Need for speed: Race through twists and turns at wild Calgary attraction (VIDEO)

May 24 2023, 5:01 pm

An absolute must-try attraction is back for another year in Calgary with Downhill karting returning to Winsport.

Downhill karting by Skyline Luge made its return over the long weekend and it was busy as always. And how could it not be?

Downhill karting allows visitors to ride their way down 1,800 metres of track and maneuver their way through 50 twists and turns all while you are flying downhill, descending over 100 m.

They say all you have to do is “Hop in the driver’s seat and let gravity do the rest.”

It is a wild ride that is safe and fun for the whole family.
