The frog was good. The amount of the adrenaline is not as high as with a roller-coaster ride. I would say it is a mixture between a roller-coaster ride and a water slide :-).
We came there before noon (they open at noon). There were about 5-7 people waiting there, watching some luge (?) competition, so we had a chance to find out the situation. It seems this is not an official attraction place, it's just the real bobsleigh track which makes some extra money by giving people rides. Therefore the order is somewhat unclear, you have to ask about everything. People started gathering, nobody was sure who goes after whom, so I just gave the money to one of the guys there and asked if we can go next - he said yes :-). After we rode and came back - there were about 30 people, and no clear line.
Also, it is a cash-only place, they don't accept credit cards.

We've been twice to the bobsledge track and tried the winter bob and the green frog. At 35 lats the winter bob is expensive but worth every penny! I have a lot more respect for the athletes who partake in this sport. The adrenaline rush is incredible. If you suffer from neck or back problems i wouldnt recommend it as my neck was a bit sore the following day. The green bob was fun, you got to see more and was considerably cheaper at 15 lats but if i had to choose i would pick the winter bob every time. (beware they are only open for rides at the weekend, its closed to tourists throughout the week and its cash in hand to the athlete who drives your bobsleigh)

Went there with gf this winter,
Frog is better imho, because its like skeleton with your head down, more adrenaline, and with frog you can go without instructor, not like with bob.. just google it youll see :)
After finish the stuff will take you back up to the top, which is nice, but you can also walk if you want..
will def go there soon again!
TIP: if you want more speed choose the grey Frog!! Its real faster than green one!!

I arrange to do a bobsleigh run with my 27 year old daughter through info@traveloutthere.com in Riga and it was amazing. The company collected us from the hotel to the venue, however the venue is 1 hour from Riga, but well worth the journey. A few stag parties there but definitely didn't spoil it for us.

Gives you a new respect for bobsleigh as a sport, fantastic.
