Weave, dart and speed through the trees at up to 25mph!
The Fforest Coaster is based on the traditional toboggan but runs on rails, which offers an all year, all-weather experience. Start your journey in the heart of the woodland, taking your sledge on your own or in pairs, and travel on the uplift through the trees. You will then fly through the forest at exhilarating speeds up to 25mph!

Please be aware that during busy times (especially weekends and school holidays) your first of three runs may take up to 30 minutes to start after the time of the session you have booked. All three of your runs may take up to 90 minutes to complete. During off peak times please give 30-60 minutes to complete your three runs.
