Overview

The Bobsled Experience opens for summer 2024 on June 26th!

Two children on the Bobsled Experience at Mt Van Hoevenberg, Lake Placid, NY.

One of only a few locations on earth where you can experience this one-of-a-kind Olympic sport for yourself. Reach speeds of up to 50 miles per hour on our mile long track, zooming through banked turns and zigging and zagging along the course. It’s a once in a lifetime experience for an adrenaline seeker!

During the winter season passengers ride a bobsled on metal runners on an ice track and in the summer months when there is no ice, the bobsled uses wheels on a concrete track.

Please review our ride requirements tab in advance of your ticket purchase.
