In the rainforest of Ocho Rios, Jamaica, five minutes from Dunn’s River Falls, Mystic Mountain Park has a gravity-driven bobsled that slides down 3,200 feet on stainless-steel rails from a 700-foot peak.

Visitors can take a chair lift to the top and enjoy a tree-to-tree zip-line ride, then head back down by chair lift or bobsled. Calmer options include jungle walking trails, a restaurant, a bar and an infinity pool with water slide.

Including park entry, package options are chair lift up and down ($42); chair lift and bobsled ($62), or chair lift, zip-line and bobsled ($125). 7:30 a.m.-5 p.m. daily. Rain Forest Trams (Miami, FL; 866/759-8726).
