I absolutely loved this activity! Walking the track, hearing the mission, safety training is comprehensive, staff are professional and kind...why 2 stars?

Two people in my roller sled got concussions during the ride. I hate to say, but this event is not very safe for old people or people not strong enough to brace themselves laterally. We hit some side bumps that have your head rapidly slam again the side of the roll cage with high momentum. For those sitting behind the first person, you cannot see anything or brace yourself for bumps. So ultimately you’re blind for ~50 seconds getting slammed in the head.

I truly want to give this 5 stars, but there should be some adjustments made, some examples:
1) raise the roll cage so that it’s not in line with a head impact
2) start at a lower turn for less momentum
3) add a better padding system

Dear Jason,

Thank you very much for your feedback about your experience.

We are sorry to hear that the summer bobsleigh ride caused discomfort for members of your group. Unfortunately this was not brought to our attention after the ride, so we would love to follow up with you directly as our guest services and medical staff would like to further understand the circumstances of this incident. Feel free to contact us at info@whistlerslidingcentre.com.

The safety of our visitors, athletes and staff is our biggest priority at the Whistler Sliding Centre. We always look at ways of improving our programs, so thank you for your suggestions!

Our public rides are real sport experiences that are designed to give participants a realistic understanding of the sliding sports from an athletes’ point of view. While we run the activity in specifically modified equipment for more comfort and from lower start points on the track, the rides are still rather strenuous and physical in nature which we communicate to our guests before the ride.

Again, we are sorry that your experience was not a positive one, and we would be very happy to follow up with you on this.

Thank you
Whistler Sliding Centre

Booked this adventure as this is something only whistler can offer. Loved the tour of the track and all the people who work there are great. The ride itself was amazing and this is a non profit organisation which was a great way to spend money and help the up and coming athletes. Five star

My husband & I had a super fast ride on the summer bobsleigh. We were screaming around those corners--definitely a unique ride for us!
