Bobsleigh Experience Product Description

To have a well-developed sense of adventure is a true gift. Now you can treat someone to one of the best experiences of their life! Enjoy some of the most heart-thumping, adrenaline-pumping thrills in the world! These adventure days away are the perfect extravagances you could possibly want yourself and your best friends to enjoy. Get in on the action-packed adventures now!

What is Bobsleigh? Put simply, it's two or four members trying to get a bobsleigh down to the bottom of an icey track as quick as possible. It begins by pushing the bob off the start and everyone quickly getting in. This is the most important part of the run as a lot of time can be lost. During an Olympic run the bob can achieve speeds approaching 90mph and the passengers can pull up to 6g in the corners! The same as Formula 1 cars! Once in, the crew keep their heads down, forming a compact surface with minimum drag until they reach the end, when they can finally catch their breath.

On the day the high performance coaches will guide you through the skills and strategies required for the 'Formula One' of ice sports to make your experience exhilarating, fun, and safe. The session starts with an introduction to the simulated bob run, then it's a thorough safety briefing. Once you are kitted out with the correct safety gear, it's out to the track to learn the sport and techniques used. You will have a trial run on the 'start facility' first built for athletes to train for the Salt Lake City Olympics. And since then has been instrumental in developing the GB World Champion women's bob team and Gold, Silver and Bronze Olympic medals for the GB women bob skeleton athletes. The start facility is a true replica and although it is not on ice, you can achieve speeds of up to 30 mph (total track length is approximately 60m - this is not a full length track and there will be up to 3 other participants in the bobsleigh with you). You will have a chance to get plenty of practice on 2 and 4 man, before being put to the test on the timed runs.
