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.

The Frisco Adventure Park is so much fun but it's always hopping with people so here's what to know before you go if you want to tube at the park.

- Reservations are not necessary but strongly encouraged b/c the timeslots fill up fast (especially during high season and holidays). You can purchase online before you get there.
- There are no lockers so you need to keep your stuff locked in your car or plan to leave it somewhere and hope it's still there when you come back. Plan to bring layers and multiple clothing options b/c temps/conditions change throughout the day.
- One hour of tubing will get you roughly four runs down the hill. Each run is followed by a 3-5 minute ride back up the hill and a 5-10 minute wait in line.
- You can connect up your individual tubes to go down as a group (they will show you how) or you can go alone. They will ask if you want to spin or go straight - spinning is obviously super fun. Straight is faster!
- If you pick the lane on the far right you won't have to trudge across multiple lanes to clear the area and you can get back in line more quickly.
- If you are tubing in the spring, go early in the morning. Temps may warm up around noon, the sun starts to melt the snow and then the runs get slower so you don't go as far or as fast down the hill.

Enjoy the runs! It's great family time and I highly recommend it!

We had a 6 year old and 8 year old and they loved it. They could have kept going after an hour, but we adults were wore out! We were able to go down 8 times. Definitely would recommend!

This would be great for little kids, but for teens who have some life experience, aka they've done water slides, roller coasters,skiing/snowboarding, they will give their parent an eye roll after the first 'ride'. My 15 and 17 year old rode once and wanted to go back to ski resort. Not knocking the park. Younger kids would love it.

Be sure to plan ahead and make a reservation for tubing - a great activity for a day off from skiing , or for those who don’t want to ski. We went ahead and booked 2 hours - the second hour is only $10 and that first hour goes fast! Lots of fun for all ages - not scary or crazy but worth it! Great time

We arrived just as they were handing out the green plastic bottom tubes. I guess due to the weather the tubing hill was slow and people before our group were walking down the hill some. When we arrived and after we watched the safety video they started handing out he alternate tubes. These were super fast and super fun. The magic carpet made getting back to the top easier. The young people at the top did a great job of launching us down the hill either with or without spinning depending on your preference. Pricey but highly recommended. Rental of the hill for an hour equates to about 6-7 trips down the hill on the lane of our choice.
