Adventure Activities under R100 - Cool Runnings

We recently decided to test out the facilities at Cool Runnings, South Africa's first Summer Tobbogan run. Cool Runnings is situated in Tygervalley in Cape Town and is relatively easy to find. This must be one of the best 'Bang for your Buck' activities available in Cape Town, with an unlimited daily ticket costing less than R100.

The day we went the weather was typically cold for Cape Town in the Winter, but luckily the rain held off, as they close down if there is any moisture on the track - the brakes tend not to be as effective in the wet!! It really is loads of fun for all ages; the younger children manage to overcome their fear very quickly and the older folks manage to bring out their inner child for the afternoon :)

This clearly is a professional and safe operation, with staff strategically positioned along the track to ensure that everyone has equal amounts of fun and plays nicely! Watch this space for a full review as soon as Cool Runnings is listed on
