What to Expect?

Your Passenger Bobsleigh Experience will begin with an orientation about your ride and track etiquette. After the orientation, you will be shuttled to your start position about two thirds up the track, where you will be fitted with a helmet. You will meet your pilot, and with the assistance of the track crew, be seated in the sled and go through the final safety checks. Listen as your team’s names will be announced on the big speakers! Once your sled gets the green light, track crew will give your sled a push, and the control tower will announce “bobsleigh in track”! As you will accelerate down the track, lean into the corners to assist your steering pilot in reaching top speeds of 125+ km/hr in the final corner. The uphill outrun will slow you to a stop at the finish dock, where the track crew will assist you to exit the sled. Line up for your commemorative photo, and take the shuttle back to Guest Services.
