Long Tom Toboggan in Thaba Chweu Rural, Mpumalanga
Excite Your Soul
Stop in at Misty Mountain Lodge for a one of a kind adventure! The Long Tom Toboggan opened in March 2016 and is South Africa’s first toboggan ride of its kind. Situated only 24 km from Sabie and only 31 km from Lydenberg this is an ideal fun activity for visitors enjoying the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga.
The Long Tom Toboggan is built on the principles of a European model known as an “alpine coaster” or “sommerroddelbahn”, taking two years to complete, after years of planning. Misty Mountain is set on a breath-taking 280-hectare South African Natural Heritage site and this meant careful and minimal clearing of the land so as not to compromise the environment or the scenery.
This 1.7 km, 3 minute long toboggan ride is fun, novel, exciting and offers something to completely different to the normal natural attractions in the area. After the initial adrenaline rush when you set off and as you begin to appreciate the wind in your hair as you reach speeds of up to 45 km, you will be able to understand what a truly special and unique experience this is!
Visitors to Misty Mountain Lodge for the thrilling ride experience, so thrilling that they usually ride twice, are also most welcome to enjoy a delicious lunch on the deck while you soak up the magnificent views!
