If you are craving adventure on a lush mountain top away from the beaches head on over to Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios Jamaica. Only about five minutes from Dunn River Falls is a large mountain covered in dense trees and bushes.
Here you can explore Jamaica's unique eco-system, walk among the forest along sparkling rivers and take in magnificent views of Jamaica's northern white-sand coast.
But if you or the family want a little more adventure, Mystic Mountain has a host of unique opportunities for thrills designed for age.
First up is the SkyExplorer, a chair lift that takes you 700 ft to the top of the mountain among trees and even over the tree canopy. The views on the chairlift are spectacular. Descending on the chair lift goes down into the rain forest providing a totally different perspective.
Next is Bobsled Jamaica: The park’s signature attraction. Rainforest Bobsled Jamaica, features a 1000m long gravity-drive through the rainforest on custom designed, high-tech sleds. Accessible via the SkyExplorer, the Bobsled is a thrilling ride through dense tropical landscapes and coastal features on sleds that evoke Jamaica’s Olympic team.
Ziplining is another popular activity on Mystic Mountain. Zip-line. The secure Zip Line attraction whisks travelers through the verdant rainforest canopy, gliding from one platform to another. This is a very fun activity with awesome guides with safety and humour in mind.
Reggae Rock Climbing wall is also available to test your climbing skills.
The newest addition to the park, however, is the RaggaMuffin ride, a smooth coaster that lets you dangle on top of the mountain and soar like a bird.
And most recently added are eco-friendly ATV tours on site. The ATVs are fully electric and are totally silent, allowing for a more enjoyable experience.
If the heat of the day is wearing on you, the mountain provides a cooler environment. However, you can also dive into the mountain top pool and take a ride on the waterslide towering above.
Due to Covid19 that park was closed since mid-March of 2020 and was losing about 3 Million Dollars per day in lost revenue and park maintenance. Further, the park owners invested over 10 million on news rides and attractions. The park is now fully operational and open to the public with increased cleaning procedures. Mystic Mountain will only be allowing a quarter of the park’s capacity or 700 people each day - 350 in the morning and 350 reserved for morning and afternoon sessions so excursion tickets are expected to sell out fast.
For an all inclusive price, the park costs about $60USD. That gets nearly all the activities for each person with unlimited rides on each!
Mystic Mountain is located on Belmont Road Ocho Rios Jamaica. There are many tour operators that will get you to and from Mystic Mountain via small bus or taxi. The costs range considerably depending on who you book with and how far you are from the excursion.
If you have a rental car you can park on site for free. Bring food or dine at the on-site restaurant.
