    Fun family activity

    Great way to enjoy the mountain in simmer. Our 10 year old was a little nervous but she lived it. The carts have awesome breaks so you feel in control. They provide overalls, gloves and helments.

    Fantastic fun for the family

    We thoroughly enjoyed our two hour mountain carting experience. Carts are very easy to use, comfortable and light and the tracks are varied and challenging but not difficult. Our 12 year old daughter absolutely loved the experience- it was a real highlight of our trip, plus the views from the top of the mountain were sensational. Staff super friendly and helpful.

    Wonderful Experience

    I bought this as a birthday present for my 76 year old partner. We were by far the oldest ones there but what does age matter when you are having fun. It was great! Although much of the track is quite rough it makes for a challenging ride and with each run your speed improves as you get more used to the feel of the corners. We did eight runs in 2 hours and even had time for a walk about at the top to look at the amazing view. It is a good wide road up from the valley, not sealed but well graded. I fully recommend this activity. Very good value and heaps of fun for all ages.

    Poor course

    Only one course and not maintained. Full of large rocks and holes which limit speed and smoothness of the ride. Jarring even on straightaways. Could be fantastic. Either repair the course or put proper shock absorption on the carts.

    Great experience

    Great experience for the whole family. A real adrenalin rush. Would highly recommend. Great use of the hills in Summer. Would suggest wearing a long sleeve or hoodie.
