Where do you start?
Ride the gondolas to the Scharmoin middle station and test your riding skills on the first part until you reach the start of the LIGHT RIDE.
The aim of the LIGHT RIDE is to ride the lowest overall time. Along the way, the «Light Riders» must try to collect as many time credits as possible at various stations. But be careful, there are also time bonuses lurking around!
The winner is the «Light Rider» with the lowest time in the overall evaluation, considering the time credits.
The «Light Riders» will be called acoustically to take up their starting positions. Four riders can start at a time. As soon as the countdown light turns from red to green, the start is made and the timing begins individually for each «Light Rider».
Clap hands to high-five and win seconds!
