Ski jumpers are rarely more than 10-15 feet above the ground, so it wouldn't be that bad. I'd say the odds of face planting shortly after leaving the ramp are much more likely.

Spent yesterday at the zoo and had a great time - this is the perfect time of year to go. The cooler weather mean you can actually go and see the animals doing "animal stuff" instead of just sleeping.

Group of 3+: $150
Group of 12+: $130

Also, you have to be over 16 and weigh less than 250 pounds.

Second edit---that's the price per person. As much fun as I think it would be, I can't see myself spending 150 bucks for a two minute ride.
It is a little steep but it is a blast. Everyone should try this at least once. You get going pretty fast and at times it is hard to keep your head up because of the force of the turns. I went in the bullet... I can't imagine what it would be like in a sled.

Ah, it's too bad you said family-friendly, as the Taboo Sex Show is in town this weekend. Roundup Centre.

We did this a couple of years ago and I agree it is something everyone should do once. The g-forces were unbelievable. It felt like an elephant was sitting on me. We had an ex-national team member as our driver and we were only a couple of seconds off the course record. I want to do the zip line thingy next.

I know the OP is looking for ideas for what to do around the holidays, but for anybody wanting to do something different with your family this weekend (or next) there is the Christmas Market at Spruce Meadows. Crafts, food, ice carving, etc. Kids can go for free. Could be a good alternative to the taboo sexpo for those of us with more conservative parenting styles lol.

I thought they used your mouth? Or is that under construction as well?

What's wrong with Devonian Garden's? I liked it before it got renovated.
