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

We didn't do the tour, so maybe that would make it more worth it, but the actual bob-sled ride was not available (from like Oct to Nov?) and that was what we'd wanted to try. We really missed out on that but understandable i guess...More

My husband and 2 children did the "bobsled experience" and all enjoyed it! It's a quick minute but probably a once in a lifetime experience! Tip: If you purchase the Olympic Passport, you'll get 20% off your bobsled ride. Also, the sled travels quicker on...More

So much fun! We rode a bobsled on same track as Olympic athletes! We had experienced driver and braker which was reassuring for sure. Traveled about 50-60 mph down track. What a great experience. I could envision the trill of being at the Olympics.

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).
