“Would go back again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

We did not get to take a tour, but we kind of got an unofficial tour from one of the resident athletes (family member) who we came to see. No "souvenir" shop, but they tell you the web site is where you could order t-shirts, etc. Lots of excitement there because of the upcoming games. OBTW, don't know about your GPS, but our Tom-Tom was no bueno in the area. Get a map!

Awesome BMX track. This place is a must if you are a bmx family. I can't explain the level this place brings bmx to. Glad to see how it has all evolved

“Chula Vista Centennial”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

This Olympic Training Center is the greatest. I visited many times and during the Chula Vista Centennial. Great place to visit not just because it is beautiful but because its really an Olympic training Center where champions are made.

“OTC what else can you say”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

This is a working campus. As a result is sort of hit and miss as when things are happening. Regardless it gives you a sense of what it takes to be an Olympic caliber athlete. The gift shop is worth the visit. Dont forget to see if there is anything going on on the lake.

“disappointment for the whole family”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2010

Our family visited the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, and so wanted to check out the California facility. Colorado was a happenin' place with terrific exhibits and plenty of activity. California not so much. Visitors are restricted to a walkway that was not near any training sites. We missed the guided tour but were assured that the "self-guided tour" had "all the same stuff." No map. No interpretation. No maps posted around the facility. Literally--the self guided tour was nothing besides looking at a series of signs showing dedications to generous donors. There were no exhibits but there was a film in the gift shop. I'm sure we would have enjoyed the BMX hall of fame better if we had an interest in the sport.
