Jamaican Bobsledding and Mystic Mountain Tour
In that true vacation spirit, what could be more memorable than your very own jaunt down 3,280 ft. of twisting stainless steel track in your modified Jamaican Bobsled. In honor of Jamaica's Olympic bobsledding, Mystic Mountain developed this environmentally friendly ride, and (by the way) you can govern your speed as you descend so you can spy all the natural beauty surrounding you. Most excursions include ascending Dunns River Falls, a chairlift lift ride to your sled, a tram lift after you sled, and a chance to swim in the incredible infinity pool.
Price: Adults expect to pay from $99 to $126
Booking Advice: This activity, with the climbing and walking, is considered difficult so there are age and physical restrictions. Third party vendors provide some nove deals and excursion variety.
Negril Beach Excursion
