Cool-Runnings Toboggan Family Park

Tobogganing in Cape Town.

Cool Runnings Tobogan Family Park
The perfect grassy slope in Durbanville was selected as the most favorable location for Africa's first summer toboggan track, established in 2007.  A stone’s throw from world class shopping at the Willowbridge and Tygervalley Shopping Centres and adjacent to a golf driving range and velodrome the Cool Runnings Tobogan Family Park offers wonderful fun for the whole family.
Only one in Africa
Invented by a German toboggan enthusiast, the series of interlinked steel half pipes create a ice-less toboggan run experience that is safe and fun for the entire family.  There are many similar tracks such as this one to be found dotted around the world, but the Cool Runnings toboggan track here in Cape Town is the one and only of its kind in Africa. 
Happy families on slippery slopes
Cool Runnings is a very popular destination for kids' parties, as well as corporate functions, team building or bachelor parties, so be warned, things can get quite busy here.  Should you be so inclined you can let your sled loose and generate speeds of up to 40 km/hr or gentle roll in at a much more sedate pace – all this is up to you and can be controlled using the break on the toboggan.
The venue is open every Tuesday to Friday from 11h00 to 18h00 and on Saturday and Sunday (as well as during school holidays and on Public Holidays) from 9h00 until 18h00.  Any rain will make the rides dangerous and as a result the venue does not operate for much of the winter and if it is raining.

We just had a great outing with the family. Kids were so thrilled that they asked if we could go back tomorrow again. Service and especially quality of food was great. Just go for the Combodeals which can be shared and is much cheaper than single rides. We defenitely will be back.
