[Ocho Rios] Rainforest Bobsled Jamaica at Mystic Mountain
Date: March 2014
Apparently one of the most popular things to do in Jamaica is the Bobsled at Mystic Mountain. A description of what it is can be found on this tourist website:
The most thrilling part of the visit, however, starts at the Railway Station, a picturesque replica of an early 1900s Jamaican railway station. Here, daredevils can climb into a custom designed Jamaican bobsled and try their hands at the tropical version of the Olympic sport of bobsledding. The track features a gravity-driven plunge of 3,280 feet with twists and turns. You control the speed of your descent with an in-sled handbrake, allowing for either a leisurely ride or a pulse quickening dive to the bottom (speeds up to 40 miles per hour). Once you come to a controlled stop, you and the bobsled are slowly raised back to the Railway Station through the forest on an elevated tramway, where you can opt to bobsled again, traverse the rainforest on the zip line adventure, visit the gift shop or glide down the water slide into the blue waters of an infinity pool which features breathtaking views.
