Bobsleigh is a sport that involves sliding down an ice-covered track or an artificial incline that has been specially designed for this purpose on a sledge called bobsleigh, hence the name of the sport. It was developed back in 1880 in New York and the Swiss Alps simultaneously. Bobsleigh is played at various places in Prague. It gives you an adrenaline rush and is an extremely thrilling activity to participate with your friends and family. There are tracks of several lengths, and you can choose the one you prefer. Anyone can play this sport during the day or night as it is safe. However, it is advised for younger children to be seated on a sledge with an adult family member for safety reasons.
