We took the basic "bob raft" experience, where 4 people travel down the bobsleigh run in a well-padded flexible bathtub. However, it still reaches speeds of 80 km/h and goes right up on its side going round the faster bends, so you do get a...More

We loved this! You get one go down the bobsleigh track in a customised bobsleigh (padded for us non Olympic athletes). Although a very short experience, we all loved it! Very exciting and terrifying at the same time.

Took advantage of the awesome bobsleigh experience at La Plagne on the Albertville Olympic bobsleigh track. Very difficult to describe the run without a common frame of reference but 4g is twice what you’d experience on a roller coaster and as the track isn’t smooth...More

Went here to get a pizza. Should have taken a burger. It obviously was low season ( X-mas) because no-one cared. Locals, hardly. Foreigners, 1 drink. Pizza was not good. Way too much sauce from a can with little topping.
