Ocho Rios Shore Excursion: Bobsledding Tour at Mystic Mountain

Bobsledding tour at Mystic Mountain

Bobsledding may seem a strange thing to do on a Caribbean island, but this is Jamaica, man – home of that famous 1988 Winter Olympic team of four Jamaican bobsledders, later made infamous in the movie Cool Runnings. You can get the full Jamaican bobsledding experience while in port in Ocho Rios.

On arrival at your bobsledding destination, you'll be intrigued by the layout and design of the park. Stretching from Dunn’s River Falls at a height of 700 feet (215 meters), the winding 3,200-foot (975-meter) course is an exotic habitat for local flora and fauna. With natural springs, indigenous plants and diverse species of birds, the landscape you will ride through is a great introduction to Jamaica’s beautiful rainforest. The track was built into the existing natural landscape, ensuring the least amount of impact on the local wildlife as possible.

Your Jamaican bobsled adventure begins with a little instruction, and you’ll soon find that the bobsled is simple and easy to operate. A hand brake allows you to control your speed at all times. It’s up to you if you want to slow down and enjoy the scenery, or get your heart pumping as you let go of the brakes and speed down the hill.

You can choose to include round-trip transportation from the Ocho Rios cruise port – see tour options below.

Please note: this shore excursion cannot accept bookings from Carnival cruise ship passengers

Worry-free Shore Excursion:

We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Ocho Rios for your ship’s departure. In the rare event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. See our terms and conditions for full details.

The tram ride was good except no hood so if it rains you get wet. The swimming pool is very small. The restaurant at the top has a great view and priced reasonably. The Bobsled was fun, i liked it but only one ride for $75? I can go all day at Six Flags Texas for that price! I think for the money it is very over rated. In fact the whole island is over rated. I can get more for my money at Disneyland or Six Flags. I had fun but would not spend the money to do it again.
