Drove 7hrs after work with my 2 girls just to ride this coaster!!!! Purchased our tickets online 2 weeks in advance and prayed the weather would cooperate. Tickets are pricey! ($55pp) BUT....here are the bonus points.... 1. Longest mountain coaster in the country! 2. Speakers in sleds give you the history of the bobsled run next to it! 3. You CANNOT crash into the sled in front of you due to high tech sensors! 4. Once you descend, you ARE an olympic bobsled driver! 5. The views are absolutely breathtaking! We went for lunch afterward and back to motel for a power nap before driving 7hrs back home. What a fun Day of the Dead treat! Great for any age!

We did the bobsled, skeleton sled, and biathlon. The bobsled was fun and worth doing once, but I doubt I'll do it again. The biathlon is fun but it's more a cross country ski lesson then shooting lesson. They're never really together. It's fun if you like those things but nothing special. The skeleton slide is awesome though! I would do that over and over if I could. Seriously, try it. You're missing out on life if you don't.

A bobsled experience is something that I had always wanted to experience and it did not disappoint. We did the combo bobsled/skeleton package and absolutely felt it was worth the high price tag. Staff was extremely engaging, rides were thrilling, and there are very few places in the world where you can get the chance to do something like this. The bobsled was much smoother than I expected and I was able to have a relatively clear view through the whole ride. My wife, not being able to see, did not have the same opinion and ended up a bit bruised on the ride. Skeleton couldn't have been easier, just lay down and enjoy the ride. Both lived up to the high expectations I had. Only downsides to the experience were the terribly dated lodge that you had to wait in (which is being replaced by a new one currently under construction), limited opportunities to view the run off track due to all the coverings, and the wait between the two experiences.

We did the bobsled run and I can check that one off the bucket list! It was amazing half mile run with speeds over 50 mph! Spend the money - you’ll be glad you did!

I had always said that, given the opportunity, I would do the Bobsled Experience at Lake Placid. Well, we vacationed in the area and so off we went to the bobsleds. This area, like the ski jump you can visit, seemed to be in transition/under construction. Lots of temporary buildings, construction fences, and muddy walkways. I assume that's all temporary. You come in contact with lots of folks between when you walk in and check in, fill out your forms, get shuttled to the top of the run, get suited up, load into the sled, ride down, exit the sled, and get your photo taken. Most of those folks were very helpful and friendly, and added to the experience. While going down the run is a wonderful experience, it's many notches below even an average roller coaster in terms of excitement. It's definitiely a thrill to actually go down the run, but it really isn't all the frightening. And it lasts about 40 seconds, which makes this a pretty expensive activity. The four of us were glad we did it, we have a wonderful story to tell about an experience most people will never do, but we were hoping for a bit more excitement.
