When visiting Lake Placid, you should check this out. You can even do a bobsled run at times (kind of pricey). It is impressive. You will want to see both bobsled and luge. This might mean two visits.

My husband and I on separate occasions have done the bobsled run and it is well worth the cost of risking your life and a chunk of your pay check to take a ride. It is very quickly over but where else in the world...More

Yes, my son wore one on his helmet during the ride... It did however pop off and luckily landed in my lap behind him! Enjoy it!

Can you ride the bobsled in the winter? Or does it only run in summer months.
