Owner description: A must on the list of places to explore and activities to enjoy in Jamaica, the eco-friendly Mystic Mountain, 2010 Tourism Excellence award-winner for Ocho Rios attractions, is an unforgettable rainforest adventure for everyone in your family. A trip to Mystic Mountain in Ocho Rios, St Ann, could take you towering as much as 700 feet above the rainforest above the picturesque shoreline, affording you a captivating bird's-eye view of the town, cruise-ship pier and turquoise waters as far away as St Mary. If you prefer, you could choose to zip line among the trees or bobsled down the mountain meandering in-between shrubs and trees.The rainforest tour, which is spread over 100 acres of lush lands and rated among the best experiences to have in Jamaica, provides you with an up-close glimpse and thrilling experience in a Jamaican rainforest near the beach. Plus, it gives you the chance to explore your adventurous side on one of four activities, including the SkyExplorer, the Bobsled Ride, the Canopy Zip Line and the unique Mystic Waterslide.

“So much fun and great views!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

My husband and I spent half a day here. I am not that fond of heights and going on a zip line, but I made it through the chair lift (views were amazing) and the bobsled (self controlled speed was fun!). He did the zip line and loved it. I skipped that part. While he was busy I walked around the gardens and rode the chairlift a few times (that is unlimited the bobsled and zip line are one and dones). The gift shop was very reasonable and there was a restaurant and pool (we did neither of these things). Great day! Not sure if it's great for younger children, probably geared more towards teens and adults.

“Awesome Time-Well Worth It”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We are on our honeymoon and did the Sky Explorer, Bobsled and Zip Line tour. We also checked out the hummingbirds and the gift shop. All around it was outstanding. The Sky Explorer up the mountain is a 15 minute trip that allows you to see the beauty of the area. It is a great chance to get some once in a lifetime pictures. Once at the top, we did the bobsled first. It is like others in the States and was very thrilling. (We ended up paying to do it a second time as well). Lastly, was the zip line tour which consists of lines and a 30 foot vertical drop. It was a first for us and we couldn't have asked for more. And to top it all off, our guides Jermainne and Earl, made it very fun, entertaining as well as gave us some insight into the culture of Jamaica.

I feel this is a must if you are in Ocho Rios and have about 3 hours to kill.

“A Thrill For Us Seniors!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Booked as a shore excursion from our cruise ship. Really enjoyed the experience. The chair lift to the top is nice..lots of birds & butterflies...neat trees (huge bread fruits). At the top is a commercial operation with all the typical souvenirs & some artists selling their hand made crafts. We were greeted by several young ladies dancing to a Jamaican tune. There is a humming bird display that is very interesting...live birds visited the feeding stations. Beautiful orchids grow right on the walls. There is a pool, lockers, and lots of hiking trails. But these two seniors (65 & 61) came for the bob sled experience. It was a blast...the staff were very engaging & helpful...even took our picture using my IPad .....don't even think about breaking....go full speed...just like a single car roller coaster....just tell the staff to let the person in front of you get a nice long head start so you do not have to break. The chairlift back down is as pleasant as the trip up. Will definitely do this again someday.

“Fun but with limitations”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

The chairlift ride to the top is the most scenic I've been on. The bobsled ride really is a blast but being on a group tour we were only allowed one ride. That was a huge bummer because the first time down you don't know what to expect and how to brake or not brake the bobsled for the best ride. It's too expensive to buy more rides. The zip lining was fun and worthwhile. Hummingbird watching was a very neat bonus. All in all a good time. Wish we weren't part of tour group so that we could have more time.
