Their new colourful disco lights will light the way as you twist and turn your way down one of the exciting Luge tracks. Jump into a Luge and race off with friends or family to work out just who is the king of the mountain. The Luge is great for any age, and small children (provided they can walk unassisted) can ride with adults. You can also Zipline or push yourself to ride the 50-meter Sky Swing or do it all with an affordable combo package.
