This place is very exciting. We had Olympic venue passes. Walk along some snowy, slippery walkways to a viewing station aside one of the bobsled curves. They have tourist rides of the bobsled run and we watched as the sled rocketed by at two locations....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).
