An adaptation of the popular winter sport in Europe has come to Africa’s southern tip. An operator called Cool Runnings has put together a 1.25km (0.7mi) steel toboggan slope which runs down the hillside near the Velodrome in Durbanville.
Tickets cost R20 and are available from Web Tickets, www.webtickets.co.za.
The toboggans can reach speeds of 40km/h (25mph). For visitors who are looking to head down the hill more than three times, a day pass is ideal as it allows you to skip most of the queue.
Cool Runnings is open from 09h00 to 18h00 every day.
The video below, courtesy of smithcza, provides an insight into the tobogganing experience at Cool Runnings.
