We took my 11 and 9 year old to the bobsled run to give them a bit of a thrill on our recent vacation. We knew it would be expensive, but our kids are both pretty daring and they enjoy thrill rides. We thought this would be a unique experience for them given the location and the history of Lake Placid.
$60 per child, $8 each for my wife and I to watch. About 5 minutes for them to get in place and 43 seconds coming down the bobsled run. They get off and looked underwhelmed. Earlier in the summer we went to Hershey Park in PA and they rode the new SkyRush coaster. They thought that was far more thrilling than the bobsled.
It's unique, we don't regret letting them do it, but if you've been on a modern coaster, the thrill won't come close. Knowing what I know now, I'd save the money and rent the jetboat on Lake Placid for another hour.
