My son and daughter in law took the plunge. They loved it. It’s expensive for a quick minute. We had a bus tour of the complex, showing the old and new tracks for bobsled, luge and skeleton.

We came for the bobsled ride...which was a blast...it didn't disappoint, but the highlight was the tour of the course. In the summer you're allowed to walk down the track, which is too cool for words!

Disgrace to not have more buses during summer tourist season. Told that it would be a 15-20 wait for the bus. Waited 30-35 minutes in drizzle rain and damp weather. Not even a place to sit nor undercover. There is a room off the deck,...More

I did the bobsled ride and I cannot even describe it. It is absolutely amazing. I then toured the complex and it was so informative. I cannot wait to go back in the winter (and I hate the cold)
