Our son has moved to Cape Town and we all decided that after all the unpacking and settling into flat, we needed a break. We went to Cool Runnings. This was our second time but it is still as exciting as the first. If your love speed you will enjoy this. The carts whizz around the bends so fast. You... More

Went with my friend and her 2 sons for the day. We and the children have a blast time. All the staff were helpfull and supportive. The children also have so much fun that we have to go the next day again for rides. The bar and upstairs facilities also make the day cozy and fun. Cool runnings really are... More

Great family outing for all. Good, friendly staff all round made the tobogganing experience even more memorable. Nice little tuck shop with warm, sweet and savoury snacks next to the tracks. Nice bar facility upstairs too. Keep it up Cool Runnings. Looking forward to our next visit.

Fun and affordable activity to do with the kids! Went with my husband and our 3 and 6 year old kids and all they wanted was to do it again and again and again!!! Also liked the fact that they don't force you to use up all the rides you've bought in one day, so you can come back whenever... More

Our 9 year old son had his party at cool runnings and we brought our other two sons one of whom is disabled. Everyone had an awesome day and our boys and all the friends can't stop talking about it and asking to go again. Thank you for an amazing day that we will be booking again soon.

Cool runnings is in tyger valley about 20 min from the cbd. The toboggans are very well maintained and they have support staff every few metres. Once you start, you don't want to stop!

What a great day out with my 4 year old. This is really what you call bonding time with your kids. Something for the adrenaline junkies and for the lady drivers lol. Will be back shortly. Erasmus & Mattiah

This venue was so much fun!! My entire family, including my 15 year old son, 9 year old daughter my husband and myself had a blast. The toboggan gets pulled up to the top of the rude on a type of conveyor system, at the top you enter into a steel tube and can slow down when necessary. Very easy... More
