Riding a bobsled down an Olympic track was great fun. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. However, there were a lot of people so it took a long time to get everyone onto the track. The ride itself is less than a minute. The tour,...More

Go pros and selfie sticks are not allowed. You have to keep all body parts inside. They do film it for you and it's completely worth it!! Also you are going pretty fast so you might lose that stick and cause some damage.
