This is our ride in the famous Tobogan ride in Funchal while on the Transatlantic cruise on Carnival Freedom.

Is it just me, or, does this rickety chair, and the idea of flying down the street scare anyone else?

I'm telling you, Ray and Helen are my heroes!

You two certainly are young at heart!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but here in Canada, the word "toboggan" usually means sliding down a SNOW covered hill. You guys were sure brave doing it on bare pavement!!

Thanks Kat for showing this film. Our slide as cut way short of what the video showed. They said there was too many accidents down further where the traffic was coming along. Anyhow we enjoyed the ride and would go again anytime.
