    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The Kids had more fun than me & I loved it!

    The scenery was great, the staff were wonderful and the karts terrifically fun. Took my girls up (13yr + 11yrs). The first run down the hill they were tentative and a few tears were shed but by the 2nd and 3rd runs they were racing as fast as they could. It's like the mountain version of the luge.
