(Found this is my saved posts, obviously I never hit submit. This is from my third contract, which was on Freedom).
It's a popular movie and the Jamaican's have capitalized on that. You can now go bobsledding in Jamaica. This was the second half of our excursion, after climbing Dunn's River Falls.
We took the sky explorer from the parking lot up to the top of Mystic Mountain. The views were amazing. And many times we were able to touch the tree tops with our feet.
At the top there is a mini museum dedicated to Jamaican bobsledding.
We loaded into a two person bobsled. Which is actually two sleds hooked together. Gigli nominated me to be the driver so she could video the ride. I took the front sled with Gigli in the back car.
We asked a ride worker to take our photo and this is what she got! Great that's the sleds but where are Gigli and I?
And away we go! Not sure why this photo won't stay vertical. Track is 1000 metres long and is driven by gravity.
Apparently you can get speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. Not sure how we did but it felt fast. I didn't use the brakes until the guy on the side of the track told me I had to!
After the bobsledding we had lunch - all served out of bobsled BBQ's and then we took the sky explorer back down to the bus.
