Had my two older kids go for a ride on the quarter mile bobsled run. It was spectacular and there were quite a few spots to take pictures and view others going down as well before their run. The kids loved it! To top it off the had an actual driver from the 2010 Olympics! Great time.

I am claustrophobic so talked myself through the mental part. It was such a rush I would do it again. 2 guides control the sled and It is expensive but a great experience.

We really enjoyed this adventure. We booked ahead and didn't wait very long (maybe 5 min) and they took us too the top. The crew was kind and friendly. When we were done they took a photo of our whole crew.

We have done the bobsled and luge in the past, and this year did the skeleton. Where else can you get these experiences? Definitely a major "to do" in Lake Placid or in the area.

Did the bobsled experience. So much fun. It was expensive but glad we did it. Staff was so great. Our driver and break man were awesome. Kids loved it. Highly recommend biting the bullet regarding the cost and going.

If visiting the area, this is an area of interest. The staff was welcoming and efficient, the ride was fun, a once in a life time experience, even though a bit pricey. A greater appreciation for the olympians when you visit these complexes up close.

Bobsledding is a rare opportunity. The staff was great and helpful. It is a quick ride and worth every dime. You start off slow and go fast! It reminded me of an old wooden roller coaster. Get goggles or bring your own. It's a rare must do. Go for it!!

While in or near Lake Placid, don't miss the opportunity to do this! We made reservations before we even left for this vacation and would recommend as they are only open for this certain days and times. The day we went, there was a sign on the door saying they were sold out, so no hope for walk ins. You... More

Once in a lifetime experience and a real adrenaline rush (if a bit pricey). We probably hit around 60 miles an hour in our 55 second ride. Staff was friendly and helpful. A minor mix up with the downloading or our photos but was resolved quickly and professionally.
