  • No Helmet, No Ride - helmets must be worn at all times when riding the Luge. Optional knee and elbow pads are available.
  • Pull Back to Stop - To slow yourself or stop the cart pull the handlebars back toward you. DO NOT STOP BY PUSHING HANDLE BARS FORWARD. Keep both hands on the handlebars at all times while riding to ensure ease of steering and braking.
