We attended the 2018 UK Inter-services bobsleigh event as spectators. The track itself is very good although the spectating points are not great. If you get a chance to go on a taxi bob take it

We took the basic "bob raft" experience, where 4 people travel down the bobsleigh run in a well-padded flexible bathtub. However, it still reaches speeds of 80 km/h and goes right up on its side going round the faster bends, so you do get a...More

We loved this! You get one go down the bobsleigh track in a customised bobsleigh (padded for us non Olympic athletes). Although a very short experience, we all loved it! Very exciting and terrifying at the same time.

Went here to get a pizza. Should have taken a burger. It obviously was low season ( X-mas) because no-one cared. Locals, hardly. Foreigners, 1 drink. Pizza was not good. Way too much sauce from a can with little topping.
