We came to watch World Cup. It was an awesome experience. There are some heated buildings to go into to warm up. The best experience was watching the start, finish area and they turns. It amazes me how fast they are going. Incredible.

We visited this complex one afternoon and were given a schedule of events taking place the next day. So, we went back the next day to see the National Junior Luge Competitions! Fascinating! The speed at which these luge competitors travel is frightening, to me!...More

The trac wasn't open but we got to see lots off old Bobsleds and the finish line of the course. It was hard to walk to the Top were the start was because we didn't have the right shoe's. We enjoyed the History

We went here as a part of the Olympic Passport. We opted not to spend the money for the short ride on the bobsled, but watched others. If you do not mind spending the money and want to be able to say that you did...More

It was fun to see where the Olympic bobsled event took place but there is a lot of walking and climbing involved and it is not very exciting. The little museum is very small.

Yes, the experience is expensive, but if you have the Olympic sites passport it is a little cheaper. You also receive a free T-shirt, as well as a little pin. The cost is nothing compared to the once in a lifetime experience that you get...More

Stopped at the complex on our way home, very disappointing. There was no tour or “experience(actual ride)” that day. If we called ahead and known we wouldn’t have bothered to stop. Paid $4 to walk around, watch training on cctv. Nobody to explain where to...More

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).
