Description

The "Swirly Whirly Green Goat" track, otherwise known as SWIGG, is a sensuously sweet flowing descent. It has high-bermed corners, a steep wooden ramp, and interesting little wriggles and bumps.

SWIGG, in association with Starfish, is one of the main routes back to the main car park. Consequently it is a very popular track, as is the adjacent easier option of Lazy Fern.

Strictly speaking Big Tom's Wheelie is part of SWIGG, though they are usually treated as separate tracks.

Big Tom's Wheelie (0:00-0:30) / Swigg (0:31-2:05) / Starfish (2:06-end)

Big Tom's Wheelie (0:00-0:46) / Swigg (0:47-2:13) / Starfish (2:14-end)

Getting there

Starts on Tower 19 Connector at the nexus of several tracks, including Koru, Big Tom's Wheelie, and Lazy Fern.

Ends on Comms Connector, next to the communications tower and directly opposite the start of Starfish.
