Fun for kids

This is a must try if you like speed and fun. The lines are long specially during public holidays. Open all year around even in winter.

So my daughter... terrified of rides says she's not doing it.... after eyeballing the ride for a while she scrapes up the courage and agrees to give it a try! She rode with me, and being able to apply the brake a bit on our own cart the way down ensured she wasnt too scared as we whipped around trees... More

Fun ride. Wasn't expecting it to go as fast as it did. Part of the thrill is wondering if cart was going to detach from rail (but it didn't). They should raise age limit from 3yrs old to at least 6yrs old. Try not to get stuck behind someone who you think may slow down since this will ruin your... More

This really is a thrill. A very slow steady ascent in the luge, never done it that way before and then an incredibly fast descent. Simply brilliant

We've been on this ride a number of times however were disappointed this time. Previously you could go as fast as you wanted but now they have limited the speed. Your sled slows itself down if you go over 40 kph. Still an awesome ride for first timers and kids.

Don't miss this activity if you're at Blue! It's like a roller coaster through the trees. We've done it a few times now, but if you can make it in the fall when the trees change colour, it's even more spectacular (and thrilling)!

$16 for and adult, $13 for kids. 35 minute wait in line. 3 minute tow up the mountain, and less than 5 minutes to go down. Between myself and my wife and our two kids (ages 3 and 5 who rode with either of us), fun but not worth the coin. Par for the course with the rest of the... More

It's quite pricey at $16 adult per ride but it is fun. The line during the week was almost non-existent so that was a plus. The ride up the hill is pretty cool with some nice views and as long as you aren't behind any slow pokes you can rip full blast all the way down the hill.

This was such an awesome ride. Pricey at $13/$16 on its own but we bought an active pass for 8 attractions when you stay on the resort. Workes out to $ 99 with tax but good for any base camp activities. It is super fast.. .almost 6 minutes beginning to end.

Unique in Ontario this mountain coaster is worth a visit despite the very high cost. Tickets are $16 for a single ride! However the ride is very well designed and going up is just as enjoyable as coming back down. The ride speed is surprisingly quick so don't have much time to enjoy the scenery as you rush along the... More
