About
If you are searching for fun and adrenalin look no further than the Bobsleigh Track! Located a bit off the beaten path in the Prague area of Prosek, the Bobsleigh Track is the perfect place for a fun outing with children and adults alike. The track is 1 km long and features dips, loops and other attractions, it is also possible to ride at night thanks to special track lighting (the night panorama of Prague is gorgeous). This safe attraction can be enjoyed by persons of all ages, children under 8 are able to ride alone, while younger children can accompany adults as each trolley or bobsled features two seats. The speed of the trolley depends on your choice, as it is possible to adjust the speed using the break lever if you wish to go slower; on the other hand you can reach up to 62km per hour if you feel the need for speed. A lift is located at the bottom of the track to take you back up to the top where you can start all over again or stop and have refreshments, a snack or a full meal at the Restaurant at Bobsleigh Track – Prague, which boasts a terrace overlooking the city.

This place is a perfect place for people of all ages!! The track is around 1km long and definitely wakes you up after all the sightseeing in Prague!! The toboggans might not look fast from afar, but trust me, it is HAIR-RAISING!!! The best part is at the end, where they have a speedometer which shows how fast you're going! If you buy the 6-rides tickets, this definitely gives you the impetus to break your own and your friend's record (for ppl who are concerned about safety- there is a brake lever to adjust ur speed at all times). If you're tired after a few runs, you can always take a break and go over to the restaurant and enjoy a nice beer and some of the best grilled stuff in Prague (the Grilled Vegetables are a must-have).

This place is definitely worth visiting - it makes for a nice change from all the cultural attractions. I would recommend putting this in the itinerary in between two days of sightseeing. You can easily spend an entire afternoon here (I've heard the night scene is amazing, but I never stayed that long). I shared 6 runs with my brother and BOOM! Two and a half hours flew past.

Getting there:
Don't trust the Prague guide (http://www.prague-guide.co.uk/articles/bobsleigh-track.html) for directions: they changed the bus number to 117. Takes around 30-40 mins to get to Kelerka from Nametski Republiky metro station.

We had a great time and a lovely meal in restaurant as well. Would recommend going early. We arrived as it opened and had the track to ourselves. Soon after a school trip arrived!
We had six runs each as it is so good and cheaper to buy.
It was easy to find, metro red line C to Prosek, then bus 140 or 185, two stops(be careful as it is a request stop).
Enjoy!

This is terrific fun and well worth visiting but just be mindful that you control the speed and you can tip out if you go too fast which can put a damper on the rest of the holiday if you get injured. There are 2 guys at the top where the toboggans start but they don't say anything to you about any safety procedures. It's very much down to you to work it out for yourself, admittedly it's not difficult. There is a brake in the centre of the toboggan, if you leave it in the middle you will descend at a moderate speed all the way down however if the speed freak in you is just waiting to come out then if you push this brake all the way forward you can hurtle down the track. This is where I urge caution, I totally forgot my age and skill levels, went far too fast ( my fault totally) and crashed on one of the turns, although I hit the sides
of the track a few times I somehow managed to stay on the toboggan and escaped with just a few bruises. It certainly crossed my mind afterwards that it could've turned out a lot worse and I could have easily fallen out. I would still recommend going here though as its good value for money and the kids love it.

We were a group of guys on a stag do (great start, I know) and taking it in turns to go down the slide, as per normal. There was no offer of safety equipment for adults (I'm primarily referring to a helmet), although there was a row of what look like old children's cycling helmets hanging up behind the marshal. The rules state that 2 people may go down the slide on the same sledge/toboggan/bobsleigh as long as their combined weight does not exceed 150kg. Search Google for 'toboggan run Prague' and you will find the first result is a video of two guys going down on the same toboggan and subsequently falling off about 100m down the track. It is not safe.

In fairness it's good fun, you reach good speeds (I think the fastest in our group was 55kph) and you don't feel in danger - the most you can imagine happening is catching your elbow on the sides or something, or falling and grazing yourself. After a couple of goes a couple of our group decided to go together, the marshal at the top allowed it and didn't make the next person to go (me) wait any longer than usual. So I went down, and about halfway down the ride after a corner I had to slam on the brake in order to stop so as not to crash into one of the two guys who had gone together. Of course they had fallen off. Whilst I was stopped in the middle of the track, the next person came flying around the corner and did not have time to stop. He crashed into the back of me and broke his ankle. His head collided with mine and we both flew forwards. I was knocked unconscious and rushed to hospital in an ambulance. I suffered severe bleeding on the brain, and the doctors did not know if I would survive the operation. The chances of death were higher than survival statistically. I fortunately recovered but the accident happened on the 12th September, and I didn't leave the hospital until October, and have only returned to work this week (1st Feb), after a follow up operation to insert a titanium plate in my skull.

Prague is a great city with lots of other things to do. Whilst this place can be fun, the health and safety restrictions simply are not good enough. Avoid this place at all costs.

Went here in a group after seeing adverts for it, after our first ride we all had managed to get burns on our arms from the track, then one us was going down and someone had decided to completly stop on a blind corner, he went into her at full speed around 40mph and as a result spend the rest of the weekend in agony after smashing his face into the brake lever. He has had xrays and has broken his nose and broken his skullbone in 2 places. Thare are NO marshalls, no one to check the track is clear and no first aid was available or offered. Please do not go here.

I went there with my friends, and during the ride one of them fell down of bob because of the speed.
The fence was not high enough, and he overflew it on high speed of about 50km/h and broke his hand. Surely, our trip suffered a lot because of this.

Read a lot of reviews about this not being safe and watched videos that looked like it was slow and boring. Both wrong :) People who fall off have got to be careless. They weren't leaning into the corners correctly or at all is my guess. My mate hit 55kph without using the brake and he didn't fall off.

Towards the end of the ride you can see the speed you are doing. Makes it so much more fun and competitive.

We nearly never did it because of the reviews and videos. If you are in Prague and enjoy activities then you must visit this place.

This is quite some way out of Prague (think 45 mins until you get there).

It is really fun but the health and safety aspect is conspicuous in it's absence; no real training given and we weren't given helmets unless we put a deposit on them. Even then they were bike helmets.

I had the distinct impression that if I injured myself I would have no recourse to compensation or anything like that.

With that said, it was a lot of fun, just cover your face at the bottom before you go through the blinds because they whip you pretty hard in the face!

It's a great way to have fun for an hour or so with an original activity that you will want to talk about.
It's mostly marketed to families and seems suitable for kids aged 4 and up. But really, it's the parents that seemed to have the most fun of all !
For 60 CSK, you get one ride; or you can get a discount if you buy several.
There's a restaurant with a nice view of the city skyline where you can have a drink after the rides. Food is so-so, but good enough for a quick drink.
Best way to get there is to take the subway red line to Proseck station (second to last station on that line) and then walk down Prosecka street for 1km towards the city center. The park is on the left.

We got an uber here from the centre and it only cost us about £4.50. You pay cash or card on the door which was 350Kc for 5 rides or 600Kc for 10. It's worth knowing that you get a ticket loaded with the amount of rides you've purchased which you can pass amongst whoever you're with.

It's got a really good bar there which has beers, different tea and coffees, hot chocolates and cake and pizza. Which was in expensive and of good quality.

Alltigether we spent about 1 1/2 hours here, I did 5 rides and had a stop half way through for a beer after I went down the track like a nut case without breaking anywhere and went flying out of my tabogan and into the side.. ouch but nothing a pint couldn't fix lol.

It is mad how there's no safety briefings or anything and it's like sit down and go with a brief look at a sign that tells you how to brake... I didn't care I love getting away from all the health and safety BS you get in the UK and it adds to the thrill but I could imagine how others may not see it the same way.

Fun for all ages and adults can go down with young children.
