Lake Placid Bobsled Experience

If you've ever wondered what it feels like to be an Olympic slider, this is the place to start! Led by our professional driver and brakeman, you'll begin at the half-mile point on the track and wind through Olympic turns known by sliders around the world. Feel the rumble of the sled thundering down the track, speed through one turn, bank high on the next one, and pick up speed on the straightaway. Let's just say you'll go faster than you're allowed to drive a car through town! Save 20% with your Olympic Sites Passport!

  • Bobsled lapel pin
  • Commemorative team photo
  • A team t-shirt
  • Membership in the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation
