Cool Runnings is the only toboggan track in Africa, and with sunny skies and warm temperatures, these toboggans definitely aren’t running on the traditional snow and ice. Instead, Cool Runnings toboggans run on a stainless steel track, each seating one or two people. Your ride starts with a pull up a steep grassy slope by a hook at the bottom of your toboggan. Family fun – instant thrill.
A first for Africa. Cool-Runnings 1.25km Toboggan Track in Cape Town is where speed freaks can reach 40 km per hour on our downhill steel half-pipe. The automatic pulley drags your sled to the top of the hill, then woohoo – off you go. All you have to do is steer and regulate your speed with the easy hand-brake.
Tobogganing Cool-Runnings-style involves planting your bum on a bob-sled and speeding down the hillside on a 1.2-kilometre steel-pipe track. The speed of all the toboggans is brake-controlled and the rides are very safe for children. Little ones under the age of eight have to be accompanied by an adult.
