Canada Olympic Park Bobsleigh Rides
If you haven't felt a good adrenaline rush in a while, this thrilling, eighty-second bobsleigh ride down a track used in the 1988 Olympic Games is well worth it. Using a specially built bobsleigh that requires neither steering nor brakes, sledders rocket down the ice-covered track at speeds in excess of 90 kilometers per hour (55.9 miles per hour). It's all perfectly safe, but is sure to get your blood pumping again. For most, the first ride is enough, but if you're ready for more, the staff at the Canada Olympic Park Bobsleigh will help you gear up for a second run.
