Bobsled and Luge Complex, Lake Placid
(3.9/5 based on 600 reviews on the web)
On the site of the 1980 Winter Olympic games, Bobsled and Luge Complex turns you into an Olympic competitor for 45 seconds. You'll be picked up at the base of the Olympic grounds and transported to the top, where you can take a tour of the upper grounds. Then, you'll be fitted with a helmet and assigned a brakeman and driver. You and your team will slide at more than 88.5 kph (55 mph) down an ice-covered track. Bobsled rides operate seasonally, so visit the attraction's website to make sure they are running during your visit.
