We celebrated my daughter's birthday today at Cool Runnings and they had soooo much fun! 4 eleven year olds and 2 nine year olds accompanied by 2 adults definitely enjoyed every minute! It was cool that they could set their own pace although the little ones were asked to speed it up a bit which I did not agree with.... More

It was so easy to organize and when we arrived there they were super organised, the food was delicious, the venue looked beautiful... More

10/10 for Cool Runnings Cape Town!!! I really owe Janet and Frank and the rest of their staff this review. We celebrated my sons 9th birthday with 14 of his mostly 8 to 9 year old friends at Cool Runnings. The boys had so much fun. What a lovely venue. From the entrance it just looks pretty and neat. The... More

We had a fab time. The staff were knowledgeable and friendly, the toboggans & course were well maintained, and as we went on a week day there was no queue (although if there had been a queue there was plenty of shade). Hot food and drinks were hot, ice creams and cold drinks were cold. Lots of space to sit... More

The kids absolutely loved this experience and my husband and I had a ball too. The place is well staffed and they are quite strict with safety which is good as one can easily get hurt if you go too fast. I also lost my cel phone and although I retrieved it, it had been run over by the toboggan... More

We enjoyed tobogganing with a 12 year old girl, a boy of 10 and 4 adults. The venue is well designed and kept. It needs to be pointed out to those who like to push the boundaries that yes, you can get hurt if you don't use the brakes when you go too fast, even though nothing serious for us.... More

Situated a just short drive outside Cape Town city centre , cool runnings is an amazingly fresh family activity. The year round Bob sledding experience is not only safe but lots of fun for people of all ages .Staff were very helpful and thus added to the exhilarating experiance..very well priced ..a must for anyone visiting the area.

the kids loved it and so did the adults. Was pretty awesome. I just think the prices could be a bit less for the rides. I would rather go there than to Ratanga junction which is a complete rip off.
