Recently Hosted my daughters Birthday Party at Cool Runnings. The Kids absolutely love going there. You hardly see the kids because they are so pre-occupied with the rides and parents can relax whilst having a glass of wine. The food is well priced and the portions are very generous.

I was severely injured due to negligence. Rushed off in an ambulance for fear of a broken neck. Spent tens of thousands in medical bills. No insurance or compensation was offered. Completely unsafe for children.

First of all, I am very sorry for the accident that occurred, but need to make it clear that incidents of this nature are scarce. Notwithstanding that I am very surprised about your wrongful accusation. The accident on 11 Jan 2017 did not happen because of negligence on our side. In our daily meeting in which we discussed this incident,... More

We went on the track for 6 rides (3 each) on the 12th of March in the afternoon. It was very nice that the track was quit empty so we didnt have to queue. We had lots of fun but the fun was coming far to fast to an end! But we enjoyed it a lot. But I must say,... More

Dear alvo15, Thank you for your review which is not quite correct. We have got a SPECIAL, not only for locals which reduces the rider price to R22.22, instead of the regular price of R40 (children)/ R50 (adults) per person, per ride. Please ask our sales office staff should you have the opportunity to visit us again. Maybe we earn... More

A great fun thing to do for kids. This is a toboggan park, so take the whole family and enjoy the outing. There is a kiosk where you can get burgers and chips etc, as well as a bar.

Cool Runnings is a nice place to visit if you are in the area. The venue was super clean, the staff were efficient and the systems worked well in order to make our visit pleasant. The ride itself was very family friendly which would be safe for children to ride... but if you are a thrill seeker, this is probably... More

We had a party for my son who turned 10. Great facilities and clean. Good food , friendly staff . Exciting times for all his friends , who did not stop for 2 hours. Special tickets for a certain time frame options in our case 2 hours which was ample with unlimited runs. Much better than a limited ride ticket... More

The best alternative to a theme park. Great setup so even if you don't choose to go downhill you can still relax at the restaurant and take photos as your mates slide down.
