My family (husband, self, 13yo daughter) all did the bobsled ride and then I did the luge. We all enjoyed the bobsled ride and I LOVED the luge. If I have the chance to do either one again, I will do the luge. (They don't let you drive the bobsled, and it's harder to see where you are going.) Buy... More

We drove 7 hours just to do the bobsled as part of our bucket list challenge for the month. Yes... it is expensive, yes... it only lasts 48 seconds, but how many can actually say that they rode down an Olympic bobsled run? We didn't have much of a wait to ride, we booked in advance. The staff, especially the... More

Wanted to do this with the family to check it off the bucket list. The price doesn't justify the length of the ride. HOWEVER, it is just about the coolest thing I have done with my kids.

Is the first year our family ever visited this place. Went to the local info center for more information about this place, it was recommended. When we got there they were doing no such things that day. Basically the place was closed and the manager said there was nothing he could do today, only lessons

Yes, this is an expensive activity but it does help support the facility that trains US bobsledders for world competition. The track is newer track than the 1980 track, which is still there but no longer used. The drivers and runners were professional and I felt safe during the whole experience. This is a fast thrill ride and if you... More

it's been 20 years since I last visited the complex. My kids signed up to do the bobsled ride and they had a blast. The price had gone up a real lot, so it was a tough call, and thats why only they did it. It's a once in a lifetime experience that everyone should enjoy once.

Bobsledding was a fun experience! The staff shuttles you up the hill and back down. It is cute that your names get announced as you go down the hill. The curves at the end sneak up on you. Pricey, but a good one-time experience.

We were in Placid last weekend. This trip down the bobsled run was amazing. WOW!!!! It was ridiculously fast but no where near what the real Bobsledder's do. They are out of control. Our guides make us want to do it again. Thank you Chevy for your support!

This was one of those experiences where expectations were high but yet the experience far exceeded anything we could imagine. Weather was nice for Lake Placid, the line was fairly short and the speed was fantastic. Pretty bumpy ride so I would not recommend for those with neck or back issues. This is one of those items to cross off... More
