Speed down a slope

Challenge girls to stay upright as they toboggan down a grass slope, picking up speed all the way!


Experience all the fun of tobogganing, but on a grass slope and with wheels instead of runners.

To go grass sledging, you will need to find a reputable local provider to run the activity, or provide you with grass sledges and safety guidance so you can run the activity yourself.
