Interesting facts about the action-packed ride

Up we go – to Adventure Mountain!

You’re already getting tingly with anticipation as you plop down on the toboggan, and then it’s time for action! The ride is 1.5 kilometres long – joyous laughter, fun and adventure included. 

  • total length: 1,523 m 
  • difference in altitude from start to finish: 233 metres 
  • starting point: mountain station on Adventure Mountain 
  • one- or two-person sleds for rent 
  • 16 moments of thrill (or in other words: 16 curves) 
  • closed on rainy days – for safety reasons 

The action-filled run from Wurbauerkogel’s mountain station into the valley has you swooshing through a total of 16 curves. But keep in mind: You’re in control of the brakes. So you’d better slow down one too many times rather than putting yourself (and your companion) in danger. Those who prefer a slower ride down the mountain can take the chairlift back to the valley. And remember: Two are better than one! That’s why, once you’ve made it to the end of the run, you should hop on the chairlift right away and go back up the start – to experience the fun all over again.
