Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: The Frisco Adventure Park is minutes from Frisco's charming Main Street, and in the winter, hosts a lift assisted tubing hill and a beginner ski/ride hill, as well as over 45k of cross-country ski/snowshoe trails and horse drawn sleigh ride dinners. The beginner ski/ride hill located adjacent to the tubing hill offers lessons taught by Copper Mountain instructors in the most laid back and easy going environment possible- a friendly surface lift to get you up the hill, a cozy lodge, free parking right next to the hill and instructors who will help you graduate to the "big mountain" at Copper. But remember- you can tackle this hill without instructors if you choose, and it is perfect for kids and adults alike. The Adventure Park sits on the beautiful Frisco Peninsula and is surrounded by Dillon Reservoir affording unforgettable water and mountain views in every direction. And in the summer, the Frisco Adventure Park boasts great free amenities including miles of mountain biking/hiking/running trails, a bike park, a skate park and a disc golf course. Camping is also available on National Forest Service land on the Peninsula. The Adventure Park Day Lodge offers free bathrooms and a comfortable base camp for activities year-round and hosts special and private events including weddings, family reunions, bike/running races and birthdays.

“Perfect snow playground for children of all ages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2012

After a day a skiing at Breckenridge, we discoverd the Frisco Adventure Park, as our 6 year old granddaughter was arriving soon and was looking forward to playing in the snow. As the snow had all disappeared in our area south of Denver, we were looking everywhere for a place for this little southern girl to be able to play in the snow for her very first time.

We were concerned about high entry fees, so we went into their welcome center. In addition to being able to purchase tickets for the impressive tubing hill with the "escalator" to the top, there were clean restrooms and areas for food. It turns out that, in order for children to have a great time sledding and playing in the snow, there is no fee--the huge sledding hill on the opposite side of the parking lot is great and free. There is even a picnic table for the parent or grandparents who want to watch.

Should the kids or adults want to use the awesome groomed tubing hill, the hourly fee is a bit steep, but includes the tubes and use of the "escalator" for maximum time spent tubing down, not climbing up. It is an awesome experience for kids and teens, and doesn't cost nearly as much as the the very outrageous lift ticket fees necessary for most ski resort tubing hills.

There was plenty of wonderful snow, and they are open until April. A great free place to sled for children!

“Snow tubing on a frigid day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2012

the snow tube lift was wonderful. A little pricy. But they have to make their money.

“Best tubing to date!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

We took a day off from skiing last week and visited the Adventure Park for tubing....it was a blast! 4 or 5 well maintained slides which are various degrees of steepness. The attendants more than willing to give you a good spin too....lot of fun for everyone! The cost was $25/hr. and it was a very busy day so we didn't really get our money's worth but it was fun just the same.

“this placeis a rush”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2012

when you see this place from the hwy, you know its guna be a bunch of fun. i was magnetized to it. you cant imagine the fun you'll have though, until you try it! this is a great place for any age and you really cant get hurt. getting ready to go down the hill theres a rush of excitement. secend, theres the whish...and you feel like youre going faster then a car! the only downside is the price $25 per HOUR! we happened to get a resident pass because i own in breckenridge so its $21.25 per person but i feel thats still sky high. they limit the people and take reservations so one will get at least 6-8 runs. try going during the week or early mornings because even though they limit crowds, it still means a wait on the people mover and at the top before going down. many people like the far south run(has the longest line) but ive done em all and theres not much difference. just go to the shortest line. this is exceptional fun but the lines and price is why im giving it a lower rating.

“lots of fun for the entire family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2012

Had we not received these tickets from the owners of the condo we rented from this year, we would not have thought of checking this place out. We had a blast and all of us, young or older, equally enjoyed it. We will return next year and recommend other friends to check it out. Perfect activity to be spent on a day off,away from the slopes
