I have been here once. About 2 or 3 times down the hill is really all you need. It is fun for the first time or two but after you realize you are doing the same thing over and over again, it gets a little mundane.

Short but fun ride. How many times you get to go down depends on how many people are there. You have your own lane and you can race the other lanes. They have snow making machines for when mother nature doesn't cooperate

We had family visit from Fl and they wanted their kids to see snow. Tube World was a great place to go. They had fun going down the runs and playing in the snow. However this is the last weekend that they will be open. They are closing for the season and will reopen next winter.

We traveled to Tube World as part of a group to enjoy some snow tubing. The people that worked there were friendly. There were so many people tubing that we were only able to tube 4 times during our time slot due to the extremely long line that snaked back and forth. The kids had a blast when we were... More

We visited this incredible place. Kids had so much fun, we did as well. A lot of fun, especially to beginners who want to have fun in the snow before skiing. Kids couldn't stop going up and down the hill.

Our family of 3 went to Tube World on a very busy Sunday morning. The staff was very efficient and keep things moving to ensure you get quite a few rides in during your 1 hour 45 minute window. One negative I experienced (which others did not seem to mind) is that your tube continues to go really, really fast... More

I went on a Friday before President's weekend with my 9 year old. We started to buy the tickets online but didn't because we weren't 100% sure we would be there at that time and other reviews say that refunds are NOT happening. There are some improvements they can make in getting the tickets - they closed the parking lot... More
