Thrilling outdoor bob-slay track 1,25 km long for young and old! No need to walk. An automated lift will always pull you to the top. Delicious food and drinks on premises.

Visited with 2 teenagers, who both have a keen sense of adventure. They found this activity very boring. And hopelessly over priced. We only stayed for 2 rides each and left. Staff at kiosk not very helpful either.More

Surprised about your comment as I believe that R25.00 for one ride when you share a "Happy Family Combo' ticket is not expensive at all. And should there be leftover rides than you can even keep it and use them next time as they do...More

10 out of 10. As a mother, I could not stop riding the rides. Every ride is just not enough, you want to ride again and again. Definitely worth every penny. Great family entertainment.

Great family entertainment. It is better to get there early to avoid the long queue and the hot sun!
