It was quite a fun ride, although some of the drops are quite steep. I don't like rollercoasters or those sort of rides but I found this just about bearable! The kids really enjoyed it. The queue can get quite long at busy times.

Great fun but a bit tame easy to get to by taking the gondola long and enjoyable. Dont break if you want a thrill

Very long, and good value. Kids will love it, but not quick enough to be a real thrill for an adult.

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
