If you were old enough to remember the 1980 Winter Olympics, than visiting any of the Olympic sites is a thrill. We thoroughly enjoyed the Bobsled and Luge site. The chance to walk down the bobsled run was thrilling and we could not stop watching...More

The tour involves a bus ride to the top of the complex, the driver stops at a few spots and explains the history and details of that location. I was completely shocked when we reached the top, we were told that you are allowed to...More

Very cool place to see, and yes, the experience is not cheap at $75 per person, but wow, was it worth it. Going 60 mph in a sled (or whatever it is – its fast, you go a half mile in about 40 seconds) is...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).
