We found the history present in the small museum very interesting especially the old bobsleds.The walk up the bobsled run was worth doing. Watching the sledders go by gives you a good appreciation for Olympians who participate in this sport. The staff who take care of the run are very friendly and provide you with lots of background information. If you are brave enough to try it you will. Be shelling out 80$ for a few seconds of adrenalin rush

Great experience. Not cheap and they should let you do two runs down the the bobsled. But I would do it again.

Just being at the complex is exciting but experiencing first hand the speed of these sleds is amazing.

Wow!! what an experience... Those guys go around 75 to 80 miles an hour bumping with the ice, its crazy!!! Impressive sport. We were lucky enough that we got to see world class Luge at the World Competition Finals of Luge. Awesome...
