What a thrill for 8€ Buy your tickets in the box office before you go in the Gondola to the top. There is a genuine sensation of speed with G Thrown in for good measure.

A good, fun thing to do for all ages!! Fabulous views over the resort. Wrap up as its cold coming down and try to go early on in the day as gets very busy once ski lifts close!

The Monty Express is essentially a monorail bound, single seater bobsleigh. It is 1400m long and lots of fun. The ride is gravity driven and user controlled by means of a stick with you pull back to brake and push forward to accelerate. Although the ride only lasts about 3 minutes (depending on how often you brake) it leaves you... More

We had a go on this on a sunny January afternoon, well wrapped up in ski gear. You pay at the base of the gondola and get a discount if you have a 6 day ski pass - discount from around 8 Euro to a slightly more affordable 5 Euro 20. Take the gondola up and hop into your individual... More

A bit of fun, but nothing special and not a big thrill. You get to sit over a spindly track which sometimes tips the wrong way albeit very safe. Just about worth it I suppose.

What a laugh!! And a perfect end to a good day's skiing. Another opportunity for a little competition - who can get down without breaking!

Great laugh but wouldn't pay the full price- we got discount as we had ski passes. Just over 5 euros

Worth a go, and not too expensive , especially if you go on the cheaper Tuesday or Thursday. You can control the speed with a joy stick (forward fast, backwards slow), but in reality you never need to break as it goes fast but not that fast. In fact it feels like there is some built in braking around some... More

A fun way to finish a ski day. Get there by 3pm as the queue builds up. The luge-cars are pretty much self-braking so unless you're of a nervous disposition let it go

Our kids LOVED this. In summer, aim to go earlier in the mornings as the queue can be up to 30 mins at the top.
