Overview

What is Luge, you ask? Luge is the French word for a sled, but this isn’t just any sled ride. Hang on for the ride of your life! Our Discover Luge program introduces you to the sport of Luge in a fun, controlled environment on wheeled luge sleds. Our professional and Olympian instructors will guide you through the sport and prepare you to take to the track. As you lay feet first on your back, let gravity take its course, and roll on our wheeled luge down our paved track.

This one-stop experience will help you discover the sport of Luge and provide a unique experience on the roller loops at Mt Van Hoevenberg. This complete learn-to-luge experience offers an hour-long lesson from our skilled instructors.

You will be led through a progression of skills and challenges designed to build your ability and confidence. When you are ready, you will take runs on a wheeled luge sled down our paved roller loops on the nordic side of our venue.
