Enjoy the ride of your life and ‘excite your soul’ on Misty Mountain’s Long Tom Toboggan. Feel the wind in your hair and the thrill in your belly when you wind and whoosh around Mpumalanga’s Long Tom Pass mountains on the Long Tom Toboggan, the longest toboggan run in Africa, with an impressive 1,7 km track.
Simply hop on board your cart and ride the exhilarating twists and turns, taking a deep breath when you reach a speed of 45 kph during your three-minute ride. The Long Tom Toboggan is designed and built on the principles of the tried and tested European model, known as an ‘alpine coaster’ or sommerrodelbahn and every centimeter of it has been checked, double-checked, and checked again to ensure riders’ safety.
Long Tom Scootours® is a sensational, 5-km experience of downhill runs in the mountainous terrain of the Long Tom Pass. Staring at an altitude of 1 765 m, and descending some 250 m on a Monster Mountain® Scooter, you drive along single tracks, through open grasslands, patches of indigenous forest, and vast pine plantations. These non-motorized, Swiss-designed scooters are used on ski slopes in the Alps during the summer when there is no snow.
Both activities are a family-friendly way to experience nature and the surroundings. Pure exhilaration — absolute fun!
After your rides, relax and unwind at Misty Mountain Lodge. Perched 1700 meters above sea level, enjoy a meal on the deck with breath-taking views or book in and stay the night in our beautiful part of the world.
