Owner description: A must on the list of places to explore and activities to enjoy in Jamaica, the eco-friendly Mystic Mountain, 2010 Tourism Excellence award-winner for Ocho Rios attractions, is an unforgettable rainforest adventure for everyone in your family. A trip to Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios, St Ann, could take you towering as much as 700 feet above the rainforest above the picturesque shoreline, affording you a captivating bird's-eye view of the town, cruise-ship pier and turquoise waters as far away as St Mary. If you prefer, you could choose to zip line among the trees or bobsled down the mountain meandering in-between shrubs and trees.The rainforest tour, which is spread over 100 acres of lush lands and rated among the best experiences to have in Jamaica, provides you with an up-close glimpse and thrilling experience in a Jamaican rainforest near the beach. Plus, it gives you the chance to explore your adventurous side on one of four activities, including the SkyExplorer, the Bobsled Ride, the Canopy Zip Line and the unique Mystic Waterslide.

“very expensive for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

We did the bobsled, zip line, and sky ride. The bobsled was a lot of fun, but the ride doesn't last very long. Same can be said for the zip line. The ride to the top on the chair lift was pleasant and the view was great! But all in all if I had know what the return for our money was going to be we probably would have passed.

“Bobsled Ride”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

The DVD and Photos are very overpriced. Out of the section taken by the photographer only a small selection actual showed us. There were several photos the same but in four different frames as we moved along. July 2013 Again very overpriced by Travel Company. Good attraction better to be organised independently. Bobsled ride was great but short.

“Bobsledding is a must!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

At Mystic Mountain, my favorite attraction was the bobsledding. It was about a 2-3 minute ride, and a about a 3 minute slow ride back up the mountain. The speed is very fast, but it's just so fun and great. No drops, just very sharp turns. There is a camera that takes a picture at one point, and pictures are available to buy for $12 each.

Bobsledding was incredible! Best attraction at Mystic Mountain!

“Fun fun fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

After being here last year we were back for more fun. This time we did the Tranopy tour (US$135 per person walk up price, yep this doesn't come cheap!), which includes the chair lift, one bobsled ride and the zip line experience.

But we sure had fun! The guides make the zipline experience a fun one, somehow managing to work fast but still safe to lead a large group through. At one point you go straight down for 15 feet, scary! But we had a blast.

The bobsled is like a rollercoaster but one that you can do as fast or slow as you want yourself. Too sad though that the ride down is shorter than the haul back up.

The hill station at the end of the chair lift ride has a nice swimming pool with water slide, and a little museum with all Jamaican sports heroes. And the view over Ocho Rios is great. There is also a butterfly and a hummingbird garden. This is a fun place to spend half a day outside of your resort, especially with your significant other.

Two tips:
- Bobsleds can be linked, and you go faster if you have bobsleds hooked up!
- If you do bobsledding and zip lining, do the bobsledding first and ziplining last, otherwise you have to ride the chair lift down and then back up again to the top, which takes a lot of time.
