From the road, it looks fun. I've been tubing in Winter Park, and it was an amazing experience. This however, was closer to a harrowing experience. After the first run, we tried to get out cash back, and were told that they do not give refunds based on "weather." Weather was not the problem. Real estate is. There just is... More

My husband and I had a blast on Christmas day. It was a lot more fun than I thought and I felt like a kid again. I will say there's no way to stop and I hit the wall almost every time, but I didn't feel like it was a painful hit. However, you really have to watch out for... More

We had a good time here after reading all the bad reviews I figured I give it my opinion. We snow tubed in several places. The magic carpet was a short walk. Early morning the runs are slower and safer as the day goes on the runs get faster and they have a small recovery area with airbags. We didn't... More

My husband and I went without the kids and we had a great time. It was like being a kid again. Tons of fun!! However, there were not any signs to keep you from walking into the middle of the landing zone and you will be knocked off your feet if someone flies into you. The attendants at the top... More

Our family of 5 paid $125 to tube for 1.75 hours. We all took one try and declared it too dangerous - even the children. The speed is fast and there isn't any slow down area before abruptly hitting a bean bag wall - at full speed. I felt like a crash test dummy, my husband tweaked his neck, one... More

Book your appointment early!!! We almost waited too late - we were able to snag the 8:00 pm tube time on NY Day! It was a blast! The only negative thing I can say is that the conveyor belt kept having difficulties & stopping; also the assistants at the top were not very attentive. But - all in all -... More

We were there end of December 2014 with our 3 kids and we ALL thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a warm day (high of 50) and so it got a bit slushy and muddy but that didn't stop us or anyone there. Great fun!

Fun to watch or participate! Great way to spend approximately 2 hours for $25 and watch the children scream and play in the tubes on snow. You don't have to walk to the top as they have a moving walkway which gives you more energy to enjoy the downhill ride and more time to spend on the slope. Plenty of... More

Really fun place for the kids. Plenty of parking and we got to slide the mountain many times. The line moved quickly and the guys helping to push you down were very cool and friendly. My kids loved it and we took great memories.

We were a little skeptical that this was worth the price but were pleasantly surprised. The kids had a great time! About half way through our session the line got significantly smaller so if you have older kids they can get a lot of rides in. Our 4 year old only tubed for about 30 minutes before she was ready...
