Must do - Ride a bobsled on the same track as Olympians. It's hard to explain the 55 second 6G experience. But, if you find people who have done it. It's just one big smile sharing stories. Adults are $100 Canadian - Kids under 19 free with paying adult. $200 for 4 of us was one of the least expensive... More

My two sons and I took the bobsleigh experience and had a terrific time. In summer you do it on a wheeled sleigh so quite a bit slower than on the ice in winter but still feels amazing going 88kph. You walk the first part of the track and see the vertical turns up close which is awesome. Then a... More

Had a great time at the Whistler Sliding Centre. This really is a unique opportunity. The experience lasts a couple of hours starting with information on the centre and the legacy it is trying to create for future athletes. They are very proud of being the fastest track in the world. During winter you have the chance to ride skeleton... More

I will say that this review is about the bobsled sliding experience rather than the center itself. The sliding center is small on its own and just has a few placards to talk about the track. If you are not going sliding, its an awkward and out of the way stop to make apart from the rest of whistler. The... More

I wanted to try the summer bobsleigh last year when I was in Whistler but just couldn't work it into my schedule so this year I was determined to go. We were a group of 3, me, my husband and our 16 y/o daughter. When you arrive, you have to complete the waiver form and get weighed. They then assign... More

We had two sled full of racers last week and had so much fun. It is amazing how fast those sleds go down that hill - I can't even imagine how fast it is on ice. We all loved it - would definitely go back again!!!!

Without doubt the fastest I have ever travelled so close to the ground. The experience of speed coupled with G forces you could not imagine make this a must in Whistler. The visitor centre and the way we were looked after is first class! Will definitely return....have the T shirt too.

The fastest 54 seconds of my life. This is a must for thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies alike. So much to do up in Whistler. From zip lining to white water rafting, hiking etc etc. this must be on the list though. Who else in your family/friends can say they rode the fastest bobsled track in the world? Awesome time,...

This is a must do in whistler. Most ages and sizes can join. The bobsled is on wheels and you get to experience the thrill of Olympic bobsledding. The drivers and instructors are awesome. We were the first runs of the summer and we wanted to do it again. If you like adventure......this is one to do
