Blazing Bobsleigh is a Dream Bobsleigh Dream Event that appears in the Nintendo DS version of Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games. The objective of the event is to complete the course in the fastest time, with the event taking place on Drivers' Highway. The starting course record for this event is 01:24.572.


In this event, the player starts automatically in this position. The player can steer their bobsleigh by using left and right on +Control Pad to steer with the front rider, and A Button and Y Button with the back rider. Each character can be used to steer individually, however if the player steers with both characters simultaneously, they can perform teamwork turns, which allow the player to perform sharper turns. Performing teamwork turns also fills a meter with energy, which, once full, can be used by holding R Button to travel at a greater speed. In this event, the player has a limited amount of health for their sled, which is depleted by being hit by opponents, crashing into walls, and knocking down snowmen. If the meter is fully depleted, the player will be disqualified from the event. The player can attack opponents by quickly pressing both of the direction buttons twice, which will cause their sled to slam to the side. The player can turn their sled around by pressing L Button, with the front side giving the player increased defense at the cost of speed, and the back giving vice versa. Along the course, the player will encounter Hearts, which replenish some of the player's HP, and Energy Cores, which partially fill the energy meter. The course also features electrified walls as obstacles, which stun the player and prevent them from entering commands for a short while if they hit them, as well as losing HP, and Dash Panels, which give the player a speed boost after passing over.
