Great Wall of China alpine coaster

We’ve seen alpine coasters at ski resorts across the globe but did you know you can ride one on the way down after visiting The Great Wall of China? Check out this travel vlog from Attraction Source, a YouTube channel dedicated to fans of theme parks and attractions in the UK and beyond, and discover more about the chairlift and gondola options to access 1 mile long Mutianyu Toboggan:

Tips for Mutianyu Toboggan

1. The enclosed cable car and toboggan are not operated by the same company, so if you ascend Mutianyu Great Wall with an enclosed cable car and descend by toboggan, you need to buy two one-way tickets at 200RMB totally. If you get up by chair Lift and get down by toboggan, you just need a round-way ticket which cost 120RMB.

2. A kid under the age of 10 has to be accompanied by a parent and the double toboggan is available for one kid and one adult; people older than 60, pregnants, patients with some special disasters (like high blood pressure, heart disease, lumbar spondylosis, etc.) are not permitted to ride a toboggan.

3. In the rainy or snowy days, the speed slide will be closed. If it rains on your ridding, please stop moving and evacuate under the guidance of the staff.

4. For your safety, it’s not permitted to stop, take photos, use cellphones and drop off the toboggan for nothing.

5. Since the toboggan is less chosen by travelers than cable cars, you don’t need to queue usually. But in the peak season, especially Chinese holidays like May Day, Qingming Festival and National Day, you may need to about 0.5~1 hour to wait.
