This is so much fun! After taking the cable car up to the botanical gardens, we walked less than a city block to the area with the wicker sleds. No waiting at all. We zipped down the two kilometers skidding, and going thru the twisted...More

I dont think the hop on went up to the toboggan ride. We took the cable car(even though my husband hates them) the other option was a taxi.We walked back down but there were taxis around if you wanted a ride back down.
