What a great day out with my 4 year old. This is really what you call bonding time with your kids. Something for the adrenaline junkies and for the lady drivers lol. Will be back shortly. Erasmus & Mattiah

This venue was so much fun!! My entire family, including my 15 year old son, 9 year old daughter my husband and myself had a blast. The toboggan gets pulled up to the top of the rude on a type of conveyor system, at the top you enter into a steel tube and can slow down when necessary. Very easy... More

This was a fun activity to do in Cape Town, bob sledding through Tygervalley. It's something different.

Wonderful experience. Had a great time with my family. You can choose to how many times you ride. We did the 3x rides. Was sorry I did not take the 6 or more options. Staff very friendly. Great fun for kids.

This really was great fun but a better control system needs to be implemented if accidents are to be prevented. Fast reckless riders following behind slower first time riders is a recipe for disaster. Yes, you can blame the riders and take no responsibility but inevitably the responsibility rests with owners and management. It was fun, it was thrilling, it... More

We had such fun time as family at Cool Runnings. We purchased their family package and all of us felt it offered enough rides for all. It was safe and the staff were very helpful. Real value for money! We highly recommend it for anyone looking for fun!
