      Must be in good health.
      This was a fabulous experience. The waiver is terrifying as it states that previous passengers have had compression back injuries. We found out that with a great pilot that is unlikely. This was a great opportunity. Well maintained. I felt very safe.

      Fun Family Experience
      We did the Passenger Bobsleigh and I would recommend it. It's definitely a thrill ride and fun experience. The whole experience does take an hour and a half. Great way to end your day in Whistler!

      What a Ride!
      This is a must-do for any winter Olympics fan. Fight through your nerves and enjoy a unique thrill ride that will make you appreciate the incredible athletes whose training you support through the price of admission.

      Definitely the highlight of the trip
      Bobsledding was a blast! Everyone there was super friendly and the pre-sledding instructions gave a really good idea of what to expect from the experience.

      WOW...What a ride!
      This is a must experience when in Whistler. The staff are amazing making you feel comfortable and safe during your orientation and ride. You get a complimentary photo at the end with your driver...but definitely purchase the video. Just watched it again now that we are home. Can't believe we went 123km. What a rush. I have a new respect for the athletes who compete in bobsleigh and now know kind of what they are going through.

      Don’t risk it. Just donate money if you want to help Olympic athletes
      DO NOT RIDE!!! We were asked to ride with an older gentlemen who did not have another person to ride with since his wife was spectating only. My husband was bumped to the #4 position at the request of the staff. There was no crash, but after the ride my husband experienced fractures on T9 and T10 and required an emergency room visit for pain control and diagnosis. We did not meet any criteria for “high risk” but clearly this activity is risky. I cannot stress enough that this is unsafe and we regret this experience.

      Never felt so alive
      Once in a lifetime experience, I still can’t believe I went bob sleding !!! Everyone at the center was nice and knowledgeable! Due to the nature of the event, and the physical conditions bob sleding can put on your body, they offered us several times if we wanted to opt out and get a refund, in a very understanding and compassionate manner. Our driver Chris was great! He keep us safe and was amazing! The G forces you feel when you turn the corner is unexplainable. I never felt more alive. 10/10 experience will recommend for everyone who is healthy

      DO IT!
      This was a BLAST! I would do it again in a heartbeat. The proceeds go directly to those in training, so you get to support those aspiring Olympians while also having fun. It's serious fun and not a light-hearted roller coaster ride.

      Ummm.... WOW!!!
      Everything you think it will be and more - so freaking cool!!!! Don't watch beforehand or you'll chicken out. It is that fast, that loud, that intense..... so much fun!!! Our pilot (Mackenzie Stewart) was the fastest one of our group. DO NOT DO THIS IF YOU HAVE ANY SPINE issues... they are very safety conscious, and you have the option to back out fully refunded at any time before getting in the sleigh. Helmets and neck pads are provided. If you've ever wanted to see what this would feel like - just do it.

      Passenger Bobsleigh was the ride of a lifetime!
      After the initial orientation talks, I was super nervous. They scare you on purpose because it is a dangerous sport. The ride was INTENSE. Our pilot, Chris did a great job getting us down safely and fast. Purchasing the video afterwards is 💯 worth it as I’ve re-watched it from both angles a bunch. Check this off my bucket list and now I’m ready to cheer the Bobsledders on during the next Olympics with a newfound respect for pulling all those G-forces regularly!

      This is truly a unique, bucket list experience that can never be forgotten. All the people, from check in to departure were AMAZING and really genuine in their encouragement and wanting to ensure you have a great time! The energy, atmosphere, safety, team work that goes into making sure this runs smoothly is easy to recognize. We were at the end of the day and the athletes and staff were still all smiles. It is as advertised in the way that I am sore the next day BUT the ride is first thing I woke up thinking about and can’t believe we actually did it! My only tip would be that if you’re reservation is on a Sunday at 4:30pm, the ski lifts at the resort stop running at 3:30om and this time has a LOT of traffic so leave early to get there on time. Have fun!

      Awesome experience
      My teenage daughter and I were a little apprehensive about doing this but it’s one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done. There is a safety talk before the ride that was quite scary but if you follow their instructions and like speed, the ride was awesome. I would recommend using the neck support to avoid neck pain in the next few days. We did and had no trouble. We had an Olympian driver and only my daughter and me in the sleigh. We reached a top spread of 123kph and it took just over 42 seconds from top to bottom. The first few corners were fairly tame and then the excitement and speed grew as we went down the track. Fabulous unique experience. Highly recommended.

    Was really great. A bit scary but in the end very glad we did it. Sitting in front is the ultimate experience.

    Not cheap but the money goes fully to the education of young sportier. We bought the two videos of the ride - also not cheap but compared to other activities what they charge for some simple pictures (white water rafting asked 40 CAD for bad quality fortos) it was definitely worth it.

    My wife and i were in Whistler for 2 days and decided we should try this. All I can say is WOW. We are both adventurous but this was a step above anything else.
    First of all we got a tour of the upper section of track and explanation of how the track is constructed and how it is iced for competitive use.
    Then you get the main event of a 50 seconds blast down the track.
    If you can, you should try this. I would say that the term once in a lifetime is often overused but for us, this definately a once in a lifetime. We are from Scotland so nothing like this at home.
    Jaxson was our driver and got us down in the fastest time of our session, so that added to our experience. Proceeds go to support athletes trining for the winter Olympics.

    Good value for money. Informative and fun. Staff go out of their way to make it enjoyable. There to reassure younger family members and hesitant parents! The videos and photos were unexpectedly reasonably priced so we came away with mementos of our once in a lifetime experience. Thank you!

    This was a wonderful experience that I have been looking forward to since I was about 15 years old, when I first saw bobsleighs in the Olympics. The employees were energetic and extremely knowledgeable about this sport. It was great learning so much about the track and how the ice is formed. We got to see different types of bobsleighs and equipment. It was pretty cool to be able to touch and feel and walk on the track itself. I felt completely safe in the hands of my driver, Aaron. This was an excellent experience!

    So, so, so, so, so much fun! Our family had a blast, It was such an unusual outing, and on the fastest bobsled course in the world. What an experience! We booked without knowing much, but thinking how fun to go bobsledding in the summer. Once you get there and check in, the intro overview needs some help - they started with all the the things that can go wrong, and little information about the special experience until you take the shuttle ride to the top of the course where the tour starts and you learn about the sport. Their intro said you'd never do it again, and by the end of the ride, we all got off our ride saying "let's do it again!" Rhyse was so great as our driver. We loved it!

    Despite the Orientation being a little too honest “ this isn’t a tea party on a wagon” they did a great job explaining what to expect. One of us was a little nervous and we’re out at ease by the presentation.

    It turned out to be an amazing experience, juts like they said it would be. It was a little rough (like they said it was going to be, tbf) but not bad. It feels so much fasten than I thought. Which was great for me.

    The coolest thing is that they explain how our adventure supports the athletes and allow them to train free while pursuing their dream. Even though we’re not Canadian it’s nice to know we can help.

    Highly recommend in the summer when we did it). If you come in winter you may see me there trying the Skeleton!

    What an amazing experience! I was traveling with my adult niece and her husband to Whistler. She had all of our itinerary planned including the bobsledding. I had no idea how the heck they would pull this off to give you the thrill in complete safety. Well they did and it’s worth every penny. The staff was very knowledgeable and professional. They answered all questions and added their humor to lighten one’s apprehension. We were loaded into the bobsled and were off. Our ride lasted about 52 seconds and it was a great experience.

    Loved the junior athletes guiding the tour on the walk down the track before the ride. There were a lot of warnings of how intense it is, don’t let it scare you, it’s not that bad and we went 94km/h. The person in the front gets the best ride experience, if you can I would suggest smallest to tallest so everyone can see the track on the way down (dependent on the age/size of the riders in your party).

    This is an activity to get your blood pumping and increase your heartrate. Enjoyable and educational. Learned about bobsleigh, luge and skeleton.

    This is the fastest track in the world apparently.

    The modified cars (on tires) are larger than the real cars. You go down with a driver from the outfit. It felt safe enough (helmets are provided) while still providing thrill seekers with a cool experience.

    I am not sure I would run back again but was glad to check it off the list.

    What a great time we had! We arrived a little too early (I read the time wrong) but that gave us a chance to walk around the site and have an up close look at the track. I can only imagine what it is like in winter and during competitions! We really enjoyed the tour and information from the athletes who are actually training for this sport. Glad that what we pay for the tour goes directly to support the athletes and their journey. For a brief moment during the run I thought, 'this feels a little slow'...as soon as that thought entered my mind we picked up speed and started into the turns. Very fun and would love to do it in the winter on the ice.
