Drove 2.5 hours from VT to enjoy this with a friend for her birthday. Fortunately they were still open at 4 p.m. and we did not have to wait in any lines. Good thing as we would have been very disappointed to spend $98 each for our 48 sec. of "fun." The folks who work there are seriously jaded and... More

Even if the only time you ever watch luge or bobsled on television is during the Olympics, being here is quite a positive experience, especially if there are luge or bobsleds runs occuring. While viewing areas are sparse, catching the blur of these athletes zooming down the track is very exciting. Seeing it live is very memorable. The sounds of... More

Went with my wife and took the bobsled run/ride what a rush once in a lifetime experience!!! You get in with a driver and brakeman and make a half run. What an awesome experience. I'm coming back in winter next time and doing the run on ice I can't wait.

The thrill of going down the trail is indescribable. We want to go back and try it on the snow. Worth doing.

But better if you go "in season". We missed getting a ride on the bobsled by one week. That would have been spectacular. We are coming back in season.

Saw the luge race on Friday morning. Great announcer and group watching. Race was very exciting. Wish there were outdoor TVs to see more the way there is down at coffee shop. Will certainly be back for more!

Went here on a cold rainy day, didn't know what to expect but as it turned out it was an awesome experience! There where skeleton time trials going on and we got to stand at the covered track and watch!

We took advantage of purchasing the Value Passport. We stopped at the Bobsled and Luge Complex for 45 minutes. My 12 year old son loved the fact that we walked on the bobsled track!

Located about 7 miles South East from the visitor’s center, it’s another great Olympic site to visit, though a little bit run down. You can use your Olympic Passport or it is $9. You enter through a little wooden chalet/gift shop and walk up to the second floor which has signs describing the event and a view of the old... More

We reserved tickets for a ride for the family. We were up in town for a wedding and thought it would be a once in a lifetime activity - and it was! The venue is a little "1980's" but don't let that fool you. The bobsled ride was really fast and fun for everyone in the family - ages 7... More
