“Thrilling!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2014

This sliding center was built for the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. We took the Bobsled ride. This is still the fastest track in the world. This is an experience of a lifetime. I felt like a world class athlete.

What a really great experience - both skeleton and bobsleigh were so much fun. The staff are really friendly and you can tell they love what they do.

“Incredible experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

If you are in Whistler, this is a must do. We did the bobsleigh experience, and it was incredible. Great thing to do on a rest day from skiing. After an orientation, you are split into teams. You then get to take a bobsleigh run with two other participants and a pilot. The fastest track ever built. Pull about 3-4 G's and top out at 125-127 km/hr.

“Pure Adrenalin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

A truly Olympic experience. Not for the faint hearted this is a fantastic experience. Travel at over 80 mph and feel the full force of the twists and turns on the worlds fastest track. It may only be 40 seconds but the memory will live long. Friendly, knowledgable staff prepare you for this thrilling ride. Another must for visitors to Whistler.

“Spare underwear”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

A once in a life time adventure to experience part of what an olympian bobsledder does. There are probably not many places in the world where this can be done.
