“Excellent experience, a must do in La Plagne”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

At 40 euros each for the 'bob raft' ride this experience is hardly cheap, but definately worth it! A bob raft fits 4 adults in, meaning if you are a group of 2 you will be cobined with another group of 2. It starts off at a slow pace but very rapidly gains speed. The G forces you feel on turns are incredible. I would not recommend for those with a weak stomach or fear of speed! At the end of the track you are brought back up in a van and can watch the video they film of you on your journey down. The actual decent lasts around 60-90 seconds.

“Fantastic”

We did the bobsleigh with our two children (11 & 8) and had a brilliant experience and a video that we will treasure forever. A must do!

“So much better than I expected!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

This 'thrilling' experience really gives you an insight to why those 'crazy tobogganists' would want to put their lives on the line so willingly. We went for the four in a toboggan(Raft) option. It started very tamely, accelerated through 'fairground ride' speed and finished like a trip in a jet fighter! I loved it an would love to try it again. The organization was very slick and you felt very safe at all times. If you're in La Plagne or near, don't miss this.

“Be prepared”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

I went on the 4 man bobsleigh , 3 guests and a driver. Exhilarating and scary, the compression in the turns almost makes you pass out. Don't go if you have a back problem or a dodgy tum. Seems expensive at €130 but worth every penny, a very unusual thrill.

“Fast !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is an experience not to be missed, the speed is incredible! We were staying in Plagne Centre and got on the shuttle bus which stopped pretty much outside the bobsleigh location. There were six of us and after we registered we sat in the waiting room for about 20 mins - the anticipation is stomach churning!! When you are called you go through to another room and have helmets fitted and then your out onto the course. We won't say more as you have to do this to experience it - you won't be disappointed!
