A luge run is coming to Camp Fortune, and the chair of the National Capital Commission says it will make the capital “a funner place.”

The luge will run back and forth between the Clifford and Marshall ski runs at Fortune. The NCC approved the plan at its meeting Thursday.

Riders will sit on a cart that runs on a single aluminum rail which is 30 centimetres above the ground. It is equipped with brakes.
