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.

“Great Experience but too Expensive”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

$238 for 3 hours for 2 adults for what you get is very expensive in my opinion. It was nice, but you could only go on the bobsled once, if you wanted to go again you needed to pay another $40. Gondola ride was beautiful. Pop, water, juice was $5 each. The only nice thing was there was an artist named Dolce F at the top painting, amazing artist, we bought a nice painting. There were 3 dancers and 3 people playing drums that was also nice. For $238 for 3 hours for Zipline, 1 Bobsled ride, Gondola it was way too expensive, should have included juice and lunch for that price and unlimited bobsled ride since nobody was there was there and they still would not let us go again.

Also they have a list of all these athletes at the top but there is no mention of Robert Esmie who was also born in Jamaica and who won the gold medal for the 4 man relay in the 1996 Olympics. They mention Jamaican born Donovan Bailey but there is no mention at all of Jamaican born Robert Esmie.

“Went on a cruise excursion”
Reviewed January 31, 2014

I did this activity along with zip-lining and the infinity pool. The ride was fun but too short. It was a good experience. The people there are helpful and polite. Even got a private tour through the mountains.

My partner and I absolutely loved the bobsled! So fun and thrilling at the same time! We went twice on the bobsled we loved it so much. Very glad we stopped here on our vacation. The ziplining was also really fun and the guys who ran it were hilarious! We laughed the entire time! The views were incredibly beautiful as well! And the chair lift through the jungle was also a great experience.

“Worthy of a review”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

I was honestly expecting this to be a waste of a day in Jamaica. Even though I read the reviews, something was telling me I was going to hate the place.

Boy was I wrong.

OK, so the Zip lines are somewhat uneventful if you've done them before. The tour/dance are kind of a waste of time. The lines for the bobsled can take a bit to dwindle....however...when its your turn to go down the mountain, you'll be pleasantly surprised! The bobsled was sooo much fun and much faster than I expected. Great views and thrilling (albeit a tad too short of a ride).

We also had a quick bite and some beers at the rooftop restaurant which had a stunning view. The food was average and priced moderately for a theme park.
