Mystic Mountain is one of the top attractions in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
There is so much to do there – from zip lining and bobsledding to bird watching.
As the name suggests, this attraction is located on a mountain so you first have to travel up the mountainside via chair lift.
The view on the trip up the mountain is absolutely beautiful! You get a wonderful view of Ocho Rios.
Your photo is taken on the ride up and offered to you for $12. I suggest bringing your own camera to avoid some of these unnecessary costs.
After the lift up the mountain, you encounter a little museum with facts about the Jamaican bobsled team. You get a little history lesson in this area as they feature other Jamaican Olympians.
Also located in this area is a gift shop, nice restaurant with a full bar, an infinity pool with stunning views, and waterslide for everyone to enjoy.
There is no shortage of things to do at Mystic Mountain. The main attractions are pricey but the equipment used is in tiptop shape and a lot of detail is put into safety.
The guides at Mystic Mountain are all very amusing and will ensure you are safe and have a great time.
Jamaica Bobsled: go bobsledding for approximately 90 seconds by twisting through the mountains. The view on the way up to the bobsled is to die for so although coming down is about 90 seconds, going up is quite relaxing and takes about 15 minutes. This is like being on a rollercoaster but with brakes you can control. To get a true rush, everyone recommends not using the brakes and going full speed!
