Game rules and gameplay LIGHT RIDE

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.

Gameplay
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.

1 START
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».

2 PUNCH
Clap hands to high-five and win seconds!

3 MILKY WAY
The «Light Riders» ride through a light and sound installation.

4 BONUS POINTS
Catch the bonus points and skilfully avoid the minus points. All icons that the «Light Rider» drives over are credited.                          

5 SPEED CHECK
This is where the top speed is called for! The speed reached is deducted from the «Light Riders» total time in seconds.  

6 U-TURN
The light installation in the hairpin bend shows the «Light Riders» the way.

7 LIGHT TUNNEL
The «Light Riders» ride through the legendary light tunnel, a fascinating art installation with a driving sound.

8 FINISH
Done! The «Light Riders» cross the finish line in the final sprint and release a fanfare. Please smile, you are being photographed!

VALLEY STATION ROTHORN
The results of each «Light Rider» will be evaluated and published on the monitor at the valley station. In addition, each registered «Light Rider» will receive an evaluation with the detailed results and a link to their finish photo by e-mail.

«Light Riders» who have registered with a group will receive the results and the photo links to the group e-mail address they provided when registering.

To be prepared for the sledding experience, you will receive some tips and tricks.

  • To make sure you can still see through the dark passages, it's best to wear transparent glasses or a headlamp.

We recommend participation with a stable sled. Plastic bobsleds are permitted but not recommended. No liability can be accepted for damage to sledges and bobsleds.

As many times as you like. The LIGHT RIDE ticket is valid continuously from 18.00 to 22.00. 3 to 4 rides should be possible.
