About this Tour
Cool Runnings is the only toboggan track in Africa,1.25 km long, and with sunny skies and warm weather, these bobsled definitely aren’t running on the traditional snow and ice. Instead, Cool Runnings bobsled run on wheels on a stainless steel track, each seating up to two people. Your ride starts with pulling you up to the top of the hill. From there, your sled is released and you’ll go flying down the track with 17 corners, S-bends and a tunnel. You can control your own speed, but adrenaline junkies can easily reach up to a whopping 40km/h. The sled slows down before your are reaching the braking belt, so you have nothing to worry about.
Cool Runnings Toboggan Family Park is just outside Cape Town, situated on the slopes of Tygervalley. The Park also boasts a large, covered terrace, yummy food and drink facilities and a bar, making it the perfect outdoor spot for corporate functions, team buildings, family outings and kid's parties.
