Good value and fun
Jul 2018 • Family
Two adults and two young adults visited July 2018. We have done a lot of these over the years, the kids have always loved them and so do the adults. The Steckenberg sommer rodelbahn is good fun for all ages. It's true that there are not the same safety-standards and fuss as in the UK.....but that's the fun of it. You just need to know how to brake and ride at a speed that you are comfortable with. There is a small children's play area and a couple of restaurants nearby. Costing €15 euros for 6 turns we had 3 turns each. . €10 for kids is great value. It's very different to it's much larger neighbour at Oberammergau, but loads of fun (and a bit less scary if I am honest!) I have done both of these local rodelbahn/coasters and both are a real buzz

Sommerrodelbahn
Jun 2017 • Couples
We finally found the Sommerrodelbahn in Bad Kholgrub it looks like a ski resort chair lift most tourists take it for the views, zi woukd like an enclosed cable car but this style, is the only option here.

Beautiful scenic Unterammergau
Apr 2017
We had a short stay at Unterammergau one long weekend. Just one km away, the Steckenberg Sommerrodelbahn (summer Toboggan) opened up that day. We went on the ride 3 times and it was great fun for both adults and kids as well. The pulley takes you up the hill, and releases you down a set of curves and turns, at a speed you can control.. all set against mountains and scenery thats unbeatable. We went on full throttle, and enjoyed it to the core!. Not very expensive either.

Watch out! Unsafe!
Sep 2016 • Family
Well, at least the view from the top was nice. There are no seat belts on the "toboggans" and there is a profound lack of safety instructions. At the end of the ride, my daughter got confused about how to stop the "toboggan" and rear-ended mine at full speed (with me in it). Since there was no seat belt, she was thrown off and her tail bone hit the raised edge of the track. The paramedic wanted to take her to the hospital emergency room, but my wife was able to determine that the pain was exclusively in her tail bone for which there is no medical treatment other than pain reliever. One of the vertebrates in my back was severely bruised and is still bruised 10 weeks later. We should have wondered why there was an ambulance stationed in the parking lot! Injuries are probably not uncommon.

A short break with lots of fun
May 2016
Get a half of a (sunny) day and have a few rides! It is fun, a great experience for kids (the little ones can ride with an adult), a good group fun and for the teen / young dads... just push the speeder to the max and have a speedride. :) I had some conerns about the the slide, the speed and safety but it is all settled up right, you can control the sliding, even stop or slow down to min. if ride with kids.
Definitly a good alternative fun, if you have not tried a mountan slide so far, now is the time. The prices are like at skiing, 15 euro for 6 rides, 12 for kids under 16 years.

A Lot of Fun for Not a Lot of Money
Sep 2015 • Couples
My wife and I decided to ride the Sommerrodelbahn during our stay in Oberammergau. It is located just a few minutes drive north on the main road. When we first arrived we saw a lot of children with their parents and thought that maybe this was a kiddy ride, but not at all - it is a lot of fun.

We purchased a 6-ride card for I think 15 Euros that enabled both of us to ride three times. Operation is simple, there is a handle on each side of the cart. Push forward to go fast and pull back to slow down. The tow to the start of the ride probably takes longer than the ride itself, but the ride is exciting. On the way down at two points I saw signs in German indicating to brake. When I asked my wife if she had seen the signs she said "what signs, I didn't know you were supposed to brake?" If you are in the area with children it is an activity they will enjoy, but even we thought it was great.

Fun if you like being screamed at.
Jun 2015 • Family
The Rodelbahn in itself is quite fun. Not too expensive. Fast. Quite the the adrenaline rush.

Then we get to the bottom. The owner/operator yelled at us to get off the micro second we got to the bottom. I said, "Yes, yes we're getting off." He come over an starts yelling at me in front of my daughter that our weight is bad for the conveyor belt the bahn is sitting on and that it costs a ton of money. I tried explaining to him that, after the adrenaline rush, the riders need a half a second to catch their breath, that I have my daughter on my lap and that I need a second to catch my breath and get my bearings." Him, "Well, that's certainly the first time ever and you can follow instructions if I give them to you!!!"

Unbelievable! I'm posting a photo of the conveyer belt. You'd imagine that the guest would have until the orange tassels to get off! NO WAY! That would destroy the precious rubber bands of the conveyor belt. No! Be prepared to jump your behind out of the car the millisecond it come careening in at full speed!

Almost like the Olympics!

We'd recommend this to anyone. We really enjoyed our one ride down the Sommerrodelbahn. It was inexpensive and we didn't brake at all on the way down. A great thrill even for middle aged people like us.
