Downhill Karting

Gravity Fueled Fun! 

Looking for Calgary attractions with a unique twist? Downhill Karting by Skyline Luge Calgary is a fun, fast-paced family activity that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy.

Skyline's Downhill Karting experience is a unique wheeled gravity ride that provides riders full control over their descent on purpose-built track. 

With more than 50 twists and turns and covering a distance of over 1800 metres on a continuous downhill trajectory, you'll soon realise why once is never enough! 

Climb aboard your Luge cart and let gravity and your sense of adventure do the rest!

  • What clothing and shoes should I wear?

    We recommend you wear comfortable clothing and covered toe shoes.

  • Are there height/ weight limits to ride the Chairlift and Downhill Kart?

    Downhill Karting:

    Children must be at least 6 years of age and over 110cm tall to be eligible to ride alone.

    Children under 6 years of age and between 85cm and 110cm tall can ride the kart in tandem (Peewees), with an adult aged 20+ years and from their own bubble/cohort.


    You must be over 85cm to ride the Chairlift, be able to walk unassisted and be able to follow instruction from staff.

    However, guests need to be aware of and comply with the 'Alpine Responsibility Code - Clause 10' when boarding the chairlift: “You must have sufficient physical dexterity, ability and knowledge to safely load, ride and unload lifts. If in doubt, ask the lift attendant.”

    There are no weight restrictions on either the Chairlift or the Kart. 

  • Is it possible to make bookings for large groups or team building events?

    For large groups or team building event bookings (20 or more) please contact us and we will get back to you as soon as possible with what is possible in the current Covid 19 environment.

  • Can I buy a gift voucher for this experience?

    Yes, gift cards can be purchased here.

    Please note: Due to the current Covid 19 environment, the person receiving the gift card will also need to book a specific session time on a specific day.

  • How long should I spend here?

    We encourage guest to arrive in the first 30mins of your chosen session time. Please leave enough time to complete your rides before the end of your allocated time slot. For all 6pm – 7pm bookings, we ask that guests arrive at 6pm or before to ensure they have enough time to finish their rides before closing.

    1 lap of the course (including downhill ride & chairlift) takes approximately 20 minutes. This time will vary during peak hours and guests will need to prepare for some queuing when it comes to loading the chairlift and getting instructions.

    Please note we are an outdoor activity and there is no shade at our top terminal, so please ensure you prepare accordingly for the weather of the day you are riding.

    For a half-day visit, we recommend also trying Mini Golf which is available at WinSport this summer - find out more.
