“Great tour”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

We were amazed by how quickly an hour passed here. We had a fantastic tour guide. She provided great information, happily answered all questions, and even looked up answers at the end of the tour to a couple of very obscure questions that were asked on the tour. Ours was a VERY large tour group, yet none of us had any issue hearing her talking. It was VERY interesting to see the grounds of the training center, and to learn more about training for the Olympics. The grounds are beautiful, with some very impressive sculptures. Lots to see in the visitors center as well.

“Perspective”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

This free tour and exhibit helps provide some context to the final event we all see on TV. Had a great tour and some great insight for the men's Olympic wrestling coach and gold medalist. Save the wrestling event in the Olympics!

“inspirational”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We visited the training center the day before the Pikes Peak ascent- very motivational...but also very humbling. There are so many great athletes at this state of the art training facility.

“Fun to visit”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

The training center was easy access. There is a gate with guards for security. The visitors center had lots to look at and an area for the children and adults to pose for pictures while pretending to be competing in an event. There was a tour available also. The grounds were very well kept and had a lot of sculptures and there were markers on the grounds with pictures and stories of some of our greatest Olympic Heroes. Without taking the tour you can actually see into a swimming pool used for training. If you like sports or the Olympics this a great place to visit.
