I went on this









The Guys went on four times each except one chap who'd had enough at three so I took his go. This shot is part of the down bit taken from the ride up. It was great fun and they were disappointed that I didn't arrive at the bottom a shivering, screaming wreck :-)
Clicking the track photo should open a bigger version.

I would never go on that! What did you sit on - a tea-tray?

Look at the top photo Mornev, the one with Calum - it's like a plastic tea-tray with wheels and a central joystick which actuates the brakes. The most uncomfortable part is the ride to the top before you whiz down. It bends you double as your feet are above your head but once you get off that bit it's great fun indeedy.

Hi Nog!
I've been on a toboggan run like that too! In fact I had two goes I thought it was so cool! Mind you it was a few years ago now, at Swadlingcote Ski Centre! Looks like you had fun :-)

Feet above head?

Nogbad said...

Imagine sitting on a teat tray and then being dragged upstairs on it Mornev - you'd find yourself bending forward from the waist with your legs straight and that's a tad uncomfortable in this context.

And a teat tray really puts me off trying it Nog! ;-)))

Nogbad said...

Oh I don't know - I think that it's difficult to judge a teat tray until you've tried it! ;-)
