Frequently Asked Questions
HOW MANY RIDERS?
The bobsleighs are two-man sleighs on both courses, but you may also ride alone. The summer bobsleighs are not equipped with safety belts, meaning that you need to pay special attention to keeping your balance and we recommend a slower speed. ATTENTION! Break before bends!
Would they be recommended for children?
Yes. Children under 2 are not allowed on the bobsleighs. Children under 8 may only ride in the company of an adult or child over 10.
ARE TICKETS ISSUED PER PERSON OR PER BOBLSLEIGH?
Tickets required for using the course must be purchased per person, meaning that you need to buy two tickets for a two-man bobsleigh. There are also passes valid for six or welve rides. Passes may be shared, meaning that two people have three rides each in the case of a six-ride pass, depending on whether you ride alone or together.
DO YOU NEED TO BOOK?
There is no need to book in advance. Anyone keen on bobsleigh riding is welcome to visit during opening hours. The course is closed in bad weather. We are also open for roups outside regular opening hours, but bookings need to be made in advance.
