This place is crazy! I was frightened for my life ~ They insisted it was safe. My 4 year old and 6 year old had a blast.. I couldn't take it though! The staff was very friendly. Def exciting. Not for the fainthearted..

You will love this place! We are a family of 4 vising from Charlotte, NC and stopped by Sunday morning for a little fun before we headed home. We were the only ones there to tube and the staff made us feel welcome and could not have been any kinder. It was a blast and not having to walk up... More

We love tubing here in summer or winter. Our 5 year-old is petite and was so excited to finally be tall enough to join the fun. We will be back again and again!

We have been to Scaly in the winter and waited in long lines to tube in the snow. It was fun and we didn't expect summer tubing to top that experience, but it did. We were a group of 3 adults and 7 children and we had the place to ourselves most of time. We stayed for our entire two... More

We stopped by not knowing what to expect and ended up with a fun filled day for our three girls ages 4-9 years old. The summer tubing is awesome for the kids and the staff are extremely friendly. Mark treated us like family after just a few minutes and provided wonderful recommendations for a variety of local dining and shopping... More

We took the kids there fro summer tubing. They wet down the slide with water and down you go. they had a blast and I would recommend this for a good place to burn an hour. Reasonably priced and also has a nice cafe inside. It used to be a ski hill before they converted to tubing.

The kids had a blast doing this. Fortunately they brought along a friend which made it even better. I honestly didn't think they would tube for 2 hours & thought I would have to prod them to get my money's worth, but the staff made it exciting. I don't think my stomach could have handled the spin the slide employees... More
