Sky Explorer & Schooner Ride

Marigot, Saint-Martin, Saint Martin Island (French)

General information


Experience two of the most thrilling attractions of Rainforest Adventures Park: Soualiga Sky Explorer and Schooner Ride!     

Discover why this gorgeous island is also known as “The Friendly Island” by visiting a restored plantation house, built in the 1700s. The museum tells the powerful story of Trace Wilson, who was born into slavery on the property in 1818, and her direct descendant Emilio Wilson. Here you’ll see depictions of what life was like on a plantation and you’ll get to know about the customs, traditions, lifestyle, and stories of St. Maarten. 

Minutes later will be time to enjoy this destination’s landscapes from above on the fabulous Soualiga Sky Explorer! This 25-minutes cable car ride will take you to the top of Sentry Hill, one of St. Maarten’s highest elevations at 1,125 feet. The experience encompasses two chairlifts and a series of platforms encircle the mountaintop showcasing 360-degree views of the island, including vistas of neighboring islands Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barts and Anguilla.

To complete your top-to-bottom ride, the Soualiga Sky Explorer will take you to the Schooner Ride where you’ll surf down the mountain in an inner tube! Glide down through the curves and straightaways of a specially designed track. Let the adrenaline flow!   

After your fun-filled adventure, souvenirs and your photos taken in he attractions are available for purchase in the gift shop; as well as the classic dishes of Emilio’s Restaurant, nestled among authentic antique colonial walls.
