Thrilling, exciting, spectacular! The bobsled run is worth the money. After all, where else can you ride the same course that Olympians rode? The whole 1980 Olympics was magical in this small mountain town of Lake Placid---be part of the enduring magic! Ride that sled!

When we went after October 22, 2016, the ride was unavailable. I can't remember why (if it was closed for the season or if it was an unusual closure).
