“A great mornings activity but not cheap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Took the grandson for a morning of fun consisting of hurtling down the ski slope in a rubber ring followed by many goes on the toboggan run. Best to bulk buy the toboggan tickets because one go just isn't enough. Centre starting to look scruffy in places and could do with a bit of TLC. Not a cheap mornings "fun" but it's not the kind of thing you do every day of the week
