Ever wanted to recreate some of the most legendary scenes from Cool Runnings? Now's your chance! The Igls Bobsleigh Centre near Innsbruck, which hosted events during the 1976 Olympic Games, gives amateurs the chance to experience the thrill of a high-speed descent.
Constructed for the 1976 Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, the only artificial ice bobsleigh run in Austria is located at the foot of the Patscherkofel mountain and offers guests the chance to experience the ultimate rush at speeds of up to 120km/h. Visitors can either sit in a five-man bobsleigh piloted by a professional driver or launch themselves head-first down the run on a skeleton. The course is 1270 metres in length and has ten corners. Those in search of a truly unique exprience can even speed down in a giant wok (participants must be at least 18 years old). The bobsleigh runs is also open in summer. The best way to relax and calm your nerves in with a drink in the café-restaurant K14 at the bottom of the run.
