There is no greater honor for an athlete than participating in the Olympic Games. For the last century, bobsled racing has been one of the most popular and thrilling winter sports. Now, looking up at the 1,490-foot long mountain bobsled trail winding through the sky, you’ll feel more respect than ever for the awesome achievement of Olympic athletes.
Alpine Bobsled is an entirely original coaster that you ride inside the track. In fact, there is no track at all—you will simply speed-glide like a bullet down the mountain, on a smooth high-walled course that is identical to what the Olympians ride. This authentic Olympic adventure was inspired by the Olympic games of 1980 and 1932 in nearby Lake Placid.
When you enter the Alpine ski lodge, you will be given your bobsled for this world class race. You can ride with Canada, Italy, or proudly represent your home team; the U.S. There’s even a sled for the famous Jamaican bobsled team!
Your sled will pulse through the interior of this snow white half pipe. There are no rails to ride on—you’ll be blasting over a completely smooth surface, surfing the walls of every turn like a rocketing team of bobsledders at 35 miles per hour! With no track whatsoever to guide you, you’ll feel more like the captain of your Olympic team than the plain old thrill-seeking coaster fiend you were when you boarded the ride.
You’ll wind all the way down the hillside from 64 feet up, banking hard up the high walls at every stomach-churning twist. Then you’ll win the first ever gold medal in fun.
