I did ask more information about the other employee , she couldn't answer anything. I was very disappointed, they were basics questions. I decided to leave and do nothing. To go past the gift...

Bobsledding was pricey, but definitely worth it. It was very official, and you got a T-Shirt, pin, and a great experience. There were helmet cameras, and went fast around turns, really felt the force, and what it felt to be an olympic bobsledder

Crazy fun, a little scary, very expert staff. Everyone should do this! The ride was worth every dollar. Be sure to tour the track after your ride and watch others so you can see it from outside the sled.
