Everyone who likes sports should visit the Olympic Oval. There's a short movie showing how hard it is to become an athlete and succeed (lots of training, falls, start over and over again). It's difficult to watch it without tears coming to your eyes. There's also an interesting simulator where you can “drive" a bobsled (great!) and another where you can "jump" from a ski platform (not so great). It's a very nice place to visit, specially if you are into sports. Nice staff, plenty of parking and a gift store. Also, Olympic medals from previous competitions all over the world are on display.
I was very impressed how they set up the Oval for local sports enthusiasts after the Olympics games. and the museum is very informative, and a few interactive games are there. Bobsled, ski jump, formula 1 -is definitely fun for a whole family
Usage exaggerated in their video. The simulations were lame and got boring really quickly. 2 of the actual simulations were out of order. The only one worth using was the racing one. My family and I were only there for thirty minutes, 10 was waiting, 15 was walking around, and 5 was actually using the few simulations that worked.
Played basketball here weekly for a few months. Friendly staff, and clean, high quality facilities. Expensive on a drop-in basis.
The Rox does not worth the time or money. Only 4 simulations, mostly out of order. Gym and the rinks look good though.
