There are so few places in the world to see a bobsled course in person, so it felt like we had to check it out while we were in Lake Placid. You can pay $80 or $90 per person to... read more

Probably next of attraction that could be seen in certain period - winter. You don't see bobsley, you can't try. No explanation or guidness about object, technic etc. Very old, not trying to refresh it. Better impression in tv.

I called them in advance to see what they offer. Unfortunately, the bobsled was not available without appointment, and the next opening was in three days. They told me that I can visit the place and see the training.

I'd really recommend spending the money on the ride, it's a lot of fun. It's super well organised and every is very smooth from geting dropped off to finishing the ride. Just wish for how expensive it was that it lasted longer. Can't fault the operation though, incredible. Staff were super!

You can visit this complex without doing a luge or bobsled run. Nonetheless, the bobsled run is a fun experience. It is fast, and you do make some of those transitions (up and down and back again, quickly) you have seen watching the Olympics but you are with an experienced driver and break man. It is a tad pricey but... More

We have visited Lake Placid before and on that trip we experience the bobsled run. This is the reason for the return. So exhilarating!!! I think everyone MUST do it!!

We took a ride in the bobsled and had a blast! Quite an experience for sure! Highly recommend if you can handle rollercoasters. The driver and brakeman were friendly and competent. It was a treat to be able to watch skeleton and bobsled athletes practice while we were in town the beginning of March too.
