It is a park located in Ocho Rios, Jamaica and also a popular tourist destination. There are a few  wonderful rides that take you to the mountain with an incredible view. Sky Explorer, Anancy’s Web RopeCouse, Zipline, Raggamuffin, and Bobsled are just a few of the exciting activities available. There is an additional service available like lunch, lockers and transportation. Make enough time to visit Mystic Mountain so that you can enjoy all of the rides without feeling rushed. There may also be a queue for rides, therefore I recommend choosing a ride with a shorter line in order to enjoy all of the rides. It is costly, but it is worthwhile. Some rides have prerequisites, so check the website before booking your ride.

Price:

  • Starting $129 per person for Bobsled and Raggamuffin 
  • Starting $49 per person Sky Explorer And Anancy’s Web
  • Starting $169 per person Mystic Mountain All In
