An awesome, adrenaline packed adventure. Some serious skills held by Ryan. Dress warm and make sure your hat is quite fitting as one adventurer lost theirs on our trip due to the wind created by the speeds we were travelling. If you're planning to do further sightseeing once finished, take a change of clothes.

We totally loved this ride with the amazing driver - Donald. Highly recommend this - don't even stop to think about it. Book it! We took the kids - 9 & 11 year old boys who were blown away. Stunning scenery. Thrilling experience - thanks Donald!!!
