Or, add a bit of excitement to your day by selecting the optional luge ride. You’ll whiz down the mountain on a three-wheeled cart, which has a unique braking and steering system that makes it fun and easy. There are three luge tracks to choose from, with six entry points: the scenic route with a leisurely 1.2-mile (2-kilometer) ride through a redwood forest; the intermediate track with chicanes, a tunnel and fabulous views over the city and lake; or the advanced track with tight turns, dips and a tunnel for a thrilling, adrenaline-pumping ride. Getting up and down a mountain has never been so much fun!
If you choose the Luge Option, you can ride the luge five times, and a chairlift will take you back to the top of the mountain between rides.

My Viator booking for a family of four was really good value.
We each had the Gondola trip up and back down, plus five luge rides each!
It was huge fun and the great weather was an added bonus.
I would definitely use Viator again.

Good fun and very well organized. Shame the cafe at the top had no wifi though, as it was New Years Day and we wanted to Skype family.
