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.

Went to the Frisco Adventure Park with family and friends, ages ranging from 8-50 years.
The tubing is safe and lots of fun. Their is also a lounge area with a small canteen that sells very reasonable priced snacks and drinks.
Would do it again.

We spent a few hours here yesterday and it was a lot of fun. You can book online before you arrive to ensure you will get a spot. I'm not sure if they only sell so many spots per hour but it seemed like it.

The website said you could book online or call. I tried booking online but it was very confusing so I just called and she took a credit card and booked it over the phone. They charge $25/hour per person. They take a $10 per person deposit and then you pay the remaining balance when you arrive. They take all major credit cards.

They have a well organized system. You get there and sign some release of liability forms as is typical in all of these big tubing hills. They gave us lift ticket type stickers for our jacket which showed what time it expired and they do check them on the hill.

All the tubes are the same size. We were a bit worried at first that there would be long lines at the top as there were lots of people on the magic carpet going up the hill but were pleasantly surprised to see 4 lines on top of the hill with employees in each lane so there were no lines at all. It was quick.

Someone else mentioned that they don't have an area for toddlers but the nice thing here as opposed to other mountains that we've gone tubing with the kids is they allow you to hang on to the tubes so multiple tubes can go down at the same time. We've been to several in Lake Tahoe where it's only one person per tube and no hanging on to other tubes.

Here they allowed all 4 of us (my wife and I and we have a 3 and 4 year old) to go down together. Our kids have gone tubing before so they weren't scared and also went alone. These hills aren't too fast compared to some. It's just a straight shot although the guys at the top ask if you want to go down straight or want to spin.

The staff was very friendly. It can add up if you have several kids and go several hours. Normally it's $25/hour and the 2nd hour is $10 but yesterday was a peak holiday period so it was $25/hour per person. So a family of 4 is $100/hour which adds up.

They have a little cafe area next door to the ticket office where you can buy drinks and snacks and plenty of seats to rest. They also have restrooms and drinking fountains here. They also have locker storage here where you can lock up your stuff.

It was super windy yesterday so it wasn't ideal as snow blows into your face while you are going down so best if it's not too windy but it's a lot of fun, especially if you have young kids. We will come back during the week.

Highly recommended if you have young kids. As mentioned, you can go down at the same time. Each person MUST stay in their own tube but at least you can connect yours so you can go down at the same time if your toddler is scared.

It is what it is.

Nice tube hills. About as good as copper mountain. But nothing for toddlers. You pay by the hour. When your hour is up, the prices skyrocket for all other activities.

So, in all.......the price isn't horrible, but we prefer copper mountain despite the price if only because of the toddler area.

We attended a fundraiser for the Summit County Chamber at the Frisco Adventure Park. Included were tubing, chili, hot chocolate, and a sleigh ride to the Two Below Zero dinner tent. The tubing was fun and exciting, and gave our non-skier some serious downhill thrills. The clubhouse is inviting, with a large fireplace and seating for after tubing/cross country skiing relaxation. The sleigh ride was the highlight of the evening, where we bundled up, rode up to the dinner tent, and were treated to peppermint schnapps and cocoa while David Peel delighted us with his singing and guitar playing. It was the best evening of our two week visit to ski the Summit.
