If you like a hike and the weather is fine you can walk and make a day if it. As you leave Innsbruck there is a pleasant climb through the woods. We took just over 2 and a quarter hours from Innsbruck rail station (having booked some weeks in advance). Take a GPS device if you do walk as the tracks aren’t signposted as much as you’d like (so we stopped several times to get the right direction). We then got the ski bus back for free using our Welcome cards.
The main bobsleigh run lasted 59.65 seconds and we reached a maximum speed of 115.99 km/hour (with two paying punters, plus a ‘driver’ and a braker i.e. 4 in all ). I could feel my head push down with the G Force. A minute is enough of an experience! We had a good guided talk as we walked to the top explaining the different parts of the track. I’ll certainly appreciate the sport more when watching in the future.
It was well organised and all 11 slots were over reasonably quickly (so not much waiting around).
If you have someone free get them to take some video footage at the end (which will just be a few seconds). And stick your Strava, or similar, on to record your minute for yourself (we got a certificate confirming we did it and piece of paper with our times compared to the others taking part in the session).
I’d like to have heard a bit more about how the bobsleigh works (as the bit we were told was really interesting).
The cost makes you think twice - but maybe that’s a good thing.
