Thrilling! You won’t regret it. In addition to an incredible ride down the mountain in the bobsled, there were lots of educational placards along the way. Very cool memorabilia of the origins of bobsled. Fun for everyone

When we went after October 22, 2016, the ride was unavailable. I can't remember why (if it was closed for the season or if it was an unusual closure).
