Thrilling outdoor, downhill toboggan 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. Licensed bar available.

Was nice but went for the fast rush. You cant go fast cause they only have 1 track. Had miss daisy driving as well which spoiled the experience., for all 18 rides! Will not go back. Didn’t get the rush that was expected but that was fully the miss daisies riding as well. The staff is nice, however Sarah stood out. She went out of her way to make our visit pleasant. Thanks Sarah!

What a disappointment!! Not only extremely dangerous, but disgusting service and absolute disgraceful attitude!!

My 7 year old went down the track with her father. They followed all the (pathetically explained) instructions. They did not go fast. And yet the cart tipped over, causing her to fall with her face against the side, getting multiple lacerations and abrasions, and also chip 2x teeth.

No support on the track itself. In spite of a possible head or neck injury (luckily she's fine), we had to walk al the way down ourselves. OK fine, we had an escorts for about 5meters during all of this, but that's it. Then came the shocking excuse of a first aid kit.

Up to here, I could still accept it. But the dismissive attitude from the so called manager, and the absolute refusal to give us a refund (this was our first ride), was an eye opener to how much they really care about their clients.... Absolutely nothing! As long as they can have your money, they don't care about your well being, or safety!

A hard pass for us. Would definitely advise everyone to steer clear of this dangerous place!

Great fun! We bought a family package, with the 8 year old riding with Dad and the teenagers (12 and 14) riding on their own, so we we all had 4 or 5 runs down it. Your first run is slower and tenative, by the end we were hardly using the brakes, which brought lots of smiles.

The place itself is really well looked after. I guess it is still quieter than usual, post-CV19, but we had no queues (there were maybe only 10-20 other people there) and we were we there about 90 mins.

It is a bit out of Cape Town (20-30 mins) but ubers were cheap and easy to arrange and we would highly recommend it if you have a couple of hours spare.

If you are willing to wait 40min for one ride. This will be for you. We end up leaving and coming back another day. Same story. With a wait longer than 40min.

Got injured very badly and so did my daughter of 5 years old. I believe if instructions were clearer this would not have happened. If we were told how fast this ride was as well as what to do to slow speed down it would have helped a lot. All we were told was to hold the lever down and pull up in case of an emergency stop.

Fantastic venue for parties! Fuss free from booking to the end, with loads of fun in between. We had 7 to 17 year old's, boys and girls, having the best time and all smiles on everyone's faces. Even the parents got into the spirit and had a blast. Two hours weren't nearly long enough so we're all planning to visit again. The staff are very helpful and organised and take care of everything for you. We were also pleasantly surprised at how pretty the venue is with lovely landscaping and views, and very pleasant and clean facilities. The hot dogs and fries were a big hit too, and adults could relax with a chilled cup or bottle of their favourite tipple. All-in-all, this has to be the most stress-free and well received party that I've ever hosted. See you again soon!

Great experience. and well organized place.

Staff is thoughtful and know what they are doing. Rides take about 1 - 2 mins from the top to the bottom not including the ride up the hill.

An exhilarating experience where you can push yourself or just take a easy ride for the more nerves riders.

I would recommend this for parties, friends and office functions.

We attended a Kids party today. Four or the kids did not complete their meal. I asked Two staff members if we were able to get a Take-Away container - the containers they serve their meals in - to take the paid for pizza home - they referred me to Kiosk to engage the manager - the tongue lashing and verbal abuse I had to endure from the manager - despite offering to even pay for the 4 containers. He was rude and abrupt and loud. Shouting at a Female. The Mom hosting the party proceeded to also request. He raised her voice was told her to take her money and party and leave the premises. All this in front of his staff and other guests. Whilst the venue itself is a great adventure - the owner / manager rude obnoxious behavior is no example for minor children. Understandable now why both staff sent me downstairs as no doubt with a boss like that - I would be afraid also. South African citizens oppose gender based violence - it’s not acceptable to verbally abuse paying customers - especially woman.
