Jamaican bobsled ride from Montego Bay
Enjoy an unexpected adventure in a warm, tropical climate
Race through the jungle like the Jamaican bobsled team or enjoy a leisurely ride—you control the speed of your adventure
Either opt to be picked up at your hotel or make your way to the departure point for this private adventure. On the way to Ocho Rios, pass through the historic town of Falmouth, home to many Georgian-style houses. On the way, listen to your guide as he details the travails of the 1988 Jamaican Olympic bobsledding team, the inspiration for the 1993 movie 'Cool Runnings.'
Arrive at the eco-park for your first look at the bobsledding track, which starts at Dunn's River Falls and winds through 3,200 feet (975 meters) of the rainforest. Get some instruction from your guide about how to easily operate the bobsled and its speed.
Hop into your seat and take off. View the local flora and fauna that surround this attraction, which was built with minimal impact on the jungle environment in mind. Speed up or slow down at your whim, pausing to take a look at any wildlife or interesting plants you may pass.
At the end of your adventure aboard the real-life version of 'Cool Runnings,' enjoy drop-off at your hotel in Montego Bay, Negril, Ocho Rios, or Runaway Bay (if option selected.)

There was soooooo much fun and professionalism. I simply enjoyed. My next trip is to England this year, I will certainly book with you guys. Thanks.
It was a ok tour. They bob sliding is only less then 5 mins long. However, when you sign up for this tour it not 3 hours its 6 hours because when they take you to bob sled, you have to go to dun rivers tour as well. They will not go and drop you, back until everyone has completed their tours even though you may have signed up for only the Bob sledding.
The bobsledding itself and Mystic Mountain were great. It was so much fun! However, be aware that's is particular tour is not three hours as noted in the description. Because they throw you on the same bus as people doing other longer tours, you will spend several hours sitting around. We left at 9am and got back after 8pm, which was very frustrating especially when we anticipated being back around noon. Mystic Mountain has a restaurant with good guava margaritas, infinity pool and a great display, which help pass the time, but you might be better booking an different excursion with a few different activities added in. Follow me on bylandandsea.me.
How can you go to Jamaica and not go on the Bobsled!!! This was a fabulous tour. You can buy additional runs once you get there as one may not be enough!. Might want to check to see how long you'll be on the bus from your resort as it maybe 5+ hours travelling total depending on the amount of stops to pick up people from different hotels.
If you're a big fan of Cool Runnings then you must ride the bobsled! However, there's not much to do at the top of the mountain besides have lunch. There is a small infinity pool and waterslide upstairs. We ended up adding on the Dunn's River Falls tour to this after the fact because if we didn't we had to wait for the rest of our tour group for 2-3 hours. Our tour guide Torrianne was awesome, very informative and had a great sense of humor.
