I finally made it out onto the tubing hill http://bit.ly/cwvvn5 at the Frisco Adventure Park http://bit.ly/gfYzyB and had tons of fun.
My husband and I were hosting a Spanish exchange student who is living in Denver with my sister-in-law, while their family were out of town. The last thing that my sister-in-law said to Carolina was " Make sure Jane and Peter take you tubing". Years ago we had celebrated Easter with a large number of relatives at the Adventure Point tubing hill at Keystone. It is an event that is fondly remembered, particularly by the two relatives who were five and seventy-five at the time and went down with a twist in a circle of tubes.
As we now live in Frisco and this is only the second winter for the Frisco tubing hill, we decided it was time to give our local hill a try. Guests must check in about a half hour ahead of your booked time at the newly built Day Lodge to fill out the obligatory waiver (it was pretty painless), and also pay for and pick up your tickets. The Day Lodge is very nice with comfortable chairs and a snack bar for before or after your tubing. If you have folks who do not want to tube it is a great place for them to hang out. The snack bar serves pizza, hot dogs, sodas, beer, wine and Schnapps.

Once at the top you are able to choose from a number of tubing lanes, with different degrees of difficulty. A tubing attendant will instruct you on the correct way to ride in your tube. They will also ask you how fast you would like to descend and whether you want to go straight or with a twist. I chose to go straight as the hill will turn you anyway as you go down.
