Are you looking for a family-friendly activity in Frisco Colorado, consider tubing as your next outdoor activity!
Tubing is a great alternative to skiing because it can accommodate people of all ages. It allows you to breathe in the fresh mountain air and provides a sense of adventure and fun for all participants.
The Frisco Adventure Park offers many tubing lanes to choose from. Some paths are more mellow making them perfect for families with young children. Other lanes accommodate thrill seekers due to their steepness and more uneven terrain.
Whatever your preference and comfort levels are, you’ll be sure to have a fun time with your friends and family.
Here’s what you need to know when looking to book a tubing session,
Tubing keeps you closer to the ground, but there are still potential risks. That’s why it’s important to follow the hill’s safety guidelines at all times to keep yourself and others safe.
Frisco Adventure Park states that:
- Riders must be a minimum of 36 inches (3 feet) tall.
- To use the magic carpet which gives you access to the hill, everyone must have a valid lift ticket.
- Tubing while impaired or intoxicated in any way will not be allowed as it poses a risk to you and other tubers around you.
- One person can sit in a tub at a time. No sharing or sitting on someone’s lap.
- You must follow the lane attendant’s directions. Only proceed forward when they give the all-clear.
- When you reach the bottom of the hill move out of the way quickly so the next group can go. Important to note here, you should always be looking to the top of the hill when walking past other lanes to prevent collisions.
To ensure that your group will have access to the hill and all its lanes, you’re required to make a reservation ahead of time. While walks-in can be accepted, it’s only if there is space still available.
It’s advised that you arrive up to 30 minutes before your reservation time. This will allow you to check-in, get ready for the day, and refresh the safety guidelines.
Once you’ve made your reservation, you’ll be asked to sign a participation waiver. Without this waiver, you will not be permitted to ride. You will also have to make the payment in full when booking your reservation.
Reservations can be made online or by calling 970-668-2558.

Everyone has the option of paying either an hourly rate or a full day rate.

If you wish to cancel your reservation you must do so by 5:00 p.m. the night before your tubing appointment to avoid being charged $10 per person, per hour cancellation fee.
You must call the cancel ahead of your appointment before your scheduled time starts. Failure to call and/ or show up for your appointment will mean no refunds. If you’re looking to reschedule, changing either the time or the date of your tubing session, you also need to call.
What to Wear:
You’ll be speeding down the hill, with the cold wind in your face and snow spraying up at you. Therefore, you need to bumble up and keep warm.
It’s best to wear waterproof pants, a jacket, and boots since you’ll be playing in the snow. Windproof clothes are also good to have because even on a clear day, you’ll be picking up speed going down the hill.
Make you have a warm hat, gloves, and a face covering like a scarf or a ski mask to protect you from wind and blowing snow. Goggles and sunglasses are allowed but make sure they’re secure so they don’t fly off while you’re riding.
Remember to stay warm and wear a lot of layers.
You’re almost all set, but here are a few extra things to keep in mind when looking to go tubing in Frisco Colorado.
- If you’re a parent who isn’t planning on riding with your kids, you should still be accompanying them through the registration/ check-in process and safety briefing.
- Ski boots are discouraged. Stick with a winter boot when tubing.
- You can go tubing whether it’s sunny or snowing out, but keep in mind that the weather can impact the hill’s conditions as well as the recommended attire.
- The Day Lodge has lockers so you can store your possessions while you’re out on the hill.
- The weather and the track conditions could impact safety protocol, therefore, be ready to listen to the tubing attendants in case of changes.
Tubing is an excellent winter activity for people of all ages. It’s a fun and safe option if you’re looking to take full advantage of Frisco’s outdoor spaces.
