Cool-Runnings Cape Town is Africa’s first Downhill Tobogganing Track and, even though it gets icy cold in winter, this toboggan requires no snow to be a fantastic family outing all year round.
Custom-made toboggan – No snow required!
Now volunteer work in Cape Town has become even more exciting! Situated in Bellville, one of Cape Town’s northern suburbs, Cool-Runnings is an intricate series of track steel tracks that seem to disappear up the never ending hills of Bellville. The toboggans run up and down these steel tracks to provide a thrilling ride you won’t soon forget as your toboggan is hauled up the hill by re-enforced steel cables before hurtling down the slopes.
Top speed of 40km per hour
