Bobsled in Prague

There is a long (snow-less) bobsled track in Prague, right above "Podvinni" park (over the tracks) or right below "Prosecka" street. You pay 50 Crowns for a ride ($2), with various discounts available. The nice thing is it operates throughout the whole year, even after dark (strong lights illuminate the track). There is also a restaurant, playground for children etc...

You can see the video of the entire ride (and my feet) here. Remember that this was rather safe ride and I was braking almost constantly (yes, the sled has brakes controlled by a lever) because I didn't want to lose my camera and/or limb.

I remember that last time we didn't use break at all. Result: bruises, scratches, lost glasses, ripped up jeans etc.

there is at least one , the final curve where you need to brake :)))

but I found it a little bit borring, even when you are drunk [although its forbidden to ride drunked]its boring :)
