The Mystic Mountain Bobsled Experience

Have you tried bobsledding? At the famous Mystic Mountain which is located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, you can try to experience having a ride on the bobsled in the middle of the rain forest! This attraction is inspired by the famous Jamaica National Bobsled Team which participated multiple times in the Winter Olympic Games.

Originally, bobsleigh is a winter sport in which teams of two or four make timed runs down narrow, twisting, banked, iced tracks in a gravity-powered sled. The timed runs are combined to calculate the final score. The Jamaican national bobsleigh team represents Jamaica in international bobsledding competitions. The team first gained fame during their debut in the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, where they were seen as underdogs, representing a tropical nation in a winter sport. The team returned to the Winter Olympics again in 1992, 1994, and subsequent competitions.

Bobsledding in the Rain Forest

Riding on a bobsled is an exhilarating activity, and it is one of the favorite things to do by tourists and locals. Most people will put this activity on top of their lists of things to do in Jamaica, particularly in Ocho Rios.


At Rainforest Adventures, you’ll be safely strapped into a custom-designed, high-tech sled and whooshed down a 1000-meter long track installed into the side of the mountain, completely driven by gravity: yes, Newton, it really works! You have complete control of the speed of your bobsled while you slide through the dense tropical landscape on top of Mystic Mountain. Visitors can purchase tickets for bobsledding, or they can avail it in a package with other activities to do.


They can go bobsledding as well as zip lining on all 7 zip lines averaging 100 meters length each, and riding on a chairlift called the SkyExplorer that takes them soaring 700 feet above the Jamaican rainforest, giving them a chance to explore the treetops above the Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios.
