You're never too old to go tobogganing. Gliding down a hill on a wooden sled is the perfect way to enjoy the snowy weather outdoors. But if you are looking for the ultimate experience, you need to try this insane toboggan slide in Canada.

In Quebec City, there is a century-old slide you need to add to your winter bucket list. You'll find Au 1884 next to the iconic Chateau Frontenac, one of Canada's stunning castles.

Here you can experience a thrilling toboggan ride, unlike anything you've done before. It is a hidden gem that is surprisingly unknown, but worth the trip to Quebec City.

At Au 1884, you'll race down the hill at an incredible speed of up to 70 kilometres per hour. While zooming down, you'll get to enjoy one of the best views of Chateau Frontenac. 

Together with your friends, you can all ride together in one toboggan (they fit up to four passengers). Or, you can challenge them to see who gets down first, as there are three runs next to each other.

Super fun and a great view β€” what could make this any better? Well, this exhilarating experience is super cheap, too.

You can try it for yourself for just $3.00. Or you can purchase a combo ticket for the slide and a mug of hot chocolate to warm you up for $7.00.

One money-saving tip is if you want to go down with your friends, you should buy a package ticket. For $10.00, you get four tickets that you can split among your group.

The ride is open from mid-December until mid-March, but the exact dates depend on the weather. This year, it should be opening soon.

For the precise opening date, you'll need to check the Au 1884 website for updates. This winter, it will be open every day between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., weather permitting.
