Lake Placid Bobsled Experience

If you've ever wondered what it feels like to be an Olympic slider, this is the place to start. Bobsled rides, with a professional driver and brakeman, begin at the half-mile point on the track and wind through turns known by sliders the world over. You'll feel the rumble of the sled thundering down the track. You'll speed through one turn, bank high on the next one and pick up speed on the straightaway. You'll go faster than you're allowed to drive a car through town. At the bottom, we are sure you will want to go for round two. Save 20% with your Olympic Sites Passport!

Your Experience Includes:

  • Bobsled lapel pin
  • Commemorative team photo
  • A team t-shirt
  • Membership in the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation
  • 20% off your second bobsled ride

Reservations are recommended but require at least 48 hour advance notice. If you do not have a reservation, tickets may be purchased in person during ride sessions, although space can be limited. Track & weather conditions permitting.
