FUN BOB in Valsesia Piédmont
The Fun Bob of the Alpe Campo di Rimasco is one of the most popular and popular tourist activities in all of Valsesia; the plant was inaugurated in 2014 and is appreciated by people of all ages and nationalities. The breathtaking curves and the surrounding nature are the two elements that make this tourist activity truly unique!
What is the Fun Bob:
The Fun bob is a sled placed on an aluminum monorail that stretches for 1 km, with a difference in altitude of 250 meters in the woods of our territory. The sledges are single-seater, equipped with a safety belt and brakes that do not allow the user to exceed 40 km / h. The operation is very simple since the user only has to push the lever located at the center of the Fun bob to allow him to move forward along the rail, the more pressure is exerted on the lever the more the speed increases.
To be able to use the bob it is necessary to be at least 125 cm tall or to be 8 years of age, below this threshold each child must be accompanied by an adult, the same rule is applied to the chair lift.
The station of departure of the lift can be reached in just 7 minutes by using the two-seater chairlift "Rimasco - pian della Ratta" in operation since 1984, first used to reach the Alpe Campo ski resort, now closed since 2011, and recovered with the reopening in 2014 of the Fun Bob plant. The departure of the chairlift is in front of the parking lot of the Cà Abate locality, about 1 km from the center of the village of Rimasco (906 meters) on the road to Carcoforo; alternatively it is possible to walk up the mule track (CAI path n.370) departing from Sponda Lago, near the “Il Laghetto” restaurant and can be covered in about 35 minutes.
Next to the start of the Fun Bob stands the Alpe Campo Refuge, also built in the 80s to serve the ski resort and totally renovated in the years 2013-2014. Outside the refuge there is a large green area which is partly equipped with tables and umbrellas to enjoy a little relaxation. Deckchairs are available on the panoramic balcony for tanning with a breathtaking view!
