The Tubing Hill is so scary! We chose this resort versus the other one in Colorado which has tubing lanes because the lanes were longer and have varying degrees of pitch (some slower, some faster lanes).
The problem is - they ice down the lanes so when you go down (even the slow lane) you go very fast and fly up the sides of the lane - going vertical! Scary! (no wonder you have to sign release forms to not sue if you're injured!).
One of the lanes even has a jump in it. When we went down (you can go as a group, holding onto the handles of the other tubes), our tubes spun and I ended up going over the jump backwards! Very scary! Screamed all the way down!
There is a surface lift "magic carpet" to ride up - like an escalator - just stand on it with your tube behind you and you both ride back to the top without having to walk and haul your tube with you.
It's expensive and you pay per hour. Must have reservations though as they sell out for nearly every hour. Guess there are those out there who seek more of a thrill than I was! We wanted a fun afternoon where me and my son could go down the slow lanes and my daughter and husband could go down the fast lanes - but they are ALL fast.
They will even spin your tube (if you want) so you spin fast and fly down the lanes at the same time. I wouldn't let them spin me but on the last time down I allowed them to spin the kids (who were begging to be spun) and they screamed the whole way down - but loved it!!!
There is alway a wait on the top to go down the lanes because they rent 80-90 tubes per session. But the lines went fairly quickly. I think we got to down a total of 5 times in the hour since each time from going up, waiting in line, going down, and riding back up takes 10-15min each time.
It was fun (but I don't want to do it again even though the kids do!) but be prepared for a scary ride down! You are totally out of control on the ice, go vertical, and spin (even if they don't spin you - you still spin around some as you go down). A scary ride!
