Captain Gravity was born at Skyline Skyrides in Rotorua, NZ. His parents, Admiral Gravity and Mrs. Speedy, brought him up to always be happy, exercise regularly, eat nutritious food, be nice to others, recite the ‘Luge Code of Conduct,’ and, of course, LUGE AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE!
After Captain Gravity finished school (where he was Head Boy, received the highest marks, and started a Luging Club), his parents promptly retired and moved away to the beach in Sentosa Singapore. Gravity now spends his time travelling the world encouraging people from all over the world to experience the Skyline Luge.
One day, while spreading his love of the luge to passers-by, Captain Gravity met his future wife, Mrs. Gravity. They were married in a beautiful ceremony on the Skyline viewing deck in Queenstown and partied the night away with all of their friends and family. After the party, they hopped into Capt. Gravity’s personalised luge cart and rode off to their eight-week honeymoon to Calgary and Mont Tremblant Canada.
